Keller Funnel™ in Arizona

Dr. Aldo Guerra uses the Keller Funnel™, the latest and most advanced
technology in breast augmentation surgery in Scottsdale.

The Keller Funnel™ and silicone gel breast implants in Arizona.

The Keller Funnel™ is a device Dr. Aldo Guerra, a noted Phoenix plastic surgeon, uses to facilitate the placement of silicone gel breast implants during breast augmentation and breast lift surgery. After using this device, he has found that placing breast implants has become much easier when compared to other techniques he has used in the past. The funnel reduces the amount of work for the surgeon and, importantly, reduces the pressure applied on the outer silicone shell of the breast implant. Uneven or forceful application of pressure is something to be avoided when placing silicone breast implants because this can weaken the outer shell over time. In addition, the funnel reduces the length of the incision when compared to other techniques of placement.

The Keller Funnel™ helps reduce the length of the incision.

The Keller Funnel™ can be utilized with all of the popular incisions which are regularly used for silicone gel breast implant placement. Each funnel is designed to be use once per patient. The funnel is used after the operating surgeon has created the incision and developed a pocket for the breast implant. When the plastic surgeon is ready to place the silicone implant, he will place the silicone breast implant inside the funnel and gently apply pressure to advance the breast implant forward.

The "no-touch" silicone breast implant insertion technique.

The funnel is tapered and the width of the opening can be adjusted depending on the size of the breast implant desired by the patient. The bigger the breast implant, the larger the size of the taper at the end of the funnel. Once the implant is in place, then the surgeon places the small funnelled end into the incision and towards the pocket. A gentle squeeze is performed and the breast implant is advanced into the pocket. The funnel creates a uniform amount of pressure and this reduces trauma to the patient’s and breast implant shell. Because the implant never touches the skin during this process, it is truly a “no-touch” technique.

Dr. Aldo highly recommends the Keller Funnel™.

In summary, the Keller Funnel™ is considered state-of-the-art and was designed to ease the placement of silicone breast implants through standard breast augmentation incisions. The device gives a plastic surgeon 5 very important advantages when performing breast augmentation or breast lift with silicone gel breast implants:

  • Reduces local forces applied on the implant shell for better long-term results.
  • Reduces incision length with silicone gel breast implants.
  • Reduces trauma to the patient’s breast tissue, improving recovery time.
  • Lessens breast surgery time and reduces physician fatigue.
  • Allows for a “no-touch” delivery which reduces the rate of capsular contracture.
