I would check with your immunologist/rheumatolgoist before considering breast implatns to make sure you are healthy enough to have it done.

Althoug breast implant have been associated with automimmune disease in the lay press and in junk science reports, this has not been substantiated through larger clinical investigations. Therefore, I do not see a contraindication after consutling with your immunologist or rheumatologist.
