There are soft, weightless forms that you can wear right after surgery while your scar heals.
Silicone breast forms typically aren't worn until the area has healed (usually 6 to 8 weeks after surgery).
You may need to wait even longer to wear a silicone form if you have radiation treatment after your surgery. Radiation can make wearing a silicone breast form uncomfortable, because your skin may be extra sensitive.
Where can you get a breast form?
You can find breast forms at most surgical supply stores and lingerie stores-and even the lingerie departments of some department stores. Breast forms can also be purchased over the Internet.
Most experts recommend getting the help of a trained fitter. When you go for a fitting, wear a close-fitting top so that you can really see how the breast form looks and moves.
