Having breast augmentation is a very personal choice. Extensively experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon Jon Paul Trevisani, MD and his friendly, professional staff welcome you and your questions as you journey through this decision-making process. The Aesthetic Surgery Centre, founded by Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, is a fully accredited, private, state-of-the-art facility specializing in breast augmentation surgery.
What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation, also known as breast enlargement or breast enhancement, is a procedure that uses breast implants to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. Women choose to have breast augmentation surgery to enhance smaller breasts, lift a sagging bustline, and/or create breasts that are more symmetrical. Breast augmentation can also be performed to correct a reduction in breast volume following pregnancy or for enhancement after breast removal (breast reconstruction).
Great breast augmentation involves artistry in creating the desired aesthetics, symmetry, and balance for natural-looking results. It is the procedure that Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani performs most often, with peers and patients alike considering him an expert in his field. A personal consultation with Dr. Jon will allow you to discuss your expectations and desires. Along with the support of our board-certified anesthesiologist and other highly-skilled personnel, you and Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani will work together to determine the augmentation treatment that best suits you and your lifestyle.
What is the Breast Augmentation Procedure Like?
Breast augmentation surgery presents different alternatives to consider, including determining the best size, shape, and type of breast implants. Dr. Jon offers both saline and silicone breast implants in an array of sizes and shapes, and will discuss which options are best for your needs and goals. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani does not utilize textured implants at his Orlando practice, as recent studies have suggested that use of smooth implants can help maximize the health and safety of breast augmentation patients.
Other consultation topics include where the implants will be placed and where the incisions will be made. There are several ways your procedure can be performed. Breast implants can be placed either above or below the chest muscles, and the incisions can be made either around the areola or under the fold of the breast. The breast augmentation method you and Dr. Jon choose depends on factors such as breast size and your level of physical activity.
Breast implant surgery generally takes one to two hours to complete and will be performed under general anesthesia. It is a delicate surgery requiring an eye for form and proportion. We encourage you to explore our before-and-after patient gallery to see examples of Dr. Jon’s exceptional work.
Keller Funnel™ Certified Plastic Surgeon
To improve the overall patient experience during breast augmentation surgery, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani is certified in performing the Keller Funnel™ technique. This innovative method can help reduce surgery time, minimize scarring, and is believed to help decrease the potential for capsular contracture. Using the Keller Funnel™, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani is able to place the implant without the prosthesis ever coming into contact with the patient’s skin. This “no-touch” approach prevents any potential contamination from residual bacteria on the patient’s skin, and is designed to help protect the integrity of the implants’ outer shells. Compared to traditional methods of placing silicone breast implants, the Keller Funnel™ requires a much smaller incision, which can minimize scarring for qualified patients as well.
