Breast pain after a breast augmentation
Hi and thanks for the question. Discerning the cause of breast pain is difficult to do without examining you primarily. Given your presenting story, a capsular contracture may be the culprit - however this no guarantee that a capsulectomy will relieve the pain. An alternative treatment consideration would be a trial of Accolate. With a lack of success or change in clinical symptoms after 3 months, I think a capsulectomy is a reasonable consideration, assuming the remainder of your exam does not suggest you need further studies, such an an ultrasound, mammogram, or MRI. I would confer with your surgeon to find the best treatment plan for your particular case.
