Avoid using powders, lotions or perfumes near your prosthesis When you are not wearing your silicone prosthesis you should keep it in its original box, in the plastic cradle provided

Keep away from pointed or sharp objects, particularly broaches

If you use a cover with your prosthesis, this can be washed along with your bras or in a cool wash cycle

DO NOT tumble dry your prosthesis


Foam and Bead Prostheses

Always make sure your foam and bead prostheses are thoroughly dried after washing or swimming

Chlorine can damage foam prostheses after a while, so if you swim regularly you may need to replace it from time to time (approximately 6 months). Alternatively, you could invest in the Anita Aqua-Lite silicone prosthesis which is guaranteed for 2 years.
