Sensation after BA
Breast augmentation - pins and needles sensations after 5 days.
Such feelings are normal - they are a signal that nerves are recovering after surgery.
Feelings like this can last as long as six weeks.
Be sure to mention them to your surgeon - s/he needs to be aware of all aspects of your recovery.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Post Op Sensations While Healing
Tingling and other sensations which come and go during healing are normal. As your nerves repair and incisions heal you will feel this, but it typically resolves within the first 1-2 months. If you have increasing pain or visible changes, let your Plastic Surgeon know.
All the best
