A variety of different custom breast forms are available through CountourMed, and each has its own distinctive set of advantages.
After undergoing a mastectomy or lumpectomy, you just want to feel like yourself again. With custom breast forms, you can enjoy the confidence and comfort of looking exactly how you want to without the pain and risk of reconstructive surgery. Best of all, with custom breast forms your options are limitless. Custom breast forms are offered in partial and full configurations, and in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes.
ContourMed utilizes patented 3D CAD/CAM scanning technology to digitally scan your chest wall, both with and without a bra, to ensure a natural, symmetrical appearance and level of comfort that is unmatched. With so many breast form choices, your decision comes down to your own personal needs and preferences. Knowing the differences between our four main custom breast form options should give you a good place to start the journey to enjoying life on your own terms.
Easily the most popular of ContourMed’s available forms, the Virage boasts the lightest construction and the greatest range of options. The Virage also has a magnetic attachment system, which makes wearers feel confident and secure. Its unique construction is typically preferred by those with lymphedema.
The posterior of the Profile is specially designed to fit to each wearer’s chest wall. This ensures a better fit and greater comfort throughout the day. Additionally, the Profile’s pliability allows it to adapt to sudden chest wall changes. Because of its natural feel and light fit, the Profile is a great option for active women who don’t want their custom breast forms to get in the way. This option is pursued by some women with lumpectomies.
A relatively new addition to the ContourMed lineup, our Naturel breast forms are similar to Virage, but weighted so as to mimic the natural feel of intact breasts. The natural feel of the Virage is also made possible by a unique sense of compression that is especially beneficial for those who have undergone unilateral mastectomies. Wearers can opt for the same magnetic attachment system that is available on the Virage.
The latest and greatest addition to our breast form line, the Silk is constructed from revolutionary Dermasol material, which makes the form feel surprisingly similar to natural breast tissue. The use of Dermasol is also advantageous for women who are sensitive to most materials. Dermasol will not cause rashes or other reactions for those with sensitive skin.
The weight of the Silk is most similar to the Profile, so it’s a good option for those desire something a bit lighter than the Naturel. Like the Naturel, the Silk is very pliable. Its unique latex construction allows it to adapt based on the temperature of the user’s body.
Once you have selected your custom breast form type, you can further customize it based on your skin color, size, and preferred system of attachment. If you are interested in learning more about your custom breast form options, contact ContourMed today at 501-214-6080.
