|Custom breast prosthesis offers new non-surgical alternative to costly reconstructive surgery
With over 288,000 cases of breast cancer diagnosed each year, many women feel left with few options after a lumpectomy or mastectomy procedure. The Radiant Impressions custom breast prosthesis offers a realistic appearance while remaining lightweight and cool against the body. Under the Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998, post-mastectomy and post partial mastectomy (lumpectomy) restoration must be reimbursed by insurance policies that insure the mastectomy procedure.
Designed by an orthodontist who was inspired to create a lifelike prosthesis as a gift for his wife after her mastectomy, Radiant Impressions provides a viable alternative to invasive, potentially disappointing, surgical reconstruction. The resulting prosthesis mimics the look and feel of a natural breast. Offered in 30 plus skin and nipple/areola tones, with options for freckles, veins and moles, every Radiant Impressions custom breast prosthesis is hand-sculpted to fit each individual woman’s chest wall, imitating the remaining breast’s size, color and nipple characteristics.
Radiant Impressions also offers options for partial mastectomy and surgical reconstructive patients. A partial prosthesis from Radiant Impressions offers an intimate, truly custom fit, addressing such needs as voids, depressions and of loss of projection. Reconstructed patients that choose not to undergo additional surgeries to construct a nipple and areola can achieve symmetry and projection with a Radiant Impressions custom nipple and areola.
The Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act (WHCRA) of 1998 was written to require insurance companies that cover mastectomies to restore a symmetrical appearance after surgery. Many women are unaware of their options and don’t realize that their insurance may cover a custom breast prosthesis. The cost of Radiant Impressions custom breast prosthesis should be measured in more than dollars; it restores wholeness and confidence. Compared to tens of thousands of dollars for reconstructive surgery a Radiant Impressions custom breast prosthesis presents a great monetary value in addition to sidestepping the risks of surgery and the inherent recovery time involved in the invasive operation.
“It may seem like a small thing to someone who has not been in our shoes, or bra for that matter, but it’s huge not having to worry every day if you look normal or not,” said breast cancer survivor Vickie W. “It’s so comfortable I forget it’s even there. It’s just a part of me now.”
“We hand-sculpt each Radiant Impressions custom breast prosthesis with care and attention to detail, always keeping the customer in mind. Radiant Impressions offers value and is a superior alternative to risky reconstructive surgery,” said Debbie Radde, Operations Manager at Trulife. “We take heart in knowing that each patient can be confident in their self-image and at the same time are able to live a normal, active, healthy life.”
