The Blackwell Thoracic Compression Bra
This bra provides advanced compression for heart or lung surgery patients who need additional chest stabilization during their post-op recovery.
Many patients experience swelling and bruising after thoracic (chest) operations. Typical clothes and undergarments often rub against the incision sites, causing discomfort and delaying the healing process.
A Compression Garment With Compassion
The Blackwell Thoracic Compression Bra helps support the recovery of patients who have undergone heart or lung surgery. Designer Lea Blackwell, a breast surgeon, engineered this unique garment to provide relief from both swelling and proper support during this delicate time. While many post-op compression garments can feel binding or disruptive, Dr. Blackwell designed this compression bra is with patients’ needs in mind.
Features of the Blackwell Thoracic Compression Bra
- Complete Chest Support to reduce tension on the sternal incision
- Sensitive, Seamless Design that decreases skin contact on the incisions
- Customizable Compression with multiple independently-adjustable front clasps
- Feel-Good Fit thanks to high-end performance fabric, cooling mesh panels, broad shoulder straps, and a 3-inch-wide chest band
Engineered for Post-Chest Surgery Healing
The Blackwell Thoracic Compression Bra is specially designed for patients recovering from surgeries in which the chest was opened. The bra’s patented design reduces tension on the incision areas, especially on the sternum.
If you’ve had a mastectomy, augmentation, reduction, or other breast surgery, we recommend the Original Blackwell Bra.
