3 weeks post BA. When does the sensation come back in the skin around the breast?
It is one risk of such a procedure, and one that you must consider, amongst others, as with any surgical procedure. Hope that this helps. Best wishes!

Thanks for your question.. The sensation changes that you describe are very normal at this stage of your recovery, especially with an inframammary crease incision. Some of the superficial sensory nerves can be stretched and/or cut during the placement of the implants. The sensation will improve, but many times it can take several months to a year for this to occur. Unfortunately, there is nothing to do to speed up the process. Hope this helps and good luck!
Congratulations niecyhouston on your augmentation! Everyone recovers differently and it really depends on what kind of augmentation you had and what your sensitivity was like even before the operation. If things continue to get worse or you have concerns, it is important to maintain follow up with your doctor and have your concerns addressed in person as well. Best of luck, MMT
Sensation of the breast
3 weeks post op, some advices:
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.
