Are there any reasons I would not be able to get breast implants?

Your surgeon will not perform breast implant surgery if:

  • There is an active infection anywhere in your body.
  • You have existing cancer or pre-cancer of your breast and have not received adequate treatment for these conditions.
  • You are currently pregnant or nursing.

In these cases, surgeons do not recommend breast implant surgery. This is because it may interfere with the treatment of active infection or cancer and the safety of the pregnancy or nursing. These factors may also affect the healing process after the surgery. 

Although unlikely, there may be other factors preventing you from getting breast implants. If you have any outstanding questions about your eligibility for a breast augmentation procedure, you should speak with a Medbelle surgeon and explain your situation.
