Consultation and Assessment

This consultation can occur by telephone or at our location. I hear your story and take a detailed history and answer any questions. Documents to be submitted to an insurance company are discussed. I provide guidance and help with the insurance process.

Pre Surgical Cast or Scan

New Attitude often sees women before surgery to make a copy of their breast. New Attitude can take a  pre surgical scan before surgery so women have a record of their anatomy. The digital model can be used later to create the custom breast prosthesis.

Post Surgical Cast or Scan

A copy of the our client's chest is taken after our client has healed from the mastectomy surgery. This copy will be used to form the back surface of the New Attitude custom prosthesis. This is why the prosthesis will have a secure comfortable fit.

Designing a Model of The Custom Prosthesis

We use a variety of technologies to design a test model (or prototype model) of our prosthesis. We test our prototype on the client and have her try on clothing and move her body with the prototype in her bra.

Testing Fit of the Prosthesis on Client and Making Adjustments

At the design stage we also do assessments and studies of how the chest changes during movement by using clear flexible templates. Modifications are made to the back of the breast prothesis to create a "functional fit."

Completion of the Prosthesis Model on the Client

A physical model or prototype of the  breast prosthesis is created from the initial digital model we create and we use this model to test on the body. We make changes to the shape of the model with our client present.

Refinement of the Prosthesis Model On Client

We take the time to make sure every aspect of the custom breast prosthesis is done well. The design model is tested  under clothing and adjustments are made to be sure it is the best shape before we can make.

Colour Matching and Fabrication of Prosthesis

Once the design prototype model is complete, a mold is made of the model and the prosthesis is fabricated from the mold using silicones that are colour matched to the individual woman's skin.
