Radiesse first, now a chin implant. how long do I wait
You need to wait 9 - 12 months to let about 1/2 the Radiesse absorb. If you had more than a syringe of radiesse, you may need to wait longer.

Chin implant, chin augmentation with fillers and Radiesse
Hello and thanks for your question.
My Suggestion is to let the fillers dissipate prior to undergoing chin augmentation. This will assure the best results for you. Chin fillers need to dissolve so give some time in between before next surgery.
Chin Augmentation after Radiesse Injections
Dear Jj, It would be best to wait a year until the Radiesse has dissipated in order to determine the proper size of chin implant needed for your best overall result. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
Filler chin augmentation
It would be best to wait until if and when the Radiesse goes away. If you have an inadequuate oe uneven result, you might try a HA filler to improve your appeatance in the meantime. The HA filler can be dissolved at any time if you don'kt like it.
Chin implant candidate after Radiesse
A chin implant can certainly be inserted after the Radiesse injection. The problem is, the surgeon may recommend the wrong size or shape because the chin has been artificially expanded with a temporary injection. It probably best to wait at least a year for the injection to be dissolved for embarking on placement of a chin implant. For more information and many examples, please see the links below
Want Chin Implant after Radiesse Injection.
You should wait until the majority of the Radiesse has dissolved. Usually it will take at least a year. This can be determined by comparing your appearance with your pre-injection pictures.
