Areola pain after breast lift and implants
Hi, there could be many reasons for a new onset of pain at one areola, so I would suggest starting with an examination by your plastic surgeon. Although silicone gel breast implants are very durable, in some cases an implant rupture can be associated with a mild burning sensation. Physical examination would also be very helpful in ruling out a mass at the areola. Your surgeon may want to follow-up with a mammogram or ultrasound as well. In general, pain is our body's way of asking us to pay attention to something, so I would recommend that you not ignore your symptoms and go in for a brief visit. Best wishes.

Thanks for your inquiry. The symptoms you relate are hard to diagnose without an exam. I suggest you see your primary care doctor or your plastic surgeon to discuss.
