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).

"For years I struggled with mid section weight gain in the lower belly. No matter how many diets, exercise, healthy eating, counting carbs/macros I couldn’t even make a dent in the lower belly. It was depressing to say the least. I decided to look into a Tummy Tuck. Had several consultations with different surgeons. My concern was safety #1. I didn’t want a doctor to cut corners or a doctor that was all about IG likes and followers. When I met Dr Song I knew I would be safe. He also told me no diet or exercise would free me of the bottom belly area that it would need to be surgically removed. I didn’t really set any expectations because in my mind ANYTHING would be better than what I was currently living with. Now 6 weeks post op from TT/MR/Lipo to flanks and under chin and I not only look AMAZING but I feel even better than I look. My midsection speaks for its self. I followed every instruction and I healed great. Even the incision line looks great! Swelling sucks but even on my now worst days is better than my previous best days. The words thank you just aren’t enough. Dr Song you gave me my confidence back and I will forever be grateful."- D.W. / Google / Dec 20, 2021
"My son and I had a small procedure done at Prima, and I was quite impressed to say the least. Dr. Song, and Adriana were hospitable and made us feel very comfortable. They answered any questions or concerns we had. Adriana was awesome, she held my son’s hand and reassured him when he was nervous. Dr. Song was very gentle, and talked with my son through the entire procedure. I mentioned Dr. Song was gentle, and when I tell you I could hardly feel that needle (for numbing) go in, I mean I could barely feel it. The procedures were quick and easy, and my son and I are more than pleased with our results. I am looking forward to go back for my next procedure. Thank you Dr. Song and Adriana, you guys were fantastic! 🤗"- A.F. / Google / Dec 17, 2021
"Dr. Song is the BEST doctor I saw. He is very realistic and honest about everything. That’s the kind of doctor you want to be performing your surgery. He is very professional and his team is the best!! I honestly will miss seeing them. If I ever go back under the knife, it will be Dr. Song."- V.S. / Google / Nov 13, 2021

He is a double board certified plastic surgeon he is extremely knowledgeable in his field, compassionate, patient and takes pride in his work. He has more than EXCEEDED my expectations. Dr. Song made me feel extremely comfortable in entrusting my life in his hands. Safety is his primary concern and it showed. Dr. Song along with the entire staff at Prima plastic surgery are pure gold! Top notched. Adriana his nurse is amazing she works extremely well with Dr. Song she is his right hand, very knowledgeable, caring, patient and truly a gem. Michelle did an excellent job in recovery she gave my husband the necessary tools and information needed for my successful recovery. I consulted with several surgeons before choosing Dr. Song and no one else came close. He held my hand every step of the way as well as giving me his personal cell phone number and calling to check on me during after care. This just felt right it felt like family. 10 stars easily!"- L.N. / Google / Nov 13, 2021

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 will vary. The total cost differs depending on how many syringes are needed during treatment to attain the desired results.
