Pain around the breast implant

Pain in your breast may be due to 1) stretching of the chest muscle due to trauma/activities, 2) formation of scar tissue around the implant, or 3) nerve pain. If the pain persist, you should visit your plastic surgeon so that he/she can evaluate the implant and the breast.
