Smaller Breast Augmentation Scars at Orlando Plastic Surgery Practice

Share Article

The latest statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) shows breast augmentation was the most popular procedure in 2010, with more than 318,000 procedures performed. Nearly 20% of those procedures now utilize a cutting-edge technology known as the Keller Funnel™, which Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Orlando, FL, says enables him to use smaller incisions for silicone breast implants. He adds that the smaller incisions are similar to those used with saline implants, which also results in less bruising and post-operative discomfort for his breast augmentation patients.

Orlando, FL Plastic Surgeon Uses Innovative Technology for Smaller Scars

I find comfort in knowing that I am providing my patients with an increasingly safe and effective procedure.

Breast augmentation is the most common procedure in the U. S. according to the latest study from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). Jon Paul Trevisani, MD, FACS is able to perform breast augmentation procedures with smaller scars at his Orlando plastic surgery practice due in part to the innovative Keller Funnel™, which is a technologically advanced breast implant delivery device. When placing the breast implant Dr. Jon Trevisani says the cone-shaped, nylon device has a special interior coating that allows him to propel the silicone gel into the breast with less force, thus eliminating the need for larger incisions. The innovative procedure now accounts for nearly 20% of all breast augmentations performed in the U. S. [1]. Due to the vast number of breast augmentation procedures Dr. Jon Trevisani performs with the Keller Funnel™, he has been certified by Keller Medical, Inc.

As is true of any cosmetic enhancement procedure, scarring can have a significant impact on patient satisfaction with a breast augmentation procedure. Dr. Jon Trevisani says the Keller Funnel™ is extremely effective at limiting the amount of scarring because of the cone-shape and hydrophilic interior coating that allows him to propel an implant into place with minimal pressure. He adds that patients are often concerned with additional costs associated with an innovative device such as this. “The Keller Funnel™ is a unique device with added patient benefits. However, there is no added expense for my patients. This is a standard practice at my office, and I find comfort in knowing that I am providing my patients with an increasingly safe and effective procedure.”    

Additionally, Dr. Jon Trevisani says the funnel’s design results in less bruising and discomfort for patients after the procedure, and employs a no-touch technique to eliminate the likelihood of contamination. Ultimately, Dr. Jon Trevisani says the Keller Funnel™ provides him with a better way to surpass patient expectations while preserving the greatest respect for patient safety.
