What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler used to restore fullness and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines in the face. Unlike some other fillers that are made with hyaluronic acid, Sculptra is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and formulated with poly-L-lactic acid that allows for the production of collagen and a tighter and toner mid-facial region. Plastic surgeon Dr. Manish Shah and the staff at Shah Aesthetic Surgery now offer Sculptra to the men and women of the Denver, CO area.
Sculptra injections are for candidates with healthy immune systems that want to restore facial volume without having surgical implants. Sculptra may be a good option for those who want to correct shallow to deep nasolabial fold (sometimes called laugh or smile lines) deficiencies and other facial wrinkles. It’s best to consult with Dr. Shah to assess your skin condition and go over treatment options.
Shah Aesthetic Surgery Reviews
My Muscle Wall Gave Way Giving my Abdomen an Unsightly Large Buldge - Denver, CO - I met Dr Shah in 2007 when he did a face lift for me. I was really happy with the results. When I found out no amount of diet and exercise would remedy the problem with my abdomen I contacted him. and even through I no longer live in Colorado, I knew he was the doctor I wanted to perform my surgery.I am a little over four weeks after surgery and I am thrilled with the results. I am 66 years old and healing well and now I have the tummy I have dreamed of having.Thank you Dr Shah I appreciate your skill and care!
I’m so happy I choose Dr. Shah to get my procedure done. All the staff is Super nice and helpful. Too bad he no longer does Breast augmentations.
Got a gynecomastia surgery last year. Completely life changing and extremely happy with the results. The team here does a great job explaining everything and making sure you're as comfortable as possible.
I honestly regret choosing this doctor for my rhinoplasty. I went to him in 2018 for my first rhinoplasty and I trusted that he could give me my desired results. A couple months of healing and my results showed that I had an inverted V deformity nose which means he cut too much of nasal bone down. I went back to see him and he told me that we can do a revision to fix it, add a graft to the middle and it would be fixed. Since I added that, my nose is now very droopy and I’m having severe breathing problems and cannot breath naturally like I used to. There is also a dent on my nose and it looks extremely crooked especially when I smile. Also if you are an experienced doctor, you would know that if you are slimming down the bridge of the nose, whatever part you didn’t make smaller will appear very large in my case, as with my tip drooping over. I’m still very unhappy/sad with my nose after two rhinoplasties with him and I payed for the initial surgery which was over 8k and for the revision I had to pay over 2k for anesthesia fees. I went back to him recently to talk about the issues I am having. He presented that I do a tip surgery that will put more graft in the tip of my nose and bring it up which he says is non invasive. I was quoted another 6.7k to fix the issue that he initially was unable to do in one surgery. I am now going to pay more money to be happy with the tip of my nose, and am so fearful that something could go wrong since this will now have to be my third time getting a rhinoplasty. I wish I could go back and chose a different doctor. I think doing your research and at least consulting with many doctors before you make your decision, and try to avoid having to do multiple surgeries to fix the previous one.
Really satisfied with my results! I was super skeptical about finding the right surgeon for my BBL revision but Dr Shah was really confident and he succeeded my goals. I also loved that he didn’t push me to spend more money then I had to. All of his staffing was super sweet and patient with me as well!

Our Injection Technique
Sculptra injections are administered in one of our comfortable procedure rooms. One of our trained physicians will sterilize, numb the skin with a local anesthetic or numbing gel, and mark the injection sites. The specially formulated filler is then injected into deep skin tissue at the marked sites. Typically, a patient requires a series of 3 – 4 Sculptra treatments at the Denver office of Shah Aesthetic Surgery over the period of a few months, but Dr. Shah will tailor the sessions for you.
What to Expect
After your Sculptra treatment, you may experience injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching, and sometimes lumps. These symptoms should resolve themselves naturally in about 3 – 5 days. You may be asked to apply cold packs to the swelling, apply a facial massage a few times a day to the treated area, and avoid sunlight and UV lamp exposure. Once the swelling disappears, the collagen stimulation process begins and facial change is noticeable. Results can be visible for up to two years.
