What Breast Implants To Choose – Saline or Silicone?

Last Friday the first trivia question was posted on our Facebook Page to start off the “Feeling Fit and Fabulous” Contest and plenty of responses came flooding! The question was ‘When considering breast implants would you choose Saline or Silicone, and tell us why?’ At the Aesthetic Surgery Centre by Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, patients are choosing silicone over saline implants. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani attributes this propensity for silicone breast implants to a more natural look and feel of the new generation of implants, which now use a cohesive silicone gel. “There are two main differences between the new generation of silicone implants and the silicone implants of the past.

Why is Board Certification Important?

You’ve probably heard that when having cosmetic surgery it is important to have a plastic surgeon who is board certified. But what does board certification really mean? Why is it so important?

This helps patients to be sure that their doctor is knowledgeable and skilled in the area of medicine they specialize in. Aesthetic plastic surgeons should be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the only organization recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) for certifying plastic surgeons.

How to Choose the Right Plastic Surgeon

When considering plastic surgery, finding the surgeon who you are most comfortable with is important. You want to feel confident in his or her skill, as well. Before moving forward with any cosmetic surgery, I always recommend for patients to conduct thorough research. Talk to friends and family members who have had a positive experience with a surgeon, and look online for doctors in your area (or beyond, if you’re willing and able to travel). Once you’ve selected a few surgeons, look into each physician’s education, experience, and professional background. Review before and after photos, read through patient reviews and testimonials, and don’t forget to check the doctor’s board certification. Plastic surgeons should always be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Schedule a... Continue Reading

What Does a Plastic Surgeon’s Re-certification Mean for Patients?

Although some physicians are not required to do so, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, explains why it is important for plastic surgeons to renew their board certifications every ten years. If you have been considering plastic surgery, you have probably realized board certification is an important credential to look for when researching doctors. Although this certification is extremely important to consider, knowing when the plastic surgeon was certified is another important fact of which to be aware. The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) has consistently recognized the American Board of Plastic Surgery as the only medical sub-specialty board responsible for the certification and training of plastic and reconstructive surgeons. Board certification must be renewed every ten years to maintain the highest... Continue Reading
