360 West Magazine’s TOP DOCTORS 2019

Dr. Kelly R. Kunkel

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

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

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 high-definition liposuction, Dr. Kunkel enjoys artistically sculpting an aesthetically pleasing profile and finds patients’ self-esteem often increases dramatically after these types of procedures.

Dr. Kunkel was the first surgeon in Tarrant County to use the innovative AirXpander in breast reconstruction. He is one of the relatively few local plastic surgeons who do breast reductions for patients paid for by insurance. He has done cosmetic breast surgery on women from Canada, New York and California. Breast lifts with fat grafting are becoming increasingly popular in his practice.

When doing facial procedures, Dr. Kunkel’s goal is to make patients look refreshed, rather than younger. Cosmetic surgery of the eyelids, nose and ears can have a tremendous positive effect.
