I had breast implants 4 years ago. I lost most of the sensation in my breast, is it possible the sensation is now coming back?

Loss of sensation
In my experience, permanent loss of of sensation may be due to stretching of the sensory nerves by using very large implants causing a stretch injury or pressure on the nerves, extent of dissection which can damage the nerves, and the size of implant. I find that the location of the incision is not usually the reason for loss of sensation.
Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon is important when considering surgery, as it will lower your chances of complications.

Sensation returning after 4 years?
It would be odd to take that long for sensation to return, but as I always tell my patients, your body doesn't read the textbook. As long as everything is OK, give it time and see what happens.
