Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery now offers Sculptra, a new treatment method for addressing the underlying cause of facial aging.
Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen—the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cells and tissue—for results that can last up to two years.
In layman’s terms, that simply means that Sculptra helps restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles.
Sculptra is administered through injections over multiple sessions. The specific number of required sessions will vary from patient to patient.
Sculptra works with your body within the deep dermis to:
As the Sculptra PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds.
Unlike other treatment methods, such as fillers and creams, or even cosmetic surgery, Sculptra addresses the underlying source of facial aging. Rather than mask the visible signs of wrinkly skin, Sculptra eliminates wrinkly skin from its very foundations!
Ditch the chaotic and unsettling environment of traditional medical facilities, and come experience the Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery difference. Call us today to schedule an appointment and see if you are a candidate for Sculptra!
Unlike other facial aging treatment options, Sculptra is known for being slow and steady. Due to the fact that it does not simply mask the symptoms of aging, but rather restructures the composition of your skin to address the very root of the problem, results are slower than other methods, but they last significantly longer!
Sculptra is FDA approved and has been in use all over the world for over 23 years. It contains a synthetic material that is both biocompatible and biodegradable, and commonly found in dissolvable stitches. In other words, this synthetic material is slowly and naturally absorbed by the human body over time. It is completely safe to use and unless you suffer from any specific allergies.
Invasive anti-aging procedures require patients to be in optimal health. On the contrary, Sculptra can be easily and safely administered even in patients who suffer from chronic medical conditions. A proper evaluation is necessary in order to determine eligibility, but it is safe to use in the vast majority of cases.

Sculptra is administered through direct injections over the course of multiple sessions. The cost of these injections varies, as does their total number.
Nonetheless, Sculptra is significantly more affordable than invasive, temporary anti-aging procedures!
And the best part? It treats the underlying cause of aging rather than mask its symptoms.

The answer depends on multiple factors, including the specific combination of procedures, your recovery rates, your age and health status, and your behaviors or habits. More invasive surgeries typically require recovery time ranging between 6 and 12 weeks to 6 months, and surgeries to the same area of your body will also generally require recovery time between procedures.
However, if you are in good health and the combination of procedures in question will be performed on different parts of your body and are not especially invasive, a combination of procedures could potentially be approved together on a case-by-case basis. It is imperative that the combination of procedures does not compromise your healing, and your attention to prescribed pre-operation and recovery habits also plays a significant role. Schedule a consultation for an assessment and guidance regarding the procedures you are considering.
While aging affects us all, there are steps we can take to put forth a more vibrant appearance. We seek to perform subtle adjustments to address imperfections and the wear of time while retaining your natural look. While you should notice an improvement, the glaring changes or distortions in appearance you are concerned about and may have seen from other surgeons’ work do not meet the standard of quality plastic and cosmetic surgery we perform in our office.

For patients with Breast Implant Illness (BII), which can include allergy, auto-immune, and thyroid hormone issues, this has been an emerging topic with significant press coverage in recent years. Although numerous medical professionals have demonstrated varying responses to these women’s concerns, we believe in addressing these women’s experiences and symptoms. In response to this phenomenon, we have also chosen not to perform new breast implant surgeries. We perform Total Capsulectomy on patients with breast implants, which involves the removal of both the saline or silicone implant and the capsule around it.
Removal of the implants and surrounding scar tissue has been shown to improve women’s health concerning these symptoms. While some women choose no further procedure following Breast Explant Surgery, some patients elect to have a Mastopexy procedure that involves reshaping the breast tissue for a pleasant cosmetic breast appearance. We welcome your specific questions regarding these procedures and their anticipated effects for your situation. See our Breast Implant Explantation (Total Capsulectomy) page for more detailed information, including before-and-after photo examples.
We only utilize injectables and safe procedures for our patients, though any procedure involves some degree of risk. Proper performance and the surgeon's skills and experience performing the procedure are vital factors affecting patients’ safety. At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, our surgeon is Board-Certified, with over 30 years of experience. We enforce a high standard to maintain safety for our clients and competitors. See our Injectable Procedures Overview for a list of injectable procedures and more information on each.
