Pain 5 Weeks After Breast Augmentation

I got my boobs done 5 weeks ago and haven't had any pain since a couple of days after the op. But now I have pain in my right breast. It's not all the time only when I move my arm. The breast doesn't feel any like its getting any harder but I'm not sure whats going on and whether I should be worried at all

Pains from nerves reconnecting.


This is normal, your nerves are probably just reconnecting.  Make sure you make an appointment with your PS to keep him/her informed on your progress.

Pain After Breast Implant Surgery


Having intermittent pains after breast implant surgery is normal. As long as the breasts feel soft, are not getting firmer, then I would consider this part of the healing process. If the pain persists, however, I recommend contacting your plastic surgeon.

Hope that helps!

Pain in breast 5 weeks later


It is not uncommon to have some discomfort int he breasts several weeks after surgery. Thisis often a result of increased activity.  If you are concerned, speak with your surgeon.
