New! No-Touch Silicone Implant Insertion

New! No-Touch Silicone Implant Insertion

breast (5)Our doctors at the Associates in Plastic Surgery are now using the Keller Funnel™ for breast augmentation procedures involving silicone gel implants. The Keller Funnel™ is a device designed by a plastic surgeon to help improve the insertion process of silicone breast implants.

Before the Keller Funnel™ was invented, surgeons would place the silicone implant through an incision by hand. The force required to place the implant in this fashion, could weaken the implant shell as well as cause bruising. Fortunately, now with the Keller Funnel™ system, insertion of the implant is much gentler for the patient and smaller incisions to the breast can be made.

How does it work?

The Keller Funnel™ offers a no-touch delivery technique. First, the tip of this cone-shaped device is placed through the incision in the breast. Once the device is in place, the surgeon quickly and gently positions the implant into place with less force. The Keller Funnel™ is made of nylon with a special, slick inner coating for easy delivery of the implant. The implant never comes into contact with the skin, therefore potentially reducing the risk of infection and capsular contracture.  Another interesting fact is that the Keller Funnel™ is designed for one-time use only, further ensuring a clean breast augmentation procedure.

What are the benefits of using the Keller Funnel™?

  • Improved comfort and faster healing for the patient
  • The funnel is designed to accommodate all sizes of silicone implants
  • No-touch system allows for gentle handling of implants.
  • Unlike the hand delivered method, there is less force on the implant and incision area
  • Reduced risk of infection and contamination
  • Shorter incision lengths that can be placed to minimize the appearance of scaring

    Hands down this is the most amazing plastic surgery office! No haggling and Dr. Jacobs will not perform a surgery if the scar exceeds the benefit. His words exactly which is exactly what I want to know ahead of time not after the surgery is done. Dr. Jacobs is a phenomenal surgeon and I trust him 150%. Felecia his nurse is as wonderful as Dr. Jacobs!!

  • I visited Dr. Johnathan Jacob's Office to see about getting a Lipoma removed from my upper left shoulder. After meeting Dr. Jacob's he discussed with me what needed to be done to remove it. I was very happy with the surgery and how good a surgeon he is. I was very satisfied with the procedure and the outcome. I was happy with his staff also they took good care of me. ???
