If requested by the retailer or patient, ContourMed will make the changes and send a second fit form for your approval. The average length of time in this process is forty-five (45) days from the date of your scan. This includes shipping time back and forth. The actual fabrication process is much shorter.
In many cases, ContourMed and the retailer will agree to forego the pre-prosthesis step and go directly from initial scan to final. Great care must be taken by the certified fitter to get the patient to symmetry prior to the scan. For these patients, the time frame is significantly reduced.
A custom breast form can never fully replace the look and feel of your natural breast, however, the choices in skin tone, nipple and areola styles help in matching the look of your natural breast as closely as possible.
While our bra recommendations for a custom form are not all encompassing, the wearer has a wide variety of bra types and styles to choose from. You can use your current pocketed bras with our custom breast forms, placing the form directly against your chest or in the pocket. Our customers love the security, comfort and confidence that comes with the close fit of their custom breast forms!
The second option for the Virage and Naturel is the magnetic attachment system that further secures the form directly to the chest wall when strenuous activity may be required. While both options come with no additional cost to the user, all of the ContourMed custom forms are designed to stay secure on your chest while wearing a bra.
