Getting You Back to… LIFE!

  • Our Mission

    Our mission is to make you feel comfortable every step of the way from pre-mastectomy consultations to post-mastectomy care. Our staff serves patients across Philadelphia and the Tri-State area will ensure that you receive the most up to date breast prostheses, mastectomy bras, and accessories for your body type and lifestyle.

  • Pre-Surgery

    You can be measured pre-surgically for specialized camisoles that will aid in your post-operative care.

  • Post-Op

    About 4-7 weeks post-operatively, we will review the options available for your breast prosthesis and intimates.

    This is not a process to be rushed, so allow sufficient time in your schedule for this very important visit. You will be measured for the correct size mastectomy bra and breast prosthesis at our Philadelphia area boutique.

  • Accessory Availability

    Seasonally, we will carry swim prostheses and swimsuits specifically made to hold the prosthesis.

    Partial prosthesis, prosthetic nipples, and specialty prosthesis are also available.

    If you are not sure what will be covered, please ask us—we are happy to help with your medical insurance questions.

  • What to Expect

    Private fittings with a certified mastectomy bra fitter will help you find the best shape, size, and styles that will help you look and feel your very best.

    Initial mastectomy bras, breast prostheses, and undergarments from our Philadelphia area boutique are often covered by insurance plans and additional garments are available for retail purchases.

“Debbie was wonderful! I was nervous when I first got there, but she put me at ease, made sure I was comfortable and explained everything to me. Asked about family history and what my doctor and I wanted out of my visit and my fitting. She spent a lot of time with me, (to) make sure I was properly fitted. Took extra time explaining about sizes and prosthesis. Then my visit was over, I left with a “new friend” and feeling much better about my body and my breasts, not being as critical of myself and when I arrived.

I can only hope that there are more clinician(s) out there like Debbie, because when women are dealing with cancer, or breast surgeries, we all need to feel comfortable and well cared for, and having her help me made a difficult time much more manageable.”

Unfortunately, once a patient leaves with their product it is no longer returnable due to sanitary reasons. If a product is a factory defect, it can be replaced with the same product/color/size.

A breast prosthesis should be worn in a bra that has a pocketed cup. The pocket will securely hold the prosthesis in place against the chest wall. If you wear a prosthesis in a bra that is not pocketed, your prosthesis may move shift, or come out of the bra.

You may wash the silicone breast prosthesis by hand with gentle soap and water. Then air dry it on a hand towel or padded dry. It will only take a short time to dry. Once clean and dry, return the prosthesis to the cradle (if not in use) or place back into bra pocket (if needing to wear).

With proper care, the prosthesis should last up to several years. Most insurances will allow for a new prosthesis every two years.
