Pain with side sleeping 6 weeks post breast augmentation
Doctor Answers 2
Breast augmentation, implant tenderness
The 6th intercostal lateral sensory nerve is a common culprit causing intermittent pain in occasional breast implant patients. Supportive bras are sometimes helpful. Shifting the breast position sometimes helps. Ascriptin which is a buffered aspirin helps some patients. MASSAGE OF THE IMPLANT HELPS SOME PATIENTS. SEE YOUR PLASTIC SURGEON FOR THEIR ADVISE. GOOD LUCK....

I appreciate your question.
Since there has been a change in your post op course, please contact your surgeon so he/she can examine you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan at this time.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
Best of luck!
