you for your RealSelf question and photos. It was a great idea to include
the photos with and without your smile.
advise my Radiesse patients and other filler patients that post-procedural
swelling will resolve in approximately 1 week. Radiesse is also uniquely
constructed with a gel vehicle that dissolves at the 3-month mark. Your doctor
may have anticipated some of this loss and in one week you will likely find
that this was a perfect treatment. Sometimes it takes a few extra weeks for
this to occur. Definitely if you have any questions I recommend talking to your
doctor. Good luck!
Yes, you definitely will have swelling up to 4 weeks after Radiesse has been injected. Give it some time and I am sure you will very happy with your treatment.
Hope this helps!
Swelling after injectables
Hello and thank you for your question. Swelling is a normal side effect of any injectable procedure and every patient is different as to how long their swelling will last. Your cheeks appear to look as expected after having Radiesse injected a few days ago. Based on your pictures it looks like you will be happy with your results. Give it a couple weeks and if you think they are still too big make a follow up appointment with your doctor. Regards, Dr. S.
Radiesse can cause swelling which will resolve on its own in 2-4 weeks. You can still expect some swelling for several more days before you see optimal results. I suggest you speak to your physician if you are upset. Best, Dr. Emer
Thanks for your question. Yes, you can absolutely still have swelling at this point so I would not consider this the final look. Give filler injections about what weeks to judge the end result.

After 4 days there is still probably a bit of swelling but looking at your pictures it looks like you are going to get a very good result. just give it another 10 days or so
