In brief: Psychological
If a woman is not ready or not interested in breast reconstruction an external prosthesis is often a simple solution to wardrobe problems and social situations.
Modern breast reconstruction should always be thoroughly discussed as an option.

In brief: Brest prosthesis
Assuming this is post mastectomy: a well fitted prosthesis will make your clothes fit better and the chest wall appear symmetrical to others.
Ti's for comfort and psychological benefit.

In brief: Maintain balance
Most people aren't aware of the weight in a breast until its gone.
A proper fitting prosthesis replaces this in addition to providing a proper clothing fit. Subtle shifts in weight/balance can lead to neck and shoulder problems from the body's attempt at compensation. The larger the breast the more significant an issue this can be.

A prosthesis allows you to look relatively normal in clothes and lets you avoid any additional surgery.
