Many women desire to have their breasts augmented as this gives them a more feminine look and feel. Although breast augmentation surgery sounds like a good idea, it may not be a good fit for every woman.

There are cases when you have to postpone your breast augmentation plans, especially if you have the following conditions.

  • If you have autoimmune diseases, like scleroderma or lupus, breast augmentation, along with other similar surgeries, may not be applicable to you.
  • If you have a condition that affects your body’s ability to heal, such as poorly controlled diabetes, surgery could be a bad idea. This also goes for those with blood clotting conditions such as a patient currently in Coumadin therapy.
  • If your immune system is under compromise, which may be due to immunosuppressive therapies like cancer drugs, you will have to postpone your breast augmentation.
  • If you have a condition that reduces your body’s ability to supply blood to breast tissues, breast augmentation may have to be delayed.

It is extremely important to have an initial consultation with a reliable doctor before undergoing breast augmentation surgery. Your doctor knows if you are a good candidate for the procedure or if it is best to cancel your breast augmentation plans for the meantime.
