Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer Essentials

Every breast cancer patient can benefit from our services. We are a resource to assist with overcoming the effects of a lumpectomy, mastectomy, or reconstructive surgery.

Once you’ve had a breast cancer diagnosis, Medicare, TennCare, and private insurance plans like Blue Cross Blue Shield, CIGNA, United Health Care, Aetna and others provide ongoing lifetime coverage of breast forms, bras and camisoles, and other accessories useful in maintaining your appearance, even if you’ve had reconstructive surgery.

Not sure what your insurance plan covers?  Just ask our insurance coverage expert.

Preparing For Surgery & Post-Surgical Care

It’s important to make an appointment with one of our Certified Mastectomy Fitters prior to surgery.  We can often answer a number of questions running through your head.  We can also provide the best post-surgical camisole in advance.

It’s easy to get started.  Just book a private fitting with one of our Certified Mastectomy Fitters at any of our four convenient Nashville-area locations by calling (615) 777-7465 or you can just email us here.

Breast Prosthesis

For those recovering from a lumpectomy, we offer partial breast forms to restore symmetry. These forms are frequently useful for post-reconstruction as well.

For those recovering from mastectomy surgery, there are various types of breast forms available, each specifically designed for different lifestyles.

A private appointment with one of our Certified Mastectomy Fitters provides you with custom-fit options that match your body shape, the type of surgery you’ve had, and the needs of your lifestyle.
