Skills and Specialties

As a top-rated plastic surgeon, Dr. Mizgala is highly trained in a wide variety of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. She was the first plastic surgeon in the South to offer the new FaceTite and BodyTite technology: exciting, new in-office or surgical methods to tighten skin with or without removing fat using minimal and next-to-invisible centimeter-long incisions. More recently, she trained on Renuvion, which promises to accomplish even more skin tightening without skin excision for her patients. The goal is to simplify procedures to tighten the skin of the neck, arms, abdomen, thighs, and anywhere else without needing traditional surgery with the scars that are required for procedures, such as a neck lift, arm lift, tummy tuck, or thigh lift. She is also skilled in traditional breast augmentation, breast lift, gynecomastia, tummy tuck, liposuction, facelifts, and after weight loss surgery. Hundreds of men and women visit her every year for surgical or nonsurgical treatments, such as CoolSculpting, laser hair removal, SmartLipo, and microneedling. She is an expert injector, performing all injections herself.  She adds her unique touch to achieve natural looking results with all the  the popular injectables: BOTOX, Dysport, Juvéderm, Restylane, and Radiesse.  She will allow her patients to participate in their injection experience to achieve the look they desire without fearing that 'Overdone look'.
