Your belly is your main focus these days, but you may still be considering cosmetic options, like Botox, for other parts of your body. Let’s start with the bad news: Because there haven’t been any studies on having Botox while with baby, it’s smart to wait until post-pregnancy to get plumped. Now for the good news: Pregnancy practically guarantees that you won’t need Botox. This is because having a baby on board causes you to retain water, puffing up your face and filling in laugh lines and crows feet. Another medical procedure that many pregnant women consider is corrective eye surgery like LASIK. Unfortunately, while it’s probably not harmful to the baby, it’s not smart to get LASIX while pregnant. This is mainly because hormonal alternations during pregnancy often throw off your eye prescription, causing temporary nearsightedness or astigmatism, which makes it more difficult to perform an effective surgery. Post-surgery, you’ll also require antibiotics and steroid drops, medications that are absorbed in the bloodstream and have not been tested on fetuses. It’s true that you will have to put most elective medical procedures on hold while expecting, but—as your little one demonstrates—good things come to those who wait!
