Freqently Asked Questions
Does my Health insurance cover wigs?
Most health Insurance companies cover part or all of the cost of the wig if your doctor writes a prescription. Ask for a prescription for a "cranial prosthesis” (that is, a wig!) to submit to your insurer. Not every company reimburses, but we will try. Our wig specialists stand ready to assit you in the process.
Why are there different shapes of prosthesis?
Every woman’s body is different so there is a large range of prostheses available in various shapes. The three main shapes are triangular, circular and teardrop shapes. A triangle form has a rounded look and is generally designed for younger women with firmer pectoral muscles.
The type of prosthesis you wear will depend on the amount and location of tissue removed during surgery. We will help you find one that is close to your original breast shape and suits your lifestyle. Your fitter will be able to guide you through the range of prostheses that are suitable for you.
