Pregnancy After Restalyne and Perlane Lip Augmentation

I was wondering how soon it is safe to become pregnant after Restalyne and Perlane Lip augmentation? I cannot find any studies.

How long after filler for pregnancy


These filler materials are made from materials that naturally occur in your body.  They tend not to travel in our blood stream.  I think it is safe for you to get pregnant soon after filler placement.

Pregnancy after Restylane and Perlane


I think you should be reassured that the Restylane and Perlane material in the lip are extremely unlikely to cause any harm to the developing fetus. I agree with Dr. Wallach that cosmetic procedures in general are best avoided during pregnancy (including Botox, chemical peels, sclerotherapy).

To address your question, I would not worry if you became pregnant shortly after hyaluronic acid filler injections.

Good luck.

Pregnancy and fillers


This is a very good question, which I do not think anyone has studied.  However, it is probably OK to become pregnant after injections of filler. On the other hand, I would avoid procedures while pregnant.
