Breast Prosthesis Programme
Total Number of Breast Prosthesis
As a woman your breasts are a unique and important part of your body.

Sometimes, a part or the full breast must be removed if cancer is found. A breast prosthesis or implant is used depending on the type of breast surgery being performed to remove the cancer, the need for other cancer treatments, risk and benefit for the patient's situation, along with their lifestyle and preferences. It can help the patient look as though the body part had never been removed and to help the person feel better and function as naturally as possible.

An external breast prosthesis is fitted for size and comfort and worn on the outside of the body where the breast, or part of it, has been removed. We can help you with custom-fit breast form that alleviates muscle strain or failed breast reconstruction and help you feel confident getting back to the activities you love to do.
