Close Up of Female Torso In Bathing SuitIt is common to feel itchiness after your breast augmentation surgery. This sensation is typically related to a histamine release during the healing process and also the return of nerve sensations in the treated area. You should discuss your symptoms with Dr. Moraitis and not simply take anti-histamines for treatment. It is important to ensure that the itchiness is not caused by any allergic reactions, since the same nerve fibers carry pain and itchy sensation.

Any sensory changes in our body and stretching of the skin can also cause itchiness. Another reason for itchiness could be irritation due to the post-surgery bra you wear.
