Your custom breast prosthesis is designed to be easy to care for and flexible for your active lifestyle. You can wash your custom breast prosthesis as often as you like. Just gently hand wash using warm water and your own soap, and then gently pat dry with a towel.
Avoid sharp objects, jewelry, pins, etc. when wearing or handling your custom breast prosthesis. It can be punctured.
Your custom breast prosthesis can be worn for swimming. If you should notice a gain in weight of your prosthesis during or after water contact, it may have sustained a puncture, and could be absorbing water. We can repair any such damages within the product warranty described below.
Your custom breast prosthesis can be worn or carried onto an airplane in the passenger cabin. Because the cargo area of an airplane is not pressurized, you should not pack your prosthesis in luggage that will be checked, as this may cause your prosthesis to be damaged. It is best to wear the prosthesis on board, but in the event that you are unable to do so, refrain from packing the prosthesis under any other object as the material is soft and lifelike, and will take on the shape of anything placed on top of or against it.
Avoid prolonged exposures to extremes in heat or cold. Store your custom breast prosthesis at room temperature when you are not wearing it.
In very rare instances, it is possible for any product in contact with the skin to cause irritation or a rash. If you notice any skin irritation or rash in the area where your prosthesis is worn, stop using your prosthesis and seek professional attention.
