Recovering After Breast Cancer: Tips for Feeling Better

May 27th 2015 at 12:18 AM

Battling with breast cancer is one of the most emotional difficulties that a woman can face. You have enough internal dialogues to deal with, without having to cope with other people’s reactions. It may take some time to get your confidence back but there are some things that can help you on your way.

A mastectomy prosthesis is one item that many women choose to acquire to give them the look and even the feel of having a balanced breast. Actually, this is about more than looks. This balance can help you to keep your posture the same as before so that you eliminate other potential aches and pains before they get started.

Prostheses are made in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit your body. They can be made from different materials as well, depending on your needs. You may even find that getting a couple of alternatives is the way to go. For example, a silicone variety feels more natural but can be heavier and cannot be worn in water. On the other hand, a foam or polyfil variety is lighter and more comfortable post-surgery and can also be worn while swimming.

While some mastectomy prostheses are attached by magnets, many are made to be slipped into bras specifically made for that purpose. And bras are not the only garments made for prostheses. Now, you can find camisoles and swimwear made especially for you in mind.

Gone are the days of having no choice but to wear the one or two models of bras made to use with a breast prosthesis. Now, there are a variety of colors and styles of lingerie, helping you to regain your sense of femininity and allure. You can find sports bras and bras made to be worn with tops or dresses with low necklines as well.

One of the nicest recent innovations is that there are shops dedicated solely to these sorts of products. The people there know how to work with the issues that each breast cancer survivor faces. They understand what the advantages and disadvantages are to each and every product and are ready to help you choose what is best for your particular situation. These accessories are generally covered by medical insurance too.

There is no doubt that when you look good, you feel better as well. And for women following breast surgery, part of this is being able to feel just as beautiful and desirable as ever. Mastectomy prostheses and the garments made for them are one way to do so. To learn more about post-surgery garments in Santa Cruz please visit this website.
