This 72 year-old woman from the Granbury – Cleburne – Glen Rose area of North Texas underwent breast augmentation with silicone gel implants 34 years before she visited with Dr. Kunkel. Her breasts changed over time, with her tissue becoming lower on her chest. Mammograms indicated she had ruptured implants. She chose to have the implants and surrounding scar tissue removed. Dr. Kunkel performed her surgery in an accredited Fort Worth surgery center. Breast lifts were discussed and she elected not to do that. *Keep in mind that each person is unique, and individual results will vary.
