Muscle Type Pain After Breast Lift with No Implants

Muscle pain after a breast lift likely from 'overdoing it'
In general, breast lifts do not involve dissection of the muscle that you are mentioning. However, depending upon your anatomy and the amount of a lift you needed certain traditional techniques do involve suturing breast tissue to the muscle fascia or other deeper dissection techniques.
Your best rule of thumb will be if you had the pain after surgery then its likely healing from surgery. If you developed the pain after a day or more of no such pain then you likely exerted yourself a bit too much and now may have inflamed the deeper tissues and possibly your muscle.
Ask your surgeon - he will know best; And try to take it a bit easier.
