What is Sculptra?
Volume loss can start to naturally occur during the aging process, especially in the middle of the face. This can make your cheeks look flat and hollow. To treat this issue, Dr. Michelle Eagan uses Sculptra Aesthetic injectables. Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid dermal filler that adds long-lasting volume in the apples of the cheeks. In addition to enhancing your cheeks, Sculptra decreases the appearance of fine to deep lines and wrinkles, including laugh or smile lines. Sculptra is an FDA-approved dermal filler, which helps stimulate the production of collagen. So even after you stop receiving Sculptra treatments, your complexion should still look healthier than before. Please schedule an appointment at New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana to learn more about the benefits of Sculptra.
"Dr Eagan did my breast aug in March 2020. I searched for months before selecting a doctor and the reason I chose her is because her personality is outstanding!! She is by far the kindest doctor I have ever met!!! She is not a doctor that will put too much on your body if your body can not handle it. I told her what I wanted and she went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with my results! I am 4 months post op and I swear I fall in love with my procedure results all over again every single day! We are already discussing lip injections because she is just absolutely fantastic! Always available when I needed her and every appointment she has always greeted me as a friend and made sure I had a great appointment!! Wish I could give more stars to her!! Make sure to check her out because you will NOT regret it"- S.S. / Google / Jul 23, 2020
"Honestly this has been a difficult process both physically & emotionally but Dr. Eagan has been incredibly supportive. She is extremely caring, informative and most importantly she does beautiful work. It’s all been worth it. I love the results of my mastopexy. I highly recommend her & wouldn’t hesitate to go back to her for any future procedures."- V.S. / Yelp / Aug 06, 2021
"I first went to Dr. Eagon for under eye filler and a consultation for a breast augmentation and lift. The moment I meet Dr. Eagon she was the sweetest plastic surgeon I have ever meet. Previously I went to many plastic surgeons for consults and their personalities are not comparable to Dr. Eagon. After the filler was placed and my consultation was complete I knew she was the one! She was extremely thorough in the consultation and made me feel so comfortable. After the consultation I had my preop appointment and being a mom, I had to bring my kids. She was even more thorough at that appointment with a 3 year old present. She wasn’t even phased by his disruption and was so kind to my kids. Her receptionist was amazing through the entire process, as well. Now 2 weeks post op I love my results. I loved my results 2 days post surgery. Did I mention she called me the night I had surgery to call and check on me! That’s impressive. If your looking for a plastic surgeon I can’t recommend her enough. I encounter many physicians on a daily basis at work and I can tell you she is one of the most caring doctors I have ever met, and her work is amazing!"- K.E. / Google / Jul 29, 2021
"Michelle's expertise made the procedure a lot less painful than expected. I was definitely relieved. At every level, start to finish, she worked with me. It goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway, SHE'S THE BEST!"- A.C. / Google / Mar 24, 2021
"I had a few friends recommend Dr. Eagan to me. When I tell you I woke up this morning, looked in the mirror and CRIED I mean it. I feel like a totally new person. I feel HOT and like I can take on the world. I got in my car, put on some music rolled down my windows and just sang which is so unlike me but how much better I feel about myself has changed everything. She was so sweet and gentle. I was really nervous walking in and she explained everything so patiently. I won’t be going to anyone else ever. I love love love my new lips and my new attitude."- K.B. / Google / Mar 19, 2021
Is Sculptra Right For You?
Sculptra works well for patients who want to improve the contour of their mid-face without surgery. Thin or hollow-looking cheeks can happen for a variety of reasons, including aging or genetics. Sculptra injections can also fill in mild to severe facial wrinkles and lines, like marionette lines, smile lines, and Crow's feet. Because Sculptra's formula encourages the production of collagen, many patients notice a visible improvement in the overall health and appearance of their complexion.
Our Injection Technique
After developing your custom treatment plan, we will perform your Sculptra injections in one of our minor procedure rooms. Normally, we can perform these treatments on the same day as your consultation. At the beginning of your procedure, patients receive numbing cream or local anesthetic, and we mark the injection sites. After prepping your skin, Dr. Eagan will inject the dermal filler into the deeper layers of your skin. For longer-lasting results, we recommend a series of four treatments scheduled three weeks apart.
What to Expect
Following your Sculptra treatment, you may experience mild or moderate redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising near the treatment sites. These symptoms should subside on their own in a few days. To encourage healing, you can apply cold packs to the treatment areas. After your appointment, you should avoid excess UV exposure and use sun protection. Most patients will notice visible improvements immediately after their Sculptra treatment. Generally, it takes a few months to see the final results because your body needs time to start producing more collagen. When performed as a series of injections over 3 – 4 months, a patient's results may last for around two years.
How much does Sculptra cost?
Sculptra treatments can range in price, and it depends on how much you need to achieve your goals. You may need multiple injections for optimal results. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your goals and develop a treatment plan that aligns with your specific budget.
