Our 3 Steps to Recovery
Over the years we at Silhouette have listened to our clients and health care professionals and found a 3-step program to be the most successful.
1. Prior to & Post Surgery Weeks 1 - 6
We recommend the Post Surgery Camisole (with built-in shelf bra), designed for comfort and featuring a step-in entry. The Post Surgery Camisoles come come with attachable pouches for drainage tubes and include lightweight fibre fill breast forms. Following surgery, most women find these garments to be helpful and much nicer to wear than bandages and a hospital gown. Their soft cotton fibres and ease of wearing make them the perfect choice.
2. Post Surgery Weeks 3 - 8
As you heal, support and comfort will be essential. The Sleeper Bra features front closure hooks, making it easy to wear and fasten during post surgery healing.
3. Post Surgery Week 6 - 4 Months
Now that your healing is well underway we recommend you be fitted by our certified staff with a mastectomy bra and prosthesis chosen with your personal needs in mind. Studies have shown that returning your natural balance is important for future physical and mental well being.
