Augmentation Bra with Ice Packs
This finely-detailed bra features completely adjustable placement of shoulder and front closures, ensuring safe, firm, and comfortable support for sensitive post-surgical breasts. This enhanced design includes conveniently placed pockets to enclose ice packs for increased comfort and accelerated healing.
Product description: The augmentation bra with ice packs offers complete medical-grade compression and support for the breasts using reinforced Nylon/Lycra®. Zippered front closure and adjustable hook-and-eye shoulder strap fasteners enhance stability and protection of sensitive surgical sites. Molded cups provide gentle contouring and lift. Ice gel packs included. Available in beige, white and black.
Common post-surgical uses: Nouvelle’s augmentation bra with ice packs is ideal for use following a variety of procedures: breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty), breast augmentation (augmentation mammaplasty), breast lift (mastopexy), lumpectomy, and breast reconstruction following mastectomy.
Flawlessly fashioned: Nouvelle’s exclusive medical-grade designs cannot be found in retail stores. We proudly offer only latex-free products MADE IN THE USA. Our garments use a 55% Lycra®/45% nylon content for a smooth, comfortable feeling next to healing skin. This fabric combination ensures garments never lose compression integrity with continual use and appropriate laundering.
Detail highlights: The difference between our products and mass-produced retail offerings is in the details. In an effort to minimize any discomfort experienced during post-operative healing stages, we carefully scrutinized every stitch, every panel, and every possible way the augmentation bra could help in the healing process. Most undergarments readily available through retail chains are simply not made with this level of care or quality. Three distinguishing characteristics:
1. Fabric structure. Featuring four-way stretch and memory, each bra can withstand numerous washes, endure extremely long wear times, and miraculously retain original shape and quality. All designs have been through rigorous testing and meticulous scrutiny to ensure complete comfort and enhanced efficacy of every angle, seam and compression area.
2. Quality craftsmanship. Nouvelle designs have a reputation for superior craftsmanship. Our garments offer distinctly soft, silky textures so comfortable against sensitive surgical areas, you may be tempted to continue wearing them long after healing. We use only the finest fabric available, and hand-inspect each seam and stitch to ensure garments are soundly, solidly constructed.
3. Comfort. Realizing post-operative healing stages can be uncomfortable, we paid particular attention to every conceivable way the fabric of the augmentation bra touches the skin. Stitches are constructed so they are perfectly flat, so as not to aggravate incisions. Zippers and hook-and-eye closures are never in danger of contacting the skin. Not a single design uses metal wires or stays.
Benefits: When applied correctly, compression wear can increase blood circulation around surgical areas to accelerate healing, diminish swelling, and flush out harmful fluids. In the event of sudden movements such as sneezing or coughing, the garments help protect and stabilize the surgical site, minimizing discomfort. The result is not only a shorter recovery time, but a cleaner surgical area with minimal scarring.
Instructions: Place gel packs in refrigerator for 1-2 hours. Insert directly into bra pocket openings. Packs are reusable and will stay cool for hours. After ice packs are in place, wrap garment around breasts, fasten hook-and-eye shoulder strap closures, and zip up front to apply compression.
Care: Wash by hand or machine using cold water and mild soap. Line or gentle machine dry only. Be careful to remove ice packs prior to laundering.
Sizing: Use the size charts to determine your proper fit ($10 surcharge for 2X-Large).
Consider buying two: A good rule of thumb is to purchase duplicate garments so you always have a backup. The key to a successful surgical result is consistent compression, so you will want to ensure the site is always protected and secure.
