Why buy a Prosthetic Bra after a Mastectomy Surgery?



Time Reading: 3 minutes

A mastectomy is the surgical removal of one or both breasts in order to treat or prevent the risk of breast cancer. Statically speaking, more than 100,000 U.S. women undergo some form of mastectomy each year. After this tough procedure some medical practitioners instruct their patients to get a mastectomy bra.

The Mastectomy bras are designed with pockets to hold a prosthetic breast, which will restore the patient's usual appearance after surgery. This bra looks like a regular one, but it's built with different features to make it more comfortable and better support. It comes with pockets, soft lining, front clasp, non-wired, thick under-band, wide adjustable straps and supportive seams. 

The breast prosthesis it's essential to wear in order to maintain the natural body shape. Failing to use a prosthetic bra can result in developing problems such as having one shoulder that drops down as it takes more weight, muscle-skeletal problems, and skin problems in the area of the surgery because the chest or the scar isn't protected like before.

Most females that use mastectomy bras tell us that it helps them with their confidence and may produce a more natural and balanced look under clothes.
