Increased Pain after Breast Augmentation?
Thank you for the question.
It is unlikely that the previous breast surgery and its sequelae will influence the level of discomfort you will experience after the breast augmentation surgery. You should address your current symptoms with your plastic surgeon in the event that treatment (surgical or nonsurgical) may be helpful. For example, if your symptoms are related to abnormal scarring, then scar revision and/or injection of steroids may be beneficial.
Please make sure you are working with a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon.
I hope this helps.

IT sounds as if you may have a keloid scar. Intralesional steroids can provide relief. Consider asking the surgeon for steroid injections for relief prior to the breast augmentation surgery.

Your history of breast lift and reduction should not mean more pain with augmentation necessarily
There is no reason I know of that you should expect an inordinate amount of pain with breast augmentation because you had a breast lift and reduction in the past- especially if the implants are placed under your muscle (which, by the way, is the ONLY location I would consider if I were you- given your prior history).
Find a surgeon certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery that you like and feel you can trust- you should be able to achieve your goals without more pain than the average patient.

I do not feel there will be an increase in pain as you describe. But evaluation in person from boarded plastic surgeons is the best way to proceed.
