Breast Augmentation

Will I Be Able to Breastfeed After Breast Augmentation?

Many young women seeking breast augmentation become concerned about how the procedure could potentially affect their future - if they have children later on, will having breast implants prevent them from being able to breastfeed their newborn? Although this is a common concern, the truth is that if your body was able to produce milk prior to breast augmentation surgery, you should still be capable to do so afterward. A small percentage of all women are simply unable to produce a sufficient amount of milk for a baby, so if a patient has never attempted to breastfeed prior to surgery, it is unknown whether or not she will be able to lactate after breast augmentation. When performed by a skilled and experienced board certified plastic... Continue Reading

Does a Breast Lift Require Breast Implants?

Loose, inelastic skin developing in the breasts is a very common occurrence, and many women begin to feel very self-conscious when the breasts take on a “sagging” appearance. Often due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, genetics, weight loss, or even just the toll that gravity and the natural aging process eventually takes on the body, the effects of excess skin among the breasts can be significantly reduced and improved with breast lift surgery. When this option is considered by women here at the Aesthetic Surgery Centre, one of the most common questions we receive is: “Are breast implants necessary as part of a breast lift?” The answer ultimately depends on one’s individual needs and goals; but, in general, the answer is no. Breast lift surgery and breast... Continue Reading

Breast Lift With Implants: The Latest Plastic Surgery Trend

Breast Augmentation Recovery – What to Expect

If you are considering breast augmentation, it can be helpful to be prepared by understanding what you can expect during the recovery process. Every patient is different, so your recovery period might not be exactly the same as another person, but most patients are able to be up and walking around a bit 24-48 hours after surgery. Based on my patients’ individual progress, I advise them of when it is safe to return to their daily activities and exercise routines. After surgery, I will provide you with specific directions to help you heal properly. These aftercare instructions are extremely important for a successful recovery. A surgical garment (similar to a sports bra) will need to be worn to help reduce swelling and provide support as... Continue Reading

Breast Implant Company Now Enhances Warranty!

Last Friday the trivia question on our Facebook Contest pertained to a particular complication following breast implant surgery known as capsular contracture. Our Facebook Fans did an excellent job explaining this phenomenon! The second part of the question was, “Is capsular contracture covered in a warranty?” The answer is surprisingly YES! First let’s talk a little more about Capsular Contracture. Capsular contracture is a rare occurrence that can sometimes affect women who have breast implants. The condition is characterized by thick tight scar tissue forming around the breast implant and causing a feeling of hardness to the breast. Capsular contracture can also have an effect on breast shape and discomfort may also be evident. The surgical removal of this scar tissue is called Capsulectomy. HOW... Continue Reading

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. The first is that the outer shell or covering of the implant is thicker... Continue Reading

Which Breast Implant Shape is Best?

In Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani’s last blog post, he outlined some important information to consider when selecting the appropriate breast implant size for your breast augmentation procedure. In the second installment of this 2-part blog series, he discusses how to choose the shape that will best create the look you want to achieve: My patients often worry about selecting the right size when it comes to breast implants, but size isn’t the only thing to be considered these days.
