Burning pain following a breast implant revision surgery

If you are having pain that feels like a deep burn or ache that radiates across the breast you may be experiencing some bruising of the nerves of the lateral breast. Usually gentle massage along the lateral edge of the breast will help this condition.  Seek advice from your plastic surgeon.

I'm sorry to hear about the discomfort you have experienced since your revisionary breast surgery. Only your plastic surgeon, who knows exactly what was done, is in the position to provide you with a meaningful diagnosis and treatment recommendations.

 Best wishes.

Fire like sensations an burning after breast augmentation

Fire sensations and burning can be nerves re-awakening, causalgia (a nerve disorder), or even an infection to name a few. It is best to see your surgeon to make sure things are OK.
