Has anyone had Radiesse injections followed by a facelift???

I would like to know if anyone has ever had Radiesse injections and shortly thereafter had a facelift procedure done??  I had the product injected just above my mid cheek bone area for tear trough's and just above my upper lip for lines around my mouth.  I know that I will probably want to have a facelift in the near future but after reading about this product.....I don't know if a PS would be able to perform a successful facelift if this product is still in there.  Doesn't it bind to your tissues?  I've read that it mimics bone, not tissue, and if that is the case, wouldn't it make it hard for the PS to move the tissue where it was injected in my face?  Worried that I may have made a mistake in using this product and it will delay me from having a face lift any time in the near future.  Just curious if anyone else has run into this problem with this particular filler (Radiesse).

I got it under the eyes and checks. Only once. Then 2 years later I got the facelift. No problems.

Hi Slender20....thx for the reply! I'm curious....did you like the Radiesse? I had the same areas injected....top of cheek bones for the tear trough area. I'm only 6 wks into it but it seems to have created a light stain on my skin....I'm really hoping it will go away in time....not so sure I should have had the injections in those areas now..... How did it affect you, if you don't mind me asking?
