This could be normal healing and nerves regenerating. To know for sure, schedule a follow up with your plastic surgeon.

It is nice to hear that you are happy with the results.  It could be body response to healing at the the area of areola. I am not assuming that you will have any problem regarding this burning sensation. It would be better to have an exam with your plastic surgeon.

Pain in both breasts a year after surgery

Thank you for asking about your breast augmentation.

I am glad you have had no problems this past year. Your new and unpleasant feelings suggest that a capsular contracture may be forming. So contact your plastic surgeon and arrange to be seen to determine the cause of the pain and what should be done.
