This 53 year-old woman was found to have cancer in her left breast. She underwent bilateral mastectomies and immediate reconstruction with tissue expanders. She spent one night in a Fort Worth hospital. Dr. Kunkel later replaced the tissue expanders with 375 cc moderate-plus profile silicone gel breast implants. Her nipples were reconstructed a few months after that. *Keep in mind that each person is unique, and individual results will vary.
