The Truth Behind Nipple Sensation After Breast Augmentation Surgery

breast augmentation surgeryIf you have either just undergone breast augmentation surgery or if you have it scheduled, then you will want to know all that you can expect from this type of procedure— including the good, the bad, and the ugly. As one of the things that many patients complain from, the loss of nipple sensitivity can be something that concerns patients that may even inhibit them from undergoing any type of augmentation in the first place. As a sensation that is sexually stimulation, having nipple sensation is something that you don’t want to mess with. Read on to learn more about what you can expect in regards to nipple sensation after breast augmentation surgery.

Will It Last?
Right after you undergo breast augmentation surgery, there are many things regarding your breasts that won’t feel normal— including your nipple sensation. Not only will your breasts be sore and tender to the touch, but also your nipple sensation may either be extremely prominent (almost painful) or it may feel non-existent. Although you may be worried about both of those scenarios, they are both extremely common and your nipple sensation should return after just a few weeks and after your breasts have had the ample time needed in order to heal properly.

There are some very rare cases, however, in which patients lose all their feeling in their nipples when a nerve is hit during the surgery. But because this type of scenario is very rare, it really is nothing to worry about.

Will It Hurt?
As mentioned above, right after you undergo breast augmentation surgery, it is very normal for your breasts to be sore and tender to the touch, even your nipples. And although it may sound unfortunate, your nipples themselves may be a bit tender or painful after surgery but it will quickly subside as your breasts begin to heal properly.
