In brief: Find the right size

You will be wearing a bra and different sizes of prosthesis will be fitted until one matches you opposite breast volume.

In brief: Compatibility

This is really a straightforward appointment to see if the sizing was conducted properly and to determine if your bras will work with the prosthesis and if the prosthesis will achieve the proper symmetry and facsimile of the opposite breast (in a single sided mastectomy).

In brief: Question unclear

If referring to breast reconstruction you can expect a few measurements to be done followed by a lengthy consultation and a few photographs.

In brief: Nothing to fear

It should be painless and allow you to look and feel like you did before the surgery.
