Cheeks - Radiesse vs. Fat Grafts vs Bone Grafts

Posted Jun 06 2009 12:04am

Hi please can you answer these questions to the best of your knowledge and expertise, thanks

can radiesse be used into cheekbones so i could i get an exact match as the other cheekbone, could this lead to further problems?

If i was to get fat grafts to build up parts of scraped away cheekbone due to surgery would it be a surgical operation or can that be injected?

Could bone graft be done to a good standard to make a cheekbone look symmetrical compared to the other?

Regarding the pufiness in cheek due to surgery could this be liquid (edema) trapped in the cheek and muscles?

If it is scar tissue (i cant understand how scar tissue could have come about since the incision was made on the cheekbone), would it be ideal to get an mri scan could you see the scar tissue with this scan?

By injecting steroids directly onto the scar tissue in small doses could this lead to further problems, is there any other ways of reducing the scar tissue and pufiness in the cheek?


i use radiesse to fill cheeks every day. it is easy, precise and effective. the worst side effect i have seen is a bruise. it lasts for a year or so.
i think that radiesse is more reliable than fat grafts and it is a heck of alot easier and cheaper. remember, no-one can tell you for sure how long a fat graft will last, no matter how good a technique is used.
radiesse is alot easier and cheaper than a bone graft.
it could be edema.
no mri necessary
steroids work very well to reduce scarring. i would do that over anything else. it is safe and easy.
hope that helps
