Silicone Prosthesis

All other breast prostheses are made of silicone which has outstanding  skin and body compatibility. The softness and movement of a silicone  breast prostheses resembles that of the natural breast and quickly  assumes the body's temperature.

When to wear silicone prosthesis

A silicone prosthesis  is only suitable once the scar has healed and the swelling subsided.  Other conditions are a lessening of pressure sensitivity and the compatibility of a prosthesis with your follow-up treatment. During radiation therapy, a textile initial prosthesis is recommended due to  its lighter weight.  

Why silicone?


Silicone has excellent compatibility with the skin and body as it acts like  human tissue. Its weight, softness, movement and resilience are close to that of the natural breast. The high heat conductivity of silicone ensures that Anita prostheses assume the body temperature straight away. 

The source material for the production of silicone is  silicic acid, a natural raw material. This actually has an oily surface,  which is covered with a polyurethane film in the case of external prostheses. This film – unlike PVC films – consists of natural base  materials and is widely used in medical engineering for this reason. It  is extremely durable, with a skin-like structure, and is resistant to  grease, oil, chlorine and salt water. 

The materials used in  Anita silicone prosthesis are dermatologically and physiologically tested and safe to wear in a bra or swimsuit. Pinpricks,e.g. from brooches and rings must be avoided, however, as the film cannot be repaired if torn. 

TriNature SoftLite Plus 1051XC

The unique technology of  the patented FlexGap® system ensures natural movement and allows the  breast prosthesis to flatten naturally when the wearer is reclining -  just like an intact breast. 



The material has been dermatologically tested and certified to the  latest international "biocompatibility" standard DIN ISO 10993.



What are the advantages of microfibre?


Microfibre does not absorb body moisture, but transports it away from the body  immediately, leaving the skin feeling warm and dry. Microfibre is also a  breathable and extremely skin-friendly material. Silicone prostheses in  combination with a microfibre backing therefore offer optimal comfort  and are particularly recommended in case of sensitive skin or a tendency to perspire.The excellent properties of microfibre are also highly important in the lingerie and swimwear market.
