Extreme Breast Sensitivity Months After Breast Augmentation procedure?

I had breast augmentation surgery 6 mnths ago and my right breast is fine but my the skin on my left breast feels sore when clothing rubs over it and feels extremely sensitive - can you help?

ANSWER

Breast Sensitivity After Breast Augmentation

Thanks for your question Nerves that supply sensation to the skin and nipple can be injured during dissection to create the pocket where the implant sites or can be stretched by the implant. Either way the result can be increased or decreased sensitivity. In your case massage or physical therapy can be useful to retrain your nerves and speed your recovery. I hope this helps.
