Breast Prosthetic Services
Bennett Breast Care Center Offers Prosthetic Services
The Bennett Breast Care Center's Prosthetic Service is about restoration: the restoration of a woman's symmetry and balance, and the restoration of self-confidence and self-esteem. This service assists women who have undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy, as well as women with congenital breast defects, or other breast issues. The service also has bras for post-operative cardiac patients, maternity and nursing bras, and high-quality plus-size bras.
Patients meet with a certified prosthetic fitter; the fitter also travels to other community hospitals, including Farmington, Rumford, Norway and Bridgton. She is also available to visit women in their homes or in a long-term care facility.
A breast prosthesis is designed to look and feel similar in weight, texture and color to a natural breast. In addition to creating symmetry in appearance, the form will replace weight to restore the body's natural balance.
A referral from your primary care physician is required. Also, check with your insurance provider to see if this service is covered.
The American Cancer Society and the Bennett Breast Care Center have joined together to establish a Breast Bank that allows women with no insurance to obtain a fitted prosthesis at no cost. In addition, CMMC has an Emergency Needs Fund, which may offer full or partial assistance to qualifying patients.

The Breast Center is at 12 High Street, Suite 103.
