Dr Capizzi is Wonderful - Charlotte, NC

Dr Capizzi is very knowledgable and friendly. An expert in his field. He took the time to answer and explain all the questions I had prior to my surgery and afterwards. His entire staff is very friendly and I felt like I had become part of a family of people that cared about me and my outcome.

5 out of 5 stars Sientra Breast Implants

24yo, Athletic, Professional Student - Charlotte, NC

Dr. Capizzi and his team at Stillwater are absolutely amazing! From the moment I walked into Stillwater I felt extremely comfortable and could not have asked for a better experience. Dr. Capizzi spent ample time with me during my consultation listening to my expectations for the augmentation, discussing my various options, and addressing all of my questions and concerns. At the conclusion of my appointment I knew without a doubt Dr. Capizzi was the best possible surgeon to perform my breast augmentation. I decided to go with Sientra 425cc shaped texture implant (gummy bear) placed sub-muscular to achieve a full, natural look. These implants are relatively new, but Dr. Capizzi is truly an expert with having placed over 600! Each step along the way from researching to 6 weeks post surgery the team at Stillwater and Dr. Capizzi has far exceeded any expectation I had. I am extremely happy with my results and I would definitely recommend Dr. Capizzi and his team!

32 Year-old, Tall Mom of Two, with Sientra Shaped Implants from Dr. Capizzi - Huntersville, NC

Dr. Capizzi and his entire staff have been wonderful. They are professional and comforting at the same time. I highly recommend him for beast augmentation, especially if you are considering shaped or anatomical implants. He led a preceptorship for 4 other surgeons during my surgery, to teach them his method. Can't say enough good things about Dr. Capizzi!

Love handles. Muffin top. Spare tire. Unfortunately, a clever nickname doesn’t disguise what it really is – abdominal fat. It doesn’t change the fact that it’s incredibly stubborn, either.

There’s actually a science behind why abdominal fat refuses to give. Let’s check it out. The Aging Process:...

Permanently Get Rid of Unwanted Fat with CoolSculpting and HIIT

Moms with young children understand what exercise pros call HIIT, the acronym for High Intensity Interval Training.

Rinse and repeat! In fitness language, HIIT is a training approach that involves alternating high and low activity levels to maximize your workout. At Stillwater, we know...

The Gummy Bear Advance: Dr. Capizzi Predicts Gummy Bear Implants Are the Preferred Choice for Breast Implant Surgery in 2015

It’s no secret. Everyone one knows that Dr. Capizzi is a huge proponent of Gummy Bear breast implants. Of course, “Gummy Bear” is the nickname for fifth-generation, highly cohesive silicone gel breast implants.
