It 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 skin also causes itchiness. Another reason could be irritation due to the post-surgery bra you wear.
Some more common reasons for this itching sensation in patients in Palm Harbor, FL include:
- Adhesives and dressings used post-surgery
- Prep solution used during surgery
- Any pain medicines or antibiotics
