Pain and Limited Arm Movement 1 Year after Breast Augmentation?
Thank you for the question.
No, it is not “normal” to have continued pain and limited arm movement one year after breast tissue surgery. I would suggest following up with your plastic surgeon who is in the best position to advise you and/or refer you to other consultants as necessary.
Pain after a year doesn't sound normal
I tell my patients that it takes a year to heal completely after breast augmentation surgery. Patients who experience pain after a year may be experiencing capsular contracture or some other unexpected issue. Sounds like you should probably discuss your situation with a local board certified plastic surgeon. They should be able to tell by examining you if you are developing capsular contracture.
