Breast augmentation surgery has a huge market. Millions of women around the world are getting their breasts enhanced in one way or the other to look more beautiful and to achieve the self-image they always wanted. Surgeons and researchers have always been on a hunt for newer techniques and technologies that improve the plastic surgery experiences for their clients.
One such instrument that has monumentally helped improve the breast surgeries is called Keller Funnel. It is an FDA-approved device that helps the surgeon place silicone gel implants effectively. It was invented by Dr. Jason Pozner and has been available in the market for use since 2009, when it was approved by FDA.
To use the device, the surgeon uses the tip of the soft, conical-shaped nylon device incision to place the pre-filled implant through an incision. Afterwards, a gentle squeezing motion is used to coax the implant via a funnel into the breast pocket. It is typically used for silicone gel breast implants.
Here are the five ways how using the Keller Funnel has improved the delivery of silicone breast implants.
By using the funnel, the doctor is able to make smaller incisions. These result in the faster recovery phase and smaller post-surgical scars. It is definitely a win-win situation as the downtime after the surgery is lessened and the scar is also nearly missing. Chances of other incisions related complications are also reduced.
By using the Keller Funnel, a no-touch sterile approach is used during the procedure. It minimizes the risk of contamination of the implant shell and results in a lesser chance of patient catching an infection. It reduces the risk of capsular contracture as well.
The trauma caused to the breast tissue without using Keller Funnel is much greater than if it is used. Any surgery causes trauma to the body, which reacts to it. By reducing the trauma, it significantly lowers the post-operative pain experienced by the patients and prompts much faster healing than in case of normal breast augmentation.
The slippery coating of the funnel allows a minimal amount of pressure to be used while positioning and placing the breast implant. It greatly reduces the risk of implant rupture in the future and prolongs the life of the implant. Mishandling of the transplant can reduce its effective life by years.
The Keller Funnel generally makes the entire surgical procedure quick which is most definitely a great thing. Going by the more traditional route, it would take longer to perform the same breast augmentation.
So if you are considering getting a breast augmentation, discuss the possibility of using the Keller Funnel with your doctor. It may end up reducing the recovery period and adding longer life to your transplants.
