THE KELLER FUNNEL™: SHORT INCISION BREAST AUGMENTATION

The Keller Funnel™ is a soft, sterile device made of nylon that plastic surgeons use to deliver silicone gel breast implants into the pocket created for an augmentation or reconstruction procedure. It was launched in 2009 and its addition to breast surgery has enabled the use of a shorter incision due to the ease with which the silicone gel implant can be introduced into the pocket.

SHORT INCISION BREAST AUGMENTATION
The Keller Funnel™

Shorter incisions are possible because of the mechanical advantage provided by the lubricated funnel during implant insertion. The Keller Funnel™ gives surgeons the ability to place the incision in a variety of locations including: periareolar (around the nipple), inframammary (under the breast fold), and axillary(under the arm) with less visibility. Longer incisions that might be required for larger size implants can be shortened when the Keller Funnel™ is used.

During your consultation, Dr. Forley will discuss the advantages of using the Keller Funnel™ and how it provides the following benefits:

  • Shorter incision lengths
  • No touch technique in which the implant does not come in contact with the skin
  • More choices for incision placement
  • Reduced force on the implant and incision
