Many women long to have that youthful look but may not be quite ready for a facelift. When you look at pictures of yourself ten or fifteen years ago, you'll probably notice that your face has lost some of its volume. As we age, our bodies' production of collagen – the protein responsible for keeping skin looking young and smooth – decreases. Sculptra® Aesthetic is not a wrinkle filler like Juvederm or Radiesse. It is a facial injectable made from polylactic acid that gradually stimulates the production of collagen thereby restoring volume and creating a fuller, lifted appearance. On average, a series of two to three Sculptra treatments are required over a period of a few months but can vary from patient to patient. The results are subtle and can last up to two years. If you'd like more information about Sculptra, we invite you to contact our office.

ABOUT PLASTIC SURGERY

Plastic surgery is a specialty that can be divided into two groups: cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery. Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape normal body structures and improve a person’s appearance. These procedures may not be considered medically necessary, but are performed, instead, to increase a person’s confidence and self-esteem. Liposuction, breast augmentation and tummy tucks are some of the most popular types of cosmetic surgery.

Reconstructive surgery involves those procedures performed to correct abnormal body structures caused by birth defects, trauma, burns, infection or disease. These types of reconstructive surgery include breast reduction, breast reconstruction and treatment of skin cancers. Reconstructive surgery is usually covered by health insurance.
