Dear Patient,

If you were a small chested woman with very little skin laxity, than the discomfort may be due to very tight breasts. However, this does dissipate as the tissue and skin relax and soften. This may take up to 6 months.

It is unclear why you would have so much pain in your breasts after four months. You should be evaluated by your surgeon.
