Post Mastectomy Care in Owensboro, KY & the Tell City, IN Area
At CherriCare we want our customers to know as much information as possible about their mastectomy needs. Cherri Lolley, the owner and founder, is a certified mastectomy fitter. We carry a large supply of bras and prosthesis from the best brands including: ABC, Almost U, Nearly Me, TruLife, and Classique. Below are a few facts to know before (and after) coming in for a fitting.
Medicare allows one silicone breast form every two years; two silicone breast forms for bilateral mastectomies. Standard silicone is the closest in texture and feel to a natural breast. It also holds its shape in water. Medicare allows one foam breast form every six months, two for bilateral. Breast form prostheses are considered a medical device and are regulated by the FDA
Choose CherriCare for your Post-Mastecomy Bras
Wearing the incorrect size bra that does not fit properly or forces the breast form into a different shape can cause the form to crease or to be distorted. Even a five-pound weight gain or loss can change your bra size. Mastectomy bras wear out and stretch, losing their elasticity quicker than other bras. A worn-out bra can cause your breast form to pull away from your chest wall, causing a heavy feeling and back strain.
We carry a variety of brands and styles to help accommodate each woman.
We sell prosthetic breast inserts in all shapes, colors, and sizes!
