Choose a day that is relatively free from other obligations and use it looking for prostheses. Taking off and putting on your clothes and seeing your incision is not only exhausting, it is an emotional experience.

Call the shops in your area that carry prostheses and schedule an appointment with a trained fitter. By making an appointment, you won't have to wait after you arrive. You will also have a trained professional working only with you.

  • Comfort
  • Balance with your remaining breast
  • What is needed to properly maintain the prostheses
