Choosing A Prosthesis

Breast prostheses can be bought from medical supply stores, catalogs and specialty lingerie stores. Check with your health insurance company to see if and how your prosthesis is covered. Different companies have different policies.

You can also have a prosthesis custom made for you, which is more expensive. A custom-made prosthesis will have a much more precise match to your own breast shape.
