The sharp pain that you are feeling may be a muscle spasm which is normal after a breast augmentation. To be sure that it is not something else, I would definitely follow up with your plastic surgeon.

Sharp shooting pains after breast augmentation can be normal for several or can be herald for other problems including develpment of scar tissue and a capsular contracture.  Its important to see your plastic surgeon so that you can be examined and the likely cause to be determined.

Breast pain after an augmentation can be so many different things.  Withotu an exam it is impossible to say what the cause could be.

Without pictures or seeing you in person, it is impossible to give you specific advice.  I would recommend talking with your surgeon to see what is going on.


Good Luck.

If there is no redness and you do not have a fever, it is unlikely that this is an infection. This is probably scar tissue that is forming around your implant. I suggest you see your surgeon to determine if this may be a capsular contracture.
