Lipo- sculptra
Jan 9, 2007

I recently read from internet about Sculptra and Bio-Alcamid breakthrough. Please advise. Is it only for the use of Facial Lipo? or will it also be used for other parts of the body eg butts.

Response from Dr. Henry

To my knowledge the bulk of experience with those injection treatments for fat loss (lipoatrophy) have been in the face. The volume of the face is much smaller than the buttocks so it is more amendable to observing results after injection of a reasonable amount of the product. If any reader has any experience or knowledge about use of those products for use other than the face please post! KH
