Why Sculptra is Not SAFE.... - Winter Park, FL

I initially was pleased with the results, and used an experienced plastic surgeon. It was even injected near the eyes for hollows, and I never had lumps. HOWEVER, I also used it around the mouth to chin area for marionette lines. The first 3 to 4 injections went smoothly, and it was a very gradual process. Then, after going in for a 'touch up', the bottom half of my face just continued to grow out of control. It is very bottom heavy, and when I smile, my face looks stuffed, similar to a chipmunk. I was assured it would go down but it has been THREE YEARS! I tried kenalog and 5 FU injections, which left dents in my face, as it starts to eat your own collagen. I ended up have to use Juvederm to fill in the dents. It is very UNPREDICTABLE, and the vicious cycle I described above will leave you miserable every time you look in the mirror. There are plenty of other fillers to choose from, and you never know if you will be one of the 'unlucky' ones....

Thank you for sharing your experience. I too tried to share what happened to me but those happy with the product or using the product kept telling me it was some how my fault. That my body was unusual or my board certified plastic surgeon must have been a quack every possible reason why it must be something I did wrong. I think that all of those satisfied sculptra people are at risk. The doctors and other Sanofi PR people and sale reps have all played Russian Roulette with our faces and our health. Wa wa wa. we lost.
The only pain is the emotional side of it all. We try to make ourselves look better, but end up destroying our looks altogether. If I could only turn back the hands of time....

Well, emotional pain is often the very worst kind. :-/

Try to keep in mind you made the best decision you could at the time instead of focusing on woulda shoulda's. All you can do now is move forward the best you can.

Please lean on us for support and keep us posted on how you are doing.
