The Keller Funnel, initiated in 2009, is a soft, sterile, single use, cone shaped instrument that aids in the deliverance of pre-filled silicone gel implants during breast augmentation surgery. The international device presents numerous advantages to Dr. Pousti, and most importantly to his patients. This universal tool can deliver the natural look and feel of silicone breast implants to new breast augmentation procedures as well as to reconstructive breast augmentation surgeries with various implants both smooth and textured.
The internal finish, containing an oily hydrophilic coating, permits surgeons to naturally drive the implant to the breast pocket with insignificant power and decreased force on the implant as well as the incision. The implant is positioned in the opening of the funnel with the petite end placed in the incision leading to the breast pocket and a simple squeeze allows the implant to make its way through the funnel and into the breast pocket.
The convenience of the Keller Funnel allows Dr. Pousti to administer the implant with a no contact method, allowing for decreased risk of contamination, less finger weakness during the procedure, as well as reduced surgery time. With the use of the funnel, Dr. Pousti is permitted to make a minuscule incision length in a variety of areas, resulting in quicker healing and improved comfort for the patient as well as less tissue damage.
