Can I Get Sculptra If I Have Cheek, Jaw Angle And Chin Implants?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am planning to get Sculpra filler (I think at cheek area and temples). Do my cheek, jaw, and chin implants make Sculptra riskier? Do you think that I would be substantially more likely to have some sort of abnormal growth or other unusual response? Thank you for any thoughts you have.

A: Good to hear from you. You can certainly have Sculptra injections for the cheeks and temples. For the injections near the cheeks I would just let the injector know there are cheek implants deep down at the bone level. For Sculptra injections they are usually placed more superficial than other types of injection materials. Just because you have implants will not make the Sculptra material (PLLA crystals) act in any way abnormally.

Let me know if you have any further questions,
