Breast forms after mastectomy--patient's issues.
Munstedt K, Milch W, Reimer C.
Frauenklinik, Justus-Liebig-Universitat, Giessen, Germany.
After mastectomy restoration of body symmetry, a very important aspect
of coping with daily life, may be achieved either using breast forms that
are suspended in a brassiere or by a new system in which breast forms
are attached by adhesive strips to the thorax walls. The system promises
free and easy movement, favourable effects on lymphoedema, and improvements
with respect to dressing. Brassieres are not necessarily needed. The influence
of improved prosthetics on patients' self concept and well-being was investigated.
A group of 67 patients after unilateral mastectomy tested custom breast
forms and self-adhesive breast forms. Using the Frankfurter Selbstkonzeptionsskalen
(Frankfurt Self-Concept Scales), plus additional questions concerning
problems after mastectomy, self-concept was assessed before study and
after 3 months. Analysis of variance with repeated measures revealed significant
differences with respect to the scale Social Contact and Relations (FSKU).
Most patients were better satisfied with epicutaneous self-adhesive breast
forms. The weight and type of movement of the self-adhesive breast forms
were considered natural, and adhesive strips were well tolerated. A total
of 78% were able to wear more fashionable clothing. Breast reconstruction
became less important for 62%. The new concept of self-adhesive breast
forms is an improvement with respect to social and pyschological rehabilitation.
