Would you like a long lasting facial filler to add volume back into your facial features? Our Pittsburgh, PA double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Chiu, may recommend a dermal filler called Sculptra to you during a private consultation at our office at Today's Cosmetic Surgery. With Sculptra, the poly-L-lactic acid-based formula can plump your smile lines (nasolabial folds), marionette lines, and deep chin wrinkles to help you look younger and more refreshed. The number of Sculptra injections at your initial appointment and the number of follow-up treatment sessions may vary and can be determined by Dr. Chiu. If smooth, younger-looking skin is your goal, we would like to help you find the right injectable or a combination of treatments to rejuvenate your skin for the better. Call and schedule a consultation today.
Sculptra treatments are best for any candidate desiring longer-term skin rejuvenation, who have the following conditions or symptoms:
- Wrinkles and deep facial lines due to aging or sun damage
- Between 30 – 65 years old
- Lack of volume under the skin
- Overall good health
"I’ve had nothing but great experiences at Today’s Cosmetic Surgey. Dr. Chiu and Sara are professional, compassionate, and experts at what they do. I have been getting Juvederm injections in my lips there for almost 2 years. My lips ALWAYS look amazing, natural, and just the right amount of full. I was very nervous when I went in for my first time because there are so many horror stories of lip injections. However, my lips have exceeded my expectations every time and Dr. Chiu is truly an artist. I would recommend him to anyone!"- C.P. / Google / Nov 19, 2017
"I Am Super Happy with This Practice. - I have seen Dr. Chiu for several years and have had both botox and fillers. I had been contemplating a lower lift for some time but held off; first because of the expense and also I thought it might look like I had surgery. I finally talked myself into the surgery and it was well worth the expense. I'm extremely happy with the results; I know he took at least ten years off of my face and neck without any visible signs. I have total confidence in Dr. Chiu and was very glad a friend recommended him. Sara is very accomodating and makes you feel so welcome."- V / RealSelf / May 17, 2019

"BLUF: Dr. Chiu is a brilliant surgeon. If you want natural-looking results, he is your doctor! When I was considering rhinoplasty seriously a couple of years ago it took me a while to find a surgeon I could trust and had the right credentials. I went to three surgeons, including Dr. Chiu, and found him to be the best fit. Dr. Chiu is incredibly realistic when it comes to bringing harmony to the face and took the time to explain what would work the best not only aesthetically but also for my overall health. For rhinoplasty, you want to look good but still be able to breathe normally. Rhinoplasty is his speciality and after having this procedure done by Dr. Chiu I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking this procedure. He considered my total facial structure in his renderings to give me an idea what my new nose would look like. Our goal was to take the focus away from my nose; I no longer wanted that feature to be where everyone’s eyes were drawn. Dr. Chiu does his surgeries at Upper St. Clair hospital and only has the best surgical staff working with him. I was well taken care of and was in surgery for approximately four hours. Following surgery, I was released to go home to recover. I was expecting some discomfort the first night; however, my discomfort was not from any pain but from having to sleep upright. I prescribed some pain medication but I never needed it. I suffered from ZERO bruising! Most post-op photos show significant bruising from rhinoplasty, but I did not have a single one. I was swollen, puffy, and a tad stiff for a while following the procedure but experiencing no pain. I was able to return to work less than 7 days following the procedure and very few people were able to tell I had something done due to lack of bruising. It took about one year for the results of the surgery to settle in, and Dr. Chiu did emphasize that would indeed be the case. It has been 13 months at the time of this post, and I couldn’t be happier with my new nose! It fits the rest of my face, I have full functionality (no issues breathing), and you cannot see the small incision at all. Dr. Chiu is incredibly thorough and highly skilled. What I respect most about him and his practice, though, is that he gives you realistic expectations and explains the why/how to his methods. If you are seeking natural and harmonizing results for your looks, Dr. Chiu should absolutely be at the top of your list! I also want to point out that Sara is wonderful! She makes sure you have every piece of information you could possibly need from scheduling, financing, and answers all questions promptly. I am so glad to have chosen to trust Dr. Chiu and Sara with my face! I will be a lifelong customer as I continue through life and the aging process."- E.C. / Google / Mar 21, 2021

What to Expect
Patients will receive their Sculptra injection onsite in our office by Dr. Chiu. The treatment is an outpatient procedure that typically only takes between 30 - 45 minutes. Discomfort is minimal, but patients can receive a numbing cream prior to the injection if needed. Patients can safely return to their normal activities right after the injection and should expect minor redness or swelling to occur for a short period of time following the treatment.
Patients can expect to see noticeable results usually within a few months after receiving their Sculptra injection. However, it may take more than one treatment to reach the full, desired results. Sculptra is one of the longest lasting fillers on the market, with visible results for up to 2 years after the treatment. Multiple treatment sessions are expected, and gradual improvement is usually seen.
