I was injected Radiesse in my nasolabial folds and cheeks 7 days ago. For some reason the swelling in the folds has diminished, nevertheless, my cheeks look a little bit big. Could this be due to swelling or was I injected too much Radiesse? If its not due to swelling can the volume in my cheeks diminish with the massages the Doctor gives at the office?
