Be sure to talk to Dr. Lee if you have any allergies (whether mild or severe) and any medical disorders or conditions. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, might be pregnant, or are trying to conceive in the next several years, you shouldn't get Radiesse injections.
"Dr. Lee is very personable! He is always very thoughtful and kind. If you are looking to get a procedure done, he will be able to kindly guide you through the process. Very seldom do you meet a doctor who is as considerate and relational as Dr. Lee!"- J.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2017

"I had a tummy tuck with a hysterectomy, at age 58. I never would have thought of doing anything for myself, on the suggestion from my gyn I saw Dr. Lee. Dr. Lee did an excellent job and above all of my expectations. I am ever grateful for Dr. Lee, the TT has been life changing for me. My only regret is I didn’t do it sooner. He will be my doctor for any future procedures."- D.C. / Google / Apr 25, 2019
"Dr. Lee took care of the follow-up excision of a mole my derm had removed for a biopsy. He and his staff were friendly, personable, and I felt well-cared for. They all made sure I knew what was going to happen during the procedure, and ensured I was comfortable the entire time. Dr. Lee will be my go-to plastic surgeon from now on!"- L.M. / Google / Apr 11, 2019
"Dr Lee is very calm, with exceptional listening skills. He performed a small surgical procedure ( the tiniest incision ever) I could not be happier with the direct honest way of managing the expectations. A a lot of plastic and cosmetic surgeons are overselling / overpromising their results but not dr. Lee- a refreshing find. Highly recommend."- C.M. / Yelp / Mar 31, 2019
Radiesse wrinkle injections are performed in a treatment room at Nuveau Plastic Surgery in around 30 – 60 minutes once you have completed your consultation. To start the procedure, you will lay in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel tolerable discomfort throughout the procedure at the first prick of the needle, but if preferred, a local anesthetic may be spread on the treatment sites. The Radiesse dose, determined during your consultation, will be placed in a fine needle. The pre-marked site of injection will help the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the needed areas. As soon as the treatment is done, a compress will be held to the treated areas to reduce bruising and swelling.
What to Expect
Following your Radiesse injection, you may have mild redness, bruising, and swelling. This is normal and should last for around a week. These side effects may typically be camouflaged with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact Nuveau Plastic Surgery. Many patients have visible results minutes after the treatment with final results appearing in a month or so. Your face will look softer, younger, and lifted. Radiesse typically lasts longer compared to other dermal fillers, with improvements for about 1 – 2 years. You can talk to Dr. Edward Lee at your appointment about how soon to get your next injection to touch up your results.
