We're Here to Help

When visiting your doctor for your post operative visit, you can request a prescription for surgical bras and a breast prosthetic.  For first time clients, we require an appointment so that we can spend time with you -- most first time fittings will take 30-45 minutes. Products are usually available to take home on your first visit.  We participate with all the major insurances, including Medicare, Medicaid, Independent Health, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Aetna, United Health Care, and Univera. Most insurances will pay for 2 bras and a breast form every other year.


Q: Is it important to wear a breast prosthetic after having a mastectomy?

A: Yes, because it distributes weight on your chest wall, which helps you maintain proper posture and a more healthy skeletal and muscular structure.

Q: Are there products for women who have had a lumpectomy or reconstruction who are not symmetrical?

A: Yes. Balance products are partial breast forms created for symmetry after partial breast loss due to lumpectomy, reconstruction, or a natural imbalance.

Q: How is a balanced appearance achieved with a breast prosthetic?

A: Approximately 4 weeks after your surgery, consult with your doctor to see if you are ready for your fitting. An AuNaturel certified fitter will verify your bra size and fit you with a surgical bra. All surgical bras have pockets manufactured into the cups of the bra, which will hold the breast prosthetic in place. Once proper bra size and fit has been determined, a breast prosthetic is chosen to fit into the cup of your surgery side. In most cases, you will be able to leave AuNaturel with your prosthetic and at least one bra.

Q: What kind of care does a breast form require?

A: A breast form can be washed by hand with a mild soap, patted dry, and stored in its cradle, nipple side down to maintain its shape.

Q: What is lymphedema?

A: If your breast surgery involved removal of lymph nodes, you may be at risk of developing lymphedema, an accumulation of lymphatic fluid causing swelling in the arm and possibly the hand on the side of the surgery.
Here are some guidelines to keep in mind:

  • Notify your doctor of any swelling, pain, warmth, or redness of the hand or arm.
  • Avoid heavy lifting, constricting clothing, or jewelry on the affected side.
  • Keep the arm moisturized; avoid overexposure to the sun.
  • Recognition of early onset and proper care can keep lymphedema under control.
Q: Are mastectomy products covered by health insurance?

A: Most health insurance plans provide coverage for bras and prosthetics annually when ordered by your physician. AuNaturel Boutique is a participating provider with all major health insurance providers, including Medicare. 

Q: What do I need for my first visit to AuNaturel?

A: In order for us to spend the necessary time with you for your initial consultation, an appointment is required.  Allow 30-45 minutes for the consultation.  You will also need to have a prescription, ordering your breast prothesis and surgical bras in order for us to bill your health insurance for your products.  Please be sure to bring your insurance card to your appointment.
