You may have stretched part of your pocket or muscle and caused a little trauma.  Have your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon examine you and determine if there is any damage.  You may need to rest for 7-10 days and take some Advil or aleve and decrease some of the inflammation.

As Dr Khoobehi states the most likely reason is capsular fibrosis. See your reconstructive surgeon ASAP.

Pain Two Years Following Breast Reconstruction With Expanders and Implants

+1

Pain 2 years following a breast reconstruction with expanders and implants may be due to straining of the muscle after overuse.  If it associated with firmness and/or distortion of the breast, it may be due to a capsular contracture.  You should follow up with your plastic surgeon for an evaluation.
