You should see your surgeon for an assessment to determine what may be causing this new onset of pain.
It six months pain should really not be an issue after breast augmentation. The capsule informs around every prosthesis should be well established. As long as pain is not related to an ancillary breast implant issues such as infection treatment is generally symptomatic and one can expect some pain to resolve.
Thank you for asking about your breast augmentation.
- Pain like this can be quite unsettling.
- It seems the implant is irritating a nerve along the side of the chest.
- If it can be localized - without going near the implant - your surgeon might be able to do a nerve block.

- See your surgeon to be checked and if s/he doesn't have an answer, ask if this is something to consider.

Anytime your symptoms have changed, I think it is a good idea to see your surgeon to be properly evaluated.
Thank you for your question. I'm sorry to hear of your post-op discomfort. This sounds like you are experiencing neurogenic (nerve) pain. This most often is a result of the implant stretching a nerve on the outer portion of the breast. This usually decreases over time, but you should discuss this with your board certified plastic surgeon. Also, make sure you follow all of your plastic surgeons post-operative instructions regarding level of physical activity and use of a support bra. Hope this helps and good luck with your recovery.
At 6 months post-op, train could represent a number of different things including nerve injuries or issues with the scar capsule. It would be advisable to follow up with your plastic surgeon, so that he/she can assess the situation and help you with a remedy. Best wishes.
