5 out of 5 stars Chin Liposuction

Best Money Ever Spent! - Metairie, LA

I knew Dr. Mizgala was the one within seconds of meeting her, and after the consultation I assured her she would be my new bestfriend! On 12/5/16 she performed smart lipo on my chin. The procedure was done in her office with a nurse, and I was awake for the entire procedure. I was nervous about being conscious during but I was surpisingly super relaxed and I didn't experience a bit of pain. I had three microscopic incisions that I didn't feel, and was completely numb with local anesthesia. The entire procedure took approximately 1 hr, and I was able to walk out right after. From the moment I went in the office the day of surgery, up to today, 8 days later, I have yet to feel a bit of pain, actually I held a conversation with dr. Mizgala and the nurse the whole time during the procedure cracking jokes and expressing to her how relaxed I was, even comparing it to a massage but better, saying it was the best experience. Dr Mizgala called me from her personal cell phone for several days after along with her staff to follow up, and now we even text! (I told her we would be best friends). Over all I honestly couldn't be happier with my results and I know they will only get better from here!

Special Thanks to Dr. Cynthia Mizgala and Her Team!

What else can I say about Dr. Cynthia Mizgala besides she is devoted to her work and is a perfectionist. I am so glad of my decision to use her in this delicate procedure. No regrets in choosing Dr. Cynthia Mizgala as my doctor. She has the human touch and gentle soul. Sincerely, Tina Lee

Gummy Bear Breast Implants and Tummy Tuck - Very Little Pain! - Metairie, LA

I cannot say enough good things about my surgeon, Dr. Mizgala. The incisions are tiny & you can tell she really took her time to make sure the scars are minimal. There was very little post op pain and swelling & I completely attribute this to her excellent surgical skills. She took her time to explain the surgery to me & what to expect post op. She is very down to earth & listened to all my concerns. As a female, she understood the body image I wanted to achieve. I am so glad that I trusted her to do my surgery!

Badly in Need of a Circumferential Abdominoplasty - Metairie, LA

I went in as a patient and came out with a "God Sent! Best Surgeon!" and my angel. Truly, Dr, Mizgala is the best Plastic Surgeon & MediSpa doctor in the Metairie, Louisiana area. She cares about her patient from the beginning {You notice I did not say to the end} that's because she is with you for the long term. She's that great! Linda & Fanny Mac. PROMISES OF THE BEST DOCTOR: Known from my personal experiences...................... She knows the plans she have for you, " says Linda and Fanny Mac. "They are the plans to keep you healthy and safe in providing you a peace of mind so that you will be proud of your end results. Linda & Fanny Mac.

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

33 Years Old, No Kids, and Bye Bye Belly Fat!! - Metairie, LA

Her office manager Patty is soooooo awesome, she runs that office, she is who you check in with, make your payments too, and scheduled all of your visits and surgery dates. She is so upbeat and excited for any person who comes in that office. Hands down she was a major part in why i even booked my consultation. Dr. Mizgala is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, my consultation was amazing, my husband was with me and Dr. Mizgala came in and sat beside me and took her time explaining everything to the both of us. She even showed me and my husband both of the machines she uses,(Vaser and Smart-Lipo MPX), so we could better grasp why she prefers both. There was no question unanswered and she had soo many pictures to show of her "actual" work. She opened her book and we went through all of her pictured procedures. Her staff is very friendly and her office has a spa like type feel where they offer "Red Spa" services through her as well. When it came time for my procedure, Dr. Mizgala more than made me comfortable, she is just so down to earth, that you immediately feel at ease with her. She only books "ONE" person per day to do her procedure, you are her only priority and you never feel rushed, expect to be at her office all day, which to me was good, because that meant she took her time. When i did my follow-up appointments and care, It was all handled by Dr. Mizgala not her nurse or anyone else. When i was home with my drains her staff would call me daily sometimes more than once a day to check on me and see how much i was draining. I am more than pleased thus far with Dr. Mizgala's work, her staff, and customer service, i would at this point in time not hesitate to recommend her to anyone or to return to her myself if need be in the future.

I Have Botox and Have Had All of the Fillers Offered over the Last 7 Years - Metaire, LA

I rated Dr.Mizgala as I did because that is 100% truth. Out of the many offices I have visited, this office has it all. When it comes to making changes on ones face, you must be completely confident in the doctor. Dr. Mizgala does wonderful work. She offers a wide array of treatments suitable to each patient's individual needs and finances. There are so many things that can be done to erase years off of our face without undergoing an expensive surgery that would require missing work due to recovery time. Certainly it would be to Dr. Mizgala's benefit to perform surgery on everyone, but she is very understanding when it comes to the realization that not all of us can afford to have that one-time fix. I go in for what I call my maintenance injections and that has worked out beautifully for me over the last 7 years. The staff is always friendly and I feel as though I get the same treatment and courtesy as the high-dollar patients get. If you ever went to this office, you wouldn't be fearful of the "what-ifs". Dr. Mizgala is wonderful with filling those unsightly lines that we all hate. I am very fearful of needles, yet the way she injects is truly painless. I absolutely love the fact that many times throughout the year this office offers 2 for 1 purchases on the latest and the greatest fillers on the market which makes it even more affordable to instantly look years younger without any down time. I recommend Dr. Mizgala to anyone who is ready to look their best. She is the nicest doctor I have ever met. I am never rushed and I always feel and look incredible whenever I leave. This office also offers spray tanning, facials and skin care products. Another big plus is that there is a VIP program for us loyal customers. The VIP program allows me to receive an additional savings on injections of all types as well as skin care products. This has been a huge money savings for me. It would be impossible to write a review about everything I like and why I so strongly recommend Dr. Mizgala and her staff because there are so very many things that I truly love about this very special doctor. She's not just a doctor, she's a heartfelt caring friend.
