SILICONE PRODUCT RANGE

Care following conservative treatment.

SILIMA partials breast forms restore the natural symmetric contour of the bust following conservative breast surgery or extensive oncoplastic surgery with resulting aesthetic deficits. If the result of conservative or oncoplastic surgery is aesthetically unsatisfactory, SILIMA partial breast forms can reproduce a natural, symmetric bust contour. Equally, if surgery entails several operations, they can serve as an interim solution. SILIMA partial forms come in various sizes, shapes and thicknesses, allowing our patients a perfect fit that is superbly comfortable and guarantees maximum freedom of movement.

SILIMA SHELL (Shell form)

Non-adhesive shell form for compensating unevenness:
  • Worn directly on the skin with no irritation
  • Flat, natural transition with no bumps on the end or curvatures
  • Anatomical, symmetric shape mirrors the curvature of the chest wall
  • Restores the natural shape and confidence. 

SILIMA CONFORM (Ultra-soft semi-partial form)

A particularly aesthetic soft and smooth fitting form:
  • Velvety matt outer skin
  • Thin, softly tapering edge for smooth transition
  • Predominantly soft inner layer made of transparent silicone
  • Perfect for sensitive scar tissue and suitable for initial care
  • The standard cup has a deep hollow on the underside, this is ideal for less tissue damage 
  • The full cup has a shallower hollow, this is ideal to compensate for a greater loss 
  • Best worn directly on the skin
SILIMA breast forms without lateral extension (symmetric)

A less severe mastectomy removes the mammary tissue and some lymph nodes around the bust, while leaving the pectoral muscle and other lymph nodes. This procedure results in no, or only minimal, loss of underarm tissue. In this case, a SILIMA breast form without a prominent lateral extension is the best solution. 

For underarm tissue that was removed together with lymph nodes-radical mastectomy

SILIMA breast forms with lateral extension (asymmetric)

A modified radical mastectomy removes not just the mammary gland and fatty tissue, but also the lymph nodes under the arm, resulting in a visible loss of underarm tissue. A SILIMA breast form with a lateral flare that extends under the arm is especially good for this. 

SILIMA SOFT AND LIGHT, HEART SHAPE

SILIMA Embrace – Extra-soft lightweight form

Patent- protected three- layer design for enhanced comfort:

  • Lightweight silicone core with naturally soft cup and silky- soft inner layer 
  • Up to 30% lighter than the normal gel forms 
  • Adapts to fit the thoracic wall with ease, ideally suited for sensitive scar tissue 
  • Even looks lightweight, thanks to the transparent inner layer 
  • Adapts naturally to all body movements, whether standing, sitting or lying down 
  • Symmetric shape, adapts to become asymmetric 
  • Gently tapers to the neckline and underarm area
