Breast cancer and body image

Breast cancer can be a challenging experience for women, and it can lead to significant changes in their body image. For some women, having a prosthesis may be a temporary choice before undergoing breast reconstruction surgery. However, some women may choose not to have reconstruction find it suitable to wear a breast prosthesis long term.

While some women may not feel affected by the changes, others may find accepting them hard. If you are struggling, you can get further support by reading this Pearl guide, which discusses topics like body image and relationships after treatment. This guide will address many of your breast prosthesis information needs and concerns.


What is a breast prosthesis?

A breast prosthesis is an artificial breast form that is used to replace the shape of a whole or part of the breast that has been removed. It can be fitted into a bra cup with or without a specially designed pocket. Pearl breast prostheses are made up of soft silicone gel encased in a thin film. They are moulded in a manner that resembles the natural shape of a woman’s breast or a part of it. The outer surface is soft and smooth and may include an outline of a nipple.

 When should I fit or start wearing a breast prosthesis?

After mastectomy, once your scar area is fully healed and swelling has gone down (usually within six to eight weeks), you can be fitted for a permanent silicone prosthesis.

 Breast prosthesis characteristics

Weight: Pearl silicone prostheses come in different weights, e.g. 500g, 800g, 1000g, 1200g and 1500g. Choosing the right weight for a silicone prosthesis is essential. If you prefer a balanced feel, a full-weight prosthesis that matches the weight of your other breast might be the best option.

 Full prosthesis: This prosthesis is designed to go straight against the chest wall where all breast tissue has been removed include an outline of a nipple.


When should I fit or start wearing a breast prosthesis?

After mastectomy, once your scar area is fully healed and swelling has gone down (usually within six to eight weeks), you can be fitted for a permanent silicone prosthesis. 

Skin colour: While it may not always be possible to find an exact match, several prostheses come in different colours that can match your skin tone. Choosing a prosthesis that closely matches your skin tone is highly recommended to help you feel more comfortable and confident. Some women prefer to make or purchase a cover for their prosthesis that matches their skin tone more closely.


The prosthesis fitting

When going for a prosthesis fitting, come with a well-fitting bra and a plain, light-coloured top. This makes choosing a prosthesis that gives you a good shape is more effortless. Wear a top that can be put on and taken off quickly and easily. You could also take a variety of tops with different necklines.

During the fitting process, you can expect to have ample privacy. You will have the opportunity to examine yourself in a mirror to see how the prosthesis looks both in your bra and under your clothing. Furthermore, you will be presented with various product sizes and have plenty of time to make the best selection.

How to care for your prosthesis

The prosthesis fitter will provide important information on how to care for your specific type of prosthesis. Following their advice, you can ensure that your prosthesis lasts several years. Generally speaking, you should take care of a silicone breast prosthesis as you would care for your skin. This means washing it daily with warm, soapy water and drying it with a towel.

When you are not using your prosthesis, store it in the box, it came in. Avoid catching it on sharp objects like rings or pins, as these may cause damage and lead to silicone leakage. If the prosthesis does become damaged, you can temporarily seal any tears with a sticky plaster.

Pearl Oncology Specialist Hospital, in partnership with Sebeccly Cancer Care, provides clinical expertise, tailored information and emotional support to thousands of people coping with breast cancer.

Nurturing Wellness: A Guide for Cancer Patients and Caregivers


Living with cancer, whether as a patient or caregiver, can be a challenging journey. It’s essential to prioritize wellness during this time to support physical, emotional, and mental well-being. In this article, we’ll explore practical tips and strategies to nurture wellness for cancer patients and caregivers alike.

Prioritize Self-Care:

  • Caring for yourself is crucial during the cancer journey. Make time for activities that bring you joy and relaxation, whether it’s reading, listening to music, or practicing mindfulness techniques like meditation or yoga. Remember to nourish your body with healthy meals and stay hydrated.

Stay Active:

  • Regular physical activity can improve mood, energy levels, and overall well-being. Find activities that you enjoy and can safely participate in, such as walking, swimming, or gentle stretching exercises. Even short bursts of activity throughout the day can make a difference.

Seek Support:

  • Don’t hesitate to reach out for support from friends, family, or support groups. Connecting with others who understand your experience can provide comfort and reassurance. Additionally, consider seeking professional support from counselors or therapists who specialize in cancer care.

Practice Mindfulness:

  • Mindfulness practices can help reduce stress and promote emotional resilience. Take moments throughout the day to pause, breathe deeply, and focus on the present moment. Mindful activities like journaling, gardening, or simply enjoying nature can also be beneficial.

Communicate Openly:

  • Effective communication is essential for both patients and caregivers. Share your thoughts, concerns, and needs with your healthcare team and loved ones. Be open to asking questions and seeking clarification about your treatment plan or caregiving responsibilities.

Maintain Routine:

  • Maintaining a sense of routine can provide structure and stability during uncertain times. Establish regular daily habits and routines for sleeping, eating, and engaging in activities that promote well-being.

Stay Informed:

  • Knowledge is empowering. Stay informed about your diagnosis, treatment options, and potential side effects. Ask your healthcare team for reliable resources or educational materials to help you better understand your cancer journey.

Practice Gratitude:

  • Amidst the challenges of cancer, finding moments of gratitude can bring perspective and positivity. Take time each day to reflect on things you’re thankful for, whether it’s the support of loved ones, moments of joy, or milestones achieved.
