Keller Funnel for Improved Delivery
of Silicone Gel Implants

An alternative for gel implant augmentation that's better for your body! Every decision you make surrounding your breast augmentation surgery is important — starting with should I use saline or silicone gel implants? Women all around the world are considering the natural look and feel of silicone implants.

The Keller Funnel™ is a soft, sterile device made of nylon that surgeons use to deliver silicone gel implants easily in to the breast pocket during an augmentation or reconstruction procedure. The Funnel was introduced to surgeons in 2009, shortly after silicone gels were FDA-approved and re-entered the U.S. market. Women and their surgeons have increasingly selected silicone gels for their natural look and feel, and today, according to the annual report provided by the American Society of Plastic Surgery, more silicone gels procedures are performed than saline.

The Funnel allows surgeons to make smaller incisions, similar to those used in saline implant procedures. Depending on a woman’s anatomy, the delivery tool also gives doctors the ability to place the incision in a variety of locations including: periareolar (around the nipple), inframammary (under the breast fold) and transaxial (under the arm).

According to a recent survey conducted among surgeons with experience using the Funnel:
91% reported that use of the Funnel reduces incision lengths
92% of physicians using the Funnel believe use of the Funnel reduces force on the implant shell

Other benefits attractive to both surgeons and patients like you include a reduced force of the implant shell and the ability for doctors to use a no-touch technique during the procedure.
