If damage does occur, being able to repair your silicone breast prostheses properly will ensure their longevity and effectiveness.
Why choose silicone breast forms?
After a double mastectomy, women often feel less feminine or self-conscious about their figures. Having a partial breast or full mastectomy is an incredibly brave decision and does not make a woman any less beautiful. Many women do choose, however, to use breast forms to balance their silhouette and achieve symmetry in their mastectomy bras.
Silicone breast forms are an ideal alternative to undergoing surgery for breast reconstruction, which can be harrowing and introduces additional health risks.
Silicone breast prostheses come in a variety of forms, but all are designed to fit smoothly and seamlessly under your clothes. The adhesive models adhere to the chest using special adhesive, while other silicone breast form models are designed to sit in the pockets of mastectomy clothing.
Mimicking the weight and movement of your natural breast tissue, silicone breast forms are the most natural-looking breast prostheses on the market. They will even warm to the temperature of your body.
Caring for your silicone breast prostheses
Most silicone breast prostheses come with instructions for their care, but generally, they are low-maintenance and caring for them is simple.
Your types of breast forms should be washed every day. It can be done quickly and easily and will keep them fresh. Silicone breast forms should be hand washed in lukewarm water with a gentle soap or a breast care foam cleaner. The silicone gel foam breast forms should be laid to dry on a towel.
Store your silicone breast forms in the same box they came in. This will help them to hold their shape for longer and keep them safe.
Though sturdy, silicone breast prostheses should be kept away from sharp objects, as well as keeping the breast forms away from powders and perfumes, which can prevent the breast forms from sticking correctly to your body.
