5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Very Pleased with My Breast Augmentation

I very highly recommend Dr. Mizuguchi. I told him in consultation that I wanted to be proportionate without being in bad taste, as I am a healthcare provider. He helped guide me to the implant size that complements my frame as well as conceals a skeletal defect. I am very detail and aesthetics oriented, and I am happy to say that Dr. Mizuguchi's result is beautiful, both technically and aesthetically. As mentioned, I am a healthcare provider in private practice. I would love to have my staff visit Dr. Mizuguchi's office one day to see the competence, efficiency, and empathy of his staff. Furthermore, my anesthesia experience was excellent! Having had a difficult time with a prior sedation, Dr. Mizuguchi and his anesthesiologist took extra care to ensure that my surgery and post-operative course ran very smoothly. My post-operative pain was very well managed, too. I cannot say enough great things about my experience with Dr. Mizuguchi!

23 Year-old Mother of one baby BF, 5'2, 130lbs, 650cc left, 700cc right, silicone, under the muscle :) - Louisville, KY

Dr. Mizuguchi is the best! I found on this site and immediately felt like he would be the one. How staff entirely friendly with me every time and made me feel so welcomed. The waiting time was hardly existent how fast they get you back. Dr. Mizuguchi is one of a kind. He made me feel beautiful just the way I was prior to my surgery and assured me beauty comes the inside ,not the chest. Which I appreciate a surgeon saying who makes his money performing exterior beauty. He also never made me feel rushed, which is something I always look for in any doctor. He was completely honest with the size I was getting and let know the pros ands cons. This doctor is AMAZING. He even called me the night after surgery to see how I was feeling. I would recommend this doctor to anyone!

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Liposuction: Arms, Inner Thighs and Love Handles - Louisville, KY

I don't like writing reviews because I am a private person, but my daughter said that I should because she like my new body and its only been one -month today. If you are considering liposuction of any kind, and you live in Kentucky it is recommended that you have the procedure done at Calobrace & Mizuguchi plastic Surgery Center. This was my second procedure this first time at Liposuction Institute of Louisville, and I was disappointed with the procedure as well as the service. My experience was horrifying because I felt the cannula every time the doctor pushed into my flesh, and yes it was painful. I was given anesthesia but apparently not enough because I was awake. After the procedure, I had to get up and put on thighs with Kotex pad over the incision area and no compression garment. I did not have a follow-up appointment nor did the doctor or nurse called to check on me. Therefore,I never return to that location. However, because of the way I was treated at the other location, I did not know what to expect at Calobrace and Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery Center. My experience with Dr. Mizuguchi was like being on cloud nine the staff treated me with respect, excellent customer service, and updated magazines, large and clean waiting area that projected a warm and friendly environment. The day of my procedure the anesthesiologist came to discuss his role. Prior to the procedure, I was given instructions with the essential information to prepare myself for the procedure. I had a two-week appointment prior to the procedure, and pictures were taken as well as a blood test and EKG. Calobrace and Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery Center took all the required percussions, and I appreciated the doctors and staffs doing an excellent job making me feel as easy and confident about the procedure. After the procedure, I woke up in my compression garment with a nurse in the recovery area to assist me if necessary. The nurse provided aftercare instructions to the responsible adult who accompany me because I was on cloud nine. I am extremely happy. I would recommend the facility to anyone in the surrounding area looking for an excellent Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon. I often read the posts, and that is how I found about Dr.Nana Mizuguchi at Calobrace & Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery Center. Therefore, I made the call had the consultation, procedure, and now I am in love with myself again. Thank you!

I'm Loving My New Figure And Feeling Great!!! - Louisville, KY

I've wanted a breast augmentation for ten years now and after doing my research I felt that now was the time to give it a go. I chose Dr.Mizuguchi because he graduated top of his class and I liked his work on the website. When I meet him I was very impressed and excited. He was very easy to talk to, I told him what I wanted and I feel he was honest and help me to be at ease and happy .Dr.Mizuguchi and his staff was very caring and made me feel comfortable when I was there for surgery. I felt no pain at all not even the IV! They checked on me after I went home and really took care of me.

5 out of 5 stars Fat Transfer

49 Years Old, Fraxel Repair and Full Facial Fat Transfer - Louisville, KY

I chose Dr. Mizuguchi after 2 other PS consults for fraxel, fat transfer and a mini facelift. Dr. M told me that the mini lift would not result in a good long term result since I'd had weight loss surgery and my skin would not respond as others would. No one else picked up on that. He also is very kind and fun and instills confidence in you that he knows exactly what will work for you. I had the fraxel and fat transfer and I am very, very pleased. The staff at Calospa is also top notch, very careful to review the procedures thoroughly, prepare you for surgery and follow you closely afterward. I cannot recommend these folks more highly.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

28 Y/o, No Kids, Breast Lift with Implants - Louisville, KY

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Mizuguchi. He was incredibly helpful and thorough, professional but still humorous at the right times, and the work he did is absolutely phenomenal to me (considering what he had to work with!). He called me the night after surgery, which really made me feel well-cared for. I definitely made the right choice in choosing him for my surgery.
