Recovering from breast surgery can be challenging. Whether you’ve had a mastectomy, reconstruction, lumpectomy or augmentation, there’s bound to be some soreness and limited range of motion during this time. By prioritizing your comfort, however, you can make the process a little bit easier as you feel better each day. One of the best ways to make sure you’re comfortable during recovery is by choosing post-surgery clothing designed specifically for breast procedures. This will allow you to feel better as you heal and adjust to the changes to your body.
Our mission at AnaOno is to make sure patients, survivors and thrivers feel their best during recovery and beyond. Learn more about what makes for the best post-operation clothing and find out where to order some pieces for your own recovery or that of a loved one.
We know finding a bra after breast surgery can be overwhelming. That's why we do what we do. When it comes to fit, the needs for those of us who've had a mastectomy, reconstruction, radiation, lumpectomy, or other breast surgeries are very different than the standard underwire and molded cups often found in most bras.

Often times we are not exactly thrilled with the initial results from our reconstruction surgeries, so when we are physically, mentally and medically ready, some of us choose to undergo a breast revision surgery. If and when you decide to undergo a breast revision surgery, you deserve just as much comfort, support, and love as you did through your previous surgeries, whether they were 6 months, 5 years or 10 years ago.
No matter if you are best friends with your sister, or have a complex, layered relationship, it can be scary and emotional when it comes to caring for them through a genetic mutation diagnosis or a breast cancer diagnosis. Whether she is having a mastectomy, breast reconstruction, explant or revision surgery follow along for what to say, do and give to your sister in need.
When understanding surgery options and the risks associated with a mastectomy, you don’t necessarily expect implants to be one of them. This morning, Allergan, a leading manufacturer of breast implants, announced they are voluntarily recalling their textured breast implants from future use in breast surgeries, including breast augmentation and reconstruction.
We know that sometimes, it may feel that our doctors don’t always get it. Especially how we may feel after leaving their office. This is not the case with Dr. Jonathan Bank, a plastic surgeon who’s on a mission to help those of us with mastectomies embrace our scars and newly reconstructed breasts (aka (f)oobs) with pride & confidence. And we just had to share it with you!
In 1998, a federal law went into place that provides protections to patients who choose to have breast reconstruction in connection with a mastectomy. Even though the Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act (WHCRA) has been around for nearly 20 years, we are contacted far too often by women wishing they had the choice to reconstruct, or knew that they even had the option following their mastectomy. We always advocate that breast reconstruction is a personal choice. It's your body, and it's your decision, but we all deserve to know more about our options.
