"Decided on 485 cc's under the muscle. I just had my surgery yesterday and so far so good! - I'm 30 years old and I have two kids, I've wanted implants for a long time, after I breastfed my youngest who is now 5 years old, I became very deflated and hated my chest, I was a 36D. I met my surgeon Dr. Mitzuguchi about a month ago and had a virtual consultation where we decided I'd need a lift and I showed him my wish pictures, at my pre op appointment I was able to go in and try on different sizes of implants and we decided on 485 cc's under the muscle, I just had my surgery yesterday and so far so good! I'm very happy with my results so far, and dr. Mitzuguchi and his staff are amazing, very pleasant to work with and very tentative to their patients needs. I'm pretty sore today but it's nothing too bad, I'm on muscle relaxers and pain killers, and I have my first post op visit on Monday!!!"- A. / RealSelf / Jun 12, 2020

Skin tightening surgery, or “lift” procedures like a facelift, remain the most effective method to correct sagging, loose skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening can help if you do not wish to undergo plastic surgery. These nonsurgical and minimally invasive treatments can be performed on most areas of the face and body, including the neck, stomach, arms, and thighs. The best patients for this procedure:
- Are in good overall health
- Are at or near a healthy, stable weight
- Have mild to moderate skin laxity on the face or body
- Have lines or wrinkles on the face or body
- Want to boost the health and appearance of their skin
What to Expect
Before the process begins, the area(s) being treated will be cleaned to remove any makeup, dirt, or oil. Options for local anesthesia can be discussed if you want, but most patients find that any mild discomfort during the laser treatment is short lived and easy to tolerate. After your skin is prepared, a special handpiece will be passed evenly over the skin multiple times for the most effective treatment. The energy released during the treatment prompts the body’s natural healing properties to produce collagen and elastin, which tightens and firms the skin. The procedure can take about 30 – 90 minutes depending on the size and number of areas being treated. After the procedure is over, you will be able to leave and resume your regular activities.
After your nonsurgical skin tightening session, the treated areas may be somewhat numb, red, or swollen. This is typical and you should heal on its own within 2–3 days. During your initial consultation, Dr. Mizuguchi will go over the best ways to care for your skin after your procedure, such as keeping the skin moisturized and protected from sun damage. Most patients will not see visible results immediately after the treatment. Since the collagen and elastin production is a gradual process, you can expect to see the final results of your treatment about 2–6 months after the procedure. However, these results should be long-lasting and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. You may want to schedule multiple treatments to achieve your best possible results. During your consultation, Dr. Mizuguchi will help you create your unique treatment plan based on your needs and goals.
