New Attitude Custom Breast Prostheses

Welcome to New Attitude. What you see is the result of years of  research and working one on one with women to create something of value for them and learning from them along the way. With my love for art and my passion for technology I knew medical art and in particular designing external breast prostheses for women was a calling. I’m proud to present my company and our services for women to help them  after a breast cancer diagnosis.  Check out why we have a New Attitude.

Partial Mastectomy

The majority of women with a breast cancer diagnosis have a lumpectomy or partial mastectomy. Sometimes the partial mastectomy results in a significant removal of breast tissue and a significant reduction of breast size. A New Attitude custom prosthesis is the solution.


Bilateral Prostheses

New Attitude specializes in the creation of custom made bilateral breast prostheses. We use our artistic skills and our extensive experience to design custom breast prosthetics that expertly re-create breast shapes that appear naturally matched to each woman's body.

Custom Prosthesis

The New Attitude custom prosthesis is "tailor made" to fit each individual and every custom breast prosthesis is made individually for each woman. The New Attitude prosthesis is lightweight and realistic. It looks and feels natural and it comfortably stays in place.

New Attitude has over 20 years of experience working with women and we offer a long lasting, comfortable and safe way of restoring one’s appearance after surgery. We have a commitment to do the best possible breast prosthesis for each woman we work with. There is always a solution when working with New Attitude.

An exceptional woman and Artist, I found Irene on line and quickly became excited at the prospect of working with her. The time with her as she created Prosthetics for me was exciting and healing. I was transformed. Irene has a calm quiet caring way and goes to great lengths to ensure an exceptional outcome. Her desire to fine tune and expand her art will be an exciting adventure to be a part of. Thanks Irene.

The work New Attitude does is exciting, Ms. Healey is possibly the most intelligent, caring and compassionate professional I have met in my years working to communicate vital healthcare issues. Spread the word.

You are a blessing and the work that you do is a gift.  Your attention to detail was only surpassed by your artistic ability.  I’ve never met someone so knowledgeable, creative and kind.  It was an experience I will never forget and will cherish for the rest of my life.  The four days I spent in your studio were filled with awe for what you create but also for how you approach the project.  Your prosthetics are one of a kind and are in fact works of art.  In working with me, you made me feel whole again.  You treated me with respect and from the very first moment I knew we were creating something special, beautiful and personal.  I feel privileged for having had the opportunity to watch the process that is so unique to you.

I had my breast prosthesis done almost 10 years ago when you were doing all by hand sculpturing.  I have to say that after all these years its held up remarkably well and still is so comfortable.  I've never had any issues with it irritating me or otherwise and I work out everyday!  Its given me the confidence to move on with my life without the pain of surgery or complications.

I'm sure things have changed since then, but you've given a lot of people a sense of normality in their lives.  Thanks Irene

I am an aggressive windsurfer and I love to spend time working hard in the gym. Reconstruction after my mastectomy and radiation would have involved many surgeries, recovery time, more scars and possible risk of disfigurement, infection and failure, none of which appealed to me. Four years ago, I had a custom prosthesis made for me and I could not do without it today. It is light, very comfortable, needs no maintenance and stands up to vigorous exercise. I pop it into one of my bras  and camisole tops and the best part is, it is a perfect match to my other side! Nobody knows I am wearing it, even in my  bikinis. My custom prosthesis from New Attitude is the perfect  solution .

Do I have to see you in person?

To benefit from a truly custom made breast prosthesis we need to work directly with each woman for the first prosthesis to create the original design and create a comfortable functional fit by testing protoypes on the body. We archive all our work and future copies can be done without any visits.

What are the materials used?

New Attitude uses the highest quality medical silicones that are safe to be used on the skin.  We have our own proprietary formulas that we developed by working with experts in the field. We continue to research and develop new methods of creating the most life like prosthesis possible.

Can I use the prostheses for all activities?

Yes, you only need the New Attitude custom breast prostheses. The prosthesis is lightweight and comfortable and stays in position with the use of a light bra or tight fitting clothing. You don't need to use a pocketed bra. You can swim or go into hot tops without harming the prosthesis.
