The Keller Funnel for Silicone Gel Implant Delivery

Today was truly a great day of cases. As the breast augmentation, revision breast augmentation, and capsular contracture surgery practice grows, I continually look for ways to improve patient outcomes, reduce patient recovery time, reduce incision length, and prevent capsular contracture

I have found that the Keller Funnel facilitates delivery of silicone gel implants through smaller incisions and allows me to employ a no-touch delivery technique whereby the gel implant does not come into contact with the nipple areola complex or the axillary skin when placing implants. I found that the Keller Funnel greatly facilitated today’s cases and I will use it for the breast augmentation cases later in the week.

I anticipate that the no-touch delivery technique is one method to further reduce the prevalence and incidence of capsular contracture. I look forward to continued success with is device.
