Chest and back pain after lift and augmentation

Without performing your surgery I can not say for sure. It is probably best to be seen by your doctor to be properly evaluated. I will say that some discomfort is normal.

Chest and back pain @ 4 weeks after breast augmentation

Please contact your surgeon ASAP. These symptoms are not normal. While you may have some minor pain at the 4 week peroid, the pain you describe is unusually and concerning.

Chest and Back Pain After Breast Lift and Implants

No, this is not normal.  At 4 weeks you should be feeling very good.  Schedule a follow up visit with your Plastic Surgeon as soon as possible to discuss your concerns. Best wishes!
