Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Sean Kelishadi, offers Sculptra injections to restore volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid dermal filler, which is a synthetic but biodegradable substance that is naturally absorbed by the body. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used for many years and is the main substance that makes up dissolvable stitches. As an FDA-approved dermal filler, Sculptra not only restores volume loss but also helps to stimulate the body's natural production of collagen. The body relies on collagen to provide structure, strength, and elasticity to our skin and other tissues in our bodies. SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA offers a variety of dermal fillers to suit your aesthetic needs and we are happy to discuss if Sculptra is ideal for you.
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband. (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!"- J.V. / Yelp / Jul 27, 2017
"The best of the best... I wish there were more stars to add to his review, but if the five stars describe the best, then that would be Dr. Kelishadi. I have no words to describe the amazing job he's doing with every case. He is very patient, meticulous and never gives up until the smallest detail is taken care of. Thank you Dr Kelishadi for everything"- S.A. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2018
"There are not words to truly express how much I admire and trust Dr. Kelishadi. He is,without a doubt one in a million. He is compassionate, honest, professional and a perfectionist in his profession.. Last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer and with the help of my oncologist surgeon ( Dr. Kachikwu ) and Dr. Kelishadi I made the decision to have a mastectomy surgery and reconstruction surgery on the same day. The surgery went well, the tumor was entirely removed and I didn't need chemo or radiation. Dr. Kelishadi helped me to overcome the fear of having a mastectomy. He promised me he was going to treat me like he would a family member and he really did. I had a fast recovery and went back to work 6 weeks after my surgery. I feel blessed that god gave a second chance and the opportunity to met Dr.Kelishadi during my cancer journey. The results of my new breast are amazing! They are so natural looking that I don't even think of cancer anymore. I wish breast cancer on no one yet should you find yourself in need of a plastic surgeon, I pray that you will be able to see Dr. Kelishadi, he is amazing! And, his staff is very friendly and professional too. :)"- V.F. / Yelp / Apr 17, 2018

"For anyone that is looking to do something for themselves, no matter what the reason is, I would recommend SSK Plastic Surgery to anyone and everyone. I have been waiting to have cosmetic surgery for 5 years after having my 3rd child, and went to multiple offices and spoke to 4 other surgeons prior to meeting Dr. Kelishadi. Once I met with him, I felt comfortable and trusted him with my procedure. Dr. Kelishadi was thorough, knowledgable and patiently answered all of my questions. I had a tummy tuck, breast lift and augmentation, and liposuction of the back and love handle areas with a fat transfer into my butt/hips. It was a 7.5 hour procedure that ended up being a little over 8 hours. His staff was extremely helpful with all of the paperwork and financing leading up to the day of surgery, and the hospital staff that Dr. K is contracted with was warm and caring. I was nervous about the procedure and my recovery, and Dr. Kelishadi personally made phone calls (even on Christmas Day because my surgery was just a few days before) to check in with me. I was able to reach him directly with any questions or concerns- the care and level of service far exceeds any I have ever had in the medical field.I am now a little over 3 months post-op and I feel amazing and am so happy with my results. SSK made this experience as easy as it could possibly be."- K.M. / Yelp / Mar 24, 2018
Sculptra is an ideal treatment for you if you have moderate to severe smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, or volume loss. It is also a great treatment for those who simply desire younger looking skin. Ideal candidates should be in overall good health, have a strong immune system, and not have any skin infections. If you are currently on any prescription drugs or taking anti-inflammatory medication, consult with your doctor prior to receiving Sculptra treatments.
Since Sculptra is a minimally invasive procedure, patients will be able to undergo treatment and return home all in the same day. During the procedure, the target area will be cleansed and injection sites will be carefully marked. Sculptra will then be injected in the desired location and massaged for even distribution. A topical anesthetic can be applied to ease your discomfort, but typically there is minimal pain. However, some patients may require several treatments to obtain the results they desire. Treatments are usually spaced 2 weeks apart.
What To Expect
Redness, swelling, tenderness, and minor bruising may occur near or around the injection site. This is very common but should subside within 5 – 7 days. If the symptoms persist, consult with your doctor. Patients may also use a cold compress to ease discomfort. Optimal results will be visible with 4 – 6 weeks and are known to last up to 2 years. Long-lasting results is one of the biggest advantaged Sculptra over other dermal fillers.
Plan Your Procedure
Sculptra doesn't just correct volume loss, but increases the overall health of the skin by stimulating the body's natural collagen production. This improves the thickness of the skin and structure, which leads to a younger appearance. Because of its long-lasting results, Sculptra has earned the nickname "liquid facelift." If you want to improve the look of your skin but aren't ready for a surgical facelift, Sculptra can be a great option for you.
