Although many women who choose a mastectomy (removal of the breast) consider reconstructive surgery, others may choose a breast prosthesis.
A breast prosthesis can recreate the appearance of a breast shape under clothing and can also help to improve your balance and posture, which may be affected after a mastectomy.
A breast prosthesis is a silicone mould resembling the shape and weight of the breast, and fits into your bra to restore shape and maintain balance and alignment of the spine.
Breast forms are available in different sizes and shapes. Some are symmetrical, so they can be used on either side, and some are designed to be asymmetrical (used only on your right or left side). There are weighted and lightweight forms, forms for active sports, even forms for swimming. All breast prostheses come in various skin tones, so you are sure to find a colour that suits you.
