Lumpectomy & Breast Shapers
Question: Are balancing shapers and breast prosthesis only for women who have had a mastectomy? Answer: No
In fact, women who have had a lumpectomy or partial mastectomy, also known as breast-conserving surgery (BCS) are eligible to a partial prosthesis. The same sometimes applies to women who naturally have different size breasts and struggle with asymmetry.
If it’s bothersome enough that your clothes fit uncomfortably, a partial breast shaper might be just what you need.
Balance breast shapers are designed specifically to fill, cover and conceal almost any breast asymmetry created by surgery or radiation. They can also balance naturally uneven breasts. Our bra inserts come in a variety of shapes, sizes and thicknesses, to fit you personally and accommodate your unique needs.
In the United States, Medicare and most private insurance should cover partial breast forms with a doctor’s prescription, at a rate of one every two years.
Your fitter will guide you to finding just the right solution for your needs. A partial shaper can give you the smooth silhouette you want to see in the mirror, and body confidence every day.
