These days, there are several injectable dermal fillers on the market for you to choose from for facial rejuvenation. The Radiesse dermal filler offered by Scottsdale, AZ plastic surgeon Dr. James Nachbar is great for mild to moderate lines and wrinkles throughout the face, and for reversing age-related volume loss in the hands. Patients who might not have a lot of time for repeat touch-ups prefer the long-lasting results (1 – 2 years) of Radiesse. Using calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a water-based gel, this injectable plumps and softens the look of your skin with a minimally invasive treatment. Radiesse has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to effectively and safely contour your facial features. It can be used in tandem with other injectables (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a personalized procedure plan that restores your skin. Look younger and boost your confidence with Radiesse dermal fillers at Scottsdale Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ.
Adults who are in good health and concerned about mild to moderate lines and wrinkles are the best candidates for Radiesse injectable treatments. It can address smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines in the sides of the mouth. Radiesse is also approved to correct age-related volume loss in the hands to help them look smoother and younger looking. You should not have this injection if you are allergic to lidocaine or any ingredients in the product. Make sure to tell Dr. Nachbar about any allergies (severe or not) and any medical disorders or conditions. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, may be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within 1 – 2 years, you should not use Radiesse treatments.

"If you are thinking about getting a breast augmentation, first of all, do it because it’s absolutely life changing and two, go to Dr. Nachbar because he is the absolute BEST and so is all of his staff! I had been thinking about wanting to have my breasts done for awhile. My mom had her breasts done by Dr. Nachbar awhile back and had great results, so I was already very confident in Dr. Nachbar! They have an amazing photo machine where it simulates what your breast augmentation would look like and it’s beyond helpful and really accurate. I’m 2 and 1/2 weeks post op and I seriously could not be happier. I finally have a chest that is proportionate to my body and I feel amazing and so confident! Dr. Nachbar picked the size based off what I told him I was wanting and they are absolutely perfect, I wouldn’t change a thing!! The staff is also sooo nice, helpful, and reassuring. For the surgery, I was really nervous because with the COVID-19 protocols, you can’t have any family with you for pre op. But Dr. Nachbar and the staff made me feel so at ease and comfortable, I ended up not having an ounce of nervousness. It was amazing. I really cannot say enough great things about Dr. Nachbar!! He has so much experience and is an incredible surgeon!! Thank you Dr. Nachbar!!!!!"- M.M. / Yelp / Sep 28, 2020
"It’s been over 3 months from my surgery date and since day 1 post op I had zero regrets. From the appointments before the surgery to the actual surgery center and the post op appointments, everything went great. I love my results. Glad I did the research and found a great doctor. Everyone in Dr. Nachbar’s office is also so amazing! I would recommend him to anyone."- L.M. / Google / Sep 25, 2020
"Labiaplasty and Hood Reduction - I had a labiaplasty done on one side ten years back. My insurance covered it because of how uncomfortable it was. I used to pull on one side of my labia as a kid and it grew to some lengths from that and made things uncomfortable. That first surgery was with my OBYN and they took too much off that one side which caused a discolored sunken in the scar. I had an indent and white spot on my labia for 10 years before saving and having a plastic surgeon fix it. I had the wedge technique done to remove the scar on one side then the other side that's more swollen was trimmed to match. I also had my hood reduced. I'm very swollen but wanted to show others the whole process. It's an experience for sure so make sure you have a week off work. The healing is uncomfortable but so worth it! I'll post every week with updates! I am VERY bruised but not terribly swollen as I've seen. Ice is my best friend! So far I'm so happy about it. I cost me $5,800 in total and was completely out for the entire procedure. The entire staff is incredible! Dr. Nachbar in Phoenix Az. The first photo is the day of surgery. Will add before photos soon!"- B. / RealSelf / Sep 25, 2020
"Nachbar is the greatest and so is the staff! Everyone made me so comfortable and helped me through the whole process. Thank you so much! I'll never go anywhere else."- A.L. / Google / Sep 23, 2020
Radiesse dermal injections take place in one of the treatment rooms at Scottsdale Plastic Surgery in about 30 – 60 minutes after the consultation. To begin the treatment, you will sit comfortably while the areas of injection will be cleaned and marked. Most patients feel mild discomfort during their treatment at the initial prick, but if requested, a numbing cream can be used on the injection sites. The dosage of Radiesse, chosen at your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in an ultra-fine syringe. The marked injection sites will help guide the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the face. Once the procedure is finished, a cold compress may be applied to help minimize swelling and bruising.
What to Expect
After your Radiesse treatment, you may see slight redness, bruising, and swelling. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. These side effects can usually be covered with makeup. If the side effects last longer or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call Scottsdale Plastic Surgery. Most patients see some results right away with better results developing over time. Your face should appear younger, softer, and more radiant. Radiesse tends to last longer than some of the other fillers — up to 1 – 2 years. You should talk to Dr. James Nachbar during your consultation about when to schedule your next treatment to maintain your results.
