A breast prosthesis is an artificial breast form that fits in a bra cup to replace your natural breast. It is most often used after surgery for breast cancer, either after a mastectomy (removal of the breast) or a wide local excision (removal of a lump and some surrounding tissue). A well fitting prosthesis will help your posture and give you a completely natural look.
To help you choose the right prosthesis you need to consult a trained fitter and you need plenty of time and privacy. At Good's we have a fully qualified and highly experienced fitter, Mary Massey, who will ensure that you are fitted with the correct prosthesis. Fittings are done by appointment and are completely confidential.
You should speak to your Breast Care Nurse about your entitlements to free prosthesis and bras.
