Why do I still have pain in my breasts four months later?

In July I had breast augmentation and a breast lift. I have gone from a B to a D. last week the scar on my left breast from the nipple down split to about a centimeter. They said it was just where a stubborn stitch had pushed its way through the skin. I've had an aching pain in my left breast on the left side that's gradually gotten worse. I've been to see my surgeon and he said it's not the implant or scar tissue, it's breast tissue. I never had this pain until I had the breast surgery.

I am sorry to hear of your difficulty. The fact that you had a buried stitch extrusion and opening of the vertical lift scar on the left certainly could cause pain on the left side. Long term breast pain after implants can also be caused by nerve healing. If nerves are stretched or injured after breast surgery, nerve healing can take a long time. Nerve healing pain is usually intermittent, can be itching burning pain or "worms crawling" type pain.

Sometimes, when we place the implants under the muscle, the patient will feel pain for no more than a month. When we place it Under the fascia or the gland you will just feel a pressure that will last for no more than 10 days. Othertimes, the patient has stress and can feel pain in the intercostal space even without surgery. Please schedule an appointment with your plastic surgeon to see the reason.
