Mastectomy Fitting Information
If you are about to undergo, or have undergone, breast surgery you may be feeling a certain loss of control. Taking charge of the things that you can control is one way to minimize uncertainty.
Anticipate and plan ahead for your needs, and you will feel one step closer to a full recovery.
After surgery, a lightweight foam or fibre-filled form may be worn. At 6-8 weeks one of our qualified fitters will first fit you with a comfortable, supportive bra that suits your lifestyle. Zammy’s Lingerie has a large selection of bras to choose from.
At Your Fitting
We will match your breast with a breast form to complete the fit. It is important to have a proper match to keep the equilibrium of the body in balance, so as not to create spinal curvature, drop shoulder or discomfort in your neck and back, as well as balance problems. It is essential for good health to drop by and speak with our qualified staff to check your fit if you have had weight changes.
We have a beautiful selection of mastectomy swimwear and accessories to choose from available in Sizes 8-24. We may also be able to alter a fashion swim suit to meet your needs.
Check your extended medical insurance policy to find out if it covers all, or part of the cost of a breast prosthesis and surgical bras. When you come in for a fitting, Zammy’s will check your provincial health plan coverage (BC Pharmacare) as well. Have the assurance from your doctor that you are ready to be fitted and get a prescription for the prosthesis and bra, as some insurance companies require this proof.
We can help you after breast surgery. Zammy’s are certified fitters of external breast forms, post surgical bras and swimwear.
