What Is Mastectomy?

Mastectomy is the medical term for the surgical removal of one or both breasts, partially or completely. A mastectomy is usually carried out to treat breast cancer. In some cases, people believed to be at high risk of breast cancer have the operation as a preventive measure. A breast prosthesis or breast form is an artificial breast that is used after a woman's breast has been surgically altered or removed. Whether the loss of the breast is permanent or temporary, a breast form can be worn to simulate the natural breast and body shape. At THRIVE we provide this service. If you have any questions please give us a call.
