See your surgeon

Please see your surgeon to have this checked out since it is recent and you sound like it's quite painful. Best of luck.

Pain after a breast augmentation

If you have had sudden onset of pain when all things were previously normal, you should seek out a board-certified plastic surgeon.  You will need a good evaluation to see what is causing the problem.

Sudden pain in a breast implant

Sudden pain and discomfort can be associated with trauma or change in the capsule surrounding your implant.  If you were my patient, I would ask you to come in and be examined and evaluated with a breast exam and ultrasound.

Pain after breast augmentation

Sudden pain 5 years after breast augmentation usually means something like a small scar band has torn.  See your board certified plastic surgeon to be sure there is nothing worrisome happening.

Pain 5 years after Augmentation

I would seek out a BC PS ASAP. Yoyr pocket may have torn and possibly affect the outcome of your procedure. I would tell you to act quickly and a problem may be averted. Good luck!

I believe you need to have an exam and have a Ps take a look at you and see what could be causing the pain.
