It is normal to have shooting pains after breast augmentation especially if the implants were placed under the muscle. This pain should improve with time and rest however I recommend that you discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon. Be sure to keep your follow up appointments.
You need to call your plastic surgeon and be seen immediately whenever you are experiencing new pain or prolonged bleeding.
Be well and good luck!

Your problem sounds like a normal complaint at 4 days. Time, ice, and pain medicine can help. Ask your PS for their recommendation for treatment. The needle stick might have been from numbing medicine which I also use during the surgery to help with initial postoperative discomfort. Hang in there.
If you are right handed then the pain on the right is more like due to the increased activity of the pectoralis muscle. Each provider treats this differently.

since your surgeon knows exactly what put the mark on your skin. As for the shooting pains, it would be considered 'normal' and should subside with time. The things I worry most about after augmentation surgery are unexplained asymmetric swelling and infections.
