Radiesse Manhattan, NY

Radiesse™ is a great facial line filler and soft tissue enhancer. Radiesse™ is derived from smooth calcium hydroxylapatite(CaHA) microspheres ( tiny particles). Commonly treated areas include the nasolabial folds and “marionette lines” around the mouth and chin. It can also be used to contour the cheeks, jaw, and nose. It has also been used for buttock augmentation for patients who do not have adequate fat donor sites to perform a Brazilian buttock augmentation or prefer to have a relatively easy and quick outpatient procedure using filler products. The benefits of Radiesse™ are reported to last between 12 to 18 months.


“As an expert in the field of plastic surgery, one of the most rewarding aspects of my career has been listening to my patients’ stories about how having plastic surgery has changed their lives.”
