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.

The Procedure:

The procedure will take place in Dr.Capizzi’s office located in Charlotte, NC. He 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.

The most typical 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 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 lift.
