QUESTION

How Long Should I Wait to Get Injected with Botox After Pregnancy?

Is Botox is safe if breast feeding?

ANSWER

Botox and Pregnancy

Quick Answer: It is recommended that you wait until you are no longer pregnant or breast-feeding before getting Botox injections. Thank you for your question. In our San Francisco area practice we do not recommend patients who are pregnant or breast-feeding receive Botox injections. Botox is pregnancy and breast-feeding category C, which means it has not been found to cause harm to the fetus or breast-feeding infant, however, not enough research exists to consider it safe for use during pregnancy or breast-feeding. If you are NOT breast-feeding it is safe to get Botox once the baby has been delivered. There is no waiting period required. I hope this helps.
