Being able to feel your implant in different positions is not unusual and the tingling you talk about is typically related to nerve regeneration so probably there is nothing to be concerned about. However, you still need to be checked out in person by your surgeon once he or she is back in town. Best, Dr. Nazarian
I appreciate your question.
Without photos, it is difficult to comment. Nerve irritation or stretch are likely the cause of tingling sensations and should resolve spontaneously. It is not uncommon to be able to feel the implant along the lower pole of your breast as this is the area with the least coverage. Since this is a new change for you, best to have it evaluated. I would call your plastic surgeon's office and ask to see the covering MD while he is out of town.
The best way to assess and give
true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified
plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
Best of luck!
It is not uncommon to feel the implant in certain positions and to have different nerve sensations from time to time. The best answer is to see your plastic surgeon. While frustrating that he is away, he and his staff will be best able to evaluate you in person to make sure everything is doing fine.
Usually palpability of the implant has to do with the thickness of the overlying soft tissues. Best to review with your surgeon.
Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well. I suggest you to get a ragiography to discard anything wrong with your breasts, also and appt with your surgeon is crucial to determine what's happening.
This is not unusual.Many times after surgery you will have strange sensations so be patient until you see your surgeon.No need for alarm.
Thanks for the question. I understand that this is now 18 months after your surgery. Without further history, photos and an examination it would be difficult to answer properly this question sufficient to have the pain and abnormal implant contact to go way. I believe that you have pursued this properly by contacting your Plastic Surgeon's office.
Good luck to you.

From your description it sounds unlikely there is anything acutely concerning going on and it can certainly wait until after your surgeon is available. Without photos and really without an examination, we cannot offer much in the way of diagnosis, just reassurance.
Thank you for your question. I think you have made the right decision in reaching out to your plastic surgeon's office for an in-person examination. Without a series of photographs, it is difficult to make any true recommendations. Tingling sensations are usually the result of a nerve irritation or stretch and should spontaneously resolve. It is not uncommon to be able to feel the implant along the lower border of your breast as this is the area with the least coverage, but because this is a change for you, best to have it evaluated.
Only in person examination would allow a dx to be given. If you can not wait to see your surgeon than seek his covering PS which I am sure he has......
