5. Loss Of Nipple Sensation
Loss of nipple sensation is common after a breast augmentation. It happens if nerves are nicked during a surgery. Depending on your condition, loss of sensitivity might last from six months to 1.5 years. In rare occasions, nipple sensitivity may be lost altogether.
One of the main causes of changes in nipple sensitivity is the size of the implant. If it’s much bigger than your normal size, you can expect loss of sensitivity for a certain period of time. Be sure to ask your surgeon about nipple sensitivity and what you can expect after the operation.
