Can I hang trim on windows over vinyl siding?

We recently had the siding done on our home. It was wood siding that was very neglected. The new siding is double 4 polaris brand if that matters. The contractor removed the trim around the window and trimed with j channel instead of wrapping. We do not like how it looks and are wondering if its possible to add trim around the window Now that the siding is in place? I've searched the internet and have not found any real answers so any advice is greatly appreciated.

Each siding company usually makes a variety of trim that can be used in place of vinyl j-channels to simulate the look of trim.

Here is one example.

Typ you would have wood or vinyl trim installed around the window they the siding installed around the trim. I have not seen anything that installs around the window and on top of the siding!
