August 31, 2007, Newsletter Issue #80: Alternatives To Breast Reconstruction Surgery

Tip of the Week

Surgery is not the only way to have normal looking breasts after mastectomy. There are also prosthetic breasts in a variety of types to suit the needs of different women. Some attach right to the skin of the chest to be worn under the bra. Others can be inserted into special bras made for the purpose. The entire breast can be simulated in this way, or if only a portion of your breast was removed, you may be able to get a prosthesis to accommodate for the missing portion.

If surgery and implants are not right for you, talk to your doctor about the options that may be available in breast prosthetics.
