Breast Prosthesis in Fort Lauderdale
For breast cancer survivors in South Florida, it is important to understand your options when it comes to regaining your natural shape after mastectomy surgery.
While many women opt to undergo a reconstruction directly after a mastectomy, other women choose to avoid additional surgery. For women who do not want a breast reconstruction, a breast prosthesis is a great alternative.
Breast prostheses can help you feel like your old self. At A Fitting Experience Mastectomy Shoppe, we offer a variety of shapes, sizes, materials, and skin tones to meet your unique needs. Breast forms come in silicone or foam.
Foam breast forms are suitable to wear immediately after breast surgery because they are lightweight and comfortable. They are resistant to damage by saltwater or chlorine and are machine-washable.
Silicone breast forms are the most realistic looking and feeling prostheses which help many women adjust to life after a mastectomy more easily.
If you’re a swimmer, there are swim forms that weigh less than regular breast prostheses and are made from materials that will not be damaged by ocean or pool water.
Wearing Your Forms
To keep your breast forms in place there are several options. Some breast prostheses come with self-adhesive strips that attach the form directly to your chest wall. Other types of breast forms are best worn inside post-mastectomy bras and camisoles that feature interior pockets sewn into the cups.
At A Fitting Experience Mastectomy Shoppe, we have a myriad of clothing options as well as professionally certified fitters to make sure you get the best fit every time. Book a consultation so our compassionate and knowledgeable team can ensure your breast form is comfortable and natural-looking.
In our Margate, Florida store, we also offer custom breast forms designed to form to the natural contours of your body for the perfect fit.
We use state-of-the-art technology to scan your chest so that your breast forms will fit you flawlessly. We also offer a range of skin colors so your form will match your skin tone exactly.
