Breast prosthesis come in different sizes, shape, weight and colour. They are used after breast surgery to replace tissue loss and provide shape post op.

Linnoco’s Story

Who's behind Linnoco? While working as an oncology nurse, Sasha cared for many women who had undergone surgery and follow up treatments for breast cancer, all with individual stories, all with one big problem.
