To add lost volume and initiate the body’s production of collagen, Houston, TX double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony E. Brissett, regularly administers Radiesse. This FDA-approved injectable wrinkle filler consists of calcium hydroxyapatite, a mineral naturally found in the bones and face. Radiesse works by adding instantaneous volume and initiating collagen which provides support for smoother, tighter skin. Dr. Brissett uses the filler to treat moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and folds near the mouth and between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds). Radiesse is also used to replace age-related volume loss in the cheeks.

"67 Years Young - Seeing a doctor doesn't get better than this. I have been travelling from New York and now Maine once a year for at least 10 years so that Dr Brissett can maintain my youthful appearance since he did my face lift. The lift was amazing - no swelling and no bruising. How many people can brag about that? The results were so amazing ( nobody even knew I had one - no scars ) - everyone knew I looked great but they didn't know how I did it. So, when you have such an amazing doctor - why look elsewhere? He is the greatest!! I have total confidence in his work. And, he is always so cheerful and caring. And - he has a very caring staff that has been with him for years."- D. / RealSelf / May 22, 2018
"Ethical plastic surgeon - Dr. Brissett is incredibly professional and highly skilled. His office staff is also very warm and welcoming.I went in for a Kybella consultation. Dr. Brissett actually erred on the side of saying I didn't need it, which I found to be very ethical (compared to most doctors who will just try to upsell you). I insisted that I wanted it done, and we were both pleasantly surprised by how well the..."- K. / RealSelf / May 22, 2018
"Reconstruction of Nose - I was referred to Dr. Brissett for reconstruction surgery (flap procedure) on my nose after skin cancer was removed. I was very anxious about the procedure. Dr. Brissett took time to address all of my concerns. His kind, calm energy and faith made me feel like I was the most special patient he had! I trust him completely and the surgery results were fantastic!"- J.S. / RealSelf / May 14, 2018
"Dr. Brissett Saved My Face After Cancer! - I was told by my dermatologist that I had skin cancer on my nose and would need a Mohs surgeon to remove it. My Mohs Surgeon then told me that it was possible I would need plastic surgery to replace what she was going to have to remove from my nose (which was most of my nose). She referred me to Dr. Brissett who made me a promise the very first time I met him. He told me that his goal and..."- C. / RealSelf / Apr 30, 2018

What to Expect
Before the treatment, the doctor will determine the appropriate dosage and area(s) to be treated for an individual patient. Radiesse will be injected using a fine needle. Since it’s already mixed with Lidocaine (a numbing agent), additional numbing usually isn’t needed, but can be provided depending on the patient’s preference. A treatment takes around 30 minutes to complete. There’s no downtime associated with Radiesse and patients can immediately return to their normal activities.
After a Radiesse treatment, patients commonly experience a sensation of numbness, redness, mild bruising, or itching. These side effects should subside within a day or two. Immediately after an injection, patients will notice a marked difference with smoother, firmer skin with diminished lines, wrinkles, and folds. Results can last 1 year or more.
