Re: Partial Breast Prosthesis

Thanks Optimisticmz. I knew about the knitted knockers but didn’t think of them with an option to “adjust”

Re: Partial Breast Prosthesis

Hi Topcatturner

 

It's Emily here from Breast Cancer Care.

 

I just thought I'd let you know that we have some email volunteers who have used a prosthesis alongside their reconstruction. You'd be very welcome to drop them an email for tips. They are:

Pat: pat@breastcancercare.org.uk

Sarah: sarah@breastcancercare.org.uk

 

I hope this helps.

 

Best wishes

Emily at Breast Cancer Care

Re: Partial Breast Prosthesis

I know I am not quite the same diagnosis but I had a lumpectomy last October and my operated breast is roughly 1.5 cups smaller than my other breast. I ordered a "knitted knocker" from their website (free for BC patients) and took a lot of the stuffing out (you order your larger size) and find this fits very well and is very soft and comfy. I hope this helps

Partial Breast Prosthesis

Having had a single mastectomy with immediate reconstruction I now have quite a difference in breast size and a concave cleavage. Lipomodelling has been offered, to be done in approximately six months but in the mean time I need a bit of help to even out. Can anyone recommend any “chicken fillets” for value and comfort please Thank you
