Sculptra for Cheek Augmentation

February 27, 2008
Hello Dr Rivkin

I am wanting to fill out my face a little in a very subtle way. I would prefer to do this permanently with my own fat but am a little worried about how uncontrollable this process seems to be. Can you tell me:
How controlled it is possible to be with Sculptra so that you don't get a fat face or strange shapes?
Also, what happens after 2 years? If it's collagen that's built up, why doesn't it stay there?
Also, If you don't like the effect Is there a way of reversing sculptra once it's in, or do you just have to wait for it to dissipate?

Thank you

Curlicue


hi curlicue,
these are good questions.
i agree with your assessment of fat injections - not very reliable.
sculptra is a good product - results are natural and it lasts for a couple of years - you will like it, as long as the person injecting is experienced and doesn't give you lumps.
the trouble is that you have to do multiple sessions - 2 or 3, and it gets expensive.
i have also wondered why the collagen doesn't stay. i'm not sure. it could be that, once the active ingredient stimulating the collagen growth disappears, there is a decrease in the collagen.
there is no way of dissipating sculptra.
cheers,
