The #1 Chest and Breast Support Garments for Heart Surgery and Breast Surgery Patients

For Women

Surgical Support Bra ~ Comfort, Support and Compression After Your Surgery


The AztecHeart™ Cardiothoracic Bra is designed to be worn immediately after heart, breast or lung surgery through recovery for optimum support of the breasts and the surgical incision. The bra helps to:

  • Stabilize the breasts and protect the surgical incision
  • Reduce tension on newly forming scars and helps prevent them from stretching
  • Alleviate some of the common “throbbing” sensations following surgery
  • Accelerate the healing process
  • Return patients to daily routines sooner

Soft, Breathable Fabric Against Your Skin

You need to feel comfortable and secure after major surgery. Our bra is designed to help you feel better physically and emotionally by giving you a little extra TLC during the healing process.

  • Soft cotton fabric against your skin
  • Contours, supports and stabilizes breasts
  • Wide, adjustable shoulder straps
  • Wide, adjustable side bands
  • Easy access for doctor check-ups
  • Side design allows for drainage tubes
  • Latex FREE

Preventing Dehiscence During the Healing Process

We developed our bra after heart surgeons asked us to help prevent dehiscence (incision separation or rupture) in female patients whose breast weight strained the suture wires. Dehiscence can be caused by the weight of the breasts pulling on the suture wires and separating the surgical incision. It is one of the most serious risks and can cause grave complications and longer recovery times.

In addition to heart surgery, doctors also recommend that patients wear the bra after lung and breast surgeries, including breast augmentation, breast lift and breast reduction because of its effective breast stabilization, comfort and support to the surgery site.

Our bra gives you support to help improve blood circulation, minimize swelling and keep your breasts or implants in their correct position so they are not pulling on your incisions, wires, stitches or your shoulders.


  • Our post-surgical bra fits chest sizes from 34″ to 52″
  • The bra is separable into two pieces for easy application on the most difficult to fit patients.
  • Side Velcro® closures afford ease to arthritic patients while avoiding the surgical site
  • Side design allows for drainage tubes
  • Adjustable to fit almost all patients, including women and men with large breasts
  • Latex FREE
