Lost volume happens during the natural aging process, especially in the face as the cheeks tend to become hollow and flat. Plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters uses Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid injectable dermal filler that allows for fuller and longer-lasting volume in the mid-face. In addition to increasing the volume of the mid-face, Sculptra can reduce the look of fine to deep wrinkles and lines, like the nasolabial folds (sometimes called laugh or smile lines) that go from the edges of the nose down to the outer corners of the lips. With a unique gel formula approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Sculptra promotes the natural collagen production in your body, so even after you stop getting injections, your complexion should be stronger and healthier compared to before the treatment. In addition to improving facial lines and wrinkles, Sculptra can also be used to add volume and a mild lift to the buttocks.

"Warning: long post I call my cancer diagnosis “the gift that keeps on giving”. When I was referred to Dr. Walters, I had gone through 8 surgeries and was experiencing a 4-way contraction on the right side as a result of radiation after reconstruction. This caused me to be in pain 24 hours a day. Dr. Walters gave me hope that I could live without that pain and he did a fat transfer from my stomach to make a new breast. The pain was gone. This past November I had the second phase of the surgery which was to give me symmetry, to reconstruct the nipples which were misshapen, and to transfer fat to give fullness where needed. The surgery was a success for me. I can look at myself in the mirror and I am okay with what I see now. I live two and a half hours from Dr. Walters’ offices. Dr. Walters and his staff were kind, responsive, and accommodating to my needs to say the least. My questions which were numerous were answered in a timely manner. During difficult times, Dr. Walters was able to see me quickly and he was willing to discuss options by phone. I am a happy patient and at every visit I was asked if I was happy with the results. I can say that I am very pleased and happy with my results and with the care I was given by Dr. Walters and all of his staff!"- D.B. / Google / May 29, 2019
Sculptra Aesthetic is great for anyone who wants to improve contour in their mid-face without implants and surgery. Candidates may have been born with hollow cheeks, whereas other patients have full cheeks that have deflated with age. Sculptra injections may also help to improve fine to severe facial wrinkles and lines, including marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and chin wrinkles. Since Sculptra's formula works to prompt the natural production of collagen in the skin, most Sculptra patients will notice an improvement in the appearance and health of their complexion.
Adding Sculptra to the buttocks has become a popular procedure known as a nonsurgical butt lift. This can be a good option if you only need a small amount of volume and lift in your buttocks. It can also be helpful to get a preview of the results you might get from butt lift surgery or a Brazilian butt lift (a fat transfer to the butt).
Following your consultation to develop your unique plan for treatment, you will receive your injections in one of our procedure rooms. Your injector might use a local anesthetic or numbing cream prior to sterilizing and marking the sites to be injected. As soon as you are prepared, Sculptra is injected down into the deeper skin layers at the chosen areas of the face or butt. For longer-lasting results, your injector will perform a series of four treatments that are each done at Walters Plastic Surgery around three weeks apart.
What to Expect
Following your appointment, you may experience mild or moderate swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection areas that should resolve on its own in several days. To encourage healing, you may apply a cold compress to the injected areas. You should limit UV exposure after your appointment and always use sunscreen. You may notice clear improvements immediately following their injections with final results seen after a few months when the increased collagen production improves the health of your skin. If Sculptra is performed in a series over 3 – 4 months, your results may be visible for as long as two years.
