Can I Get Liquid Facelift if I Am Pregnant?

Doctor Answers 28

No, injectables and fillers not indicated in Pregnancy

No. The product information is clear and we have to go by that rule. In theory it is safe (e.g. HA filers like Restylane or Juvederm) but 99% of sane specialist will not want to risk your health or our registration and perform procedures like fillers or Botox whilst pregnant. Wait till after pregnancy. All the very best in your pregnancy, Dr Davin Lim. (In theory your bub will be 3 now, since this question was asked in 2013.)

Liquid Facelift While Pregnant

Hello, 

Thank you for your question. Injectables are not approved during pregnancy. 

Take care. 

Fillers and pregnancy

No, it is best to not receive any injectables or procedures while you are pregnant or breastfeeding. The risks are not known, so it is best to wait until after you are finished with pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Liquid Facelift and Pregnancy?

Fillers are not approved in pregnancy.  The risks are not known for the fetus.  Pregnancy is temporary, and I would advise waiting until you have delivered.

Liquid Facelift

It depends on what they are injecting but I would not recommend it as your face will change with pregnancy.

Liquid facelift in Los Angeles

Most fillers and cosmetic treatments should be performed after pregnancy, as the effects of these treatments on the fetus are yet to be determined. 

Best,

Can I Get a Liquid Facelift While I'm Pregnant?

If you are pregnant, we would all recommend that you have no elective cosmetic procedure. Although these products have never been studied in pregnant women, and most of us feel the risks to be negligent, we just caution on the safest side as possible and do not inject fillers or toxins knowingly in patients who are pregnant.

Liquid Facelift at the same time as pregnancy

It is not advisable to have botox or dermal fillers during your pregnancy. There are no clinical studies of women having botox or dermal fillers at the same time as there pregnancy so the full implications of a treatment are not known. There are frequent examples of women who did not realize they were pregnant and had dermal fillers or botox without any noted side effects.

I would not recommend anything while pregnant

There is no evidence that botox or fillers cause any harm, but at the same time there are no safety studies to confirm no harm will be caused.  I would let it be until after you had your baby.  Better safe than sorry

Procedures during pregnancy

One never knows what can happen with any procedure (infection, allergic reaction). So I would advise you to wait until after pregnancy and after breast feeding for any elective procedures.
