Meet Dr. Bunting

Dr. Bunting is passionate about helping women feel healthy and confident in their bodies, whether after breast cancer treatment, pregnancy and childbirth, or other life changes. As a mother of three young children, she personally understands the challenges facing her patients.

Education and Training

Born and raised in Houston, Dr. Bunting had her first exposure to medicine in middle school as a volunteer at Texas Children’s Hospital, where she became fascinated by the role that medicine can play in a patient’s life. 

After graduating from Washington and Lee University in Virginia with her bachelor’s degree in physics, she pursued her master’s degree in biomedical engineering at Columbia University in New York City because she was interested in the intersection of engineering and medicine.

While there, she worked alongside surgeons in the Orthopedic Biomechanics Lab and saw how a surgeon can directly impact a patient’s well-being. This inspired her to attend medical school at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. where she discovered that pursuing a career in plastic surgery would allow her to combine her intellectual curiosity, creativity, and eye for beauty.

After medical school, Dr. Bunting completed her plastic surgery residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. It was during this time that she gained a special interest in advanced breast reconstruction for breast cancer patients, including microsurgical DIEP flap reconstruction, as well as advanced aesthetic techniques in plastic surgery. To further hone her reconstructive techniques, she completed a fellowship in microsurgery at the University of California, Los Angeles.
