Yes agree with Dr Klein. But very very rare to see a sculptra "overgrowth"! Are you sure you had this product injected and not something else? (more)

Yes, Dr. Blinski, I too have Sculptra overgrowth. Why are these doctors defending Sculptra? It must be a big money maker. I am 32 months post with only 2 vials. It has ruined my life. Sculptra is a synthetic polyester that the body has a hard time ridding of. It may dissolve in stitches, but the fact is the stitches are only a small percentage of the amout injected under the skin. Also, oxygen can break it down at a faster rate, not when it's buried under the skin causing inflammation. Horrible product. Don't take my word for it, go to
RealSelf, every month new horror stories are appearing about this stuff.

Yes it was definitely sculptra that I had injected. The placement is off and my face looks puffy. I have gone to several dermatologists in my area and no one is experienced with sculptra correction using KFu and kenalog.
Could you recommend a Dr. that has experience with this? I am willing to travel to treat this.

Thanks
