Thanks for your post about dermal fillers and breast feeding. It sounds like you are really concerned about continuing breast feeding after having fillers and the safety for your baby.
You may want to contact the practitioner who originally provided the fillers for their opinion however there is little research on the safety or otherwise of fillers or dissolving them and breast feeding.

I feel like I made a mistake and had dermal fillers injected into my face. This was very selfish of me. What I had injected was Juvederm ultra plus and Voluma. I am breastfeeding my 4 months 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 the 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.
