Breast augmentation is a procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts through the use of saline or silicone breast implants. Breast augmentation can, to some degree, lift a sagging bustline, create more symmetrical breasts, and correct a reduction in breast volume following pregnancy. Breast augmentation surgery is the most common procedure performed by Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani. He is a leader in this area of cosmetic surgery.
Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani is recognized as a partner in the advancement of plastic surgery and named as one of the top 25 breast augmentation plastic surgeons in the United States as an appointed member of the physician advisory board for the LEAD program. The LEAD (Leadership, Experience in Augmentation and Development) program is hosted by Mentor Corporation.
In addition, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani has had the privilege of being one of the surgeons in Florida to participate in the CPG or “contour profile gel” implant clinical trial here in the United States. It is an implant that is widely used throughout the world and is now under investigation for FDA approval. The CPG implant features a teardrop shape that can provide patients with more natural-looking breasts. They are often preferred by women who are looking for a gently sloping breast silhouette. The Cohesive Gel Implant is designed in such a way that it mimics this shape. Only select surgeons participating in this study have access to the CPG implants and can determine patient eligibility. Surgical expertise and a commitment to careful patient follow-up were the criteria in choosing the select surgeons. There are approximately sixty surgeons throughout the United States that have been selected to participate in this clinical trial and who have access to the CPG implants, in Florida there are two surgeons.

The Breast Augmentation Procedure
There are several ways your breast augmentation procedure can be performed at our facility near Orlando, Florida. Breast implants can be placed either above or below the chest muscles, and the incisions can be made either around the areola (Peri-Areolar) or under the fold of the breast (Inframmary). The breast augmentation method you and Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani choose depends on factors such as breast size and your level of physical activity. Here are the different breast augmentation procedures Dr. Trevisani will discuss with you during your consultation:
- Periareolar submuscular: During this breast augmentation procedure, the incision is made around the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple), and the breast implants are placed behind the chest muscle.
- Periareolar subglandular: During this breast augmentation procedure, the incision is made around the areola, and the breast implants are placed above the chest muscle.
- Inframmary submuscular: During this breast augmentation procedure, the incision is made in the fold under the breast, and the breast implants are placed behind the chest muscle.
- Inframmary subglandular: During this breast augmentation procedure, the incision is made in the fold under the breast, and the breast implants are placed above the chest muscle.
Breast augmentation usually takes one to two hours to complete and is performed under general anesthesia administered by a highly trained anesthesiologist.
Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani is Keller Funnel™ Certified
Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani is certified to execute breast augmentations with silicone implants using the Keller Funnel™ for an improved patient experience. The Keller Funnel™ allows Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani to employ a unique “No-Touch” approach that prevents the implant from coming into contact with a patient’s skin, thus reducing the potential for contamination from residual bacteria on the skin. This remarkable method also assists with preventing possible trauma to the implant’s outer shell, and is believed to help decrease the chances of capsular contracture. Patients who receive breast implants through the Keller Funnel™ technique also typically require smaller incisions, leading to minimal scarring. This innovative device streamlines the surgical procedure, often leading to reduced time in the operating room, as well.

Breast Augmentation Recovery
You can expect to feel sore for a few days following your breast augmentation procedure, but you should be up and around within 24 to 48 hours. Your stitches will be removed approximately 2 weeks following your surgery, and you can expect your breasts to remain swollen for three to five weeks. Dr. Trevisani will let you know when you can return to daily activity and exercise.

Learn About Breast Enhancement with Dermal Grafting
To provide additional support and ensure satisfactory results for patients with minimal breast tissue due to breast augmentation complications or naturally thin skin, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani offers a unique and innovative technique known as dermal grafting. Depending on your individual needs, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani can use either a biologic or non-biologic graft for this treatment. Commonly used in these types of procedures, Strattice® is a natural product derived from porcine dermis (a biologic material similar to appliances commonly used in surgeries such as heart valve replacement). Another biologic option available at our practice is AlloDerm®, which is a regenerative tissue matrix consisting of acellular human (cadaver) dermis. As a non-biologic alternative, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani can use a surgical mesh, such as GalaFLEX®, which is a supportive monofilament surgical scaffold made up of resorbable and naturally derived material. Ultimately, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani will help you determine which option can achieve the best possible results and further enhance the outcome of your breast augmentation.
