Comfortable clothing

You may need to wear special bra after transplant to get used to the shape and size of your breast and to protect the wound. It is also recommended to wear only natural fabric until the wound has healed properly.

Mammograms

Regular screening is required after placement of implant to check if the implant is working well and not causing any harm to the normal tissue. It is also important to check if there is any malignancy in the breast tissue.
