I love full, high cheeks. I naturally have prominent cheeks, but I am always in the mood for more. I had 1.3 cc of Radiesse to both cheeks on January 2010 by Dr. Jonathan Hoeing in Beverly Hills, California. I loved the result and there was no palpable lumping at all. I had only slight swelling, swelling that I appreciated and was sad to see dissipate. As I said, really love big cheeks and full lips, so this area is one of those where my doctor knows best. I get a case of cheek or lip greed every now and then, and my doctor keeps me in check.
Unfortunately, my first Radiesse experience wasn’t this successful. I first had Radiesse® injected in 2004, although back then it was known as Radiance FN® and it was into my lips. I had heard so much about the product and felt at the time that it would be a good option. I was told that it should last about 2 years and that in the long run, I would save money that I would normally spend on temporary fillers every 4 months. The distributor had even comped the product (it was for a documentary on Discovery) so I was excited all over the board. Well, unfortunately I had blanching and palpable lumping (both visual and with manual manipulation) which necessitated removal so needless to say I wasn’t too sold on the product at first. These were the early days so some of us had to take the fall for the learning curve. Radiesse is no longer recommended for lips. To read more on this, see: Radiesse Removal.
But I think Radiesse is a great product for dermal facial augmentation and volume restoration!
