Protect Your Surgical Incision
The compression and support provided by a properly fitting AztecHeart™ Cardiothoracic Bra or Cardiothoracic Harness helps to stabilize the breasts, chest and surgical incision while allowing your lungs to expand for proper breathing.
Without support and stabilization, side to side breast movement can stress the suture wires, causing profound complications due to dehiscence, which is the separation or rupture of the surgical incision.
Wearing the correct size bra or harness immediately after surgery helps to:
- Protect the integrity of the sternal incision and sutures
- Provide comfort, proper compression and support of the breasts
- Relieve chest pain and reduce common throbbing sensations
- Reduce the risk of dehiscence
