When can I start to wear a breast form?
This is a personal decision. Many women are ready for their fitting four to six weeks after surgery, with some coming in as early as three weeks after and others waiting up to three months. It depends on how quickly your body heals and when you feel you are ready. Make your appointment on your own terms.

What does a breast form cost?
Silicone forms are subsidized by the Ontario Ministry of Health. As your purchase for a breast prosthesis is paid in full at the time of your fitting, we will supply you with the application for your OHIP reimbursement. Coverage for a full prosthesis is $195; coverage for a partial is $105. The balance may be claimed through private insurance or income tax reimbursements.

What am I eligible for?
