Have a few questions.

I had my breasts done around 2 1/2 weeks ago. I weight train and my surgeon informed me he had to cut my pecs due to how developed they were. It feels like my sides are chaffed and my nipples and the areas around are constant being stung. Only relief is laying down with nothing on and not moving at all. Also one breast is still swollen and higher than the other and both are rarely warm still.

Procedure: Breast Augmentation

Altered sensations and some swelling is expected after breast surgery.

Always good to keep in close contact with your plastic surgeon’s office and follow their post operative instructions to ensure that you have the best outcome after your surgery.

If you feel something isn’t right or something has changed contact your surgeon. Best of luck with the rest of your recovery!

2 1/2 weeks is not long at all and you need to wait a little. Not moving at all could make things worse. One breast is always a little different from the other and the body can react differently from one side to the other. What to do is to discuss the problem with your plastic surgeon when you see them.
