Post Mastectomy
prosthetics and accessories



A certified mastectomy fitter, who is trained and experienced, can assist you in selecting and fitting the appropriate prosthesis and mastectomy bra that meets your individual needs.

There are various types of post-mastectomy and lumpectomy prostheses, also known as breast forms.

The type of prosthesis required is determined by the amount of breast tissue that is removed. A prosthesis can be worn against the skin, inside the pocket of a mastectomy bra, or attached to the chest wall. They are designed to look feminine while ensuring comfort.

Medicare and some other insurance plans will pay for one breast prosthesis per year.

Most insurance companies will cover 2 to 4 mastectomy bras per year, provided that you submit a prescription from your provider.

Ask your provider for more information about certified mastectomy fitting services in the area.
