Restylane inserted under Radiesse - do you agree this is what you would do? (Photo)

It appears in your situation the PS was trying to camouflage the lump that formed after Radiesse, since Radiese cannot be dissolved, by injecting HA filler more superficially to smooth out the appearance of the lump. Unfortunately this treatment approach has not been successful for you. The good news is the Radiesse will resorb over time, however there may be some other options.
I suggest you follow up with your PS to discuss what further steps may be taken including dissolution of the HA with hyaluronidase and possible extraction of the nodule by the surgeon. Many years ago there was some thought that saline injections may improve Radiesse nodules, so you may want to discuss that with your PS as well. Good luck! Regards, Dr. Matt Elias
Using Various Injectables
Feel free to schedule a follow-up appointment with your board certified facial plastic surgeon to address your concerns. I suggest you remain patient and follow your surgeon's recovery regimen with the understanding that most injectable patients are unhappy with the initial results and then become very satisfied once the injectables have taken effect.
