Unusual to have pain so long after breast augmentation
it is not common to have pain so long after surgery but i have seen it rarely. as long as it seems to be getting less and less with time, you will probably be ok before much longer. you should definitely return to your surgeon to get checked out, however.
Pain 7 months post op breast augmentation.
The pain that you describe can indicate nerve regeneration if you had numbness or loss of sensation right after surgery. Other possibilities include simple nipple sensitivity after breast augmentation which usually does not last longer than 7 months. I would suggest that she see a plastic surgeon for an examination.
Pain after BA
Patients can experience pain 7 months after breast augmentation, and sometimes even up to a year after surgery, but the pain typically decreases in both frequency and intensity over this period of time. The only exception would be if you were to develop and early and severe capsular contracture, but that does not seem like is it happening in your case.

I recommend that you make an appointment to have this assessed in person. You may have minor local irritation, cyst, infection, swelling due to hormonal changes or any number of things to rule out.

Pain in breast
There are many reasons why pain may develop in the breast at this point in time, but without an exam it is difficult to say. You are best to see your surgeon for an evaluation. Best of luck
Pain seven months post augmentation
These types of symptoms occur not uncommonly following breast augmentation. They usually resolve with time and conservative measures like over the counter non-steroidal medications. If the pain is getting worse, you should see your surgeon for evaluation and an in person examination. Some time, you can develop capsular contraction which can cause pain. Your surgeon would be able to make that diagnosis if present.
