Dr. Rocco Piazza’s commitment to the community goes beyond providing cosmetic plastic surgery to Austin residents. Dr. Piazza was raised in this community, and he’s committed to helping it thrive. Dr. Piazza and our staff frequently give their health and beauty skills, as well as their personal talents, to give back to the area that has given so much to them. Take a look at just of few of the community outreach events we’ve participated in lately.
At The Piazza Center, we believe that beautiful surgical results are enhanced by leading a healthy lifestyle. Our aim is to help you achieve your cosmetic goals and desires. If you like what you see and are ready to meet with our team in person, you can request a consultation online, or call our office at (512) 288-8200.
Sponsors of the 14th Annual Texas Advocacy Project’s Black and White Ball
Once again, The Piazza Center was proud to be a sponsor of the Texas Advocacy Project’s Black and White Ball. This event celebrates the survivors of abuse as well as those who have committed to ending personal violence. We support TAP’s 38 years of service to our community by providing free legal solutions to end power-based abuse in Texas. At The Piazza Center, we have a similar goal. We firmly believe in empowering all patients to live confidently. We are honored to be a sponsor of the 14th Annual Black and White Ball, TAP’s largest fundraiser.
The Piazza Center is Proud to be a Bronze Sponsor of RED Arena Round Up Event
The Piazza Center is proud to support local causes, and this year we are a Bronze Sponsor of the 10th annual RED Arena Round-Up, a two-day event where riders of all abilities show their horse-riding skills at Dripping Springs Ranch Park. RED Arena offers support to children and adults with special needs by empowering them through horse-assisted therapies, therapeutic riding lessons, horse camp, family support, job-skills training programs and mental health services.
Dr. Piazza’s 7-year-old nephew attends therapy at RED Arena, so this is a cause close to Dr. Rocco Piazza’s heart. “We love that the RED Arena’s mission is to empower others,” says Dr. Piazza. “We firmly believe in the same mission, empowering our patients to live confidently.”
The Texas Society of Plastic Surgery Donation Effort
The Piazza Center in Austin is doing our part to keep Texas safe!
Last week Dr. Piazza teamed up with The Texas Society of Plastic Surgery and the Austin Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons to donate over 10,000 gloves, hundreds of masks, and surgical gowns to help keep doctors on the front lines safe. Dr. Piazza and Dr. Antunes scoured their shelves to donate over 800 gloves and anti-viral wipes.
Our mission during this time is to keep our patients safe and to contribute to our global community in any way that we can. We are so proud to have an incredibly strong Team of Texas Doctors working together to keep Texas safe.
Thank you @synergyplasticsurgery and Gov. Gregg Abbott for heading up this operation.
Supporting Austin Smiles
The Piazza Center is proud to be a Pearl Sponsor for the 33rd annual Wish Upon a Smile Gala! This annual event is presented by Austin Smiles to raise funds to support mission trips to Latin America to help children and their families who cannot afford treatment to repair a cleft lip/ cleft palate. This summer, Dr. Piazza traveled to Guatemala with three other Austin plastic surgeons who, together, performed 48 life-changing surgeries for children in need!
This cause is very special to our practice, and we are honored to be able to support such a worthy cause!
Proud Sponsors of the Texas Advocacy Project’s Black and White Ball
The Piazza Center is proud to be a sponsor of the Texas Advocacy Project’s 2019 Black and White Ball. We are proud to be able to support the Texas Advocacy Project as they help to bring about lasting change for fellow Texans via free legal services for victims of domestic violence and assault. We love that this organization is actively working toward a day when all Texans live safely in hope, not fear. They do this by creating confidence and empowering victims to have a voice. We firmly believe in a similar mission, empowering our patients to live confidently. We are honored to be the Red Carpet Sponsor and Swag Sponsor of the 13th Annual Black and White Ball, TAP’s largest fundraiser.
Dr. Piazza Joins Austin Smiles in Guatemala to Improve Children’s Lives
Dr. Piazza, in partnership with Austin Smiles, traveled to Guatemala to help treat children with cleft palates and cleft lips. He joined his friends and fellow Austin plastic surgeons, Dr. Mahlon Kerr, Dr. Lauren Crawford and Dr. Cameron Craven. Thanks to volunteers like these and donations from third party donations, families obtain free health services or surgical care.
