Fillers

More and more pa­tients are re­quest­ing in­jectable illers for a 24/7 nipped­out look. But the down­sides in­clude in­fec­tion and al­ler­gic re­ac­tions, so make sure you see a med­i­cal doc­tor or a quali ied plas­tic sur­geon.

Stick­ers

Down to try glit­tery pasties like Mi­ley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj? Go for it – just keep in mind that if the ad­he­sive is left on for too long, it can cause an al­ler­gic re­ac­tion that looks like a red, scaly rash.

Pierc­ings

Many pierc­ings get in­fected, and scar tis­sue may in­ter­rupt a few of the ducts in­volved in breast-feed­ing. If you’re set on bling, twist the rings reg­u­larly and use an­tibi­otic oint­ment as the tis­sue heals.
