Breast Sensation

Sometimes after breast augmentation patients may experience hypersensitivity of their nipples. Areas of numbness of the breast and nipple may be present but generally return to normal in 12-18 months. Soreness as opposed to tingling is not a sign of return of  sensation and unfortunately there is is nothing to do but be patient and wait. Best Wishes
