Keller Funnel® Technique for Silicone Breast Implant Placement

Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons Serving Denver & Lone Tree, Colorado

Keller Funnel®2 allows our surgeons to place silicone implants using a no-touch or minimal-touch technique depending on whether you have selected round or anatomical shaped implants. 

How the Simple Design of the Keller Funnel Works

Designed for surgeons by a surgeon, the Keller Funnel 2 allows the surgeon to place the implant into the surgical pocket with less friction than traditional methods. Its simple design is composed of a flexible, clear polymeric film that is surfaced with a hydrophilic coating, which becomes exceptionally slippery when submerged in a sterile solution.

The Keller Funnel’s cone shape allows the breast implant to slip easily into the surgical pocket for precise implant placement. The surgeon can completely visualize and control the delivery of the implant. In a four-step process, the surgeon prepares and uses the Keller Funnel to gently slide the implant into place.

The Patient Benefits of Using the Keller Funnel

The introduction of the Keller Funnel helped to refine breast augmentation surgery. Its many benefits for our patients include:

  • The ability to use shorter incision lengths for implant placement
  • Improved patient comfort following surgery
  • Quicker healing times for breast augmentation patients
  • Increased protection against infection with the no-touch and minimal-touch techniques
  • A wider range of choices for incision placement
  • Reduced force on the breast implant
  • Less trauma to the tissue surrounding the implant
