~ Many women feel that light weight prosthesis are the way to go. You need to remember that part of a proper fit is balance. If the prosthesis is too light your natural breast is going to pull the bra over and the prosthesis is going to ride up. There is nothing more uncomfortable and irritating than fighting with your bra constantly.
~ After breast surgery approximately 85% of women experience their other breast growing and changing shape. This is why it is very important to see a certified fitter every time you are ready for a new fitting. You may think that everything is fitting fine or that it is normal for things to shift. We will assess the fit and perhaps fit you in something more suited and comfortable for you.
