I got a breast augmentation 2 weeks ago. Why does my right arm hurt when I raise it up or try to reach something I get a pain?

Thank you for your question. It is not unusual to have some discomfort when first using your arms and chest muscles after breast augmentation. I recommend that you let your Plastic Surgeon know so that they can rule out anything concerning.

Congratulations on your augmentation catalinaa7! Everyone recovers differently and it really depends on what kind of augmentation you had and if the same thing was done on both sides. Sometimes increased activity with one arm more than the other can lead to unmasking new pain. If the breast looks different and feels differnt is it is important to maintain follow up with your doctor and have your concerns addressed in person as well and see if they do not want you doing more activity with that arm as you hairdress. Best of luck, MMT
