Can You Sleep on Your Stomach After You Have Had a Face Filler in Your Cheeks or Will It Make It Go Away?

Doctor Answers (4)

For the first few hours after filler injection, it is better to avoid pressure on the areas treated.

I recently participated in a panel of filler experts who discussed this issue. The most common cause of filler displacement is massage, but excessive movement from chewing, smiling, etc, may also affect the newly placed filler. Sleeping on the face is usually not a problem, unless you go to bed right after treatment.

Sleeping with Facial fillers

Actually, this is a good question. The fillers become fixed in place shortly after the treatment. Please feel free to sleep in your normal positions.

Dear sissy88,

We have never had any issues related to sleep positioning and filler complications.  I would suggest that a good night's sleep is worth the risks, whatever they may be.
