Consultation appointments are a great way to chat with our knowledgeable team. Then our providers recommend services based on each patient’s unique goals.
Be prepared to discuss your goals when you come to Capizzi, MD for your consultation. A member of our team will take photographs for your medical record and you will be able to discuss your options with Dr. Peter Capizzi. He will work with his dedicated team of providers to recommend a treatment plan that will work best for your lifestyle and goals.
During a Treatment
Our providers perform non-surgical body contouring treatments in the office without the use of general anesthesia. Depending on your treatment, the duration spent in the office can be as little as an hour. You will be able to drive yourself home after these procedures. Profound Skin Tightening requires numbing with lidocaine to make you comfortable during your treatment. We also provide Pro-Nox, a patient-controlled nitrous oxide inhalant that can help provide instant relaxation and pain relief. COOLSCULPTING® typically requires more time depending on the number of cycles received in an appointment (can be 90 minutes up to 6 hours). Our Wellness & Weight Loss Program appointments usually last about an hour and most of the work consists of following a prescribed diet and exercise regimen.
Non-Surgical vs. Surgical Results
Non-surgical treatments can be a great option for many, and generally work better for people who have reached a healthy body weight. Consider COOLSCULPTING®, which is great for freezing stubborn fat from hard-to-access areas. It may not require surgery but it is not suited for removing larger volumes of fat. In addition, non-surgical results typically take a bit of time to show up. Our providers will always keep your goals and desires front of mind when creating your treatment plan. The will consider and discuss both surgical and non-surgical options
Non-Surgical Body Contouring Treatment Recovery

If you have any concerns during your recovery, you should call our office at 704-655-8988 to speak with a nurse directly.
