Silicone Breast Forms:

What You Need To Know


Why Wear a Breast Form?

After a mastectomy, breast-conserving surgery or even reconstruction, you might choose to wear a breast form (breast prosthesis) or shaper, to help you feel like yourself again.

Your goal when being fitted for a breast form is to create a natural body silhouette so that you feel balanced, comfortable and confident. High-quality silicone forms behave like a real breast, moving naturally when you walk and lie down.

But breast forms aren’t just cosmetic; there are important medical reasons to wear them. By compensating for the weight of a real breast, a properly fitting breast form helps prevent problems like lymphedema, bad posture or shoulder and neck problems.
