Custom Mastectomy Prosthetics Can Be a Less Invasive - and More Affordable - Alternative to Surgical Reconstruction
Hello and thank you for visiting the Chambers’ Apothecary blog! I hope that the information that you find here is useful to you and answers some of the questions that you may have, but if you need any more information or would like to discuss these issues in greater detail, please feel free to visit me at Chambers’ Apothecary.
I am pleased to announce that we offer a variety of off-the-shelf and custom-designed breast prosthetic solutions for patients seeking options that are less invasive – and more affordable – than surgical reconstruction. At Chamber's Apothecary, we use Amoena breast forms that cover patients through every stage of treatment.
All too often I see:
- Patients who have gone through costly, painful and emotionally draining reconstructions who say, ‘If I had known that prosthetics were an option, I wouldn’t have gone through all of this.’
- Patients who spend years not feeling like themselves because they didn’t know they had options or how to follow up on them.
- Patients using homemade prosthetics, ill-fitting compression sleeves and worn-out bras that should have been replaced years ago.
This shouldn’t happen. And it doesn’t have to.
Especially because Medicare currently allows you to get one prosthetic every two years and four bras per year. Additionally, patients wearing compression sleeves should be remeasured every two years (or any time there is a drastic weight change).
It is my goal to help you explore all of your options and help you choose the one that makes sense for you. Patient involvement is critical to any treatment plan, but too often it can feel like your health decisions are being dictated to you.
At Chambers’ Apothecary, we will help you find the solution that fits into your budget and puts you back in control so you can feel like yourself again. If the solution isn’t available off-the-shelf, then we’ll have one custom-made for you.
Feel free to visit us here for more information, and be sure to follow us on Facebook. You can also download our free app from iTunes or the Android store to stay up-to-date with the latest notifications from Chambers’ Apothecary.
