I'm planning to lose weight, is this a problem?
You may realise that sometimes weight changes can alter the size of your breasts. If you gain or lose a significant amount of weight your prosthesis may not match your natural breast.
Small weight changes should not affect your breast size but we would advise waiting if you are planning significant weight changes.
Does the prosthesis stick to your skin?
No, the prosthesis is held in place by the bra. It is important that you have the correct bra to ensure this.
