Pink Regalia Mastectomy Boutique Broadens Support of Breast Cancer Patients with SOMAVAC® Wearable Post-Surgical Pump

The SOMAVAC® SVS is a post treatment option that all breast cancer patients should consider prior to going into surgery.

Ashville, NC – August 31, 2020 – Specialty boutique Pink Regalia broadens its support of mastectomy and lumpectomy patients with the addition of the SOMAVAC® SVS, a closed suction, post-surgery drain pump. Manufactured by SOMAVAC® Medical Solutions, the SOMAVAC® SVS is a low-profile, user-friendly, wearable medical device that applies continuous suction at the end of a surgical drain to remove fluid effectively and reduce the risk of seroma or hematoma. 

With nationally accredited physical locations in Asheville and Waynesville, a mobile clinic and dedicated tele-fittings, Pink Regalia’s certified mastectomy fitters provide HIPPA compliant personal consultations and private fittings, as well as an extensive collection of post-surgical garments, prosthetics and chemo care products to women across North Carolina.

Until recently, healthcare providers have directed treatment decisions while patients assumed passive roles. Motivated by an attempt to regain some of control that cancer has taken away, more and more breast cancer patients are assuming an active role in their treatment decisions and care. Post-surgical pumps are one of those decisions that may now be made by patients. 

SOMAVAC® SVS is designed to replace the legacy technology of using suction bulbs with surgical drains, which has seen little innovation or advancements since the manual devices’ introduction in the 1970s. The old manually operated suction systems, such as Jackson-Pratt (JP) or accordion-style devices, are meant to draw fluid out with the intermittent suction generated by a bulb attached to the end of the drain. The bulbs often fail to maintain continuous suction which increases opportunities for complications, and the bulbs and other manual devices are fraught with issues such as leakage, clogging and spillage. The SOMAVAC® SVS is the only patient-centric, value-based alternative to the suction bulbs used in closed suction drains and can be discretely worn under clothing while helping patients return to normal activities while recovering.

“We want our clients to know that there are options for post-surgical care and that we are on the forefront of making new products and technologies readily available,” said Stephany Semones, Owner and Certified Mastectomy Fitter, Pink Regalia. “Although it can feel as though options are narrowing and decisions are out of their hands, there are actually numerous post-operative options available. The SOMAVAC® SVS is a post treatment option that all breast cancer patients should consider prior to going into surgery.”

Continued Semones, “The SOMAVAC® SVS fits perfectly into our mission of providing a safe, comfortable, and patient-centered experience after having life-altering surgery.” 

“Recovery is the ultimate goal for all breast cancer patients, and Pink Regalia is a welcome resource of information and products where women in North Carolina can learn about their options, including SOMAVAC® SVS”, said Esra Roan, CEO, SOMAVAC Medical Solutions. “Bringing SOMAVAC to patients provides them with a better post-op recovery experience and fulfils our passion for helping patients during recovery.” 

Pink Regalia facilities are ​accredited by the American Board for Certification (ABC), which is the national certifying and accrediting body for the orthotic, prosthetic and pedorthic professions, and individual certifications were granted by the Board of Certification/Accreditation, an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting quality patient care by offering highly valued credentials for professionals and businesses.
