I had silicone implants on 4/15/11 to fix tuberous breasts. I have had some sharp feelings in both breasts but now it only happens mostly on the right breast and maybe once a week. But for the past 2-3 months i've been getting this tingly feeling all over my body. First it started in my hands, arms and chest but now its also in legs & feet. It started happening for maybe 10 seconds but now its happening 3-4 times a week and lasting minutes. Could this be releated to the implants? What can it be?
Tingly Feeling All over Body After Silicone Implants, What Could This Be?

Tingling feeling after breast augmentation
In agreement with Dr. Johnson that your dysesthesias/paresthesias (tingling) are likely unrelated to the breast implants, because they are progressive and unremitting, consultation with your primary care physician and/or a neurologist is indicated. Electrolyte abnormalities and other systemic conditions can cause this to occur.
A patient may experience "tingly" feelings in their breasts after breast augmentation during the first few months after surgery. The tingly feeling in the rest of your body is not related to your implants. I would recommend that you see your internist/family practitioner for an examination and lab work. Best wishes.
Tingly feeling after breast implants
The only thing we can say is that the tingly feeling in your body is not related to your breast implants. We would suggest a visit with your family physician for a good examination to help sort things out.
Best of luck,
