Add volume to severe facial wrinkles and folds with the injectable wrinkle filler, Radiesse. It's effective for the nasolabial folds (the creases that spread from the curve of the nose to the crook of the mouth) and marionette lines (the lines that range from the turn of the mouth down toward the chin). Houston, TX board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jay Shenaq, implements Radiesse injections for long-lasting results that can make patients look more youthful and attractive without surgery. Radiesse is a contour-enhancing injectable dermal filler that contains microspheres of a natural material called calcium hydroxyapatite in a water-based gel. Call our office in Sugar Land, TX or the Galleria Cosmetic Center in Houston for your consultation.
"I met Dr Shenaq when my best friend had breast cancer. He took so much time to carefully explain the procedure to her. I was so impressed with this surgeon that when I came down with breast cancer in my left breast I immediately made my appointment with Dr. Shenaq. I had a double skin sparing mastectomy with reconstruction, and yes this plastic surgeon did a phenomenal job! Dr. Shenaq and his staff took such good care of me, they are very understanding, and really care about you. I could not be happier with the outcome of my surgery. Westside surgical center is where my surgery took place. If you want phenomenal patient care, this is the place to be. Dr. Shenaq with his particular care, really made me look and feel good about myself quickly."- L.M. / Yelp / Nov 03, 2015

"In 1998 my 9 year old had a major accident on his dirt bike (he was wearing a full face helmet) . Dr Shenaq put over 60 stitches in his face and you can’t even see a scar. The muscles in his far head were severed and hanging out of his face too. He does amazing work and I would recommend him to everyone!"- L.C. / Facebook / Feb 23, 2019
"5 STARS- 10 stars if I could! I would not have been able to survive the last year without the kind and loving care of Dr Shenaq and ALL of his staff! Brenda, Olga and Marcie were also there for me whenever I had questions or concerns or even when I was having a bad day and needed someone to talk to. When I first met with Dr. Shenaq and his staff I had just been diagnosed with Breast Cancer and I was nervous, frightened, and very concerned about my overall health. I have... Type 2 Diabetes and I DID NOT have it under control. Dr Shenaq was very kind, compassionate , comforting and very comforting, yet, very adamant that he was very concerned about my A1C and told me that he would not do the DIEP Reconstruction until my blood sugar was under control. This was a wakeup call for me! I got me A1C under control and was able to have the procedure. I am now 30 pounds lighter, have a flat tummy and my girls look great!!!! I am so confident and very grateful for these wonderful people! Go see him! You will not regret it!"- B.A. / Facebook / Sep 18, 2018
A good candidate for Radiesse is in good health and has a great overall skin tone, plus at least one of the following:

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.
