Traveling for Treatment

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 Fillers, Profound Skin Tightening, face/neck lifts, and the popular ‘Mommy Makeover’. As a double-board certified plastic surgeon, he has performed thousands of procedures. This includes difficult breast reconstructions and revisions.

Dr. Capizzi’s practice serves the greater area including Downtown Charlotte. He often consults and treats patients traveling for plastic surgery from other states. Including patients that travel from outside of 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. Recovering patients will receive great attention when finding the right hotel and accommodations.

Initial Consultation

The initial consultation can take place over Skype or in person a few days before the surgery. If there is a need for testing before the procedure, there are a few options. These can be done locally or through the patient’s primary care physician. In these cases, patients will need to arrive a few days before the surgery date for an extra physical consultation to complete the surgical plan.

Airport & Hotel

The local 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. Dilworth is next to downtown where plenty of shopping, dining and entertainment awaits.

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

Our preferred hotel is the newest Kimpton 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 a 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 217 rooms and suites welcome travelers. Lush tufted headboards, soft linens and mood-setting dimmers also bring a distinct sense of comfort. Then there’s the enviable location, 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.

Nursing Care

Patients can book the services of a 24-hour nurse if they are travelling alone or if they would like to have a registered nurse care for them for the first few days. It is a safety need 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 ‘liquid facelift’ using a personalized combination of injectables, are often added on to one’s surgery or added on during the recovery period.
