Post Op Breast Discomfort
It could be that shifting in position and pressure from your implants has caused new/different sensations. It does not sound like you are describing anything unusual but it is always a good idea to let your own Plastic Surgeon advise you about any changes. All the best

Sore on day 7?
Hello and thank you for your question and concerns.
It is good that your post op consultation is set for today because meeting with your plastic surgeon I am sure will ease your mind. Be sure to find out all you can about post operation recovery to ensure it as smooth a process as possible.
Remember that only one week post-operation is an extremely short time frame. I would expect soreness for at least the next 3-4 weeks, sometimes longer. At 6 days post-op sudden soreness, burning, or stinging sensations can and will occur while the implant is stretching out the muscles and tissues and the nerve endings are growing back. Remember that final results will not be seen till the 4-6 month mark. And scars wont heal for another one year to one and a half years. Be sure to bring up any concerns about recovery to your board certified plastic surgeon.
