The Keller Funnel
To remain at the forefront of our field, The LoVerme Center has a history of commitment to the latest plastic surgery technologies. The Keller Funnel™ is one of our newer tools, giving our breast augmentation patients an additional approach to achieve the exceptional results they expect from our practice. Our Plastic surgeon Dr. Paul LoVerme is Keller Funnel™ Certified, providing our patients with an innovative method of implant delivery. The main benefits of using the Keller Funnel™ include:
- Reduced incision lengths
- Less visible scarring
- Added options for incision placement
- Minimized risk for implant damage
With the Keller Funnel™, Dr. LoVerme is able to perform silicone gel breast augmentation using a smaller incision similar in size to those used for saline implants. Because the incision required for placement is smaller, there are also more ways in which the scar can be concealed – an advantage particularly beneficial for women who scar easily. In addition, the Keller Funnel™ technique exerts less force on the implant during the procedure, placing less pressure on the implant shell and reducing the risks of post-operative complications. This “no-touch” implant technique also minimizes the chances of capsular contracture (excessive scar tissue forming around the implant) while increasing patient comfort during the recovery period.
