Are nipple bumps common after getting a breast augmentation?

I am 10 days post surgery and have started to develop small bumps on my nipples. It’s on both of them so I keep telling myself it’s just part of the normal recovery and healing process, but I don’t know for sure. I have never had these before so should I be worried?

Without photos, it is difficult to determine what the bumps are.  It may be an allergic reaction or contact dermatitis from something that touched the nipples during or after the surgery.  I would recommend following up with your surgeon for an evaluation.  You may need to be seen by a dermatologist to best determine what the bumps are.
