Hello Dr Naderi. I’m Nora.I am 30 year-old. 3 years ago I had Radiesse injections in my cheeks. They looked very nice at the beginning but later i started feeling my cheeks hard on touching, I don’t like my cheeks when I smile and I’m really desperate to remove them. Is there any way to remove them without having complications? I also had Radiesse injections in my upper lip.Sometimes i feel lumps there and sometimes they get inflammed..How can i get rid of them?Do they go on their own or a procedure is needed?
Radiesse is a nice filler for the cheeks if it is injected directly on top of the bone and not into the soft tissue. It sounds like that may be what you are experiencing. Radiesse should never be injected to the lips due to the increased problems with lumps and bumps. The filler usually lasts around 2 years or less. You may be having actual radiesse or scar tissue and not radiesse. Removing it at this point is not easily possible. Steroid injection to melt scar tissue may be the best bet. You need to be examined by a plastic surgeon in order to see what is going on.
