Is high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) safe when breastfeeding?
HIFU treatment is definitely safe during breastfeeding. As the treatment is ultrasound-based and directed purely at the skin, there is absolutely no concern of any risk to your child via breast milk transmission.
This applies to other aesthetic laser procedures as well.
Potential risks, however, exist with some oral medication and injections, so exercise caution for such treatments and discuss fully with your preferred aesthetic doctor.
Hope this helps!
High-intensity focused ultrasound is a novel non-invasive technology used for the treatment of tumours in many parts of our body, ie uterine, breast, kidney, liver and prostate. HIFU is safe to be used on the body or the face for nursing mothers. Just inform the doctor before any treatment that you are breast feeding. Even then, most pain killer medications are fine to be consumed during breast feeding.
