    Surgery can leave nipples in new spots, pointing in different directions, or overall, just more noticeable than before. After surgery, you may want something to protect and smooth out your nipples. All our bras are pocketed, and most come with removable modesty pads. Modesty pads can be great to achieve symmetry, hide nipples, and provide a little extra padding.

    Why I Had Explant Surgery: Almost exactly eight years to the day, this past January, I had explant surgery. I had not been feeling well for years and hoped the explant would help, which it did.
