swelling and nipple sensitivity are common after breast augmentation.

Dr. Cooper

When will my swelling, tightness, and nipple sensitivity go away after breast augmentation performed 4 weeks ago?

  • It is common to still have nipple sensitivity and some swelling 4 weeks after breast augmentation
  • With time, over the course of a few months, the tightness will resolve, and most likely the nipple sensitivity will resolve as well. 
  • The good news is that you still have nipple sensation, although hypersensitivity of the nipples can definitely be annoying. 
  • Thanks for sharing your concerns, and hang in there!
