The cosmetic surgeons of Prima Center for Plastic Surgery in Duluth, GA use injectable fillers, such as Radiesse, for patients who desire a nonsurgical way to decrease the visible appearance of wrinkles and facial lines. Radiesse is a dermal filler that is used for folds and wrinkles. It contains microspheres of a natural material called calcium hydroxyapatite (“hi-droxy-apa-tite”) in a water-based gel. This filler is used to fill moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth) and marionette lines (the creases that extend from the corner of the mouth down toward the chin).

"Dr Stephenson and his staff made my entire experience one that I’ll never forget. I had a abdominoplasty in 4/2019 and my results exceeded my expectations. His staff knows you by name, they’re always welcoming and that sets the tone for the entire visit. Dr Stephenson is always available to answer any questions you may have, there’s someone on call 24 hrs. I’ve recommended my family and friends to Dr Stephenson and he never disappoints. I’ve just celebrated my 50 th birthday and was able to wear a beautiful dress for the first time since having children. Thanks Dr Stephenson, you’re patient, kind, knowledgeable, always smiling and so much more.. you’ve restored my confidence, given me a new outlook on life and I will be forever grateful. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Stephenson and his staff.!!!"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Aug 07, 2019
"For many years I carried real huge breast (40H) causing severe neck and back pain. My bras were expensive, $85.00 to be exact. I been to many consultations for a breast reduction with several doctors who all recommended the following: lose weight, change your meal plan, and exercise. However having such large breast prevented me from completing certain workouts (jumping jacks, sit ups, running) and wearing my seatbelt correctly while operating my vehicle. I don’t remember the plastic surgeon who referred me to Dr. Stephenson, but I can’t thank him enough. Dr. Stephenson was the one I’d been looking for since the beginning. Consultation was scheduled in February and my surgery took place in April. The results are remarkable! Dr. Stephenson is very specific about his work, informative of all surgical procedures, and recovery orders. Wasn’t a question I asked that he didn’t or couldn’t answer. The best part is, I no longer have neck or back pain. I would recommend him to anyone.Thanks Dr. Stephenson"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Aug 07, 2019

What to Expect
During the consultation, the cosmetic surgeons of Prima Center for Plastic Surgery will evaluate the overall health of the skin and assess the amount of wrinkles in the middle and lower third of the face. This evaluation will help our cosmetic surgeons develop an individual plan for the appropriate amount of Radiesse to use during treatment. Our goal is to soften the folds, not obliterate them. Many other offices, med-spas or clinics may have a non-physician provider administer these types of injections. At Prima Center for Plastic Surgery, our cosmetic surgeons perform all injectable treatments themselves. This is to ensure safety and the best possible outcome for each patient. Radiesse typically lasts about 9-12 months. Many patients love their results so much that they return and are put on a rotation schedule.
Discomfort with Radiesse treatments is usually minimal. Occasionally, the tiny needle may nick a small blood vessel during the injection and a small bruise may develop. This can last from 5-10 days and can require makeup to cover. There is minimal downtime. The results from this treatment are evident immediately.
The average cost for a syringe of Radiesse is between $600-$800. The total cost varies depending on how many syringes are needed during treatment to attain the desired results.
