Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Serving Areas Near Houston & Sugar Land, TX

January 15th, 2018

You have taken the steps necessary to reach your personal body goals. You did your research, selected your surgeon, and you are now preparing for your upcoming procedure. Here’s a chance to take the time and get more of the information you may need about what comes next. What you do or attempt to do while you are healing can have a huge affect on how well your overall procedure goes. You have already invested the time and money into your procedure, so why not do your best to make sure you get the results you want?

We are here to help with 4 common procedures and the best ways to heal from them properly.

Breasts

For any breast procedure, the chest area may feel tender and swollen right after so be sure you are gentle when attempting to lie and sit down. After you have had a friend or family member drive you home, you are ready to begin your recovery. Once home, ask for help if you need to reach for, or pick up something right away. Drink water and halt physical activity for about 4-6 weeks. You may need to wear extra support bras and loosely fitted clothes for maximum comfort while you rest. Dressings should be fully removed after about 2 weeks, and you should be able to expect a full recovery in about 6-8 weeks.

Nose

While your nose is healing, be careful to keep your nasal plaster in tact for the entirety of the healing process. This should be about 2 weeks. Stock up on softer foods like soup, bananas, and yogurt as you will experience some discomfort when eating and drinking. If you have a friend available for assistance, see if they can grab you a smoothie loaded with fresh fruits and veggies, and ask for a spoon to go with it. Stay away from physical activity for about 6 weeks as your nose will be sensitive and accompanied by some fairly visible bruising making it sore to the touch. You can then expect a full recovery anywhere from 6-8 weeks for a rhinoplasty, and 8-12 weeks for a rhinoplasty with a graft.

Body

For a full body lift, you may not feel completely up to the task of going about your normal life for about 12-16 weeks. But before you begin, you might need to buy a few clothing items to help support your body while it is still healing. You may need a hand in replacing your surgical drains so choose someone you trust to help you with this portion of your healing. Sleeping will be a new challenge as well but it is possible with the right position and special pillow. Ask your surgeon about this to see what they think might be best for you. For all tummy and body procedures, refrain from exercising for about 6-12 weeks.

Liposuction

Recovery time for liposuction depends largely on how much work you have had done. Keep your wrappings or bandages on for about 2 weeks and wear the required support garments for anywhere between 4-6 weeks. Take a break from the gym and other workout methods for 6 weeks and give your body time to recuperate and relax. Again, depending on how much liposuction you are having, a full recovery can be expected in 2-8 weeks. Keep hydrated and make sure your sleeping situation stays clean and dry.

Overall

Remember that recovery time is different from person-to-person and always ask your trusted surgeon if you have any questions or concerns. Keep up with any necessary follow ups, hydrate, and shower carefully to avoid any infections or complications. When you choose someone like triple board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Eisemann, you should feel open to asking questions and feeling completely comfortable in knowing that you will love the new you.

Deciding to get surgery for cosmetic or functional purposes is a huge deal. Whether you want to feel more confident in the way you look, or you’re having complications with your body and need to correct something, plastic surgery is your choice to make. So now that you know you want something done, where should you begin? There are so many surgeons out there, it can be tough to know where to begin your research.

Here we have compiled 4 tips that may help you choose a plastic surgeon and plastic surgery center that suits you.

Education & credentials

Pay attention to your potential plastic surgeon’s education, awards, and be absolutely certain that they are board-certified under a trusted and accredited board. For example, as one of the top plastic surgeons in Houston, Dr. Eisemann is uniquely triple-board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the American Board of Otolaryngology, and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Experience

A doctor’s experience says a lot about how they operate. Depending on the procedure and its level of complication, you may want someone who has several decades under their belt. While some doctors may say they perform a number of procedures, you should go about selecting one that specializes to what you are looking for. For instance, Dr. Eisemann specializes in Aesthetic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery, Liposuction and Body Contouring, Houston Breast Augmentation, and Nasal and Facial Plastic surgery. You can also research your potential plastic surgeon’s techniques and learn about what they mean so that you have a general understanding. Feel free to ask your plastic surgeon later during your consult if you would like a more clear picture of exactly what they do.

Schedule a visit

Nothing can set the tone of an office quite like a personal visit. Distance within reason may not even be that much of an issue if you are truly looking for the best services that revolve around you. Stepping foot into an office gives you a firsthand chance at how you may be treated throughout your surgery journey. The cleanliness of an office and other rooms, such as their bathroom, may give you an idea of how much the staff and doctor truly care about their facility. Just like you wouldn’t want to eat in a dirty restaurant, you do not want to take the risk of getting surgery in a place that looks unkempt. When speaking to your doctor, note his or her academic diplomas and ask as many questions as you need before you make your final decision. You should never feel uncomfortable or forced to go through with a surgery you are unsure of. You want answers from your doctor to be honest so that you can form a realistic idea about how your surgery will go.

Review testimonials

Read previous patient testimonials and see what they have had to say about their procedure and their experience with their doctor. Keep in mind that their need for change and their final results can and probably will be different from your own. So it might be best to focus more closely on how they say they felt about themselves afterwards than picking apart their before and after photos if they decide to share any.

