"Iam in my mid 40's and a mother of one child. I have a very demanding and active job in the medical field. I see woman of all ages complain of the way they look and how their bodies have changed with age, pregnancies and yo- yo dieting. Well I'm one of those women!! Although having one pregnancy it definitely was enough to change my body. I was left with excessive loose skin. Later adding three laparoscopic surgeries, and years of weight loss and weight gain. My tummy became a train wreck!! After years of contemplating surgery I decided it was now time to get my body back. I choose Dr. Mizgala because of her outstanding reputation as a surgeon. I have seen some of her work and talked with patients about their experience and knew she was the Dr. of choice for me. Iam now three months post surgery and feeling wonderful!! I love my new tummy and belly button. I put on a bikini for the first time in over twenty years. My confidence level is higher than it has been in years.

"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
"Excellent experience - It has been a few years but she was very patient and kind and really cared about me. Her staff was also great. I still recommend people to her even though it’s been overs 5 years. JoAnn Proctor"- Anonymous / Vitals / Apr 26, 2019
FaceTite is a great choice to treat loose skin under the chin and neck area. You are an ideal candidate for this procedure if you're experiencing classic signs of aging and wish for an improvement in the neckline and jowl area. A consultation with Dr. Mizgala will be the best way to see if this new technology can help you achieve your goals.
This aesthetic treatment utilizes a minimally invasive technique that involves inserting a very small cannula beneath your skin after local anesthesia is provided. Once the cannula is placed, the temperature can be monitored and controlled via internal and external thermometers to make sure the heat remains at a therapeutic level. The radiofrequency energy that the FaceTite device emits will be effective in melting fat cells and shrink-wrapping the skin.
What to Expect
After a FaceTite procedure, you will want to rest for the duration of your day. You will be sent home wearing a compression garment. You should be able to return to your daily routine by the next day. It can take around three days for any redness or swelling to subside. Patients will usually notice some awesome improvement immediately after their FaceTite treatment. Gradual improvements will continue until 3 – 8 weeks afterward.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does FaceTite cost?
The cost of FaceTite will depend on your condition and goals and will range between $3,000 – $4,000, depending on what is being addressed. During your first visit, Dr. Mizgala will go over all your cosmetic goals and will then be able to determine treatment and costs.
What about a surgical facelift?
A facelift is another treatment to improve facial aging. Liposuction is also an effective treatment for addressing stubborn pockets of fat under the chin that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. However, if you are not ready for a surgical procedure, then FaceTite may be the route for you.
Can BOTOX or fillers help?
Many times, BOTOX or a filler, like Juvéderm, is incorporated with this procedure to attain even more dramatic results. Typically, the FaceTite treatment is performed first and then BOTOX or fillers are used the next day or one week after your FaceTite treatment. It's important to talk to Dr. Mizgala about all your needs and concerns so she can create a customized treated plan that is suited to your cosmetic goals.
How many treatments will I need?
This treatment is a one-time outpatient procedure. Some patients opt for an additional treatment 6 – 12 months later.
How long will my results last?
Your results will continue to improve over the next few months from your initial treatment. Optimal results are enjoyed at 6 – 12 months.
