In collaboration with New Attitude™ we provide custom external breast prostheses of unsurpassed appearance and comfort for women who have had a partial or total mastectomy. Medical Art Resources, Inc. is the Midwest center for New Attitude™ Custom Breast Prostheses. The New Attitude™ prosthesis is distinguished by a unique lightweight design and proprietary new materials that look and feel natural. We work with each individual woman to fit your body contour exactly and design an external breast prosthesis that can be worn with a regular bra or without a bra under tight-fitting clothing. Your prosthesis stays in place and moves with your body. Our skilled anaplastologists create a symmetrical breast shape and a realistic color match. We offer a safe and predictable way to regain appearance and lifestyle without additional surgery.
A lumpectomy or partial mastectomy is the most common surgical treatment for breast cancer. Women may lose a significant portion of the breast with partial mastectomy affecting symmetry of the breasts. Following a lumpectomy the nipple may no longer be in a symmetrical location because the remaining breast lacks support. Off-the-shelf fillers do not provide an acceptable outcome because in an effort to fit everyone–they inevitably do not fit anyone. Only a custom-made prosthesis can restore symmetry because every patient’s breast contour is different following lumpectomy.
Custom-made prostheses are designed to fit the chest wall intimately resulting in improved comfort and security. This is critically important for women who have had a double mastectomy because the chest is not symmetrical after surgery. We work with each individual woman to develop breast prostheses that restore a natural appearance.
Our custom-made nipple prostheses are created for women who have had surgical breast reconstruction. We match the size, projection and color of your nipple with attention to every detail. Our soft silicone adheres naturally to the breast when worn within a bra. Adhesive is recommended when the nipple prosthesis is worn without a bra for added confidence.
