This 51 year-old woman developed cancer in her right breast.  A Fort Worth breast oncology surgeon completed a lumpectomy through an incision along the upper part of the right breast.  The margins of the lumpectomy specimen were positive (still had cancer present) and the patient required a right mastectomy to take care of that.  At the time of the mastectomy Dr. Kunkel reconstructed her right breast with a tissue expander.  Six months later he replaced the right breast tissue expander with a 500 ml round silicone gel breast implant, and performed a left breast lift.  *Keep in mind that each person is unique, and individual results will vary.
