Date:10/16/2008

Surprisingly, a high percentage of women aren't aware of the advanced

products that can help restore a positive body image

ATLANTA, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Women have more options than ever before when facing breast cancer. With early diagnosis, great strides have been made in treatment approaches as well as higher survival rates. However, it's surprising that more women aren't aware of the various ways to restore their positive body image after breast cancer surgery, including the advancements in breast prosthetics.

"We recognize that women will find that their choices and needs may change over several weeks, months and even years following their breast surgery, whether they opt for immediate reconstruction, lumpectomy or mastectomy," said Beth Hohl, product manager for Amoena ( http://www.us.amoena.com ), the worldwide leader of post breast cancer surgery products. "Their decisions should not be predetermined." For example, according to Hohl, it is acceptable and often recommended to wait a year or more before proceeding with reconstruction. Based on their choices and stages of healing, women's paths may include:

-- Post operative products designed to work with healing

-- Partial forms after surgery (i.e. lumpectomy, reconstruction)

-- Transitional breast forms, followed by reconstruction at a later

time

-- A choice of high quality breast forms that fit each woman and her

individual lifestyle

-- Immediate reconstruction

"We want to empower women with as much information as possible as they move
