The ABC Custom Breast Prosthesis

If you have experienced a surgery such as a full mastectomy, partial mastectomy, lumpectomy, breast conserving surgery, or reconstruction, a custom-made breast prosthesis may be right for you!

Pink Ribbon Boutique

Pink Ribbon is owned and operated by Bev Ramsey, a two time breast cancer survivor. Bev had a lumpectomy in 2003 and chose no treatment. In 2006 she had a reoccurrence and chose a bilateral mastectomy as opposed to a unilateral. She didn’t want the chance it would return in the other breast. She had 8 chemo treatments and 25 radiation treatment. On the twentieth radiation treatment she noticed swelling and found out she had lymphedema in her right arm and hand. That was not good considering her profession, at the time, was accounting and management. She has learned to manage the lymphedema but she will tell you it definitely is a challenge!!!

Pink Ribbon provides a full line of post-mastectomy products that allows us to solely cater to women after a breast cancer diagnosis and surgery, including Radical mastectomy to Reconstruction. Our staff of licensed, professional American Board for Certification or BOC Certified Fitters, have years of expertise in fittings of post-surgical camisoles, breast forms, mastectomy bras, compression garments, and other mastectomy apparel.

Our selection cannot be beat. We carry every major brand of breast forms available, which will allow us to accurately fit you to perfection. We also have hundreds of bras styles to work with you that will meet or exceed your personal requests.

FAQs

The ABC Custom Breast Prosthesis utilizes 3D scanning technology to replicate your remaining breast lifted in a bra (or breast form, if you have a bilateral surgery). These 3D scans provide the designers with your unique shape to build a one-of-a-kind prosthesis to specifically match you.

A custom breast prosthesis is the most personalized, realistic option available for you because it’s designed and created specifically for your body shape, size, and color. The shape is a replica of your remaining breast lifted in a bra (or breast form, if you have bilateral mastectomy) and is worn directly against your chest wall. And, you have over 15 different colors to choose from for your skin and nipple color for a more personalized appearance.
