Can I Get Pregnant After Receiving Facial Fillers?

When it comes to pregnancy and facial fillers, Sonia Batra, a dermatologist at Parson Skin Center, has a clear answer: there is no safe way to inject fillers during pregnancy. None of the fillers have been studied in pregnant women, so they are considered to be category C, meaning that there is no evidence that they cause harm, but there is also no evidence that they are safe. So, can you use injectables such as Botox or dermal fillers while pregnant? The answer is no. Injectables and dermal fillers are not approved by the FDA for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

However, if you received Botox or dermal fillers early in the first trimester before you knew you were pregnant or because of the lack of FDA approval, don't worry. These cosmetic treatments are very unlikely to affect you or your baby in any way. The truth is that nobody knows much about the combination of Botox and pregnancy. Doctors discuss a question sent on Facebook by a viewer who wants to get facial fillers but is also trying to get pregnant.

Most dermal fillers last 6 to 12 months, but dissolving the filler before that time is also an option. In addition, many pregnant women already have enlarged lips, so opting for dermal fillers is usually not a good idea, especially if you prefer fillers that are durable. In conclusion, it's best to avoid facial fillers while pregnant or trying to conceive. If you have already received facial fillers before becoming pregnant, there is no need to worry as long as you follow your doctor's instructions.
