Kelly R. Kunkel, M.D.


As seen in Fort Worth Texas Magazine, 360 West Magazine, and Texas Monthly, Dr.Kunkel has been voted by peers to be one of Fort Worth’s Top Doctors numerous times over a plastic surgery career spanning 20 years. He is dedicated to creating an exceptional experience for each and every one of his patients.

“People often ask me why I went into plastic surgery. I remember the deciding factor very clearly. When I was in my third year of medical school I spent one month with the plastic surgery service. One day the plastic surgery residents and staff physician were working on a 10-year-old boy who had lost an ear as a result of a severe burn. The plastic surgeons did an operation where they took a part of his rib, carved it into the shape of an ear, and implanted it in his scalp where the ear used to be. I thought, “Great! I want to be able to help people like this.” Now I am a plastic surgeon, and I am fortunate to be able to do what I love to do.”
