The Keller Funnel 2 is the next generation implant delivery device that provides exceptionally gentle and quick delivery of all silicone gel implants. It has many potential benefits to the patient, including:
Dr. Revis is certified by Keller Medical and uses the Keller Funnel in every silicone breast implant procedure he performs, as part of his ongoing effort to continuously improve surgical results for his patients. He also participates in educational events speaking about, teaching and demonstrating the Keller Funnel to his peers.
What is the Keller Funnel 2 and how is it used?
The Keller Funnel 2 is a device intended to assist with the delivery of pre-filled implants by providing a low friction shell-tissue interface during implant insertion using a no-touch technique to prevent contamination. Cone shaped and made of nylon, the hydrophilic coating inside the funnel becomes extremely slippery when submerged in a saline or sterile solution.
Once the implant is placed inside the funnel, the surgeon places the small distal end into the prepared breast pocket and, using a pushing/squeezing motion, easily propels the implant into place.
The Keller Funnel 2 can be used with all types of silicone breast implants, as well as in transaxial, periareolar and mammary fold insertion procedures.
