There is a variety of options for women after different breast surgeries such as full mastectomy, partial mastectomy, lumpectomy, breast conserving surgery, and reconstruction. You too can enjoy the benefits that an ABC Custom Breast Prosthesis has to offer, such as comfort due to lightweight construction and a restored sense of wholeness as the prosthesis, which will only fit your unique body, will be worn directly against your chest wall.
Getting an ABC Custom Breast Prosthesis is as easy as 1-2-3!
A Certified Mastectomy Fitter at a Select American Breast Care Custom Breast Prosthesis Retailer, will work closely with you and guide you through the three-step process that will have you feeling secure and looking beautiful in a custom breast prosthesis in no time.
Step 1: Pre-Scanning Consultation
Your fitter will present to you the benefits of the ABC Custom Breast Prosthesis to help you decide if its right for you. During your pre-scanning consultation, your fitter will present and review a set of expectations, show you color options, discuss payment options, and detail the scanning process. This will give you an idea of what you can expect from your new prosthesis, and the scanning process. If you and your fitter decide the ABC Custom Breast Prosthesis is right for you, she will check the fit of your bra and breast form. She will look for specific bra and breast form fit characteristics to ensure your prosthesis will fit like a puzzle piece to your unique chest wall contours, and review color and nipple/areaola options with you.
Step 2: Personal Scan Session
On the day of your personal scan session, wear a separate top and bottom. Your fitter will begin the session by fitting you in the bra in which you were fit during your pre-scanning consultation. She will also review the scan process and provide to you some simple instructions. Next, she will apply a series of removable stickers to your torso and bra. She will then take a series of reference pictures and then scan your chest with a bra on, and off, using a state-of-the-art, iPad-based, 3D scanner. And that’s it!
After your personal scan session, your scan files will be transmitted to the ABC Development Team in Marietta, GA. The team of dedicated breast form designers will then use CAD-based, reverse engineering to create a custom breast prosthesis with accuracy and detail to your fit and color specifications.
Step 3: Personal Fitting
Your fitter will contact you to set up a personal fitting appointment when she receives your custom breast prosthesis. Your fitter will fit it to your unique contours and also present and review the care instructions and warranty with you.
Your fitter will initially fit your prosthesis in the bra in which you were scanned. Moving forward, feel free to try different bras. You may find different bra styles complement your new custom breast prosthesis!
Your new custom breast prosthesis will deliver in a beautiful pink suede case for storage and travel.
The case also includes a warranty card and care instructions.
