What Is Sculptra?
Loss of volume occurs during the natural aging process, especially in the mid-face, as the cheeks become flat and hollow. Our office offers Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid dermal filler that allows for longer-lasting and deeper volume replacement in the cheeks. In addition to restoring the fullness of the cheeks, Sculptra can reduce the appearance of shallow to deep lines and wrinkles, like the nasolabial folds (sometimes called smile or laugh lines) that go from the sides of the nose down to the corners of the lips. With its unique formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra helps to increase the natural production of collagen in your body so even after you stop getting treatments, your complexion will still be healthier and stronger compared to before Sculptra injections. Schedule an appointment for a consultation at The Plastics Clinic in South Jordan, UT to hear about the benefits of this injectable treatment.
What to Expect From Sculptra
After your appointment, you may have mild or moderate redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the sites of injections that should heal on their own in 3 – 5 days. To speed healing, you can apply a cold compress to the injected areas. You should limit UV exposure after your appointment and always use sun protection. Most patients will see clear improvements immediately following their injections with complete results seen after 3 – 5 months, as the increased collagen production strengthens the complexion. When performed in a series over 3 – 4 months, your results can be visible for as long as two years.
The Plastics Clinic Reviews
Best surgeon! Best staff! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
First thing I want to share is if your end goal is to have a tummy tuck- don’t touch your body until that time! Long story short, prior to seeing Dr. Garlick I had laser liposuction aka smart lipo. I followed all of the after care but still had severe scar tissue which made my tummy tuck feasible but different. I consulted with 4 other plastic surgeons before seeing Dr. Garlick and I always felt like they were telling my what I wanted to hear vs being honest, up front and giving me realistic expectations. I left all 4 feeling kind of off- I knew Dr. Garlick’s books were filling up but I had a tug to call to get one more consult ( 5 should be enough, right?) in the mean time I had actually paid (refundable fortunately) and scheduled a surgery date with another surgeon. My plan was if I heard the same the thing I would continue with this other surgeon. Call it divine intervention or luck I got a call that Dr. G had a consult cancellation- it was almost 3 months prior to my scheduled consult. The consult was exactly what I was looking for, compassionate, inquisitive, understanding and realistic. I am a mom of two, I like(d) my body I just wanted to enhance it. He understood that and also explained what was going to need to happen in a way that made sense. He also didn’t make me feel bad or dumb for having my prior procedure (you don’t know what you don’t know), that was huge for me. I was able to snag one of his last available dates for the year, I’m writing this almost a week post op and when I didn’t think it couldn’t get better it really did, one my nurses Hope, she was so straightforward and funny. I loved her dryness, honesty, and let’s get this done attitude. Dr. Garlick’s bedside manner is like none I have ever experienced. Not only is he personable, everything we talked about in my consult is exactly the same thing we went over before I headed into the OR- he never wavered. He talked my husband through aftercare gave dinner spot recommendations. He called to check on both of us after my surgery and has answered my text messages throughout this first week of recovery, which has been huge because I live out of state. He has treated me like I am his only patient this week-he embodies the saying “They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.”Plastic surgery is personal, it’s emotional and can be exhausting, I am thankful that I was able to have this experience with Dr. Garlick and his team and I’m looking forward to seeing the results.
I’m so glad I did my research and went with Dr. Garlick for my breast lift & augmentation. My results were far better than I could have ever imagined. I received excellent symmetry, a healthy recovery and zero complications. Dr. Garlick has a great bedside manner and was always a quick call or message away to answer all my questions no matter the time. If you value your results and want the very best I highly recommend getting on his consultation list. He’s most definitely worth the wait!
I came to Dr. Garlick for a mommy makeover. (Breast aug, tummy tuck and lipo in legs and flanks). On my consult, I had my times wrong and arrived 30 mins late. Everyone was so kind and I still got to see him that day. He has been amazing at answering all my questions and my results are simply amazing. I would definitely recommend this doctor.
