Low Thyroid and Breast Augmentation

If you are being treated for low thyroid hormone or suspect you are hypothyroid, I would recommend you see an endocrinologist and tell him or her your concerns and about your planned surgery.  A good History, Physical and some blood tests should alleviate your concerns and probably make your plastic surgeon  more at ease also.  If you don't know of an endocrinologist ask your plastic surgeon for a referral.

Provided you are under care for your low thyroid, breast augmentation should not be a problem. Your primary care doctor will be able to tell you when your condition is well managed and stable.

Low Thyroid and Breast Augmentation

It's best to get the thyroid under control before undergoing surgery.  Your Plastic Surgeon will most likely require a medical clearance before scheduling your Breast Augmentation.  Best wishes!

Low thyroid is not a contraindication to breast augmentation if it is properly treated.

Low thyroid levels can create long-term problems if they are not treated. If you are under proper care there's no contraindication to a breast augmentation. I would not undergo breast augmentation until your low thyroid level is under control.

Well-controlled thyroid conditions will not  be contra indications to breast augmentation surgery. Best to be seen by your internist to confirm this control prior to proceeding.

Low Thyroid and Breast Implants

Hopefully you are under treatment for your thyroid condition. Although hyperthryroid patients have some extra anesthetic risks to consider, your condition should not interfere with plans for breast enlargement. 

All the best.

Hi Forte

Low Thyroid is usually not a problem, and you can have your Breast Implant Surgery.

You need to let your Anesthesiologist know about it so that necessary precautions can be taken

Hope this helps
