Metairie, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Cynthia Mizgala offers a wide range of dermal filler treatments to help correct aging in the face, addressing lines, wrinkles, and lost volume. Restylane is our most popular dermal filler because it treats different areas of concerns with different formulas for results that are long-lasting. Restylane is made with a synthetic version of the body's natural hyaluronic acid (HA). When Restylane products are injected, they give the skin a natural, softer look that is more supple and full. A unique treatment plan can address mild to severe facial lines and wrinkles, as well as add volume to the lips and mid-face. A Woman Plastic Surgeon carries several Restylane dermal fillers, including:
- Restylane: Fills in facial wrinkles and folds
- Restylane Defyne: Corrects moderate to deep smile and laugh lines
- Restylane Lyft: Adds volume and lift in the cheeks
- Restylane Refyne: Fills in fine to moderate smile and laugh lines
- Restylane Silk: Builds volume in the lips and smoothes vertical lip lines
Restylane injectable treatments are great for any woman or man over the age of 21 who is looking to rejuvenate their appearance. Since it has different formulas, your procedure will be individualized to suit your concerns and goals. Restylane can help you correct visible signs of aging, including fine lines on your face, or improve the volume in your lips and cheeks. It can also treat moderate or severe wrinkles, like laugh lines, frown lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and more. Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, is mixed with Restylane to ensure a comfortable experience.

"Dr. Mizgala and Her Staff Are the Best in the Business! Dr. Mizgala is the best! I had my initial consultation in August 2018, to discuss excess skin removal on my stomach, back and arms after losing around 140 pounds. I had maintained the weight loss for around 15 years, and my work and financial situation finally made skin removal surgery possible. I knew I was looking at major surgery/ surgeries, and I needed to feel confident and trusting of the person I chose to perform such extensive work on me. I have pre-existing high blood pressure, frequent skin infections and a history of severe nausea and vomiting with anesthesia. I needed a surgeon who appreciated the complexity involved with the amount of skin I needed removed, and who would be able to safely get the results I wanted. I consulted with two other surgeons, and both of those appointments were rushed and quite uninformative. Instead of answering my questions, I was referred to a pamphlet or the internet as I was being shown the door. My consultation with Dr. Mizgala was the exact opposite. I was encouraged and comfortable before I went to the office. Patty, the office manager, was so sweet and helpful when I spoke to her to make my appointment. At the consultation, Dr. Mizgala and I discussed several procedures to get the best results for my body type. She took the time to fully explain the pros and cons of each procedure, the downtime and recovery involved, and the results I could realistically expect. She answered my questions and addressed my concerns with respect and dignity. Together Dr. Mizgala and I came up with a plan of action that would provide the best outcome for me. I never felt rushed or like I was in a sales pitch; I was at ease and I just knew I was in good hands. From that very first day, I have felt safe, comfortable and supported by the entire staff. Every visit since then has just reinforced my feeling of gratitude for having found such a wonderful, caring surgeon and her awesome team. Dr. Mizgala and her staff truly care about their patients’ complete recovery. I had a fleur de lis tummy tuck and radiofrequency assisted liposuction on my neck in November, a bra line back lift in March, and an arm lift in April. I only had one minor wave of nausea between all 3 surgeries; I’ve experienced worse with a 15 minute epidural. I had several feet of incision on my torso and arms with the 3 surgeries. Given my long history of skin infections, it was not surprising that I experienced delayed healing in some areas. Dr. Mizgala saw me every single day, including weekends, and she came to my condo to check on me. She was also a strong advocate in helping me get the care I needed to heal with the best results. I felt her concern and I knew she sincerely cared about my recovery. I am absolutely thrilled with my results. Dr. Mizgala and her team have treated me like family throughout this entire process. I never expected this to be such a life-changing experience, inside and out. Dr. Mizgala and her staff’s encouragement helped me to find self-confidence I didn’t even realize I was missing! They all truly care about their patients’ holistic recovery every step of the way. When my life circumstances allowed me the opportunity to have my excess skin removed, this was mostly about the practicality of getting rid of the physical complications caused by the skin while I was still relatively young. I wanted to be able to exercise without having infections and interference from the extra skin, and I wanted to get the extra weight off my back to help my sciatica and hip pain. I got the practical results I was looking for, but the care, support and encouragement of Dr. Mizgala and her staff have given me so much more. I thought this was going to be the last step in my weight loss journey, but it has turned out to be the start of my new life. I’m not afraid to stand up for myself, which is an incredible and priceless surprise. My friends and family see a huge difference in the way I look and carry myself, physically and mentally. I recently turned 45 years old, and I called it my Re-Birth Day. I knew I would have a significant change in my body, but I never dreamed I would have such an incredible mental and emotional transformation so quickly. I have been reborn as a confident, self-assured woman, and I am excited to think about what’s to come in my new life."- L. / RealSelf / May 09, 2019

"I Had a Wonderful Experience - It has been a few years, but Dr. Mizgala did my breast reduction and tummy tuck.

Restylane dermal injections take place inside the treatment room at A Woman Plastic Surgeon. A numbing cream is applied for increased patient comfort. The treatment is injected into your skin through a very fine needle and gently massaged so it fills the needed areas. Different Restylane products may be recommended for different areas and can be injected all during one visit.
What to Expect
When your Restylane procedure is done, you can return to your day. Your recovery timeframe will depend on what is being treated so talk to Dr. Mizgala about what to expect. The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this often goes away after several hours. Bruising can appear, but this can usually be concealed with makeup. Most patients will experience significant improvement immediately after the injections, but it often takes 1 – 2 weeks before the final results appear. Restylane injection treatments generally last about a year; however, some patients prefer a touch-up treatment, often combined with BOTOX injections, at about 6 months.
