20090299472LIGHTWEIGHT BREAST PROSTHESIS - A lightweight breast prosthesis is formed as an enclosed body having therein at least two compartments chamber, wherein one of the compartments chamber is filled with silicone gel, and the other compartment chamber or compartments chamber are filled with a substance lighter than silicone gel. Thus, the breast prosthesis, which is soft and tender like silicone gel but lighter than a breast prosthesis made entirely of silicone gel, can serve either as a complete prosthetic breast or as a breast shape-supplementing pad for locally supplementing the breast shape or making up a partially removed breast.12-03-2009
20100023122Marker Template for Breast Reduction Surgery - A surgical incision marking template for marking a breast with an intended incision pattern prior to surgery comprises a pliable structural portion with a guide portion. The guide portion is substantially shaped and/or shapeable into a “keyhole” pattern. The keyhole pattern corresponds to the incision pattern generally utilized for the vertical short scar and the inferior pedicle techniques for breast reduction or mastopexy surgery and comprises a generally circular pattern and a generally linear pattern, with the generally linear pattern extending downward from the generally circular pattern when the template is placed on a standing patient. The pliable nature of the structural portion not only allows the shape of the guide portion to be altered but also allows the structural portion to conform to the curvature and shape of the breast. Methods of use for the template to mark the breast are also disclosed.01-28-2010
20130123917Breast prosthesis form - A prosthetic breast form and a method of making thereof provides for a flexible resilient stretchable soft pouch adapted to be filled with a desired quantity of granular material to simulate shape and volume of a natural woman's breast.

The invention concerns an assembly which comprises at least one device.12-02-2010
20110035003Fail-Safe Silicone Breast Implant Delivery Device - A tapered sleeve is provided for implant delivery. An implant (e.g., a pre-filled silicone breast implant) is introduced into a large proximal end of the sleeve and extruded into a surgical pocket of minimal access incision size through a small-sized distal end of the device. Sized appropriately to the implant, the sleeve remains intact during implant run-through of the sleeve.02-10-2011
20100241226ITEM COMPOSED OF A SILICON GEL CONTAINING AN ODOR MASKING ACTIVE INGREDIENT - The present invention relates to an item, such as an external breast prosthesis, an anti-decubitus cushion or mattress, comprising a closed envelope A made of a soft material and containing as filler a silicone gel that comprises an odor masking active ingredient C.09-23-2010
20110125262External Breast Prosthesis and Method of Fabricating Same - An external breast prosthesis having a thin-walled outer shell and an air-filled interior cavity. The prosthesis is fabricated using a method and die set to form the two-part shell without internal supporting structure. The method provides a repeatable process which yields a prosthesis having durable air-tight seal between the anterior and posterior shell and a Class-A exterior surface which accurately replicates the visual and tactile characteristics of a human breast.05-26-2011
20110153016MASTECTOMY PROSTHESIS AND BRA - The present document describes a prosthesis for a mastectomy bra comprising: a lower portion comprising a manually malleable material having a first density; and an upper portion comprising a manually malleable material having a second density smaller than the first density, the lower portion being substantially located below the upper portion thereby insuring stability of the prosthesis when in use. There is also described a bra for receiving the prosthesis.06-23-2011
20090069891Breast implant selector systems - A breast implant selector system including a breast width selector for selecting breast width input information, a breast tissue type selector for selecting breast tissue type input information in response to breast width input information selected with the breast width selector, and an implant size selector for selecting implant size input information in response to the breast tissue type input information selected with the breast tissue type selector. A result indicator provides a result characterizing at least one suggested breast implant as a function of the input breast width, breast tissue type, and implant size input information.03-12-2009
20120010705Light-Weight External Breast Prosthesis - An external lightweight breast prosthesis comprising an elastomeric polyurethane skin filled with copolymer gel filler comprising a mixture of mineral oil, thermoplastic copolymer and glass microspheres and initially configured to approximate the shape of a natural breast wherein the breast prosthesis can be reconfigured to be customized to the individual wearer by subjecting the prosthesis to heating, reshaping, and followed by cooling until the prosthesis retains its new shape.01-12-2012
20100298934BREAST PROSTHESIS - The present invention relates to a removable, external breast prosthesis, comprising a body substantially corresponding to the shape and firmness of the female breast and made from one or more flexible plastic parts, wherein the side of the prosthesis facing the skin has antimicrobial properties due to an antimicrobial coating and/or to antimicrobial material in the matrix.11-25-2010
