Breast prosthesis for mastectomy patients
If you have decided against breast reconstruction but still want your breasts to look natural after surgery, there are many options for a breast prosthesis for mastectomy patients.
Breast prostheses are available in a variety of shapes and sizes and come in foam, fiberfill, and silicone gel. Some are even weighted. Many breast forms are designed to slip into a concealed pocket in mastectomy lingerie like bras and camisoles, as well as swimsuits, so you don’t have to worry about them slipping out of place.
Other breast forms have an adhesive back that attaches to the upper portion of your breast area. A certified fitter at A Fitting Experience will be happy to show you different breast forms and help you determine what will work best for you.
Two distinct kinds of breast forms may be right for your situation at different times post-surgery.
- Silicone prostheses – Silicone prostheses come in asymmetrical shapes for either the right or left side and look and feel like natural breasts. Symmetrical or pear-shaped forms work identically for either side of the body and can be worn upright or sideways to enhance cleavage and bra fullness.
- Foam or polyfill forms – These comfortable, lightweight prostheses are ideal right after surgery and beyond. They are appropriate for swimming and can be machine-washed.
