Georgia Institute for Plastic Surgery

In the field of plastic surgery, Dr. Thomas Horn and the team at The Georgia Institute for Plastic Surgery are leading the way in breast reconstruction.

Plastic surgery is not always about tummy tucks and liposuction. Dr. Horn focuses on reconstructing tissue that diseases like breast cancer took away. He and his team are on the forefront of a microsurgical procedure known as deep inferior epigastric perforators (DIEP) flap breast reconstruction. They specialize in taking blood vessels, skin and fat from the lower abdomen and using them to form new breast tissue. The goal is always to give the client something better than what they had before. In this way, they are helping their clients feel more whole and more like themselves.

“Being able to give back to patients by restoring their body back to normal after cancer, is what makes my job so rewarding,” says Dr. Horn. “Our group are the leaders in microsurgical reconstruction in the Southeast.”
