So....you are still early and you will know more as the process continues.
Nipple Sensation after Breast lift and Breast Augmentation
Thanks for your question. Nipple sensation is variable in all women. Some have some, some have none. There is never any guarantee that you will have nipple sensation after ANY breast surgery because it varies from patient to patient and from side to side. It can be compressed from the implant or cut during surgery. The nerve comes from the 4th rib. Give it time. It may take up to one year. But it may never return. I recommend desensitizing exercises for the one that is overly sensitive. Discuss with your plastic surgeon. Be patient. Feeling pins and needles can be signs that it is returning. Good Luck!
All the best,
