Injecting fillers after lorazepam
As long as you discussed the filler before, agreed on the plan, and gave consent before the sedative, I see no problem with lorazepam before your filler. Make sure to have a driver lined up, as you shouldn't drive while under the influence of sedatives.
Anxiety medication and fillers
There should be no contraindications to take an anti anxiety medication prior to filler injections if you are not allergic to the medications. That said it is rare to have someone need those medications if the procedure is done properly there should be minor pain on injection. Find a doctor that is experienced board certified injector that will be willing to prescribe the medications and review the consent forms.
Anxiety With Injectables
You are definitely not alone in feeling anxious prior to receiving any sort of injection! Medically speaking, there is no contraindication to taking lorazepam prior to the procedure - just be sure to sign your consent forms before taking it! I like to make sure my patients are as comfortable as possible. I find that when my patients are comfortable and relaxed, we can achieve better results. I suggest you find a physician that you feel more comfortable with! Best of luck to you!
Lorzapam for filler injections
Thank you for asking about
your Voluma and other filler injections.
- Your request is not medically ill-advised.
- Pain sensitivity varies -
- An occasional person needs mild sedation before injections.
- You should not drive yourself home after taking it.
- But you will need to find a new plastic surgeon to treat you, one willing to prescribe this for you.
The problem is the great increase in mis-use of and death from prescribed sedatives and narcotics.
Doctors and pharmacies are under scrutiny for over-prescribing.
Your new doctor may have had an experience that led her to never prescribe controlled substances.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Hope you found this answer helpful. Best wishes.
Valium prior to fillers
If you really insist on it, then your physician should be able to accommodate especially if you sign the appropriate consent forms prior to the medication. I have never had to give valium but I have heard of patients taking it prior to getting fillers. Your solution is easy, find another provider.

Valium and Facial Fillers
Facial fillers such as Voluma or Juvederm have fabulous results but there can be some anxiety associated with getting the injections. If you are nervous and need valium I see no contraindication in taking it before the procedure. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with facial injections and who understands you.
Taking valium before fillers
I'm sorry that getting fillers distresses you so much. I have a few patients who premedicate with valium before any procedures and while I find it excessive, their comfort is my main concern. And really, treating them is easier if they take their meds anyway. So if your new doctor won't give you the medication, you may simply want to find another physician because patient care and comfort should be part of our jobs...
