What is it and how it works

A breast prosthesis is an artificial breast that is placed in a bra, or directly on the skin, for use after a woman’s own breast has been surgically altered or removed.

Custom Breast ProstheticsWhether the loss of the breast is permanent or temporary, a breast prosthesis can be worn to simulate the natural breast shape. Wearing a breast prosthesis is a highly popular personal choice. Many women choose to wear one because they want to wear the same clothing that they wore prior to the surgery and they want to look symmetrical.

Other advantages to having a breast prosthesis include protection of chest-wall and scars, balancing of posture and the prevention of curvature of the spine, shoulder drop, and muscular pain in the neck and back. When the breast is removed, the skin is left flush against the chest-wall muscle. Ideally, this would be a perfectly flat surface that will allow a prosthesis to mold to the chest. Because of the varied body types and scarring, an off-the-shelf standard prosthesis will not work for all women as it may not lay comfortably against the chest leaving gaps, slippage, and unnatural appearance, and for some pain and discomfort.

At Cherry Blossom Intimates, we specialize in custom breast prothesis and intimate wear for post-mastectomy.
