Pre- and Post-Breast Surgery Questions & Answers
What can I wear during the recovery period following my breast surgery?
Women’s Health Boutique offers soft cotton undergarments which provide drain management if needed. These garments
contain no metal hooks or elastic bands, and the fiber-filled pockets
offer you a more natural look.
What is a breast form?
breast form is a breast prosthesis worn inside a bra to closely
simulate the natural contours of your own breast. Forms are made from
silicone, foam or fiberfill.
Why is a weighted form necessary?
The form will balance the weight of the remaining breast and help you avoid shoulder, neck and back pain.
Why do I need to be custom-fitted for a breast form? There
are hundreds of shapes and sizes of breast forms available. Every
woman, every surgery and every breast is different. Therefore, the
fitting is highly individualized. Our Certified Mastectomy Fitters are
specially trained to help you find just the right form.
What do I wear when I swim?
swimsuits have pockets to hold the breast forms. Foam and silicone swim
forms are designed to be worn in the hot tub, pool or ocean.
After breast surgery am I at risk for lymphedema?
You may be at risk if lymph node dissection or radiation is involved. It is important that you talk with your physician about lymphedema prevention, detection and treatment.
