I have had a breast reduction. Ironically a few weeks later I went into remission. I think if you have control of your disease and have a top notch surgeon you could come through OK, but I recommend against doing 2 surgeries at once. Your body will have to fight off the effects and it may trigger worse problems than doing them one at a time. You also want to be in the hospital and kept at least overnight. Sorry, but you need to have the stuff available for a worse case senario. I had my reduction done because I was a 44 G and my back is not good. The surgery left me a 44 D and has greatly improved my back. I am unsure a surgeon would be willing to do a surgery on a lupus patient just for cosmetic purposes if they are any good.
