(HealthNewsDigest.com) - New York, NY, April 6, 2019 – While planning for breast reconstruction surgery, many women wonder about what they should wear during the recovery period. In the first weeks home, you may want to avoid tight-fitting, restrictive clothing and anything that requires you to lift your arms over your head. Clothes should be loose and comfortable and they should slip on easily and close in the front with zippers or buttons. “After surgery, both physical and emotional factors determine how well and quickly a woman will heal,” says plastic surgeon and breast reconstruction specialist Dr. Constance M. Chen. “Small things, like being able to get in and out of clothes easily, can ease recovery. Also, women should know in advance that they may leave the hospital with surgical drains in place and they will need to know how to manage the drains and accommodate them in their clothing as they resume daily activities. Knowledge and some planning can pave the way to a smooth recovery.”
