Painful Breast 3 yrs after Augmentation
Thank you for your inquiry. Naturally the first recommendation would be to check with your treating Plastic Surgeon as soon as possible to determine if there is something going on. It is unusual for there to be a problem developing suddenly in the absence of some injury or other precipitating factor.

These set of symptoms is puzzling for someone who's been out of surgery as long as you have. For what it's worth, ruptured implants don't present that way. If you are my patient, a simple in office ultrasound could discern whether or not the implant was ruptured. An acute seroma has presented to me with similar symptoms. This likewise can be diagnosed with ultrasound. I recommend you see your plastic surgeon as soon as possible. Good luck.
