Benefits of the Keller Funnel Shaped somewhat like a pastry bag, the funnel’s lubricated design makes it easier, safer, and quicker to properly place silicone implants. By employing a gentler method, our surgeons are able to coax the implant through the funnel and into the breast pocket. Albeit a relatively simple device, the Keller Funnel enables our surgeons to better serve our patients. Benefits of the Keller Funnel include:
An opinion poll sponsored by Keller Medical found that nearly 95 percent of surgeons agreed that the Keller Funnel makes it easier to place the implant into the breast pocket.
In addition to these benefits, the Keller Funnel is a welcome addition for women who are prone to scarring as for those who are concerned with the appearance of any residual scarring.

Breast augmentation has undergone a fair amount of change since its inception in the 1960s. Breast implants themselves have continued to evolve—from the shell of the implant, to the type of material filling—and are now available in a number of varieties, including saline or silicone, smooth or textured, and round or shaped. Just as breast implants have changed, so too has the technique. One such change includes the invention of the Keller Funnel. Developed by Dr. Kevin Keller, the Keller Funnel was designed to better facilitate silicone implant placement. A board certified plastic surgeon himself, Dr. Keller saw the need in his own practice for an easier method of implant insertion.
