Breast Pain after implants

I have a dull ache in my left breast 1 year after augmentation. I can't lay flat on my back because it seems like my breast fall to far under my armpit, and make it very uncomfortable. I'm a 48 year old otherwise very healthy woman.

Re: Breast Pain after implants

More than likely its capsular contracture. The breast tissue hardens after the implants drop- and this causes extreme pain. This is sometimes the result of a doctor who didnt place them correctly. Are they submuscular or under the skin?
Go see your doctor and have him look- he may need to do an ultrasound of the breast to be sure- but if they have capsulated, the only remedy is to open you up and replace them-
Its not likely a pulled muscle- those dont hurt the same way- unless you did over exercise and thats what it feels like?
You really need to go see the surgeon who did the work. Im sorry- but this can happen, its one of the risks he should have told you about before you decided to get implants.
