The Breast Academy offers an optional scar management package for our patients who are undergoing a breast augmentation procedure. The package includes a Keller Funnel™ and Cerederm silicone gel. The Keller Funnel™ is a cone-shaped surgical device used by the plastic surgeon during the procedure for ease of delivery of the silicone implant into the pocket. It is a quick and gentle alternative to the traditional method of finger insertion. Some benefits of the Keller Funnel™ include:

  • Reduces incision lengths

  • May reduce bruising and post-operative discomfort

  • Limits local stress on implant shell which may lead to rupture

  • Decreases surgery time

  • Employs no-touch delivery technique, believed to reduce infection-based complications.

The Cerederm silicone gel helps to reduce the size and change the appearance of scars. It uses the latest in silicone technology, simulating the natural barrier function of healthy skin, hydrating scar tissue to soften the scar, shrinking it, flattening and fading it. Cerederm can be applied to the following scars:

  • Hypertrophic scars

  • Keloid scars

  • Old or new scars

The scar management package is an optional extra. Please contact the staff at the Breast Academy if you would like to purchase the package prior to your procedure.
