Could there be a problem with my breast implants?

Significant post-operative pain after breast enlargements.
There is a wide spectrum of pain that patients experience after breast enlargements.
I strongly advise that you now discuss your severe pain with your plastic surgeon and get back to him (her) for an examination and pain management assistance.
Severe pain post-op
Anytime you have severe pain, it should be checked over. This could represent a post-op hematoma (bleeding) or some other complication. Best to check in with your surgeon for an in-person evaluation.
Pain and post-op augmentation
Usually pain medications will help normal post-op discomfort. If it is really severe, then it might be worth seeing your doc or calling him to review the care and to make sure you do not have a hematoma.
