Many patients complain of changes in nipple and breast sensation immediately after breast augmentation. It is common for patients to complain that the breasts have a dull sensation, and, in rare situations, are hypersensitive.
The good news is that the changes in sensation, in most cases, are temporary. It can take several months for the changes in sensation to resolve, but they do almost always improve. There is a slightly greater chance of nipple numbness with an incision around the areola (pigmented skin surrounding the nipple) than with other incisions.
