Excellent Results - La Jolla, CA

I had Radiesse done by a nurse practitioner...

I had Radiesse done by a nurse practitioner several times at a different facility with mixed results. The last time was in June and the results were less than acceptable. There was too much filler placed at the bottom portion of my cheeks rather than near the top of the cheekbone, which overall defeated the purpose of getting the lifting effect I was looking for. I mentioned that I thought more filler should be placed at the top of the cheekbone prior to her beginning the injections several
times, but to no avail. The results were ultimately uneven and lumpy.
Several months later I went to Dr. Groff for laser scar removal and asked him about fixing the botched injections. After looking at my facial structure in various types of lighting, he was able to correct the look of my cheekbones and face with a single syringe. Dr. Groff has an artistic eye and is extremely skilled in performing injectable fillers. I believe that the skill of the practitioner is EVERYTHING when having a procedure like this done. It is true that the cost was slightly more, but as
they say, you get what you pay for!
Glad you were able to get the look you wanted.  You are so right about getting what you pay for, more people like their results if they go to a board certified plastic surgeon (article about that here).  
The first time you had the radiesse injected do you remember how many syringes were used?

Yes, 2 syringes were used.
