Thank you for your question and I am sorry to hear of your current breast issues.  At two years you should be fully healed and I would recommend seeing your surgeon to voice your concerns.  Any issues that may be causing your discomfort need to be diagnosed first through an exam in order to offer treatment options.

Delayed nipple sensitivity

A certain percentage of my patients have hypersensitivity of the nipple immediately following their procedure, but this tends to improve with time and can take up to 6 months.  In general, as long as the breasts feel soft, this will likely be something that gets better with time. Sometimes soft nipple shields can be placed to lessen the hypersensitivity. These concerns should be brought up to your plastic surgeon.
