PAINFUL BREAST IMPLANTS
CAUSES OF PAINFUL BREAST IMPLANTS *:
AFTER SURGERY RECOVERY
Painful breast implants in breast augmentation procedures usually begins to end after the bruising and swelling period has resolved. Pain may be caused by the excessive swelling, aggravation to the tissues from surgery, or your body getting used to the new shape and feel of the implant. If you are experiencing uncomfortable or painful breast implants after surgery, you may want to consider proper compression garments, sleeping more upright, ice packs, or Lymphatic Massage to speed the removal of swelling and decrease the pain right after surgery.
Painful breast implants can also be experienced after the recovery phase if you are beginning to develop CAPSULAR CONTRACTURE (Also called Capsular Contraction). Capsular Contracture is when the normal shell that forms around the implant begins to harden, “contract”, and squeeze the implant. This may cause it to look like the shape and position has changed and feels harder than normal. Painful breast implants may be caused by Capsular Contracture, as the shell around the implant has nerves and blood vessels, which when abnormal contraction or “squeezing” occurs, send signals to the brain in the form of pain.
Painful breast implants may also be a result of the change in biomechanics of the muscles and tissues around the implant area. Muscles that have been moved, pushed, or compressed to accommodate the new implant may show up in the form of painful breast implants. These tissues normally stretch and allow room for the new implant but sometimes cause pain during the “squeeze in” period.
This same phenomenon that can occur to muscles can occur to nerves as well. Nerves that have been irritated, compressed, or cut my produce changes in the area of surgery as well and appear as painful breast implants. If you experience sensory changes in the nipple, shooting electric like pains, decrease or increase in light touch sensation to the breast, or painful breast implants, you may have neurological changes occurring. Distal or peripheral nerves (Nerves that are not of the brain and spinal cord) do have the ability to recover and regenerate and may just need some time to recover. There is no guarantee though that sensation or nerve recovery will be 100%.
