A funnel chest can be a considerable aesthetic burden for the affected individual. There are a number of complex thorax-surgical methods to correct a funnel chest. We use a simple method involving the placement of a silicone implant on the breast bone. A specific hard-silicone implant is produced by using a casting mould made of plaster. Under general anaesthesia in the outpatient setting, the implant is inserted via a small incision from the upper abdomen and positioned on the breast bone and pectoral muscles.
