I am curious as to if breast implants are possible given I am on Warfarin Sodium otherwise known as Coumadin ? Is it high risk ? I take the blood thinner due to being on a mechanical mitral heart valve , I have a genetic condition Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy. I am 28 years old with no breasts whatsoever. Thank you.
It is very important to see your family doctor or cardiologist to get their advice. My patients must stop their blood thinners for a few days prior to their surgery. If they can not stop the medications then I can not perform the surgery.
As you are aware, your medication causes your blood to clot less. You would need to stop your medication to undergo breast augmentation treatment whether using an implant or with fat injections. Whether this risk is acceptable is only something you and your cardiologist can determine.
Anticoagulation Management For Breast Augmentation
This question is all about the safety of you being off your anti-coagulation for a limited period of time to undergo breast augmentation. Only your cardiologist can make that determination. If he/she feels that a short period of normal coagulation poses no cardiac risks, then there are well established protocols for scaling down and getting you back on Coumadin around a surgery event.

Implants and cardiac issues
I think that this is something to first discuss with your cardiologist. If he is OK with it, you would have to stop your coumadin before surgery because of the bleeding issues.
