Q: What is a Radiant Impressions custom breast prosthesis made of?
A: 100% medical grade silicone.
Q: How long after my surgery should I wait to be scanned for a Radiant Impressions?
A: Your surgical site changes significantly during the first year so it is recommended that you wait until your chest wall is completely healed and all swelling has subsided.
Q: How long do I have to wait for my custom breast prosthesis to be made?
A: Approximately 4-6 weeks.
Q: How long will my custom breast prosthesis last?
A: Only the highest quality materials are used in making a Radiant Impressions Custom Prosthesis. With proper care, you can expect your prosthesis to last several years. However, with a change in the natural breast or change in the chest wall, weight gain or loss, the fit of the custom prosthesis may change. If these changes occur, you may be eligible for a new custom prosthesis. It is recommended that the fit of any prosthesis be checked once a year to ensure a proper fit is maintained.
Q: What is the cost of a custom breast prosthesis?
A: Radiant Impressions is covered by most private insurance companies with a letter of medical necessity from your physician.
