Prostheses, Breast, External

Definition : External prostheses designed for replacement of a breast that has been altered or removed. These prostheses are typically manufactured so that they may be attached to the body with special adhesive strips or, more frequently, worn inside a brassiere. Breast prostheses are made of materials such as silicone, foam, or fiberfill; they are custom made and/or manufactured in a range of sizes and shapes as well as different degrees of firmness. External breast prostheses are available as full breast prostheses and partial breast prostheses (known as equalizers); they are frequently used after mastectomy to restore a woman's body image or for breast enhancement purposes.
