I'm 3 months post op. I've developed some pain in my right breast around the nipple. There is a bump there as well.

I didn't upload a pic due to you can see it. I'm not having any changes in softness but it is making my whole boob hurt. It's making it feel sensitive like it was after surgery, like driving down bumpy roads are uncomfortable etc. Guess my question is could this be from my BA or something totally different. My surgeon is over an hour away and I don't want to make that drive if not nessessary.

Any "breast lump" should get proper attention and be investigated by a physician. I would start with your family doctor. If you had a peri-areolar incision, the "lump" may be to a cyst from the sutures, etc. I strongly recommend that you have it looked at.

3 months post op, some advices:

Thanks for the question. Its too early to talk about results.In my practice, after performing a BA I recommend to my patients to limit the movement of the arms for two weeks. After that, you can move your arms taking care and always with common sense. 
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling. Kind regards

This could be from several sources and a breast US would be needed to determine what is causing the pain.

Thank you for your question.Anytime you feel significant pain, please do not hesitate to call your plastic surgeon.  It is so important that they have a chance to discuss with you and can recommend the best course of action. Best of luck in your recovery.

Thank you for your question.You will definitely want to schedule an appointment to see your surgeon so he/she can perform a physical examination and possibly an ultrasound of the breast to see what this bump is and why it is causing you discomfort. 
Best of luck in your recovery.

Thank you for sharing your question and i am sorry to hear of your new breast pain and bump.  Because this is an acute change in your breast augmentation recovery I would recommend seeing your surgeon for an in-person evaluation to diagnose the cause of the pain and offer treatment recommendations.  Only they know the full details of your procedure to be able to give you the best advice.  Best wishes.
