Discover the Benefits of Custom Breast Prosthesis

When it comes to non-surgical breast reconstruction, nothing beats the comfort and fit of a custom breast prosthesis. Tailored to your unique size, shape, color, and surgical needs, our custom breast forms are designed to feel completely natural. Imagine going about your day and forgetting you're even wearing one—that’s when we know we’ve done our job well.

Why Choose a Custom Breast Prosthesis?

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women worldwide, with one in eight women expected to be diagnosed in their lifetime. After breast cancer surgery, silicone breast prostheses offer a life-like feel and visual balance, significantly improving the quality of life for many women. Our custom breast forms set new standards in individualized care.

Personalized to Perfection

Each custom breast form is a handmade, unique piece designed precisely to match your body’s contours. Using a 3D scan of your chest, we create a form that fits your exact specifications, including:

  • Base and back design
  • Cup size
  • Skin tone 
  • Nipple type

We offer several customizable options to suit your lifestyle, such as a patented air chamber for volume adjustment or Comfort+ technology for temperature regulation. These features make our breast forms ideal even for complex fittings after surgeries like unilateral or bilateral mastectomy, lumpectomy, or breast-conserving surgery.

The Custom Breast Prosthesis Experience

1. Consultation with Your Fitter:
If you've had a mastectomy, lumpectomy, or reconstruction, a custom-made breast prosthesis might be right for you. Schedule a consultation with your fitter to learn about the benefits and decide if it’s suitable for you. During this pre-scanning consultation, your fitter will review expectations, show you color options, discuss payment, and explain the scanning process.

2. Personal Scan Session:
Using state-of-the-art 3D scanning technology, your fitter will take precise scans and reference pictures of your torso. This ensures the prosthesis fits perfectly. The scan files are then securely transmitted to our Custom Design team, who use CAD-based engineering to create your custom breast form.

3. Final Appointment:
When your custom breast prosthesis is ready, you’ll be contacted to schedule a personal fitting. Initially, you’ll be fitted in the bra used during the scan. Feel free to try different bras later to see which styles complement your new prosthesis best.

Payment Options and Insurance

Most insurance plans cover custom breast prostheses. Check with your provider to see if you have this benefit. You can also use HSA/FSA accounts or medical credit cards. Alternatively, you can choose to pay out-of-pocket for your prosthesis. Contact Bras and Honey Mastectomy specialists in San Diego if you would like more information, Tel: 619-282-1178
