Radiesse was approved for cosmetic use by the US FDA in December of 2006. Prior to this approval it had been widely used off-label for a variety of areas including lip augmentation. With increased use, complications including nodule formation were reported. The formation of nodules at a site distant from the area of injection has not been reported to date. This report documents such a case and discusses possible etiologies and treatments for these distant nodules.