When going through your day-to-day, it can be easy to get thrown off balance health-wise. But giving in to these bad habits can also affect your skin and the way it may look and feel. If you’ve woken up lately to excessively oily, overly dry, or sagging skin, you may be able to make some adjustments to get the healthy, glowing skin you’ve been craving.

Here’s a combo of 5 simple tips and tricks, as well as recommended procedures from the best plastic surgeon in Houston to aim for a healthy new look that lasts well beyond the upcoming new year.

Healthy Glowing Skin

Put your best face forward

With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Eisemann has had numerous successful surgeries performing on patients who have wanted a facelift, or rhytidectomy. This type of treatment can give skin a firmer appearance without that pulled-too-tight look. After the surgery, keep your new look in the best shape possible by staying hydrated and drinking water throughout the day.

 

Practice constant care

Get yourself into a speedy morning routine and follow the two basic skin care steps of cleansing and moisturizing. Start by targeting areas where you need the most assistance such as acne breakouts, dry patches, or redness. Once you’ve found products that works for you, use them and see the change. Anything with SPF can be a huge bonus, but if there’s existing damage you may want to look into other treatments. Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL) can prove to be the best extra step to take to diminish sun spots, age spots, and visible veins and capillaries. With no down time, you can get right back on schedule.

 

Work it out

Pop a 30 minute sweat session into your day to get the blood flowing. Blood pumping through the body during an awesome workout means that blood cells are carrying oxygen and nutrients wherever they may be needed, including your skin. If a trip to the gym just isn’t enough, consider some fine detailing with a chin augmentation—also known as a genioplasty—performed by triple-board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Eisemann. This method gives patients a better profile by chiseling the face using implants, or by adjusting the bone itself.

 

Berries & BOTOX®

Take some time to fuel up on delicious food options that pack a powerful supplement punch. Snacking on fruits like blueberries, and blackberries can give your skin some essential antioxidants for an extra boost. To further prevent signs of aging, look toward our Houston cosmetic surgery center and see what BOTOX® can do for you to help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles for upwards of 18 months.

 

Rest up

Sleeping the minimum 8 hours is key to skin’s health. Nighttime is when your skin cells renew and prepare your face for a new day. But for those who have little time to get to bed, eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty, may help. This procedure can be done on the upper or lower lid to give eyes a more awakened appearance. After your new lids have healed, continue a good nighttime regime and try to get some rest.

Houston Breast AugmentationBreast augmentation is the most popular plastic surgery procedure in the United States. Since the year 2000, there has been a 37% increase in the number of breast augmentations performed by board-certified plastic surgeons in the United States annually. And there are good reasons for this procedure’s popularity: it can have a profoundly positive impact on self-esteem, improve clothing options, and enhance the entire frame without serious risks or a drawn-out recovery period.

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts, call Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann at 855-813-7077 to schedule a breast augmentation consultation today. We welcome women from Sugar Land, Katy, Conroe, The Woodlands, and all surrounding areas of Texas.

What Can Breast Augmentation Address?

With breast augmentation, implants are used to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. This allows Dr. Eisemann to address issues such as:

  • Breasts that are too small for the frame
  • Unflattering breast shape
  • Asymmetrical breast tissue
  • Inadequate cleavage
  • Lack of breast projection

With breast augmentation, our board-certified Houston plastic surgeon can improve the shape, projection, size, and symmetry of the breasts to produce a look that is complementary to all of your physical features. With over three decades in practice, Dr. Eisemann has the experience necessary to produce natural-looking results that serve to improve the contours of your entire body. Call us and schedule your consultation today to learn more.

Breast augmentation cannot improve ptosis (sagging breast tissue). For this purpose, a breast lift will be best. Combining breast lift with augmentation is an option for some women, but not necessary for all. Dr. Eisemann will listen to your concerns, assess your frame, and discuss any suitable solutions during your initial consultation.

What are My Breast Augmentation Incision Options?

Houston breast implant incision optionsThere are three traditional breast augmentation incision options:

  • Periareolar – this incision is made in the dark skin of the areola, just around the nipple, where any scarring will easily be obscured
  • Inframammary – this incision is made underneath the breast, in the crease where the lower curve of the breast meets the chest, allowing incisions to be hidden in the natural folds of the chest
  • Transaxillary – this incision is made in the folds of the armpit, eliminating any risk of visible scars on or around the breasts

A fourth option, TUBA, uses endoscopic tools to insert the breast implant through the belly button. This incision removes the surgeon from the treatment area and limits many breast augmentation options including where the implants can be placed and what type of breast implant can be used. It is therefore not an option offered at our Houston plastic surgery center.

The location of your incisions will be dependent on factors such as your lifestyle, clothing preferences, and ultimate goals. Dr. Eisemann will discuss all of these things with you during your initial consultation to make sure you are choosing the incision location most suitable for your needs.

Where can My Breast Implants be Placed?

