What Can I Do About Bad Radiesse Results?

HELP!! BAD Radiesse  results. I had the Radiesse put in the corners (lines)of the mouth area, great results.. however under my eyes!! Is just awful, each side two very noticeable bumps, with a bruise (or now a dark color) on each side, the left more noticeable.. both eyes look as if I have bumpy bags under them.. I look ten years older!!! He did this two months ago I went back, he tried to fix one side and made it worse!! Note- He is Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. What options do I have now? See someone else to do what?? More filler can't be the answer can it?

Radiesse around the eyes are off-label

All fillers injected around the eyes are used off-label.  Radiesse I think tends to give more problems than the others in this area.  Sometimes, it can be removed by making a small incision to squeeze it out.  If not, over time it gets absorbed and should go away.

Radiesse may last up to 2 years but is not permanent

Radiesse, although lasting longer than most temporary fillers, produces temporary results. If you don't like the results, talk to you doctor.

Certain conditions or results may be softened; in general any injection will diminish in 18 months to 2 years time.
