100% medical grade silicone.
Q
How long after my surgery should I wait to be cast for a Radiant Impressions?

Q
Can I swim with my prosthesis??
A
Yes, the durable construction allows the prosthesis to be worn while swimming, running and during other physical activities.
Q
Is it necessary to adhere my Radiant Impressions Custom Breast Prosthesis?
A
No, in fact most women find that the back of the prosthesis provides an intimate, comfortable fit against their chest wall. The prosthesis naturally stays in place with a properly fit bra.
Q
How long will my custom breast prosthesis last?
A
Only the highest quality materials are used in making a Radiant Impressions Custom Prosthesis. With proper care, you can expect your prosthesis to last several years. However, with a change in the natural breast or change in the chest wall, weight gain or loss, the fit of the custom prosthesis may change. If these changes occur, you may be eligible for a new custom prosthesis. It is recommended that the fit of any prosthesis be checked once a year to ensure a proper fit is maintained.
Q
What is the cost of a custom breast prosthesis?
A
Radiant Impressions is covered by most private insurance companies with a letter of medical necessity from your physician. Call the retailer in your area to learn about your specific insurance plan.
