This 56 year-old woman from the Aledo – Willow Park – Weatherford area of North Texas had undergone breast augmentation and breast lifts 20 years ago. She has a congenital depression of her breast bone (“pectus excavatum”). She no longer wanted to have breast implants. After visiting with Dr. Kunkel in Fort Worth, she decided to have her saline-filled breast implants removed. She also wanted to minimize the bottom-heavy appearance of her breasts and decided to re-do her breast lifts. Her ‘after’ photographs are shown 4 months after her surgery. She is thrilled with her result and happy that she will not require any more surgery related to having breast implants. Her scars will continue to fade. *Keep in mind that each person is unique, and individual results will vary.
