Can I Have Radiesse Removed from my Chin?

I had recently got Radiesse injection on my jaw line and the top of my chin for more prominent look. 5 days ago, I noticed a big lump underneath my chin. I thought the Radiesse had migrated there, but no one knew. I went into Urgent Care and the MD told me it looks like swollen lymph nodes under my chin. I am on antibiotics and the swelling is still there and it makes my chin look like I have a double chin. If it is Radiesse, can that be fixed or removed? Or do I have to wait to dissolve. Please advice. Please help!

Radiesse removal don't do it

Firstly, see the physician who performed the injection. They will be much more able to tell you whether what you are experiencing is Radiesse or a lymph node. Removal of Radiesse is not a good idea. It can be manipulated in the short term, so again see your physician. If it is Radiesse and can't be manipulated I would wait for it to dissolve.
