Research has shown that contamination of a breast implant not only increases the risk of infection, but increases the possibility of developing a capsular contracture. A capsular contracture is excess scar tissue that forms around a breast implant, and it's a challenging problem to fix. The best treatment for capsular contracture, is avoiding it in the first place! Using a "no touch" technique, which includes the Keller funnel, a silicone breast implant can be placed inside the breasts without touching the implant. The Keller funnel allows the implant to be delivered with gentle force that is less traumatic to the breast tissues and the breast implant itself. Shorter incisions can be used. All of these benefits result in less pain and faster healing.
Not all board-certified plastic surgeons use the Keller funnel. Dr. Hayes is certified by Keller Medical and uses the Keller Funnel in every silicone breast implant procedure he performs. Dr. Hayes works continuously to improve surgical results for his patients.
