I am 3 months post op 425 silicone memory gel implants from a 34b. Why does it hurt when I try to wear any kind of padded bra? Without any bra, it hurts when I try to lift my breast from the bottom.

Breast tenderness normal after augmentation
Your padded bra may be putting too much pressure on the breast sensory nerves. Tenderness such as you have experienced is not abnormal after augmentation. You may wish to try resizing/refitting your bras which may eliminate the problem. Or your discomfort may wax and wane and ultimately will likely disappear over the course of the next 6-9 months.

You appear to have an excellent result. Normal nerve regeneration after BA often has tender and sensitive spots. Avoid underwires and padded bras until that goes away, but some support is needed.
Brest pain 3 months after breast augmentation
It is possible that the implant or pressure from the bra is irritating the sensory nerves that supply the breast. Generally this type of pain will feel like a deep burn or ache. If it does not get better over then next 3 months you should be examined again.

Inflammation made still be present even three months after breast augmentation.
Is still may have some information even three months after breast augmentation which would explain the pain. This should get better with time and with anti-inflammatories. Sub muscular placement is more prone to prolonged convalescence.
