It is common to experience sensory changes such as pain, numbness, or diminished/complete loss of skin or nipple sensation in areas that have had surgery. This may or may not resolve itself.
After several months, most patients will experience normal sensation. In some cases, partial or permanent loss of nipple and skin sensation may occur, but this is uncommon. Some patients experience hypersensitivity of the breast and/or nipples for a few months after the procedure.
Damage to the upper limb nerves resulting in a loss of sensation or pain can be treated with medication, and may or may not completely resolve itself.
If this would be of great concern to you, you may want to consider avoiding breast augmentation, as there is no way to predict if this will occur in each circumstance.
