Will the granuloma after sculpture go away? Is it dangerous. Can it become cancer?
Doctor Answers 6
Nodules are an unwanted complication from injecting with Sculptra but thankfully there are certain protocols used to eliminate the nodules if they do appear. It is important to seek out a physician with plenty of experience injecting Sculptra to avoid complications such as nodule formation. I recommend making an appointment with the practitioner who injected you and express your concerns. They should help you dissolve this nodule.
Granuloma after Sculptra
Sorry to hear you are unsettled about this area. Nodules after Sculptra are a known phenomenon. They will resolve with time. If the area continues to be a nuisance at this stage an attempt to dissolve can be made with an Sterile Water injection or a steroid injection.

Sculptra and Lumps
Nodules and lumps have been reported from Scilptra. It is more uncommon these days as the product is diluted more now for injections. These modules are not dangerous and eventually subside. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
