I Look Fake with a Fat Face and Large Cheeks After Small Amount of Radiesse - New York, NY

Thanks for your comments. The swelling has gone way down and I look almost like myself again, just slightly enhanced. READ COMMENT

I saw your update. Mine is actually looking better too. The swelling is way down. I guess some people just have weird swelling and complications weeks after. READ COMMENT

KiraAnne, Did your radiesse last 2 years? Oh god, this is scary. READ COMMENT
