This 51 year-old woman developed cancer in her right breast.  The breast oncology surgeon did a lumpectomy through an incision along the upper part of the right breast.  The margins of the lumpectomy specimen were positive and the woman required a right mastectomy.  At the time of the mastectomy Dr. Kunkel reconstructed her 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.
