Nipple sensation and hard nipples after augmentation

Thanks for your questions and post.  After performing over 5,000 augs, I can tell you that over 98% of my patients retain nipple sensation once the healing process is complete.  If your nipples are slightly hypersensitive, it can cause firmness with the least amount of stimulation.  Hypersensitivity indicates incomplete healing.  Some supplements that may help your nerves to heal include high grade fish oil (or Krill oil), alpha lipoic acid, and CoEnzyme Q10.  Any natural food store should have these (don't get them at a pharmacy or grocery store).  Hope this helps!
