More fat transfer or Radiesse?

Radiesse Improves Mid-Face NasoLabial folds
Radiesse can easily add volume to the mid and lower face without anesthesia and with a predictable longevity of 12 or more months. Fat transfers can be as effective if the surgeon is skilled at detailing deep lines and wrinkles but how long it will last can range from 2 months to years.
Fat transfer or Radiesse?
- Your surgeon has given you a good option - Radiesse is easy and less expensive.
- However fat transfers can be done in the office with local anesthesia - if you are happy with the results, then having more fat transfers is another option.
- If the problem is a line (not a fold) around the mouth Restylane Silk in the line may be a better filler choice.
