Thank you for your question. It is recommended to avoid all cosmetic treatments while pregnant and/or breastfeeindg. To be sure, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment. I hope this helps.

Fillers while breastfeeding

I never inject a patient with fillers while they are pregnant or breastfeeding.  No studies have been done on filler injections while pregnant or breastfeeding.  Also, the FDA has not approved these treatments while pregnant or breastfeeding.  Please seek a qualified professional for your treatment.  Good luck!

Thanks for your question. This is a question that we get asked often by our patients. I would not get injected while you are pregnant or breastfeeding as this could lead to problems and is not recommended by the FDA.

Hyaluronic/collagen breastfeeding

I would suggest you refrain from injections during the time you are breastfeeding. There isn't a lot of data testing during pregnancy or breastfeeding, so better safe than sorry.
