What can I expect during a fitting?
About six to eight weeks after breast surgery it will be time to see the postmastectomy fitter. Women who have had a mastectomy should be able to wear a weighted prosthesis at this time since their incision should be healed. Women who experienced breast conserving surgery will also benefit from a postmastectomy fitting as there are partial prostheses to help fill in the missing portion of their breast and provide symmetry. Most private insurance plans have coverage for breast prostheses and bras. If you are in doubt about your coverage, call the number on your insurance card and inquire.
