"Dr. Dauwe and his staff are like a dream team! I legit leave wanting to be friends with his staff they are all so adorable. Seriously though, any type of surgery is so scary and they make the experience so comfortable. I felt like he listened to what I wanted and was honest with what was going to be realistic with my body type. I was referred by Dr.Dauwe by a few of my clients and am so thankful I chose him to do my procedure. If you’re in the Dallas area I wouldn’t recommend anyone else. Truly grateful to have had such an amazing experience! Thank you Dr. Dauwe for everything!"- T.C. / Google / Apr 30, 2019
"Phenomenal experience from consultation to post-op. Dr. Dauwe did a thorough job explaining the procedure in great detail, discussing my different options and the outcomes, and really made feel comfortable with my decision. His work is absolutely beautiful, and he is a true artist. You can tell Dr. Dauwe really goes the extra mile for his patients, and has a caring bedside manner. Julie- his cosmetic coordinator, is simply amazing. She checked on me several times before and after the procedure, and was always there to answer questions. Highly recommend! One of the best decisions I've ever made! I'm very grateful."- D.K. / Google / Oct 13, 2020

"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Dauwe and his staff! Sara and Julie are so sweet and do a fantastic job preparing patients for their surgery day. Catherine Kinney called me the night before to make sure I was prepared for anesthesia. Her voice was so calming and she really made me feel at ease for my upcoming procedure. The morning of my surgery, I was greeted with many friendly smiles, including Karen and CRNA Kinney. Before my procedure, Dr. Dauwe came in and measured and marked me up. He once again went over his plan for my procedure and what I could expect after surgery. I had my breast implants removed with a lift. The most surprising thing to me was that HE CALLED THURSDAY EVENING TO CHECK ON ME!! I thought that was so thoughtful of him. After five days, I can honestly say my results are above and beyond what I ever expected. Dr. Dauwe did a wonderful job! I’ve had minimal pain and my breasts are looking great! He is very knowledgeable in his field, he is professional and kind. I highly recommend him for any plastic surgery needs!"- S.R. / Google / Oct 07, 2020
"Dr. Dauwe and His team are Phenomenal!!! - Tummy Tuck with LipoI had an extremely long journey to Dr. Dauwe, but I'm so thankful that I found him! I couldn't figure out the source of my GI problems after seeing MULTIPLE specialists, GI doctor, Colorectal Surgeon, multiple diagnostic tests with no answers. I have known Julie for years, and thankfully after talking with her one day she suggested I come see Dr. Dauwe. One look at my abdomen, he said "has anyone told you that you have a pretty significant umbilical hernia?" I had no idea, but Dr. Dauwe was able to figure out the source of my problems and knew how to get it corrected. We decided that a Tummy Tuck due to Diastasis Recti and lipo because why not, along with a hernia repair would fix my problem, and he was right!! I had surgery 7/17/20 and my problems are GONE! I also have an amazing looking tummy again! My recovery was way easier than I had imagined! I took 2 weeks off work and enjoyed having time to relax. I had pain, but it was controlled pretty easily. During my recovery some concerns arose, Dr. Dauwe called and talked to me numerous times, I even bothered him while he was on vacation. He's an amazing surgeon, but he's also a caring, fun person to talk to. He will make you feel completely comfortable. Plus his office manager, Julie, is the sweetest person you will ever meet! I love Dr. Dauwe, Julie ad the whole team and Lemmon Avenue Plastic Surgery Center. I can't wait for my next procedure!!"- J. / RealSelf / Sep 30, 2020
Procedure Technique for Radiesse
Radiesse wrinkle injections are performed in a treatment room at Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery in around 30 – 60 minutes once you have completed your consultation. To start the procedure, you will lay in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel mild discomfort throughout the procedure at the first prick, but if preferred, a topical anesthetic may be spread on the treatment sites. The pre-marked site of injection will help Dr. Dauwe to carefully administer Radiesse into the needed areas. As soon as the treatment is done, a cold compress will be held to the treated areas to reduce bruising and swelling.
What to Expect with Radiesse
Following your Radiesse injection, you may have mild redness, swelling, and bruising. This is normal and should last less than a week. These side effects may typically be camouflaged with make-up. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery. Many patients have visible results immediately after the treatment with final results apparent after the swelling resolves. Your face will look softer and younger. Radiesse typically lasts longer compared to other dermal fillers — about 1 – 2 years. You can talk to Dr. Phillip Dauwe at your appointment about how soon to get your next injection to touch up your results.
Frequently Asked Questions about Radiesse
How much does Radiesse cost?
The cost of Radiesse is dependent on the number of syringes needed to achieve your desired outcome. During your consultation at our practice, we will discuss your expected results and determine the amount needed to achieve them. We will also discuss your out-of-pocket costs for your treatment.
How does Radiesse compare to other fillers?
Fillers such as Radiesse are considered temporary, even though the results may last up to a full year. Common filler procedures include collagen, calcium hydroxyapatite, hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, and the heaviest of the fillers, PMMA. Radiesse is the only dermal filler composed of calcium-based microspheres, which are comparable to hyaluronic acid injectable fillers in terms of their duration of results. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers and evaluate your facial tone, laxity, and volume levels to help you decide which filler may be the best choice for you.
What are the possible side effects of Radiesse?
Severe and/or abnormal side effects are rare with Radiesse. Immediately following treatment, patients may experience mild redness, bruising, numbness, and/or itching. These are temporary side effects that usually disappear within a day or two.
What other procedures can I combine with Radiesse?
Radiesse injections can be performed in combination with other injectable treatments to help you achieve your ideal results. Many patients combine dermal fillers such as Radiesse with BOTOX or other muscle relaxants to create an overall younger-looking appearance. Talk to your injector during your consultation to learn more about other procedures that can be combined with Radiesse.
Are Radiesse injections painful?
Typically, patients use topical numbing cream prior to their injection treatment, and this alleviates any significant discomfort. Most patients only experience slight discomfort during the actual injections.
