Lip augmentation with Calcium Hydroxylapatite “Radiesse”, advantages and disadvantages. (personal technique)


Lip augmentation with

 “Radiesse”, advantages  and disadvantages.  (personal technique)




Eyes and lips are two principal elements which play a very important role in expression of women sensualities.

The arc of Cupid, the magnetic eyes of Cleopatra in the universal literature, and actually Angelina Jolie’s, or Scarlett Johansson’s lips are making subject of beauty and attraction, we call them “informational lines of intense sexual signals”.



Knowing about double-reversed curve of Hogarth, french curves, which are usually based on logarithmic or exponential basis, we are determined to take in consideration in the same sense any other kind of artistic lines which are important in the psychology of art, regarding the expression of face in Aesthetic Surgery, see Michelangelo’s collection of studies of perfection .


 Beginning with idea of “informational lines and forms with intense sexual signals”  we are paying a lot of attention to details regarding the lines, contours  and forms.


One of the most requested, noninvasive, surgical maneuvers in the facial aesthetics is lip contour and volume augmentation. 70 to 80 per cent of women above 40 years old, need frontal and peri-orbicular wrinkle enhancement and correction. More than 50% of this category need lip contour and volume augmentation.



As we know there are various cosmetic products which are used in this filed, permanent and temporary injectable implants, animal protein (Collagen) or  synthetic  products purely biocompatible.


Every one of them represents advantages and disadvantages regarding injection technique or re-absorption time. As much as it is discussed and demonstrated, in surgical experience among so many products the safest one is going to be in the head-list , Hyaluronic Acid, synthetic, fully biocompatible, but also with very short  re-absorption time. 

One of the personal experience of our team is using “Hydroxil Apatite of Calcium” as injectable implant for contouring and beautifying lip augmentation.

Unfortunately  it is mostly recommended not to use Hydroxil Apatite of Calcium “Radiesse” in lip augmentation because of some undesired results in spite of its reasonable long term re-absorption  and its excellent results in wrinkle correction, comparing Hyaluronic Acid where the rate of failure is mostly impossible if the surgeon is well trained.


Our personal technique, studied on more than 50 cases, brings enough arguments for advantages in using of  HAC in lip augmentation, without any major complication,  ( some time echimossis ) avoiding risk factors  in lip enhancement and making Hydroxil Apetite of Calcium a desirable injectable implant with long life term.  




Because of it’s solid crystals in composition (CaHA spheres are between 25-45 nicrons)“Radiesse” is one of the most long life term, temporary injectable implant.


CaHA is eliminated by Phogocistosys , it is non-toxic, non-antigenic, non-carcinogenic and non-allergic.


Using our proposal technique of fine needle (30G), deep and lent injection, we can obtain desirable lip contouring and augmentation.



As a synthetic filler, purely biocompatible, biodegradable,  non-Toxic, non allergic, non carcinogenic.

It is easily administrated under local anesthesia.

No needed for allergic test.

Long life term between 1 to 1.5 year, shorter in the smokers as we observed.




The most undesirable side effect is because of technique and lake of experience, nodule form foreign bodies in soft tissue, that could be shaped step by step with daily local massage.

Blood infusion in the soft tissue (echimosa) which passes in few days using local Heparin gel.
