FAQ’s on Mastectomy
Losing a breast causes an imbalance to the body. If a woman goes too long without replacing the weight of a missing breast, she may experience neck or back pain.
You should wear a breast form:
- To restore balance to the body for good physical health
- To restore the natural silhouette to the body for good mental and emotional health
- To help avoid neck or back pain
Triangular? Teardrop? Asymmetrical?
