This 45 year-old woman had cancer in her left breast. As part of her cancer treatment a Fort Worth breast oncology surgeon performed a left mastectomy. Dr. Kunkel reconstructed her breast with a latissimus flap. Due to the modest size of her breasts, she did not require a breast implant or tissue expander. Her result is shown 2 months after her nipple was reconstructed. *Keep in mind that each person is unique, and individual results will vary.
