Localized Pain after Implant Replacement
Yes, localized pain is normal a month post-op, and even up to 7 weeks after a revision. Regeneration of the sensory nerves is accompanied by tingling, burning, or shooting pains which disappear with time and are nothing to be alarmed about. If, however, swelling, redness, infection, or drainage accompanies this, then you will need to see the doctor at the office.
Pain after breast reduction and implant exchange
Thank you for your question. I would definitely recommend
(especially considering the quality and progression of the pain you are
describing) for you to follow up with your surgeon. Am assuming that your surgeon is a board certified plastic surgeon or board eligible plastic surgeon. Aside from that, usually significant
asymmetries in pain or pain that progressively gets worse following surgery –
instead of improving, is a cause for further evaluation. Of course, pending an in person
examination and in-depth evaluation, the symptoms may be explainable, but
seeking your surgeon’s help will be the only thing to help address that. Good luck!
Pain and abnormal sensations and sounds quite common after breast augmentation revision.

Having localized pain in left breast 4 wks post after implant replacement and reduction in sIze. What kind of pain is normal?
I am sorry to hear about the problem you are experiencing. Consistent pain one month after breast surgery would not be considered “normal”; it is possible that you are experiencing a complication. For example, sometimes if a patient is experiencing a breast implant displacement problem, localized pain in the area where the breast implant displaces to may occur. Best to see your plastic surgeon, who will be able to evaluate your situation much more precisely. Best wishes.
Pain after breast implant revision
Some degree of pain is normal but it is impossible to know if this is the case with you. You should call your surgeon and discuss it with him/her.
It is hard to say if your pain is normal. Everybody experiences pain differently despite having very similar procedures. All when you're operating plastic surgeon can answer if your pain is anticipated and normal. Good luck.
