Breast Pain after Breast Augmentation?

Thank you for the question.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to make a diagnosis without direct examination. I am glad you are scheduled for consultation in the near future;  the symptoms you are describing are obviously not commonly exerienced after breast augmentation surgery. If your plastic surgeon continues to feel that the discomfort is not related to breast implants a visit with your OB/GYN may be indicated.

Best wishes.

The pain you describe is hard to distingiush without an exam. There are so many things that can cause pain.  You should see a surgeon to evaluate you.
