Post-Mastectomy Fittings and Products
Breast surgery can present both physical and emotional challenges. Our professionally trained staff are board-certified mastectomy fitters and provide outstanding care to patients as well as the greater community. The Boutique carries the most current and innovative selection of breast prostheses (also known as breast forms) and fits all types of surgeries or abnormalities of the breast.
Breast forms often help some patients fulfill the need to feel more feminine and restore a more positive body image. The forms come in varying shapes, sizes and colors.
- Full silicone breast forms for women who have a single or bilateral mastectomy. These forms restore balance and symmetry and renew body image and confidence.
- Full silicone attachable breast forms that adhere to the chest wall with a medical grade self-adhesive back layer.
- Partial silicone breast forms, also known as symmetry shapers, are used following a lumpectomy, reconstruction or to balance uneven breasts.
- Silicone adhesive nipples can help you appear symmetrical in your bra.
We also offer a wide selection of mastectomy pocketed bras that keep the form in place. Our post-operative bras and camisoles are soft and comfortable to wear after mastectomy or lumpectomy surgeries and come in a variety of sizes and colors.
