Breast Form Prostheses and Breast Enhancers for Mastectomy and Lumpectomy Use

Being told you have cancer is one of the worst things that can happen. Finding out you need to sacrifice one or both of your breasts in order to save your life can be, for many women, extremely difficult to hear. How we look to ourselves and to others is a fundamental part of who we are, and to suddenly face losing part of 'us' can be a horrible prospect.  We are here to help and can guide you through the process.

Breast Enhancers for Lumpectomy Use

If you have had a lumpectomy it can alter the appearance of your breast, making it sag more or just give the appearance of being 'less' than the other breast. In this instance we have a wide range of breast enhancers that can help fill out where the tissue has been taken, helping to give a more uniform appearance.  We can't guarantee a perfect fit, but we've grown our range to be the biggest in the UK so that we can offer more choice and options.  Send us an email to talk through your needs.

Breast Form Prosthesis - For Mastectomy Use Without Reconstruction

After a mastectomy, the first decision that is often made is whether or not to have reconstructive surgery. If you decide not to, then you will probably require a prosthetic breast, worn in the bra. Many women have turned to online sellers of mastectomy breast forms in search of a cheaper option than those prosthetic breasts available through hospitals. Browse our range or just tell us what size bra you wear, and we will endeavor to find you the best fit. Our new premium breast forms are light, comfortable, durable and comparable to the big brands such as Amoena.  Most importantly, they look natural and hopefully will allow you to learn to love your new shape in your own time. For those on a budget we also have our great value normal silicone breast forms in 5 different shapes.  Photographs of all the breast form prosthesis styles are in our shop, along with a size guide and helpful advice.

Breast Form Prosthesis and Breast Enhancer Options - For Mastectomy Use With Reconstruction

Even women who decide to have reconstructive mastectomy surgery may want to wait a while before taking such a big step. They may need time to heal after the initial major surgery, and may need to adjust to a big shock such as cancer before having more radical surgery. A silicone prosthetic breast is ideal for this transition period. It gives a great natural look, is extremely comfortable, and can help women get used to their post-mastectomy body. In addition, some women may require tissue expansion before they have breast reconstruction. This is a process where an inflatable breast implant is placed in a pocket under the skin and muscle of the chest. Over time, fluid is gradually introduced into the tissue expander to increase the amount of skin around the area that will eventually hold the implant after the reconstructive surgery. Even in this scenario, we can help thanks to our comprehensive range of breast enhancers. After the initial surgery, you may wish to use a larger style in your bra, and as the expander is increased in size you can reduce the size of the breast enhancer you use.

We want you to know that you are not alone and you can rely on us to do our best for you.
