Is it normal to have a burning sensation in your chest years after a breast reduction?
Doctor Answers 1
Burning sensation in breasts 4 years after surgery
Breast reduction surgery is designed to reduce and/or eliminate symptoms of oversized breasts: neck pain, back pain, breast pain, skin irritation/infections, shoulder grooving, numbness and tingling in the hands. Persistent discomfort years after surgery is not normal. Evaluation by a board certified Plastic Surgeon is indicated to assess and treat the underlying problem.
