Lumpectomy is also known as breast conservation surgery or partial mastectomy. Lumpectomy surgery removes the breast cancer and unhealthy tissues from the breast area. This surgery is normally followed by radiation therapy to save as much breast tissue as possible. After lumpectomy recovery, a breast cancer survivor requires breast forms and shapes to resize the uneven breasts. HPFY provides multiple breast forms and shapes from manufacturers like Classique Inc., Trulife, and others.
Lumpectomy and mastectomy procedures are both performed to remove breast cancer. But the difference is that lumpectomy removes the cancerous breast tissues, and mastectomy removes the entire breast area and possibly a few lymph nodes under your arm. These surgeries are decided based on the patient’s condition and the stage of breast cancer.
During lumpectomy recovery, breast size becomes uneven because of the removal of breast tissues. Breast forms are used to make their size equal, also post surgical bra like lumpectomy bra & mastectomy bra is used for the same. Here are some benefits of using breast forms-
Lumpectomy also leads to imperfections and asymmetry. These may be visible after the effects of the surgery. Asymmetry can result from the amount of breast tissue removed or radiation therapy. In order to balance out the shape, you might want to consider lumpectomy recovery products like partial breast forms. Breast forms are designed to fill, conceal, and even out the asymmetry after partial mastectomy.
There are two kinds of breast forms available, either silicone breast foams or fiberfill foams. Silicone breast forms weigh and shape like breast tissues. Fiber foam is lighter and cooler, and it is also less expensive than silicone breast forms.
Breast forms come in two different shapes, symmetrical and asymmetrical. Symmetrical breast prostheses can be used on both sides, and asymmetrical breast prostheses are made for one side of the chest.
Breast prosthesis comes in multiple weights for women of all weights. Silicone breast forms are designed to be about the same weight as the other. It also depends on the amount of breast tissue removed during the lumpectomy.
Some breast forms come with air ventilation and drying methods. Breast prostheses feel too hot in humid weather. Make sure to buy a prosthesis that helps manage the temperature and increase comfort.
A prosthesis is desired after a partial mastectomy to fill up the space after lumpectomy recovery. HPFY provides you prostheses made of silicone, fiberfill, and foam in different shapes and sizes from manufacturers like American Breast Care, Wear Ease Inc., and others.
