Breast Prostheses at Pink Ribbons Memphis
When diagnosed with breast cancer, some women are faced with the possibility of a mastectomy or lumpectomy procedure. The removal of a whole breast can leave anyone feeling discouraged, insecure and unhappy with her appearance. Every woman reacts different to breast cancer. Some will choose reconstruction and some will not. For those who choose reconstruction, Pink Ribbons Memphis offers a number of options including breast prostheses and mastectomy bras.
Let’s take a deeper look at what you can achieve from breast prostheses and mastectomy bras:
Breast prostheses can help you look and feel more confident about your body. A prosthesis was designed to ‘bridge the gap’ during breast reconstruction, giving you your natural shape from the very beginning. Breast prostheses are breast forms intended to look and feel like breasts. There are a number of materials used but the most common is silicone gel in a plastic skin. They look natural and can even be sculpted to include a nipple.
For those women who choose not to have reconstruction, Pink Ribbons offer breast forms from Amoena, TruLife, ABC and Anita. We offer both the standard pocket prosthesis and the self-adhering ‘contact’ prosthesis. For women who have had breast-conserving surgery, known as lumpectomy, and are left out of balance, we provide ‘balance’ prostheses that will help correct any irregularity in the shape and size of your breast.
Typically, breast prostheses are worn with a mastectomy bra. Pink Ribbons offers a wide variety of post-mastectomy ‘pocketed’ bras. From soft and frilly, smooth and seamless, strapless or sporty, our selection of mastectomy bras will fit any style. Choose from bras in a variety of colors, materials and brands.
