The Fitting Experience
As the breast cancer patient leaves the hospital to complete the 4 to 6 weeks
of recovery, it is understandable that she does so with physical discomfort and
a great sense of loss. Still Me offers a warm, caring environment
with a certified and experienced mastectomy fitter who understands the
importance of restoring body image and self confidence.
When scheduling your first appointment it is important that you plan an
adequate amount of time so you can enjoy a relaxed fitting. If possible call
ahead and we can get your insurance information to see what you are eligible
for. If you can't call ahead we will check your insurance eligibility when you
arrive. We also need to discuss the type of surgery you have had, as well as
your lifestyle and favorite activities so we can determine what breast form is
best for you. You will be measured by our certified fitter who will then
assist you in trying on breast forms and bras in your size to help you find the
perfect fit and style. You cannot wear silicone breast prosthesis until
your surgical site has completely healed, but in the interim there are foam and
lightweight gel forms which can be worn with no complications whatsoever.
It is a good idea to bring along a well-fitting garment so you can see how
you will look in your favorite clothes. It is not necessary to schedule
an additional doctor’s appointment in order to obtain a prescription, because
we can request one from your physician and receive it via fax. If you already
have one, however, bring it along. After the fitting is completed you will
receive the mastectomy products of your choice on the same day.
Occasionally there may a back-ordered or specialty item that we need to
order. We have a very large inventory on hand, however if you need to pick up
your products at a later date your order time will be one to two week. We
will then do both the primary and the secondary billings for you.
Still Me is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5
p.m and Saturday 10 a,m to 1 p.m. But if these hours are not convenient for you, we offer fittings and
sales visits at the boutique by appointment. Simply call us today to
schedule your appointment.
