Thank you for your picture.  It is a bit unusual to have pain 10 months after your augmentation.  If this pain is persistent then an exam is warranted to determine the nature of your issue.  Start with your plastic surgeon.

Sharp pain behind breasts after augmentation

Thank you for your question about the pain behind your breast implants.

It is likely that nerves have started to recover after the surgery. You should contact your plastic surgeon to be checked as the sudden onset of pain this long after surgery is unusual. Best wishes.
