Straight Talk: Ask An Expert | Understanding Breast Prostheses Options

Did you know any woman who has had breast surgery due to a cancer diagnosis is eligible for a prosthetic to provide balance?

Understanding what changes to expect after breast surgery, throughout the healing process and beyond plays an important role in every survivors’ desire to feel whole again. There are often imbalances that occur regardless of whether one has had a mastectomy, lumpectomy, or reconstructive surgery, which can result in an uncomfortable bra fit.

During our next Straight Talk: Ask An Expert session, we will discuss the many options available to make you look and feel great. Our experts will answer YOUR questions regarding Breast Prostheses Options LIVE.

Project Pink'd is excited to welcome Christina DaSilva and Sandy Jensen from The Renewed Hope Boutique as our guest experts for this series. DaSilva is a Certified Mastectomy Fitter and Jensen is a Clinical Cosmetologist and Certified Mastectomy Fitter. Both are employed with CHI Health in Omaha, NE.

What are the various types of breast prostheses available?
How do the options differ?
Where do I go to be fitted?
How soon can I be fitted after surgery?
How do you determine what type of prostheses works for me?
What options are there for a swimsuit?
What options are covered by insurance?
