Part of the body's natural aging process is the slowing of collagen and elastin production in the skin. This leads to more visible lines, creases, and wrinkles, as well as loose skin on the neck, jowls, and chin. To combat these signs of aging, Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery offers FaceTite. This innovative nonsurgical procedure, recommended by Dr. Nana Mizuguchi, uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RAFL) to heat up and dislodge cells, which causes the skin to tighten and encourages the faster production of collagen. It's possible to enjoy a tighter, more youthful facial appearance and fewer wrinkles without the lengthy recovery period of an invasive facelift. We encourage you to schedule a consultation at our Louisville, KY practice to learn more about FaceTite and its benefits.

This is the most skilled plastic surgon around here guaranteed I wouldent evem consider anyone else."- C.W. / Google / Oct 25, 2018
"Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff are wonderful. In July of 2019 I had my consultation appointment. The moment my husband and I walked in, I knew I was in good hands. Kristy and Dr. Mizuguchi answered all of my questions and answered questions I hadn’t even thought of yet. Fast forward to October 2019. I had breast augmentation surgery. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. After breast feeding 3 little ones throughout the past 6 years, it was nice to have a small ‘mom makeo...ver’ to feel beautiful again. He even called later the night of surgery to check on me and see how things were going. I unfortunately had an allergic reaction to either the pain meds or antibiotic but him and his staff were on top of it and had it taken care of right away. Everything has been a 5 star from day one of calling their practice. I highly recommend Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff!"- C.K. / Facebook / Jan 04, 2020
"Dr. Mizuguchi and his entire staff are truly amazing. They all give off positive vibes & really care about the experiences they provide. I am almost 3 weeks post op (breast augmentation). They’ve made me feel at ease with decisions, asking questions, and the overall care they provide. I am beyond happy with my choice in Dr Mizuguchi, and would absolutely recommend him to anyone. He most definitely exceeded my expectations, all while making the entire process so smooth! I honestly couldn’t be any happier with my results and feel so much better about myself!!!"- C.W. / Facebook / Dec 11, 2019
"OMG... I never thought I would be someone who needed this procedure. - After my 3rd and 4th babies were delivered I realized my body would never be the same. I had twins. It was rough on my body. Over the last 18 years, I tried everything to gain core strength. Nothing worked and now I realize why. I had a very large open area in my upper abd. Muscles. I remember taking up pilates and yoga thinking it would help. Both made it even worse. I also did triathlons . I understand the reason I was unable to run after I swam and biked.I understand my body mechanics better. Wow, I wish I had done this years ago. I really did not want to resort to surgery. If others go through the same as me I hope they find a good surgeon . Some of my friends understand what I have been through and some think I I did it for looks. Looking good is a benefit from this surgery. But my core strength was more important.I had started having back injuries that kept getting worse. The more I hurt my back the less I could do physically. It was getting harder to go for walks. Thank you to the staff and doctor for encouraging me to go forward with this procedure. I hope other women who have the same issues seek good surgeons. Having babies is hard on our bodies . I had twins and it was even harder. Pros I finally have answers to my abd. Issues. Cons it is still a surgery."- S. / RealSelf / Dec 10, 2019
"I can’t say enough about Dr. Mizuguchi and everyone in his office. They are friendly and helpful and guide you through your surgery from start to finish. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results of my breast reduction and lift. He did an amazing job and my only regret is that I didn’t do the surgery 10 years ago. He is professional and genuinely a great person, taking the time to put his patient at ease. I would highly recommend a consultation with Dr. Mizuguchi if you are considering having anything done for yourself. My results are wonderful!!"- K.F. / Healthgrades / Dec 09, 2019
FaceTite is generally utilized to treat smaller, more delicate areas, such as the lines that form around the mouth and under the eyes as well as the loose skin on the chin and neck area. You are a good candidate for this procedure if you're experiencing classic signs of aging and want an increase in collagen production for tighter skin. In order to receive this treatment, you should not be pregnant or have had cosmetic injections performed within the last 6 – 8 months. A consultation with Dr. Mizuguchi will better help you learn whether or not you are a candidate for this procedure.
What to Expect
FaceTite uses a minimally invasive technique that involves inserting a very small cannula under your skin after local anesthesia is applied. 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 comfortable level. The radiofrequency energy the FaceTite device emits will be effective in attacking fat cells, and will also cause the skin to contract, stimulating an increase in collagen production. Sessions typically last around 45 minutes per treated area.
After a FaceTite procedure, you will be allowed to return home to rest for the remaining part of the day wearing a compression garment. You should be able to return to your regular routine by the next day. It may take around three days for any redness or swelling to subside. Strenuous activities and exercises should still be avoided for about 1 – 2 weeks following the procedure. You may be able to see some visible results right after your FaceTite treatment. However, as the procedure involves stimulating the collagen process, you will see more gradual improvements for around 3 – 8 weeks afterward. Your results should be long-lasting if you maintain a healthy, stable weight.
