Taylor Theunissen, MD Leading Muscle-Sparing Breast Reconstruction in Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Baton Rouge, Louisiana – Taylor Theunissen, MD is a proficient breast reconstruction specialist who caters to those within Louisiana and around the Baton Rouge area. His experience and knowledge in the area of breast reconstruction enables him to provide quality care for his patients, and run seminars at hospitals on the latest, advanced techniques in breast reconstruction.

“We have a full-time, friendly team of trained professionals ready to give our patients optimal care within a friendly, comfortable environment, says company owner, Taylor Theunissen, MD. “For standard plastic surgery, the office is also equipped with an in house, state-of-the art Operating Room so our patients don’t have to have their procedure done in hospital facilities. The O.R. also comes with a full-time, Board Certified Anesthesiologist to keep our patients comfortable and safe. However, with breast reconstruction, it must be performed at the hospital due to insurance requirements and the extensiveness of the procedures.”

Taylor Theunissen, MD (https://www.drtplasticsurgery.com) is one of a few doctors in the Baton Rouge area who has experience in such a diverse array of breast reconstruction procedures. These procedures include: Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator (DIEP), which is considered the gold-standard in autologous flap breast restoration; Profunda Artery Perforator (PAP) Reconstruction is a similar flap procedure, however, the tissue is taken from behind the upper thigh; and GAP Flap Breast Cancer Reconstruction is another option for patients who do not have enough tissue mass in the abdomen. There are two types of this reconstruction: Superior Gluteal Artery Perforator (SGAP) and Inferior Gluteal Artery Perforator (IGAP).

Procedures also include: Hybrid Stacked Flap Reconstruction, which is a relatively new procedure that may combine three different procedures (DIEP, GAP, and PAP) to reform the breasts in patients who may not have enough fatty tissue in one area of the body; Breast Cancer Reconstruction Revision, which is done if the shape or look of the reconstructed breast needs to be modified further; and Implant Reconstruction, which involves reshaping the breast with silicone or saline instead of a tissue flap. While some of the procedures listed in his repertoire have been performed in the industry for a few years, Taylor Theunissen, MD places an emphasis on patient-centric care with the use of two microsurgeons per-procedure, ensuring less surgery time and less time for healing that puts his patients at ease.

Taylor Theunissen, MD currently ranks at roughly a 95% success rate in breast reconstruction successes, which is higher than the national average.
