It is unclear why you can not sleep on your stomach 14 months after a breast augmentation.  More information and an exam in person would be helpful.

Without photos and more info, this is not possible to answer. Most women who slept on their stomachs before getting implants can do so again by 6 to 12 months. 

That may not be the case if, for example, you have a capsular contracture.Best answer to your question can come from an evaluation by your surgeon. Otherwise, please consider posting photos and some more details describing the problem.

All the best.
