Volume loss occurs naturally during the aging process, particularly in the mid-face as the cheeks become flat and hollow. Plastic surgeon Dr. S. Benjamin Albright offers Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid-based dermal filler that allows for deeper and longer-lasting volume replacement in the cheeks. In addition to improving the contour of the cheeks, Sculptra can decrease the appearance of shallow to deep lines and wrinkles throughout the face, including the nasolabial folds (also known as smile or laugh lines) that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. With its unique formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra promotes the natural production of collagen in your body, so even if you stop treatments, your skin will still be healthier compared to before Sculptra injections. Schedule a consultation at Albright Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX to learn more about the benefits of Sculptra dermal filler.

Anyone else out there that has had breast cancer and needing a great reconstruction surgeon, I would definitely recommend you to go and see Dr. Steven Albright."- C. / Google / Jan 18, 2021
"From my first consultation to my follow up and post-surgical appointments, Dr. Albright and his staff couldn't have been more helpful in making sure my all of my questions and concerns were addressed. All the steps involved in the surgery and after the surgery were explained step by step and all questions were answered clearly and honestly. I knew exactly what to expect after my breast surgery and the follow up care was exceptional! I am now over 1 year out from my surgery and I love the way my breasts look and I feel less pain in my shoulders and back. I am more confident in my appearance now more than ever before. I wish I had done this surgery sooner. I completely trust Dr. Albright and now see him for all my aesthetic needs including Botox, Dysport and Fillers. He always makes me look natural and refreshed vs. “overdone”. I have referred several people in Houston to Dr. Albright for plastic surgery and they love him as much as I do!"- T.S. / Google / Jan 08, 2021
Sculptra is best for patients who want to add volume in their cheeks without surgery. Some patients may have naturally flat cheeks, while others experience age-related volume loss. Sculptra can also be used to fill shallow to deep facial lines and wrinkles, like marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and chin wrinkles. Since Sculptra helps to increase the body's natural production of collagen, many patients will have a visible improvement in the overall health and appearance of their skin.
What to expect
After your consultation to create your personal treatment plan, you will receive your Sculptra injections in one of our private procedure rooms. The injector may apply a numbing cream or local anesthetic before cleansing and marking the injection sites. Once you are ready, the filler will be injected into the deeper layers of the skin at the selected areas using a blunt-tip microcannula for accuracy and minimal discomfort. For best results, Dr. S. Benjamin Albright recommends a series of four Sculptra injections, each scheduled about three weeks apart.
After your Sculptra treatment, you may have mild to moderate redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising at the injection site that should subside naturally in a few days. For faster healing, you can apply cold packs to the injection sites and massage your face. You should avoid UV exposure as much as possible after your treatment and use sun protection. Most patients will see visible improvements immediately after their injections with full results appearing after several months as the natural production of collagen strengthens the skin. When performed as a series of injections over the course of 3 – 4 months, results can last up to two years.
