Flying in for Plastic Surgery

Dr. Peter Capizzi has earned acclaim from his peers and patients alike for his outstanding results in breast augmentation, facial rejuvenation procedures- such as Botox or Dermal FillersProfound Skin Tightening, face/neck lifts, and the popular Mommy Makeover. As a double-board certified plastic surgeon, he has performed thousands of procedures including difficult breast reconstruction and revision.

While his practice serves the greater area including Downtown Charlotte, he frequently consults and treats patients flying in for plastic surgery from several states, and even patients from outside the country.

Out of town patients will find that booking flights, accommodations, and other travel related needs is easy with the help of our Patient Care Administrator. Great attention has been given to finding the right hotel for recovering patients and arranging any assistance they may need.

Initial Consultation

The initial consultation can be conducted through Skype or by flying in a few days before surgery is scheduled. If any tests will be needed prior to surgery, these can be arranged locally or through the patient’s primary care physician and done prior to arriving. Patients will need to arrive a few days prior to their surgery date for an additional physical consultation to finalize the surgical plan.

Airport & Hotel

The airport servicing the area is the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport. Capizzi, M.D. Cosmetic Surgery and Skincare is located in the Dilworth area of Charlotte, adjacent to downtown where plenty of shopping, dining and entertainment awaits.

Patients can stroll through Historic Dilworth, or to head The Epicenter in the heart of downtown and enjoy dining in great restaurants, bowling at an upscale bowling alley and bar, watch a movie while eating dinner at Studio Movie Grille, or enjoy live music at the piano bar, Howl At The Moon.

The recommended hotel is the newest Kimpton Boutique Hotel, Tryon Park Hotel. Nods to the grandeur of the South are sprinkled throughout the design of the hotel, thanks to polished marble finishes, mahogany woodwork and dramatic crystal chandeliers, all among a sleek backdrop of glass and steel. The introduction to this reimagined southern vibe begins in our chic lobby, where a 3-story crystal light sculpture, grand staircase and a Sweet Tea bar greet guests.

Striking views of Uptown Charlotte through floor-to ceiling windows in our 217 rooms and suites welcome travelers, where lush tufted headboards, soft linens and mood-setting dimmers also bring a distinct sense of comfort. Then there’s the enviable location, just steps from lively recreation at Romare Bearden Park, BB&T Ballpark and the Spectrum Center, and plenty of restaurants, you’ll find plenty to do.

Make your reservation at the Kimpton Boutique Hotel by calling 1-800-KIMPTON and referencing Capizzi MD or the  corporate ID: 786886298.

Patient Stories

Having been through the Capizzi experience, these patients can help you understand the smoothness of the journey.

Nursing care

Patients can book the services of a 24 hour nurse if they are travelling alone or if they would rather have a registered nurse care for them for the first few days. It is a safety requirement that patients have a capable adult with them while they are recovering in the rare event that complications arise.

Patients flying in for surgery will be asked to stay in the area for a specific time, depending on what procedures they have had. Dr. Capizzi can provide a time estimate during the initial consultation. This ranges from a few days up to two weeks.

Skin care center

As patients have some time on their hands, many take advantage the skin care and other non-invasive cosmetic services available at Capizzi, M.D. Having a medical facial or chemical peel, CoolSculpting® or a tailor made liquid facial using a combination of injectables are often added on to one’s surgery or added on during the recovery period.

Getting Started

Traveling for world class cosmetic surgery can be difficult, and we have taken the stress out of booking accommodations and receiving post-surgery medical care. Dr. Capizzi made sure to locate his practice and Certified and Accredited operative facility in a charming area, which makes having cosmetic enhancement almost as restful as having a vacation.
