After a Lumpectomy
“If a patient chooses a lumpectomy, radiation is almost always a part of her treatment protocol. Red, irritated skin is an unfortunate side effect and she needs a soft garment that will support her breasts and provide some comfort to her irradiated skin. I have found that Amoena post-surgical bras work well during this phase of recovery. My patients live in these garments several weeks after surgery, so I want to make sure they are as comfortable and accommodating to her as possible.”

Shockney, RN., BS., MAS, University Distinguished Service Associate Professor of Breast Cancer Depts of Surgery and Oncology Administrative Director, the Johns Hopkins Breast Center, Associate Professor, JHU School of Medicine, Depts of Surgery, Oncology & Gynecology and Obstetrics, The Johns Hopkins Hospital Breast Center Baltimore, Maryland, USA
After a Mastectomy
Attaches to garment securely with the Velcro tab. Standard shape and size for use with Jackson-Pratt®, Hemovac® and other drain management systems
“My goal after performing a mastectomy is to make sure my patient is taken care of physically, emotionally and spiritually. She needs a soft, comfortable garment to wear during those first few weeks after surgery—and one that can manage drains in the most effective and discreet way possible. But it’s also important for the garment to hold a post-surgical breast form to give her shape, which can help her feel good about herself.” Dr. Beth Baughman DuPree, M.D., F.A.C.S., Medical Director of The Breast Health Program at Holy Redeemer Health System, Meadowbrook, Pennsylvania, USA
