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
