Amoena Contact

The Amoena Contact ProstesisEvery woman reacts differently to a diagnosis of breast cancer. There’s simply no universal remedy for coping with the disease. It is something only you can come to terms with in your own personal way. We have been working with women who have had breast surgery for many years, and perhaps we can offer you some advice to help you cope with the problem.

Feels like a part of you.

“Amoena Contact makes me almost forget that I am wearing a breast form at all. I’m able to choose from a larger variety of clothing.”

Benefits

More freedom in movement, fashion choices and overall self-confidence

Attaches to the skin and moves with the body, stays in place with every movement

Important Note:
Skin that has recently undergone surgery and radiation therapy is extremely sensitive. Therefore, we recommend self-adhesive breast forms only after follow-up treatment (or about 6 months after surgery). Amoena Contact can be exchanged up to 3 months after the purchase date. If you experience problems with your Contact breast form, your supplier will immediately exchange it for a non-adhesive Amoena breast form free of charge.
