Custom partial breast forms offer the confidence and comfort that are invaluable after a lumpectomy.
When people hear about custom breast forms, they often think of the prostheses worn by women who have undergone mastectomies. While breast forms can definitely meet the needs of a post-mastectomy patient, this is not the only way they are beneficial to the breast cancer survivor community. Custom partial breast forms are also popular among women who have undergone lumpectomies, a surgery that removes abnormal tissue from breasts while still leaving them largely intact. Changes in breast size and shape may still be noticeable for some patients, and partial breast forms can offer a wide range of benefits that women want in their post-lumpectomy prostheses.
Restoring Body Image
While every woman’s journey will be different, you may notice that a lumpectomy has taken a toll on your body image. Other people may not immediately recognize that there is any difference in your body, but this does not change the fact that your confidence may be impacted as a result of your surgery. Custom breast forms are an excellent option if you are looking for a prosthesis that will restore your body’s natural form. Designed to carefully match your preferences and offer a secure fit, these prostheses look great and help you feel like yourself.
Replacing Reconstructive Surgery
Reconstructive surgery is a common option for women who have undergone lumpectomies, but some patients may not be interested in this invasive and expensive procedure. Reconstructive surgery can significantly extend an already lengthy recovery period, while breast forms can allow you to get back on your feet faster and resume the activities you enjoy. Reconstructive surgery also comes with inherent health risks that you can avoid if you choose a post-lumpectomy prosthesis instead. Many women appreciate the how custom breast forms can eliminate the unnecessary worry and recovery that come with an additional procedure.
Expanding Wardrobe Options
If you decide to avoid reconstructive surgery after a lumpectomy, you may be hesitant to wear your favorite bathing suits or form-fitting dresses. You can find comfort in the fact that you are not alone. Many women worry about how their wardrobe options may change after their surgeries. However, custom breast forms offer a natural look for all types of stylish outfits. You do not have to hide behind a scarf or avoid fun social situations. From activewear and swimsuits to gowns and cocktail dresses, a quality post-lumpectomy prosthesis opens up a world of wardrobe possibilities that will draw attention in all the best ways.
