Life after a mastectomy
There are dozens of shapes, weights and sizes to choose from
Life after breast cancer is a gift in itself, but looking and feeling great is the ribbon on top. Gone are the days where a mastectomy patient must settle for second best in the breast form and lingerie department. Tracey G Prosthetics and Lingerie offer professional fittings by Amoena trained and certified staff. Breast forms have come a long way in recent times. There are dozens of shapes, weights and sizes to choose from, which will match as closely to your remaining breast as possible. There are also breast forms that can be used whilst swimming or exercising, so your lifestyle doesn't have to change. For ladies who have had bilateral surgery, picking the breast size you've always wanted to be is now an option. Post-mastectomy wear such as bras and swimwear have also gone ahead in leaps and bounds. No more do you just have nude, black and white to choose from. There are many beautiful colours and designs available for breast cancer survivors to try on and look great in. The other good news is the Federal Government will cover the cost of your breast prosthesis up to $400, per breast every two years for the rest of your life. Many private health funds also cover the cost of post mastectomy bras, so it’s worth giving them a call. So, no more filling the breast cup with tissues or fabric, or being uncomfortable all day in a poor fitting bra.
