I got Radiesse in my mid face four months ago to relief the nasabial folds.
The effect has not yet worn off. I heard it last 1-2 years.
But now I inherited money and want a midface lift and permanent fat grafting to my mid face.
Can a plastic surgeon remove the Radiesse from my face or do I have to wait till it has worn off?
In other words: how long do I have to wait till I can get a real mid face lift or cheek lift surgery?
I am afraid that if the Radiesse is still in my face when the PS does the surgery that he might not lift the area where the Radiesse is in and then the face will suck when the Raddiesse wears off 6 months later...
i agree with you - i would wait until the radiesse wears off before going for a surgical lift. unfortunately, there is no way to take it out. your best bet is to wait about a year after the procedure was done.
hope that helps
