I went through a Radiesse injection in the nose and chin, the results are good but I'd rather prefer a nose job and chin implant in the future, how long should I wait so it will be safe to perform the surgery?
How Long After Radiesse Injections do I Wait to Get Surgery on Nose and Chin?

Surgery after Radiesse
It is optimal to wait a year or until the radiesse material is gone. However, the earliest is about 6 to 9 months.
How long after Radiesse before having surgery.
Ideally you would want all of the product gone which would take about a year. However, if the nose appears the same as before treatment earlier it might be possible to undergo the surgery in as early as 6-8 months. It depends to some degree on how much was injected, how much correction was obtained and how quickly your body breaks down the product. Best of Luck Dr Harrell
