Facial Depression - Del Mar, CA

I lost substantial fat under one of my cheeks,...

I lost substantial fat under one of my cheeks, probably due to a facelift. Doctor used 3 vials of radiesse. My face looked worse two weeks later and was also all bruised.

I spent almost $1000 and the result was invisible. I looked exactly the same before and after. The doctor wanted to add more but I got cold feet--decided if $1000 didn't do it, what could another $500 do?

Hmmm, New York, I wonder if the Radiesse they used was slightly watered down making it have no effect on you. I'I've hear of that a few times before, maybe it would be worth seeing another doctor.

Must not be very familiar with Radiesse to have done such an awful job on my face.
