The Procedure

The procedure will take place in an accredited operating room located within Dr. Capizzi’s practice in Charlotte, NC.

Dr. Capizzi will advise each client on the least invasive incision point. In doing so he will take into consideration each patient’s choice of implant, personal anatomy and medical records. This is a delicate area where the eye of a true artist ensures a final outcome that is seamless and authentic. Dr. Capizzi’s attention to detail dictates that the surgical site is kept as finite as possible. This reduces the risk of infection and facilitates a speedy recovery. No cumbersome tapes, braces, or bandages are necessary after the procedure. Patients are typically able to resume their regular activities and exercise within 1-2 weeks after the procedure.

The most common point of insertion for the Breast Augmentation occurs under or over the pectoral muscles, where a small ‘pocket’ is created to securely cradle the implant. Another option is an insertion at the areola, in the crease under the breast, or nipple. These options are often chosen for a breast augmentation accompanied by a lift.
