If you have been considering breast enhancement, then it’s likely that you have a lot of questions. After all, surgery of this type is a major decision and not one that should be made without a thorough understanding of what is going to take place. While doing your research, you may have come across the Keller Funnel® 2. If you are curious about what this funnel is and what exactly it will be doing during your breast augmentation surgery, allow us to explain.
Understanding the Keller Funnel® 2
Arguably one of the most important parts of a breast augmentation procedure is the actual insertion of the implant. After all, you and your surgeon will both want the implant to properly enter the body and stay in the correct position. The Keller Funnel® 2 helps implants to be inserted with greater ease and efficiency than before.
To use the Keller Funnel® 2, your surgeon will prepare the funnel according to the instructions, ensuring the opening is wide enough to accommodate the size of your implant. In just four simple steps, the implant will be carefully inserted into the body, using a smooth and low-friction technology to provide maximum success.
Essentially, the implant is placed into the prepared funnel. The small end of the funnel is inserted into the incision, and the surgeon gently pushes the implant down the funnel and into the body. It’s simple, easy, widely used and frequently recommended by surgeons.
Benefits of the Keller Funnel® 2
There are a wide range of reasons for surgeons to use the Keller Funnel® 2 during a breast enhancement surgery. Arguably the biggest reason is that it keeps the surgery as sterile as possible, since the implant will never be handled by the surgeon, nor will it rub against your skin during insertion. Additionally, this method allows for a smaller incision, which means your potential for noticeable scarring is decreased.
