The Keller Funnel and Breast Augmentation

The latest in Breast Implant Surgery.

The Keller Funnel is a soft clear funnel-shaped device that is used to assist in placing the Breast Implant into the breast pocket.

The Keller Funnel is a device that has revolutionised Breast Augmentation Surgery and has many advantages over placing the implant into the body by hand only.

Some of the benefits include:

  1. A smaller incision. A smaller scar is always an advantage and improves the overall cosmetic outcome. The Keller Funnel is coated with a substance that allows the implant to glide into position.
  2. Protection of the implant. The Keller Funnel reduces trauma to the implant and reduces the risk of insertion damage which may increase the longevity of the implant.
  3. Less infection risk. Eliminating skin contact during insertion reduces bacterial load and infection risk. Reducing excessive manual handling also reduces infection risk.
  4. Less capsular contraction. Lessen the rate of hardening (capsular contraction) by a combination of less infection, less inflammation, and less implant trauma will improve cosmetic results long term.
