THE GOLD STANDARD IN BREAST RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY

Breast Reconstruction Baton Rouge

THE GOLD STANDARD IN BREAST RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY

Breast Cancer Reconstruction can be performed to restore the breasts pre- or post- mastectomy. Depending on your body, needs, and preference, Dr. Theunissen offers many breast reconstruction options, some of which can be performed in conjunction with others to achieve desired results. Dr. Theunissen employs only the most advanced muscle-sparing procedures, which take skin and fat tissue, from your abdomen, buttocksthigh area, and sometimes multiple areas. Muscle – Sparing procedures are considered the “gold-standard” now because women can recover faster, without sacrificing much needed, core-strength muscles as previously sacrificed  in older, dated procedures, such as with TRAM Flaps.

Dr. Theunissen and his staff understand being diagnosed with cancer is hard enough to deal with, which is why they are available to answer all of your questions and concerns to help you be as informed as possible. In addition, Dr. Theunissen employs the assistance of  other microsurgeons for microvascular breast reconstruction cases in order to minimize operative time and optimize results for his patients in the Baton Rouge and New Orleans areas.

Reviews & Testimonials

What Our Patients Are Saying

Dr. Theunissen performed a double breast reconstruction for me, and I have been very pleased with my care and the final results of my surgery. Dr. T knows his field extremely well and is a skilled surgeon and the nicest physician I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

 DOUBLE BREAST RECONSTRUCTION

I was referred to Dr. Theunissen by my oncologist Dr. Bowie(for breast reconstruction). This was not a surgery I wanted to do but needed to do, and I had a lot of anxiety. He really eased my mind by answering all my questions. I trusted Dr. Theunissen & his staff to take care of everything, and I’m glad I did! I could not be more happy & healthier now!! :-)”

DIEP RECONSTRUCTION -A.L.

“After complications with breast reconstruction implants from previous double mastectomy and reconstruction performed by well-known surgeon in New Orleans, Dr. T spent several visits with me explaining Diep Flap procedure. I really did not want to have this surgery; however, it was my best option. I’m so thankful for Dr. Theunissen and his highly experienced staff! My results are fabulous! I smile every day when I think of what a challenge I was and how happy I am today! Dr. Theunissen did his job, God heals!!!”
