Inflammation and scar tissue formation are possible with any piercing. I'm not sure why this would be more of a concern for you than anyone else. Perhaps ask your Plastic Surgeon to clarify what they meant.

Thank you for your question.In my opinion, I wouldn’t recommend getting them pierced. Even though it is low risk, there is still potential for complications and infection to occur. You really should try to reduce your risk of infection in the breast area as it can cause complications with your breast implants. Ultimately, the decision is yours but remember when making the decision that even though it is a low risk procedure, there is still a chance of complications arising. I hope this helps.
Good luck in your endeavors!
