This helpful guide to breast cancer prosthetics will help you choose the best ContourMed product for you.
No two women have the exact same definition of an ideal prosthetic. From size to comfort to athleticism, several factors must be considered when choosing the best breast forms. Not sure which of ContourMed’s range of products will best fit your unique needs? This guide to breast cancer prosthetics will give you a great start:
Do You Prefer a Form That Is Weighted or Lightweight?
Different women desire different weights and sensations from their breast forms. Some prefer lightweight prosthetics, which give them a freer feeling. Others feel more feminine and confident when they replicate the weight of natural breasts. Women who desire a more natural weight (such as, for example, a woman with a unilateral mastectomy) typically opt for one of our forms that is designed to replicate the weight of their natural breasts. Whether you have a lumpectomy or a unilateral or bilateral mastectomy, a ContourMed consultant can help you find the right form for you.
Do You Enjoy Sports and Water Activities?
Athletic enthusiasts can continue to pursue their favorite activities while wearing a custom breast form. Since all of our custom forms are water proof, you don’t need to worry about taking off your forms to avoid water before a dip in the pool or a sweat session at the gym. This is because at ContourMed, we craft custom breast prostheses focused on allowing you to continue doing activities that you enjoy.
Do You Prefer a More Secure Feel?
The last thing you need while wearing a breast form is to worry about it slipping out of place. You’ll have one less thing to worry about when you wear a custom breast form from ContourMed. While our designs vary, several of our prostheses feature a free and optional magnetic attachment system and/or security tab designed to promote greater security when you’re doing activities like playing tennis, golfing, and swimming.
As you examine various breast form options, one of your best resources is a ContourMed consultant. ContourMed has excellent models for all types of women; it’s ultimately up to you and your consultant to determine which breast form is ideal for your purposes.
