Pills to dry up breast milk before breast augmentation, why?

Taking pills to dry up your breast milk just so you can have a breast augmentation is probably not in your best interest. What's the rush? Usually breast milk dries up over about six months post cessation of breast feeding. Since this is a totally elective procedure, why not just wait and make this procedure as low risk for infection as possible.
