Re: Left breast pain 3 years after implants.
 
I would see your surgeon and perhaps get an ultrasound done to see if the implant ruptured and the pain is from inflammation. It can rupture within the fibrous capsule your body forms around it and cause no change in shape. The contents of the implant can cause inflammation in the surrounding tissue and cause pain.
