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.

"BBL & lipo: Dr Walters was very kind af professional - Ever since I was a teenager I could never properly pants, my upper body Is like a medium lower body more an xl. I used to cry in front of my closet feeling fat and upset. So now at the age 28 after so many years of not feeling comfy in shorts dresses and skirts, I've finally made the decision to pursue lipo and while at it transfer some fat to my upper buttocks. My surgery happened 2 days ago and it's honestly a tough recovery so far. I did my surgery in New Orleans which is where I live. I realized going abroad and thinking I'd save money wasn't true. I got to go home the same day in my comfortable space with the people I love taking care of me. So far I'm pretty swollen so I know it will take a while before seeing permanent results. Dr Walters was very kind af professional, very quick in response over text for the few additional questions I had. The nurses were sweet, on the way home, we got hit by a car, thank god my husband and I are both safe. But it was traumatizing having to deal with that while still being gone on anesthesia. The first night I woke up to pee like 5 times and I could make it to the bathroom alone. I had to vomit each time I would move around even with the nausea pills and the patch behind my ear. But today I got to shower and take off my pads. I slept a lot and tried to eat a bit more. Hopefully each day will be a bit better! The pictures in red outfit are my before pictures."- N. / RealSelf / Dec 06, 2019

"I am extremely pleased with my experience. Dr. Walters is professional, talented, and honest. All of the staff members I encountered in the office were also very kind. I went to Dr. Walters for a breast augmentation and couldn’t be happier with my result. I highly recommend choosing him if you’re interested in this procedure. His passion to help his patients glow with confidence and his drive for perfection shows in his work."- C.Z. / Google / Oct 12, 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.
