Your patients are important to us

THEYA Healthcare’s post surgery range of underwear is designed for women who have undergone any type of breast, thoracic, pelvic or abdominal surgery. It is also ideal for women who are receiving chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

In developing the range, we spoke to 80 breast cancer patients as well as medical experts and incorporated their ideas into the design. The unique fabric and special design features actively support the healing process. Every garment is tag, seam and wire free, as well as being made from a super soft bamboo mix fabric. This means that it will not irritate skin, wounds or scars.

Clinical Testimonials

Patients at Spire Murrayfield have been using Theya Healthcare  
bras for post-operative support.  

They love the soft seamless finish and comfort the post-surgical  
bras provide. They are easy to wash and wear over their  
surgical dressings.  

Anne Tansey, Senior Breast Surgeon, Spire Liverpool & Spire Murrayfield

The materials are very nice compared to other companies I have used in the past and  
this one is very comfortable for patients to use, even after the recovery

Mr Floyd, Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Highgate Hospital & Spire Bushey

I am a breast care clinical nurse specialist and I work in a private hospital. I have used THEYA Healthcare bras on all of our patients undergoing breast surgery. Every single patient was very happy with the bras and felt they were soft, comfortable and very supportive.  

Patients gave us excellent feedback, they said how easy the bras are to put on even for the patients with reduced arm mobility post-operatively. These bras have made a big difference to the patient’s journey.  

Patients were very complimentary about us offering a post-operative bra giving them the option to avoid searching for a suitable bra in the shops.  

Alina Caruntu, Breast Care Clinical Nurse Special, Spire Bushey Hospital, Hertfordshire, UK.

I have been using the Theya front fastening Peony bras for my patients at a private hospital for around a year now. All three breast surgeons that I work with are very impressed with the product and totally endorse their use.The patients themselves love love the bras! In fact they often continue to want to wear them long after their treatment/surgery!

The best features are the front opening with the 3 row hook and eye detail to accommodate for swelling etc, the lovely wide, soft straps with the ability to shorten/lengthen them. The softness of the fabric and the fact that there are no seams. The inclusion of bilateral pockets and the breast shell forms are inspired. Patients say they appreciate the femininity of that and the flower design on the band.

97% of customers say THEYA Healthcare products are of high/very high quality

THEYA Healthcare designs and manufactures garments that promote healing, offer exceptional comfort and functionality, and look beautiful.

We’ve created a post surgery range of underwear for women who have undergone any type of breast, thoracic, pelvic or abdominal surgery. It is also ideal for women who are receiving chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

When designing and testing our post surgery range, in addition to getting advice from the medical community, we asked 80 women who had undergone treatment for breast cancer to share their insight. As a result, we are confident our products perfectly meet the requirements of women post surgery.

Our Post Surgery Range is ideal for:

 

  • Post breast & thoracic surgery
  • Post cosmetic & reconstructive surgery
  • Radiotherapy treatment (chest/abdominal/pelvic)
  • TRAM/DIEP flap reconstruction
  • Laparotomy/laparoscopy
  • C-section/post partum
  • Skin disorders

Designed to support healing

Reduces irritation

  • is made from a super soft bamboo mix fabric
  • no tags, seams or wires to irritate skin or wounds
  • elastic free under bust and waist bands are more comfortable and offer gentle support

Helps to prevent complications

  • accommodates swelling and facilitates compression control by being highly adjustable
  • does not inhibit/compress drainage tubes so helps lessen incidence and development of haematoma or seroma
  • high underarms are soft and protective to wound sites and cause no compression to the axilla and underarm, helping to reduce incidence of lymphedema

Improves patient experience

  • for patients experiencing reduced mobility after surgery a front fastening option (Peony) is easier to put on/remove
  • front opening makes examination, treatment and wound dressing easier/more dignified as there is no need to undress
  • the Fleur White Back Fastening Post Surgery Comfort Bra TL001D and the Rose White Post Surgery Comfort Short TL022 can be worn during period of radiotherapy
  • removable modesty pads can be worn instead of or with breast form to give shape

Fabric that supports healing

Anecdotally, we understood the unique bamboo mix fabric THEYA Healthcare uses for post surgery garments was improving patient experience, but we wanted to prove it.

In the first phase of our clinical study, carried out in conjunction with University College Dublin’s (UCD) School of Biomedical Engineering, our unique bamboo mix fabric (patent pending) has proven to have properties which support healing:
 

Bacteriostatic Effect

  • 97% resistant to gram negative bacteria
  • 92% resistant to gram positive bacteria

Superior absorbency

  • 59% more absorbent than 100% cotton
  • 36% more absorbent than leading competitor product

Better horizontal wicking

  • 19% better horizontal wicking than 100% cotton
  • 118% better horizontal wicking than leading competitor product
The second phase of the study addressing the clinical and psychosocial impact of the THEYA Healthcare range on patient in the immediate post operative period has now been completed and the results will be published very shortly.
