I had Radiesse injections on 2/17/09. Immediately upon injection of Radiesse on my left cheek, I felt it explode and saw in my doctor's face that she was truly shaken.
After four days, I have a huge hematoma under my left eye with severe bruising. The right side of my face looks caved in (the cheek bone area is plumped, but the plump ends abruptly and it looks like there is a divet on that side).
I spoke with the doctor and expressed my concerns. She said she put exactly the same dosage of Radiesse into each cheek, therefore, everything is equal. I know for a fact that the two sides of our bodies are not "twins," so just injecting the same amount into each cheek does not constitute equality.
I am still sporting the major black eye, and I am getting ready to go back into her office for a follow-up for a wart she removed. What are my options for approaching her to my dissatisfaction of how lopsided the effects of the Radiesse are? I am not willing to live with a lopsided face after spending $1200 on treatment. This was a special she offered for February for Valentine's Day (a buy two get one free). I see no improvement in my cheeks and am upset that the right side of face looks so odd.
