Can Large Silicone Breast Implants be Placed Through the Axilla with a Keller Funnel?
First of all both saline and silicone implants can be used with a trans-axillary breast augmentation. It is a myth that only saline can be used for your augmentation. I routinely place a wide range of silicone breast implants in through the axilla.
The use of the Keller funnel allows the implants to be placed through the axilla easily. I have placed implants as large as 700cc in through the axilla with the use of the Keller funnel. The Keller funnel keeps the implant from coming in contact with the skin in addition to a traumatically placing the implant through a small incision.
Please consult your board certified plastic surgeon to help guide you through your breast augmentation process.
