Having sickle cell trait is not a contraindication for breast augmentation. Prior to surgery, your hemoglobin and iron levels should be optimized. Communication between your hematologist and your plastic surgeon can help with the timing and preparation for surgery.

Sickle Cell and Breast Augmentation
The answer is YES, you can have breast augmentation if you are a carrier of the disease (and I assume you have never expressed the alleles that you carry? i.e. you have never had a Sickle Crisis?). I would recommend that first you discuss your plans with your family doctor/hematologist that follows you closely. And next, meet with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in Breast Surgery and let them know your medical history. I also suggest that you have your Anesthesia performed by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist who will monitor you closely throughout the procedure.
I hope this helps!
Breast Augmentation and Sickle Cell Trait
If you have sickle cell trait and you are followed by your family physician or a hematologist that would give you medical clearance for the procedure then you could proceed. In preparation for the procedure and during the procedure steps would be taken to prevent a crisis (YES people who have trait can have a crisis in certain situations). Consult with several Board Certified Plastic Surgeons.
