What is a prosthesis?
There are various types of post-mastectomy and lumpectomy prosthesis, also called breast forms. Manufacturers offer a wide selection of types, shapes, sizes, and colors.
The type of prosthesis required is determined by the amount of breast tissue that is removed. A prosthesis can be worn against the skin, inside the pocket of a mastectomy bra, or attached to the chest wall. Prosthetic devices are designed to look feminine while ensuring comfort.
