I am a healthy 37 year old beside controlled HBP. The breast augmentation will be under the muscle withh 300cc saline implants. I have heard concern (not from my doctors) about it being a "clean" and "dirty" procedure. Should this be a concern?
Is It Safe to Have a Uterine Ablation and Breast Augmentaion Done at the Same Time? Has Anyone Done This?

Undergo breast augmentation first
While there is likely a small chance of infection, if you are to proceed, I would recommend having the breast augmentation procedure first in the sequence of both procedures.
Uterine Ablation and Breast Augmentation?
Thank you for the question.
I have not been involved with this combination surgery; your concern of combining “clean and dirty” is a legitimate concern. You will have to weigh the pros/cons of this (at least theoretical) concern with the convenience of having the procedures done in one stage. The concern is one of a greater chance of infection and/or encapsulation.
Sorry I cannot provide more precise advice; ultimately this will be your judgment call.
