Thank you for your inquiry on healing after Breast Augmentation.

Burning incision pain after a breast augmentation.

Any incision can have a burning type of pain in the immediate postoperative period. Typically these fade quickly, but if they persist should be brought to your surgeon's attention.

Hypersensitivity of the nipple following a breast augmentation

This burning pain may be due to a bruised sensory nerve.  
A deep burn or ache is indicative of a dyesthesia.  This usually gets better over time.  Best to speak with your plastic surgeon about this problem.
