Radiesse is a facial filler that is formed from micro-spheres of calcium hydroxylapatite. The substance is a water-based gel that is injected into the patient's facial skin to help address their wrinkles and lines, particularly around the mouth area. Dr. Michael Suzman is a board-certified plastic surgeon at WESTMED Group in Westchester County, NY who offers Radiesse as a rejuvenating treatment for patients who are in need of wrinkle reduction. Typically the solution works best on the nasolabial folds (the creases referred to as "smiles lines") and marionette lines. Radiesse can also be used to treat volume loss in the face that has an aging effect. Results can last for several months depending on each patient's reaction and needs, helping to restore their youthful appearance.
"Excellent surgeon - Dr Suzman did a superb job on my facelift. He also did fat transfer, chemical peel and Botox. I love the way I look in the mirror thanks to Dr Suzman. He has a terrific, caring personality - he is wonderful! No problem getting appointments, no wait time. Office staff is wonderful. I could not be more pleased."- Anonymous / Vitals / Jan 30, 2019
"Dr Suzman has the BEST bedside manner. I am so pleased with his work and the professionalism and kindness of his staff. I’m so grateful to Dr Suzman."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Mar 05, 2020
"Dr. Suzman is so caring and so knowledgeable. I have seen him many times over the years for both cosmetic and medical reasons. He is a calming presence. If you want to see him for cosmetic reasons, he’s fantastic. You will NEVER look like you had filler or Botox. You will just look younger. If you are going for medical reasons, he is really the best. Very thoughtful in his approach."- C.A. / Google / Jan 24, 2020
"Dr. Suzman closed after my MOHS surgery. The surgery was front & center on my nose. I have to say -- Dr. Suzman & the staff at his office, as well as the Rye Ambulatory Center, made a painful and uncomfortable situation as pleasant as possible with his informative, calming & pleasant nature, as well as a super-delightful staff. Helen Reyes, his PA-C, who handled a lot of my post-op visits and fresh wound care, was superb. Highly recommend."- G.D. / Google / Oct 26, 2019

What to Expect
The doctor will evaluate your skin and consider the depth of your wrinkles on the middle and lower part of your face to estimate the number of syringes needed to complete the treatment. After Radiesse is injected, it will soften the wrinkles and folds to make them naturally smooth. Many of our patients, who use Radiesse, love their results so much, that they ask to be put on the schedule in advance for treatments every 9-12 months.
You will usually see immediate results from Radiesse once injected into the desired area. Downtime and discomfort with Radiesse treatments are usually minimal. Some patients may develop bruises or swelling that will last up to 10 days, but it is usually easy to cover up with makeup.
