Q. Is there a comfortable garment I can wear after my breast surgery?
A. Yes. A soft cotton fabric, front closure bra or camisole with pockets, puffs and drain management options are our recommendation, for comfort and restored symmetry.
Q. What is the benefit of wearing a silicone breast form?
A. Your body goes through a lot of adjustments after surgery.Properly fitted breast forms provide balance for good posture and can prevent back and neck problems that often develop when a breast is removed.
Q. When can I start wearing a breast form?
A. A substantial silicone breast form can be worn after 4 to 6 weeks recovery from breast surgery. A light temporary breast form can be worn shortly after surgery on a case-by-case basis.
Q. Do I need ad appointment to fit the breast form and mastectomy bras?
A. An appointment is not necessary - you are always welcome. However, an appointment will guarantee your time with us and helps us prepare. Either way, please allow about 45 minutes for a professional fitting, so we can ensure you are completely comfortable and satisfied.
Q. Do I get any government assistance for my breast form?
A. Ontario's Assistive Devices Program (ADP) subsidizes a single full breast form up to $195.00. For a partial breast form, the subsidy is $105.00. If you require two breast forms, the ADP covers each up to the full value.
Q. Do I need special bra for my Breast Form?
A. Yes, and we carry a great selection of every day and sports bras with pockets in the cups to hold your Breast Form in place. These bras are carefully designed to support the weight of the breast form.
Q. Does the government cover the mastectomy bras?
A. No, but they may be covered by your private insurance plan.
Q. Do I need to make an appoint for a bra fitting?
A. Appointments and walk-ins are always welcome. If there is a specific time that you would like to be fitted, an appointment can guarantee you will be seen right away.