During this weeklong trip, 81 children were evaluated, and the doctors performed 48 successful operations on children in need!
The great work that Austin Smiles does has been a lifelong passion for Dr. Piazza. ”When I was 8 years old, I dreamed of being able to help children feel normal, be accepted, and have an opportunity to live without judgment. When I was 12 years old, I saw photographs of the life-changing work performed by Austin Smiles. That ignited the fire inside of me to become a plastic & reconstructive surgeon. From that moment, I committed to an 18-year educational journey to become that guy.”
These mission trips are life-changing not only for the patients we serve, but for the plastic surgeons and nurses who donate their time and skills to serve people in need. The Piazza Center is so grateful for the opportunity to partner with Austin Smiles to help touch and change so many lives.
Dr. Antunes Provides Needed Surgical Care for the Children of Antigua and Guatemala
Dr. Marcelo Antunes, in partnership with Medical Missions for Children and HUGS – Help Us Give Smiles, recently traveled to Antigua and Guatemala to help treat children with microtia (a birth defect that causes an underdeveloped ear) to help improve their appearance and restore their confidence and to follow up with patients they cared for in previous years.
Dr. Antunes has been traveling to both countries each year for the last 10 years to help provide much-needed surgical and medical care to children in need. He has also traveled to the Philippines, Vietnam, Ecuador and Peru for similar philanthropic mission trips.
During his recent weeklong trip to Guatemala, Dr. Antunes performed nearly 60 procedures!
Dr. Antunes and Dr. Piazza both enjoy giving back to their community and supporting those in need around the world.
Art Bra Austin 2019
For the fifth year in a row, The Piazza Center sponsored a bra for the Art Bra Austin! This annual event is presented by the Breast Cancer Resource Center to raise funds to support local women affected by breast cancer, a cause that is and will always be near and dear to our hearts. Once again, we partnered with Cindy Miller Lopez to create a special bra to honor the women who choose us as their partners for breast reconstruction after breast cancer.
Piazza Center for Plastic Surgery put on its fifth annual Cocktails & Curiosity Gala on May 10, raising funds for the Breast Cancer Resource Center (BCRC). At the scenic Headwaters Central in Dripping Springs, guests enjoyed refreshing cocktails, bites from Rocco’s Grill, and entertainment by jazz crooner Ken Slavin, along with more than $10,000 in raffle prizes. The event generated $12,105 in donations for BCRC!
On April 21, 2016, plastic surgeon, Rocco Piazza, M.D., of The Piazza Center, presented a check for $6,000 to the Breast Cancer Resource Centers (BCRC) of Texas. The funds were raised during his fundraising event, Cocktails & Curiosity. Pictured, left to right, are Phyllis Rose (Director of Volunteer Services, BCRC), Rocco Piazza, M.D., F.A.C.S. (Piazza Center for Plastic Surgery and Advanced Skin Care), and Ray Anne Evans (Executive Director, BCRC). Published in the Austin Business Journal, June 3rd, 2016.
Dr. Piazza was honored to serve on the panel of judges for the Miss Austin Texas Pageant for 2014. The winner was Melissa Novak, and the Miss Teen Austin crown went to Savy Escobar. Dr. Piazza was thrilled to be a part of this fun event celebrating the inner and outer beauty of these hard-working young women.
Dr. Piazza commissioned the creation of a beautiful glass-beaded bra that was auctioned off at a charity event to benefit the Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas. This bra titled “Texas Brave” was created out of love to honor the brave women who choose us as their partners during their reconstructive process. One of our past patients, Jana, modeled the beautiful creation in the Art Bra runway event at the Austin Music Hall.
Also in support of the Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas, our staff participated in the organization’s first Locally Pink fundraising campaign. We decked ourselves and our office out in pink, and generated more than $2500 in donations for the cause.
In 2013, The Piazza Center staff participated in a fun and grueling workout event through Barbells for Boobs, a nonprofit that helps fund breast cancer detection services for those in our community who don’t qualify for assistance elsewhere. You won’t find many plastic surgeons in Austin who are as dedicated to health and fitness as Dr. Piazza, so this was right up his alley. The Combine, a CrossFit center in Austin helped whip the participants into shape and whip up some donations for patients in need.
