Numbness under arm after BA with a inframmamary fold incision

Hey! So I don’t know if this is normal, but in my right breast after BA and til now, two months post op today, I can’t feel the outsides or under my boob, and surrounding the incision which is under the breast. But I heard this is normal, what’s weird is that under my right arm, and extending a bit to my back, I lost all feeling. I can feel pressure but not light touch. Is it normal?

  • It can be.  Likely your intercostal brachial nerve was stretched during the surgery.  Very common during mastectomies for cancer, less so in breast augmentation.  It is almost certainly intact but stretched, meaning not cut.  I suspect you'll get much better within months.  Remember that nerves grow (at the very fastest) 1mm/day.  So it takes a while for them to completely regenerate.  I suspect you'll get much better in time.


    I would be honored to see you at my office in Raleigh, NC!
