Sculptra Butt Lift Procedure Technique
Sculptra Aesthetic is one of Dr. Connors’ favorite injectable products and uses it to perform a liquid facelift. Sculptra helps to increase skin thickness and creates a more natural facial appearance for those with facial lipoatrophy. It is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic, biocompatible material that does not harm the body. It is also a favorite of celebrities, as well as those who have previously used shorter-term fillers. Sculptra is unique in that its effects can be long-lasting; they were shown in a clinical study to last for up to 2 years after the first treatment session. Results are natural-looking and appear gradually over a few weeks time.

If anyone is considering plastic surgery, Dr. Connors is a must, he will make you perfect!"- K.E. / Yelp / Aug 28, 2015
"Wonderful staff, amazing results, and overall great experience! This was my first time receiving Botox and lip filler. My wedding is coming up this fall and I wanted to enhance my features, but still look natural. Given it was my first time, I was very nervous going in. However, I had absolutely no reason to be! The receptionist at the front desk started my appointment off on the right foot and immediately put my mind at ease. She was extremely friendly, welcoming and made the check-in process a breeze. Jenny, the nurse practitioner administering the Botox and filler, was truly wonderful. She asked me what look I was going for and delivered exactly that! She also explained to me what to expect during and after the procedures so that there would be no surprises. Carey, the nurse who helped assist, was so kind and shared her own experiences with these procedures which also put my mind at ease. Not only was the experience great, but the results are amazing! I told Jenny that my biggest fear was having duck lips and that I just wanted to have slightly fuller lips to make my lipstick and smile look better for my wedding day. Jenny gave me exactly what I was looking for! I love my new lips! They look like my lips, but better! So natural and tasteful. Jenny also gave me Botox injections in my forehead and was very careful about the amount she used on me. She gave me what she refers to as "babytox" which is a smaller amount of Botox. And it is working wonders! The wrinkles on my forehead are disappearing before my eyes! Overall, wonderful experience! Extremely natural and gave me exactly what I was looking for. 10/10 recommend!"- C.P. / Google / Jun 25, 2020
"I was looking to get under eye fillers in the north Atlanta area. I found a practitioner near me at Dr John Connors Plastic Surgery Group of Atlanta, Avalon Location. I went in for a consult with Jenny Azar, NP-C, BSN. She has been performing plastics since 2011 and fillers since 2015. She made me feel comforted at the facility and confident that I could ask her anything. Since I had already done some research, she gave me some very insightful perspectives on making the most of any skincare and facial treatment I choose. Based on my facial structure and hollows in my face, we opted for two different types of Restalyne hyaluronic fillers, for the cheeks as well as the under eyes. The procedure took about one hour, from numbing to injections and clean up. The overall environment at John Connors Surgery Center was very clean, modern and comforting. Jenny did a great job from explaining why she chooses Restalyne, to the procedure and post procedure care and what I should expect for recovery and future needs. For my first time getting fillers, at age 27, it was a great experience and Jenny did a great job! I highly recommend scheduling your appointment here and feel free to contact them with any questions or concerns. The staff was very welcoming, educational and fun! And of course followed proper PPE procedures!"- C.W. / Yelp / Jun 10, 2020

Sculptra Butt Lift Ideal Candidates
Sculptra is administered during an in-office appointment that typically takes about 30 minutes. The injection treatment, including the dosage and injection location, is tailored during the procedure to fulfill the patient’s specific needs. The injection is given through a syringe to localized areas on the face. Patients will feel a small prick as the needle inserts through the skin, but any pain or discomfort can be controlled with a topical anesthetic or numbing injection if desired. For the greatest results, the average patient is recommended to have 2-3 injections over a few months.
What To Expect with Sculptra®
Immediately following a Sculptra injection, there will be some mild swelling and redness at the injection site. This will subside a few hours after the procedure. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately, but exercise should be avoided for a few hours. After the injection, an easy after care procedure helps to ensure lasting effects. Results following Sculptra will become apparent gradually during the weeks after the procedure. The result is that the surface of the skin will appear younger and restored.

What to Expect with Sculptra Butt Lift
Is it Safe?
Sculptra is approved by the FDA and has a long history of safety worldwide since 1999. Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid that the human body naturally produces and has been used for general sutures for many years. Reported side effects include subtle pain, bruising, swelling or redness, bruising, and a few others. Bumps have sometimes occurred as noticeable when applying pressure to the injected area. Please consult our team if any of these side effects concern you.
Botox or Filler?
Sculptra is the only filler that produces long-term gradual results. Injectable fillers help to decrease wrinkles by adding volume to certain facial structures, which creates a smooth result on the surface of the skin. BOTOX, which temporarily freezes the underlying muscle, may offer a result that looks similar, but the approach is different. A skilled practitioner will be able to determine which procedure would garner the best results.
Individuals who wish to soften and decrease facial lines and wrinkles gradually may be candidates for Sculptra. The most common age to receive Sculptra® injections is between ages 30-55, however it is also common for patients who are younger and older than this range to receive injections.
Sculptra is different from other fillers because the results usually last up to 2 years. Sculptra is the only long lasting filler to improving the shape and look of the face, and the results appear gradually without a dramatic immediate change.
Where Do I Get Injected?
Sculptra is injected directly into the face, and helps restore chin wrinkles, lines surrounding the mouth, and the deep lines between the nose and mouth.
