Back Pain After Augmentation
My experience is that back pain following augmentation is not unusual. We typically attribute this to a change in your posture as you try to "protect" your chest. There may also be some element of referred pain in that stimulation of nerves in the chest may send signals along the nerve to the back where it exits the spinal cord. We do know this for sure but maybe it has some role to play in what you are feeling. Fortunately back pain virtually always resolves quickly but you should check with your surgeon to be certain nothing more serious is occurring.
Yes,some patients have back pain after surgery. Contact your surgeon to make sure you are healing normally and other issues are not causing the back pain. Best of luck.

Back Pain After Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation early post op, some advices:
Its normal to have back pain after breast implants. In my practice, after performing a BA I recommend to my patients to limit the movement of the arms for two weeks. After that, you can move your arms taking care and always with common sense.
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling.
