Dr. Kelly R. Kunkel

Cosmetic Surgery

Kelly R. Kunkel, M.D., a board-certified plastic surgeon, specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the breast, body and face. From a patient’s first telephone call to the office through the final visit, the friendly, caring and energetic staff members are dedicated to providing an outstanding experience and outcome in an attentive and compassionate environment.

Dr. Kunkel was involved in early clinical studies with “gummy bear” breast implants. Having performed cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery for over 20 years, he has experience with almost every type of breast implant and almost every size and shape of breast. He is enthusiastic about the ever-increasing styles and shapes of breast implants and finds that, with so many options to choose from, a woman’s final result may be more finely tailored to her desires than ever before.

In body contour procedures, Dr. Kunkel aspires to provide a “show it off” result, helping transform an area of concern into an area of confidence. Whether it is through tummy tuck surgery, mommy makeovers or liposuction, Dr. Kunkel enjoys artistically sculpting an aesthetically pleasing profile and often finds patients’ self-esteem increases dramatically after these types of procedures.

When doing facial enhancement procedures, rather than trying to make patients look younger, Dr. Kunkel’s goal is to help them look refreshed. Cosmetic surgery of the eyelids, face and ears may have tremendous positive effects and are some of his favorite procedures.
