The Macom Explant bra is a post surgical bra suitable for post mastectomy or implant removal 

The explant bra is highly recommended for those recovering from breast implant removal surgery and similar procedures, this is because unlike other Macom bras which have expandable cups, the explant bra has retractable cups making it suitable for implant removal without replacement as the compression vest will help mould your own breast tissue into pre implant shape. 

Surgery types suitable for the explant bra include:

  • Breast implant removal (without re-augmentation)
  • Explant surgery and breast uplift (without re-augmentation)
  • En bloc capsulectomy removal
  • Full mastectomy

Key Features of the Macom Explant Bra 

  • Cups that retract while allowing balanced light expansion for swelling and aid in skin and tissue retraction
  • Moisture-wicking and fully breathable materials
  • A seamless design to prevent any rubbing or irritation
  • suitable for daily use 
  • the explant bra is available in black and clay 


What to know about the Macom bra for explant surgery

With a breast removal procedure there is a slight uncertainty what the post surgical result will look like, particularly if a patient has had implants for a number of years. Having had children, nursing can add to this unpredictability.

Due to the balanced power of expansion and retraction, the explant bra cups will keep residual tissue supported and help with skin and tissue reversal.

We believe this is the best bra for breast explant surgery patients, particularly because the design has a long line body and wider straps to help optimize fluid drainage.

The Macom Explant bra is designed for women who prior to breast augmentation were small chested; AA-B cup size. Patients with a moderate cupsize prior to augmentation; C cup or greater might want to consider any of the macom® post surgery bras with expandable cups such as i-Bra and Ultimate bra. 

 Macom Sizing 

The Macom Explant Bra has retractable cups so you only need to know your underband size as the cup will mould and retract to your new size. 

It is advised to try the product on immediately after receiving the item and also prior to your procedure. If it fits then it should fit post surgery.
