NuCara New Image Boutique realizes the importance of a personal caring touch and specializes in meeting your own individual needs. We offer complementary fittings and also have in-home fittings available for home-bound clients. Breast forms come in many styles, shapes and prices to accommodate the needs of each individual. We will show you the variety of available prosthesis and fit you comfortably with the products of your choice from Active, Amoena, Jodee, Nearly Me, Trulife and American Breast Care.
Success in restoring postural balance following breast surgery depends on several key factors. Most important is the proper selection and fitting of a weighted breast form. The silicone breast form is a prosthesis worn inside a bra to simulate the shape and weight of your natural breast. Silicone warms to body temperature and closely resembles the feel of body tissue. To function effectively, a breast prosthesis must be worn with a bra with built in pockets made for this special need. Bras with built in pockets are designed with the mastectomy customer in mind. They are comfortable to wear, lightweight, attractive and are made to be worn with any style breast form.
Every woman is unique in her recovery process. Your doctor will tell you when it is time to make an appointment for your fitting.
It's our goal at NuCara New Image Boutique to spend as much time as necessary to provide you with a personal and professional service making your fitting a comfortable, positive experience.
Medicare and most private insurance companies will help with the cost of your prosthesis and pocketed bras, regardless of when you had your surgery. Medicare provides partial coverage for the bras and the prosthesis.
NuCara New Image Boutique provides claim filing to Medicare and private companies. We have contracts with John Deere Health Care, Care Provider Network and Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield.

"I'm so delighted with my mastectomy bra. I've never had one. Now I want to get some "dressy lingerie" and, maybe, a self-adhesive prosthesis, too. A New Image is so personal. Barb makes you feel good about yourself."
Lorna J., Cedar Falls, IA
"Thank you, Thank You, Thank you! This is to tell you how much I enjoy wearing the new forms. I sometimes forget I'm wearing a form. The new forms have really changed my appearance and feeling of self-esteem. Again - Thanks a million times over."
- E.D., Aplington, IA
