St. Louis Plastic Surgeon Uses Keller Funnel for Safer Breast Augmentation

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2013) - Dr. Jeffrey G. Copeland, a board-certified St. Louis Plastic Surgeon, has adopted the use of the Keller Funnel, one of the latest technological advancements in breast augmentation. Keller Medical Inc. recently published the results of its second annual Funnel Opinion Panel that surveyed more than 300 surgeons. Dr. Copeland, who has been following this recent literature, thinks the results of the study speak for themselves and he has seen the benefits firsthand.

The Keller Funnel is an alternative method of placing silicone implants, replacing the traditional method of manually inserting the implant. Dr. Copeland says he has seen many benefits for his St. Louis plastic surgery patients as a result of the innovative tool. Using the Keller Funnel reduces the risk of contamination because implants receive less exposure to contaminants versus the traditional manual method. Dr. Copeland also highlights that the Keller Funnel reduces at least one of the potential causes of postoperative capsule contracture.

According to Keller Medical's survey, 97% of surgeons found the Keller Funnel made the process of breast augmentation easier. 98% of surgeons reported that they would recommend the Keller Funnel to their peers -- or that they already had done so. From the ease of its gel delivery method to the shorter incisions required for patients to the touch-free aspect of procedure, Dr. Copeland and his fellow surgeons are embracing the technical advantages offered by the Keller Funnel. At Dr. Copeland's practice, Copeland Cosmetic Surgery, he says he strives to remain current with the industry's technological innovations in order to offer his patients state of the art care and the safest, most effective procedures.
