Modesto Breast Forms, Breast Prostheses

amoena breast prosthesisBreast prostheses are commonly constructed of silicone gel in a plastic skin and used to simulate breasts.  A large variety of off-the shelf breast prostheses are available in a range of shapes and sizes.  Customized breast prostheses are created by taking an image of an individual's breasts and sculpting a mirror image.  They can also be designed to match color, and are specially weighted so they feel and move like the other breast.

Custom and off-the shelf breast prostheses come in varieties designed to be held in specially designed mastectomy bras, or worn with a standard bra while attached to the skin.

There are different types of breast prosthesis:

  • a temporary prosthesis is a soft, light prosthesis given to a woman at the hospital to wear for the first 6 weeks or so after surgery
  • a permanent prosthesis is properly weighted and fitted to match the other breast
  • a lightweight breast form is specially designed for swimming and can be worn inside a swimming costume
  • a partial prosthesis (also called a shaper, bra booster or shell prosthesis) may be suitable for some women after breast conserving surgery.

Breast prostheses can help improve balance and posture, and many women find that wearing a prosthesis helps them feel better about how they look after surgery.

Choosing the right prosthesis will depend on a number of things, including the type of surgery a woman has, her body shape, the cost and individual preference. It’s important for women to have their permanent prosthesis fitted by a specialist prosthesis fitter.
