This 49 year-old woman developed cancer in her right breast.  She underwent a right mastectomy by a breast oncology surgeon in a Fort Worth hospital.  During that operation Dr. Kunkel reconstructed her breast with a latissimus flap and tissue expander.  A few months later the tissue expander was replaced with a 550 cc round silicone gel breast implant.   Her nipple was reconstructed after that.  *Keep in mind that each person is unique, and individual results will vary.
