Circumareolar incision; silicon implants; 5 wks post-op; sharp pain (like glass inside!) in breast upon touching 2 or 3 localized areas in close proximity; following massage during which I was on table, face down. Possible causes...?? Pain is extremely sharp, not always easily locatable; seems to move; dull, residual ache after touch -- like stepping on glass and pulling it out. Is this my own breast tissue? Internal stitches, maybe? Possible I've punctured the implant?? Many thanks.

Sharp pain 5 weeks after breast augmentation
Most likely the sharp pains you are experiencing are due to recovering nerves (dysesthesias) and descent of the implant in the breast pocket.
