Mastectomy Products

Taxonomy Code: LH-5000.4980

Programs that supply breast prostheses (artificial breast forms that can be used after surgery in which the breast has been altered or removed) which are worn to simulate the natural breast and body shape; mastectomy bras which have pockets to hold the prostheses; and postsurgical camisoles. Breast forms may be full or partial breasts, known as equalizers, that can balance the appearance depending on what type of surgical procedure was performed. The forms come in a variety of materials (usually silicone, foam or fiberfill) and can be worn inside a bra or attached to the body with a special adhesive. Advantages of having a breast prosthesis include help balancing one's posture and prevention of problems with curvature of the spine, shoulder drop and muscular pain in the neck and back. Most women are able to wear a prosthesis (breast form) within 2-8 weeks after surgery. Camisoles that have soft attachable prostheses can be worn immediately after surgery until the surgical site is healed.
