If you have developed new onset burning sensation in the breast,  then I would suggest seeing your doctor to make sure everyting is okay and that you do not have a major problem.

Please have a complete breast examination to evaluate your implants and your breast. You may have just tension on the nerve, but since you had your implants more than 10 years,you need to have full examination including mammogram.

There are numerous possible explanations for this some of which will require surgery, and others which will not. Seek evaluation by your original surgeon or another plastic surgeon.
