This 72 year-old Fort Worth, Texas woman had silicone gel breast implants placed 43 years before she came to see Dr. Kunkel. A mammogram and ultrasound showed her breast implants were ruptured. Her breasts were hard and she didn’t like how they looked. Dr. Kunkel removed the ruptured implants and surrounding thick scar tissue (capsulectomy). He also performed breast lift surgery (mastopexy). She was very happy with how soft her breasts were and how she looked after her procedure. *Keep in mind that each person is unique, and individual results will vary.
