What is a breast prosthesis?
A breast prosthesis or breast form is an artificial breast that is used after a surgery in which the breast has been altered or removed. Whether the loss of the breast is permanent or temporary, a breast form can be worn to simulate the natural breast and body shape. Full breasts and partial breasts, known as equalizers, can be purchased to balance the appearance depending on what type of surgical procedure was performed. These forms come in a variety of materials (usually silicone, foam or fiberfill) and they can be worn inside a bra or attached to the body with a special adhesive.

Why would I need a breast prosthesis?
Many women who have been treated for breast cancer have had a surgery that leads to an alteration in their physical appearance. Sometimes these alterations are permanent; they may be temporary if reconstruction is scheduled for a later time. The common types of surgeries include:

  • Lumpectomy - removal of a breast tumor and some of the breast Modified/Simple
  • Mastectomy - removal of the breast tissue Radical Mastectomy - surgical removal of breast tissue and underlying muscle.

A silicone breast prosthesis is weighted and simulates the natural breast. One of its advantages is that it helps the human body to be symmetrical again and to remain in balance. When the body is out of balance following a surgery of this kind, other muscle-skeletal problems can develop. Back, neck and shoulder problems are common as well as a tendency for one shoulder to drop downward and inward while the other rises up.
 
What are the advantages of having a breast prosthesis?
Wearing a breast prosthesis is a personal choice. Many women want to wear one because they want to wear the same clothing that they wore prior to the surgery and they want to look symmetrical. There are other advantages to having a breast prosthesis: it can

  • give you warmth
  • protect your chest and scars
  • balance your posture
  • keep your bra from shifting or riding up
  • help prevent problems with curvature of the spine, shoulder drop, and muscular pain in the neck and back.

How soon after surgery can a breast form be worn?
It is a good idea to consult your physician. It varies for each woman depending on her surgery and healing. Most women will be able to wear a prosthesis (breast form) within 2-8 weeks after her surgery. Camisoles that have soft attachable prostheses can be worn immediately after surgery until the surgical site is healed.
