Is Nipple Sensation Lost After Breast Augmentation?

Permanent loss of sensation is very unusual following breast lift and breast augmentation surgery. In the vast majority of patients who have decreased sensation following a breast lift, sensation returns without treatment.

Under these circumstances, decreased sensation is mainly related to the swelling and stretching of the nerves during surgery. It’s not unusual for patients to have pins and needles sensations known as dysesthesia following surgery. This resolves with time as well. This is when nerves are starting to connect again.

It is rare that permanent loss of sensation occurs following breast lift or augmentation surgery. Although the exact incidence is unknown, most surgeons would estimate the frequency at about one to five percent.
