- Breast Augmentation -
Breast augmentation, a procedure to increase breast volume and enhance the overall breast appearance, is Dr. Capizzi’s core specialty as a plastic surgeon. It is one of the most popular operations for women, as breast augmentation is the ideal choice for combatting the loss of breast fullness and symmetry due to common life changes such as aging or pregnancy.
Dr. Capizzi has built a trusted reputation as the best breast augmentation surgeon in the state, due to his lifelong dedication to aesthetic perfection and finely honed surgical skill after having done over 7,000 implant procedures, coupled with a willingness to cater exclusively to each individual woman’s ideal result rather than generic trends. Based on her unique physique, medical history and lifestyle, each outcome is customized to the client’s express wishes, producing a silhouette that is natural, beautiful and supple with minimal recovery time and healing. Many of Dr. Capizzi’s patients consider him the top choice when looking for a breast augmentation.
Types of Breast Implants
Choosing the right type of breast implant for your body and lifestyle requires an in-depth consultation with Dr. Capizzi, who will carefully guide you in making the best selection, answering all your questions and concerns along the way. Your safety, comfort and happiness with your results are his number one priorities.
He offers the most attractive and reliable silicone breast implants on the market today, and uses implants available from all 3 manufacturers- Allergan, Sientra, and Mentor. After evaluating both 4th and 5th generation gel implants as well as the Saline implants on the market today, Dr. Capizzi feels that the 5th generation gel implants (highly cohesive gummy bear), are the safest and best breast implants available. Silicone implants are filled prior to insertion with a robust, gelatinous fluid that resembles organic breast tissue. All implants have been rigorously tested and approved by the FDA.
Additionally, Dr. Capizzi was chosen as an FDA co-investigator for the latest breakthrough in breast augmentation innovation, the “Gummy Bear” implant. With over 100 shapes and sizes available to complement any physique, the Gummy Bear offers proven stability and versatility that is revolutionizing breast augmentation and beyond. Dr. Capizzi offers the most comprehensive breast care in the region, from consultation to recovery.
Gummy Bear Implants
“The Gummy Bear” is the affectionate nickname given to the newest type of silicone breast implant on the market, one that has quickly become the gold standard for surgeons and patients alike. Approved by the FDA in 2013, this superior fifth generation gel implant is remarkable for its tapered, tear-drop shape and supple, cohesive texture, both of which perfectly mimic the natural contour and feel of the female breast.

Breast Augmentation Procedure
Dr. Capizzi will advise each client on the least invasive and most appropriate incision point, taking into consideration the patient’s choice of implant, personal anatomy and medical records. This is a delicate area where the eye of a true artist must prevail to ensure a final outcome that is seamless and authentic. Dr. Capizzi’s meticulous attention to detail dictates that the surgical site is kept as finite as possible, reducing the risk of infection and facilitating a speedy recovery, usually within a few days. Patients are generally able to resume their regular activities and exercise within 1-2 weeks after the procedure, as no cumbersome tapes, braces or bandages are required, thanks to Dr. Capizzi’s consummate expertise.
The most typical point of insertion occurs under or over the pectoral muscles, where a small ‘pocket’ is created to securely cradle the implant. Another viable option is an insertion at the areola, in the crease under the breast, or nipple, a choice that often complements a breast augmentation accompanied by a breast lift. Additionally, Dr. Capizzi will perform an insertion via the armpit (transaxillary), based on his analysis of the patient’s needs and wishes.
