Dr. Phillip Chang Introduces New Ways to Decrease Scars and Potential Complications For Breast Augmentations in Loudoun and Fairfax Virginia

Dr. Phillip Chang of Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center stays at the forefront of cosmetic breast surgery by being one of the first local plastic surgeons to use the Keller Funnel to minimize scars and implant trauma. Dr. Chang has perfected the Keller Funnel technique for both Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift procedures. Dr. Chang has offices in Loudoun and Fairfax Counties in Northern Virginia.

(PRWEB) May 22, 2010 -- Ten years ago, Dr. Chang introduced and taught his Transaxillary Breast Augmentation (underarm) technique to minimize breast augmentation scars. Last year, he was one of the first local plastic surgeons to offer the On-Q Pain Pump to his patients to minimize their postoperative pain. This year, Dr. Chang was one of the first local plastic surgeons to regularly use the Keller Funnel to minimize the length of scars in his breast surgery patients, as well as minimize the risk of trauma and bacterial infections that may cause implant ruptures and scarring around the implant, respectively. The Keller Funnel device was introduced at the Annual Conference of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) in 2009.

Breast Augmentation, also known as Breast Enlargement, is one of the most common surgical procedures performed by Dr. Chang. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), Breast Augmentation was the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States in 2008. Many patients decide to have a breast augmentation prior to having children. But the majority of patients decide to have a breast augmentation after having children as part of a Mommy Makeover Procedure to restore and rejuvenate their breasts. Due to pregnancy and breastfeeding, a woman’s breasts lose volume and roundness, the stretch on their skin leads to drooping, and the nipple-areola complex may become larger. Post-childbirth women often want to return their breasts to what they might have looked like before having children.

The Keller Funnel is a cone-shaped device designed to help surgeons place a pre-filled silicone breast implant into the breast pocket through an incision as small as three centimeters (cm). The cone is lined with a hydrophilic polymer coating, a special lubricant that — when moistened — makes the funnel so slippery that an implant can be placed without ever being touched by human hands. Dr. Chang cites at least three reasons do have a breast augmentation using a Keller Funnel Device:

1.   Minimize the length of the scar;
2.   Minimize the trauma of putting the implant into the surgical pocket;
3.   Minimize the amount of bacterial contamination.

The benefit of minimizing the length of the scar is self-evident. To take a patient with an A-cup breast to a C-cup breast used to make a scar of at least seven- to-nine cm in length. The silicone breast implant can now be placed through a Keller Funnel with just a five cm incision. The benefit of decreasing the trauma of breast implant placement is also self-evident. Researchers have determined that the most common cause of implant rupture, even 10 years after the breast implant surgery, was trauma to the implant at the time of rupture. The effort of placing the implant with Keller Funnel is only a fraction of what is traditionally necessary. Finally, by delivering the breast implant through the Keller Funnel, the implant nev
