Itching 3 Weeks Post-Op Breast Augmentation

Intense itching after breast implant augmentation
Itching after breast surgery is very common and related to return of nerve sensation as well as histamine release during the healing process. Antt-histamines may be useful but are generally not warranted. Discuss your symptoms wiht your surgeon to ensure that you do not have another cause such as an allergic reaction.
