    I feel like I made a mistake and had dermal fillers injected in my face. This was very selfish of me. What I had injected was Juviderm ultra plus and Voluma. I am breastfeeding my 4 month old and having strong regret and basically panicking. I should not have done this and put my baby at risk. I don’t want to stop nursing but will if it’s safer for her.
    Everything I have read is that there is no evidence if it’s transferred to my milk and to baby. So it’s a big question mark. And I feel guilty every time I feed my baby. It says that this absorbs over time. Where does it absorb? Is this harmful to my baby? Any insight on this would be much appreciated. I know I can have Hyaluronidase injected to dissolve this but is that risky? Thank you very much for your time and would appreciate your input.

      Dermal fillers are few and most of them are resorbed over time and have to be replaced. Most are derivatives of Hyaluronic acid, which is a normal constituent of human tissues.

      Below is a nice article detailing all the current types of dermal fillers. I don't think any of these pose a problem for mothers and their breastfed infants. Most would be resorbed over many months and pose NO problem an infant.

      Abstract

      Injection of dermal fillers is the second most frequent nonsurgical cosmetic procedure performed in the USA. Dermal fillers are an option in the treatment of volume deficiency, scars, and rhytides; facial sculpting; facial contouring; and augmentation of specific anatomical sites such as the lips. The number of injectable dermal fillers available on the market increases yearly. Dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons should regularly review treatment options to provide patients with safe and effective filler options. This paper extensively reviews the properties of the available fillers, such as their rheology, longevity, and adverse effects, and how these properties affect the choice of filler agent for a particular patient or a particular site. Also, trends in dermal filler injections are discussed. PMID: 26081021 D
