The words “breast cancer” can strike fear into the hearts of many women. According to statistics, approximately 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer at some point in their lives. The good news is that, through advancements in treatment and early detection, more and more women are surviving this disease.
But having a lump removed or a full mastectomy can take its toll not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally. And it can leave many women uncomfortable and self-conscious about their appearance.
At Brant Arts, we carry a full range of mastectomy supplies to help breast cancer survivors in the Burlington and Oakville areas feel better and more confident.
What are mastectomy supplies?
Mastectomy supplies include prosthetic breasts (silicone and/or foam breast forms), gels and cleansers, as well as bras, lingerie, and swimwear for women who have had mastectomies. Special post-surgery bras often include drainage pouches for women who are still recovering from their surgery.
Other mastectomy clothing includes everyday bras, sports bras, strapless bras, camisoles, tank tops and more. Where there was once very little to choose from for a woman who had had a mastectomy, the industry now recognizes the diverse needs of breast cancer survivors. Mastectomy bras and other clothing can be found in a variety of styles, colours, and materials so that they can truly reflect the personality and personal style of the women who wear them.
For women who choose to wear prosthetics, they can be found in a variety of sizes and skin tones. Also available are adhesives and attachable nipples in order to help give you the most symmetrical appearance possible.
Which mastectomy supplies are right for me?
Breast cancer can feel incredibly overwhelming but choosing the right mastectomy supplies shouldn’t. That’s why the team at Brant Arts is here to answer your questions and help you choose the products that are right for you.
For women who are facing or recovering from their surgeries, we will recommend post-surgery products that will be as comfortable as possible as the focus at this time will be on helping you to heal.
