HYBRID STACKED FLAP BREAST RECONSTRUCTION BATON ROUGE, LA

Composite Stacked Flap Breast Cancer Reconstruction

A Hybrid Stacked Flap reconstruction is the newest approach to muscle sparing breast reconstruction, which is used to reconstruct the breasts in those patients who do not have excess or enough fat tissue in one donor site that is necessary for the breast reconstruction procedure. This procedure can combine DIEP, GAP, and PAP procedures to form the breasts. It is also a great alternative to the traditional free flap procedures for women who want larger reconstructed breasts and do not not want implants.

Baton Rouge Plastic Surgeon Dr. Theunissen is your best option when it comes to the hybrid stacked flap. Your plastic surgeon will be in the best position to recommend a hybrid stacked flap reconstruction if there is not enough tissue available in one donor site to reconstruct your breasts, or in cases where too many abdominal surgeries have been carried out. If this is the case, the likelihood of being a candidate for a hybrid stacked flap increases.

Similar to a standard free flap surgery procedure, the hybrid stacked flap procedure is also technically more difficult than other free flap procedures because it is combining multiple free flap procedures(multiple donor sites), and it usually takes more time than the other procedures. Also, there aren’t many surgeons who can perform this procedure, which is why Baton Rouge Plastic Surgeon Dr. Theunissen and his team of experts are considered to be some of the best in Louisiana. During your consult with Dr. Theunissen, he will help you determine whether or not a hybrid stacked flap reconstruction procedure could be carried out in your situation.

SOME BENEFITS OF HYBRID STACKED FLAP INCLUDE:

REDUCTION / RESHAPING OF MULTIPLE AREAS  One of the unique benefits of the Hybrid Stacked Flap procedure over other surgical options is that there are multiple donor sites that are used to reconstruct the breasts. This often results in reshaping and/or reducing multiple areas instead of just one. 

NATURAL LOOK – Because the Hybrid Stacked Flap it is a muscle sparing procedure, the breasts are reconstructed with fat tissue instead of muscle tissue. This gives the reconstructed breasts a more natural look and feel.

GREAT ALTERNATIVE – For women who want larger reconstructed breasts, “stacked flaps” are a great alternative to achieve the desired size.
