Helpful Advice :
🌺 Medicare funding of $400 for single breast surgery following Breast Cancer diagnosis ( $ 800 for bilateral surgery ) is available for all women who have a Medicare Card. This funding is available every two years if required.
🌺 Women’s weight often alters over time. It is always advisable to have fittings reviewed annually to ensure comfort.
🌺 Post surgery bras are designed to give women maximum comfort and support. They have pockets inside to carry the breast form which provides greater confidence for women.
🌺 It is important to launder the bras regularly and also the breastform. Daily washing especially in the hot weather is advisable.
🌺 Breastforms have a two year warranty only. They can perish and they can split, so always take very good care.
🌺 Keeping it clean: Never expose to piercings such as brooches and badges, pet’s claws etc. Once the surface of the silicone has been punctured the product’s warranty is invalid. Always take good care!
🌺 Breastforms can be worn in the sea and the chlorinated pool. Again, always remember to keep the surface nice and clean.
