If you’re looking for a new alternative to gel implant breast augmentation, Vincent Surgical Arts may have what you’re looking for.
Vincent Surgical Arts is now using the new, innovative, state-of-the-art delivery system called the Keller Funnel. Dr. Vincent is one of only two physicians in Utah performing breast augmentations using the Keller Funnel.
The Keller Funnel is a single use, cone-shaped device that assists in the delivery of pre-filled implants during breast augmentation procedures. It is made of nylon, and the interior is lined with a hydrophilic coating, which allows it to readily absorb moisture. Once the implant is inside of the funnel, Dr. Vincent then places the small, distal end into the prepared breast pocket. While using a pushing and squeezing motion, the breast implant is then propelled into place.
A few of the advantages to Keller Funnel breast augmentation include shorter incision lengths, faster healing time, a no-touch technique, more choices for incision placement and reduced force on the implant and the incision area. Both smooth and textured implants up to 800 cubic centimeters have been successfully implanted with the Kennel Funnel.
“Using the Keller Funnel when performing breast augmentation significantly shortens the surgery time. It also limits the stress that is put on the implant, which reduces the chance of it rupturing,” says Vincent. “It is a hands-free technique, which helps to prevent contamination and there is less trauma on the patient’s tissue. It really is a safe and convenient alternative for those who are considering having breast augmentation.”
