Liquid Facelift While Pregnant
I don’t encourage my patients get a liquid facelift during pregnancy. It is mixed with lidocaine, which is a pregnancy category C drug and we don’t know what the effects are in embryos, so I would not take a chance. I typically encourage one to wait until after pregnancy.
Fillers During Pregnancy?
There have not been enough studies done to determine if liquid fillers such as Botox, Radiesse, Belotero, etc. have any effects on a fetus. So, to be on the safe side, we advise pregnant patients to wait until after the birth of the child to have any cosmetic procedures done. “Dr. D”
The sacrifices we make!
Liquid facelifts can produce some amazing rejuvenation results without surgery, using injectable fillers and neuromodulators, but as others have said, they're a "no no" while you're pregnant or breastfeeding.

Liquid facelift while pregnant
Generally with pregnancy we recommend deferring all procedures that are elective. While there has been no evidence that facial fillers can harm the unborn child, it is always safer to not take any chances.
Liquid Lift is great--but not while pregnant
Congratulations on your pregnancy. The liquid lift is a way to create a more youthful appearance non surgically. I utilize different dermal fillers, neuromodulators, etc. to create a this appearance. However, during pregnancy, it is not considered safe. After your pregnancy, while you are enjoying your new bundle of joy, it is possible to do a liquid lift. In fact, since the recovery is minimal, it may be a great way to refresh your look and fit into your busy schedule.
Liquid Facelift great non surgical treatment
Generally liquid facelifts use some form of hyaluronic fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm with either Botox or Dysport injections. Since we do not know the effects of these treatments on pregnant women, it is best to steer clear from them all together. In fact, you might have a hard time finding a provider who would preform these procedures on your while pregnant. It is best to wait till after pregnancy and nursing before doing these treatments.
Injections with pregnancy
Liquid facelift, Botox or Juvederm injections or any other fillers should NOT be done during pregnancy. In fact, I would steer away from any non urgent medical procedure during pregnancy, especially in the first trimester when th fetus is forming all of its features and organs.
Liquid facelift if pregnant? Juvederm/Radiesse/Botox
The Liquid Facelifts we offer our patient include facial fillers such as Juvederm® and Radiesse® as well as Botox® injections. According to my colleague, Dr. Allan Wu, a board certified gynecologist and fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, “There is no clear evidence either way about the safe use of facial fillers during pregnancy. And though some women require Botox® injections to treat serious health conditions, because it is a neurotoxin, we do not administer Botox® for cosmetic reasons to our patients who are pregnant or nursing.” I well understand your desire to look your best, especially when expecting. But the safety and well being of your unborn child and infant comes first! Final Answer: You should not get a Liquid Facelift if you are pregnant.
Liquid facelift when pregnant.
Our office would not inject you if you were pregnant. While there is no literature to say that injectables would hurt the fetus, most physicians would steer clear. Your face will change throughout the pregnancy as well. Get through the pregnancy, and then go from there.
