Breast Implants Made Easy With Keller Funnel

Breast implants are made easy with the Keller Funnel, a new device being unveiled at the annual meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons this weekend. Watch this week’s PSC News to find out more.

breastenhancementA new device designed to help doctors insert breast implants during surgery is being unveiled at the annual meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons this weekend, and it may offer several advantages.

The Keller Funnel delivers a breast implant directly into the patient’s body, without the doctor having to touch the implant, which may possibly cut down on trauma to the implant and decrease the risk of infection.

The surgeon places the implant inside this device, which is a cone-shaped funnel. Then, after inserting a small end of the funnel into the breast pocket, the surgeon can squeeze the device and push the implant into place. The Keller Funnel may offer several advantages, including decreasing implant trauma and reducing the chances of contamination because of its no-touch system.

We talked to Dr. Kevin Keller, who had more to say about the benefits of the Keller Funnel, which he helped develop.

Doctors say that over the next year or two, as surgeons gain more experience with the product, its application for breast implant procedures will be better defined. Video plays below.
