Radiesse-Tear Troughs - East Brunswick, NJ

All I can say is dont do it. My Dr. talked me into it, I trusted her and five months later my face is a mess. I should have heeded all the warning I read here but trusted her and have ruined my face. Two weeks after my eyes looked great this picture is five months later, not some are telling me I may need surgery to correct which I can afford and I feel my face is ruined.

What kind of hack surgeon would ever inject this beneath the eyes. Radiesse is too hard and viscous to be used in the delicate eye area. This guy could not have been a real plastic surgeon.

Mfan17 everything is wrong with this product . I had it injected cheeks and laugh lines and I have severe pain under eyes and swelling redness and burning . Yes has to probably do everything with plastic surgeon the way they inject but the product to is terrible .

Please look at my recent post before you do anything. I am neuro1 and I had a horrible immune response to the Radiesse. It is not safe.

That is unbelievable!! We are lucky to have this forum and it should be required reading for all patients at all derm centers prior to any injections or procedures. The doctors should have to produce statistics for all of their patients since producing one ideal image of the perfect outcome is unfair and not completely honest. Thanks for sharing. I'm currently waiting for the juve derm in my face to dissolve but it ain't pretty. Never again!

Your so right . I heard that so many time only the good never bad . Even from my plastic surgeon how never happened before and to them is if 10 are ok 1 it doesn't matter but it does matter a lot I'm so ready to fight this with all I can . Been suffering for 6 months and pain never mind redness burning swelling but the pain had completely made me lose my mind my life my everything . I'm not capable of having a minut without a pain . This is terrible wish no one ever has to go through this

Here's the kicker with the ps that injected me, ps should stand for piece of sh&@! Btw. It will be a. Year next week, he won't give me a dime back, even though he injected tear troughs, and said he was doing cheeks, and then suggested I go to this guy in Orlando who specializes in laser correction for the discoloration my injection left. He said this physician is the only one, if it was even correctable, that could perform the laser for this problem. Some bs that he is the one who developed it or some further such bs that he is giving me. When I said to him, that's more money, he very arrogantly, shook his head and said just forget about the money!!! Omg I am still in shock! He

Im sorry for your outcome, but I wont judge the doctor, without not knowing what you did and followed all his orders. Did you double check the doctor before doing this procedure ? was he board certified? did he do fillers and Tear Trough procedure as a routine and was he specialist in it and did he do this 100 times a year more ? and has 100's and 100's of reviews and feedback's from patients of this specific procedure. Otherwise with all do respect to you and others and i feel bad for you, you should have investigated the physician and its procedure prior. Always remember, any medical doctor, who has graduated from a medical school can do these kinds procedure legally, without any training.

arent you only supposed to have a thin filler under eyes like Restyline

Yes, but in my case, the greedy a**hol* who injected me, supposedly on cheekbones, did under my eye also, he says he didn't, however, I don't know how there is bump right under my eyelid, approaching a year now. And radiesse shouldn't migrate due to the viscosity, he has no answers except I had a bad reaction, BS, I suspect this has happened to others.

I feel so bad for you!! I am also unhappy with filler for eye trough (juvederm). Same story as yours - doctor great at Botox then convinced me to fill troughs for maximum beauty (sold me on my own insecurities and false sense if security from doing Botox with no issues). In the end this is about making money for doctors and focusing too much on our own vanity. The good news is we have forums like this to help others make more informed decisions. Obviously doctors show their success stories/patients instead of the bad procedures that do happen frequently with eye trough fillers according to my friend! She also told me perlane (sp ?) is best for eye area.

yes, didnt last long....my injector want to use ultrasound, doubt it will do anything, I'm seven months out and still red with grooves
  • Reply
Im freaking out, I am scheduled in a few days & was getting tear grooves done, did you have these done by a plastic surgeon or ?
  • Reply
I have one thing to say read and look at the pictures here...I would never get tear troughs done with Radiesse. It might look fine in the beginning the injection site swells and stays red for months...I have grooves and red kidney shaped lumps on top of my cheek bone that nothing will hide...Dont do it.
