Is it painful to get an implant inserted?

Most people just feel a little pinch or slight sting when they get the numbing injection. You shouldn’t be able to feel the implant being inserted. Your arm may ache a little where the implant was inserted after the numbing wears off, but it goes away quickly. You may have a bit of tenderness or swelling around the implant for a few days and it may look bruised for a week or two.

Keeping the area dry for 24 hours is important afterwards. You should be able to feel both ends of the rod under your skin. If this changes at any time, contact us for a consultation.
