Sometimes the pain is caused by tugging of a stitch that will eventually dissolve, sometimes it can be caused by scar tissue. Generally these aches and pains and zings will come and go for a few months after surgery, but usually they resolve.
You may feel more comfortable if you speak to your plastic surgeon directly. He or she should be the one to recommend medication to you.
