Voluma & Breastfeeding

Since there haven't been any definite studies done yet on Voluma & breastfeeding, I would advise you to wait until you stop breastfeeding before getting Voluma. It's always better to err on the side of caution.

Voluma while breastfeeding?

Thank you for your question. I recommend you wait until you have stopped breastfeeding. Research has not been conducted to determine if it is safe or not. 

Voluma and breastfeeding

Since there have not been any studies on Voluma during pregnancy or breastfeeding to determine whether it is safe or not, I recommend you wait until after you are done breastfeeding before you get Voluma.  Always seek treatment form a qualified professional!

All the neurotoxins and fillers are not safety tested for nursing so I would follow the manufacturer's directions to avoid them during nursing.

Voluma & Brest Feeding

Dear Nonaseta:

for a safety perspective, I would recommend that you wait to have your enhancement with Voluma after breast feeding.  Best wishes.

Not approved

Juvederm Voluma has unknown risks to an infant of a breast-feeding mother.  It is likely OK, but to be safe, extensive testing would need to be performed.

Voluma or indeed any filler and also botulinum toxins are not approved for pregnant women and women who are breast feeding. Once you have stopped breast feeding you will be able to evaluate your aesthetic needs and ask you Plastic Surgeon for advice.

If I'm breastfeeding can I have JVD Voluma?

Thank you for your excellent question.  In a case of "better safe than sorry" it is best to avoid treatment with fillers and neuromodulators until you have completed your breastfeeding.  Hope this helps.