There are two primary breast implant placement options:

  • Subglandular – with this placement, implants are inserted below breast tissue, but above the muscles in the chest. Subglandular implant placement is best for women with sufficient breast tissue, enabling the edges of the implants to be fully covered
  • Submuscular – with this placement, breast implants are inserted below the muscles of the chest. This deeper placement allows implant edges to be covered even in women with very little natural breast tissue. Submuscular implant placement may also reduce risks of implant failure, visible implant imperfections, and a rare breast augmentation complication called capsular contracture

The breast implant placement option that is best for you, like all breast augmentation options, will depend largely on your anatomy, lifestyle, and desires. There are benefits and limitations with both options which Dr. Eisemann will discuss with you during your initial consultation to help you make the decision that is best for your particular needs.

What Types of Breast Implants Does Dr. Eisemann Offer?

Our board-certified Houston breast surgeon offers both saline and silicone breast implants. Both types of implant can be round or teardrop shaped. Both types of breast implant can be textured or smooth, and both types can be placed above or below the muscles in the chest.

Breast Implant Types in Houston Saline breast implants are filled after they have been placed. This reduces incision size and allows for minor adjustments in volume after the implant has been placed. Depending on implant location, however, saline options may not look and feel as natural as silicone alternatives and may be more prone to visible imperfections such as rippling, wrinkling, and double-bubble. These issues are greatly reduced when saline breast implants are placed below the muscles of the chest.

Silicone breast implants are filled prior to placement and require a slightly larger incision. The tradeoff is in look, feel, and longevity. Silicone implants, even when placed above chest muscles, tend to look and feel more like natural breast tissue. Due to the viscosity of their filling, silicone implants are also much less likely to ripple, wrinkle, or fold, and may outlast their saline counterparts by serval years.

Form stable implants (“gummy bear breast implants”) are an advanced silicone option that perfectly mimics breast tissue. This type of implant may last longer than even other silicone options, making them ideal for many patients.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Eisemann will discuss your breast implant options to help you choose the one that will best produce the look you desire.

Financing Your Breast Augmentation Procedure

At the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we accept cash and all major credit cards for breast augmentation surgery. We also work with several breast augmentation financing companies that offer a range of payment options.

Male Breast Reduction in Houston

Gynecomastia is derived from Greek and Latin words that translate to “woman-like breasts.” An emasculating condition, gynecomastia can make even the healthiest of men look less appealing and may have a profound impact on emotional wellbeing and overall satisfaction – both with your body and your life. Unfortunately, diet and exercise are often not enough to address this condition and can, instead, tone areas around enlarged breast tissue, further highlighting the womanly appearance of your chest.

If you suffer from gynecomastia, Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann can help. Please call our office at 855-813-7077 to schedule a consultation and learn more.

What Causes Gynecomastia?

Enlarged breasts in males may be caused by a number of factors. Some of the most common are:

  • Weight gain
  • A sedentary lifestyle
  • Hormone fluctuations

These causes of gynecomastia may be exacerbated by contributing factors such as:

  • Certain medications – some antianxiety medications, antidepressants, ulcer medications, cancer treatments, antiandrogens, and gastric motility medications can cause enlarged male breast tissue
  • Herbal products – tea tree oil and lavender mimic estrogen in the body and can lead to excess tissue production in the chests of males
  • Illicit and street drugs – amphetamines, heroin, and marijuana are all linked to gynecomastia
  • Health conditions – hypogonadism, hyperthyroidism, kidney failure, cirrhosis, and tumors can contribute to male breasts

Alcohol and steroids are also contributing factors, as is age. Gynecomastia is common in adolescent boys and older males, though in the former group the condition often self-corrects before early adulthood.

Risk factors for gynecomastia include general inactivity and poor dietary choices, but genetic factors and health conditions play a role as well. During your consultation with our board-certified Houston plastic surgeon, we will determine the causes of your condition and, from there, the most effective course of treatment.

How is Gynecomastia Treated?

Houston Male Breast Reduction Gynecomastia is treated through male breast reduction. This procedure varies depending on what is causing your womanly breasts, but can typically be achieved through:

  • Liposuction to remove excess fat deposits
  • Excision of unneeded glandular tissue

For both options, a small incision will be made in the chest through which Dr. Eisemann can remove the unnecessary and unsightly tissue. Once removed, this tissue cannot come back, though new accumulations of fat will appear if proper care is not taken to avoid weight gain. We will discuss this in greater detail during your initial consultation to ensure you are prepared to maintain your male breast reduction results for a lifetime.

What is Recovery from Male Breast Reduction Like?

Recovery from gynecomastia surgery is similar to recovery from liposuction. Some bruising, swelling, and discomfort are likely unavoidable in the days following your procedure. Discomfort can be dealt with through prescription medications provided by Dr. Eisemann. Swelling can be reduced through the use of compression garments. Bruising will subside on its own.

Swelling can further be reduced through mild forms of exercise such as swimming or walking. You will want to keep your incisions clean and avoid submerging the treatment area in water for a few weeks, but walking is a safe and comfortable option that can be done with as much frequency as you desire.

Most men are able to return to work within two to five days. Dr. Eisemann will talk to you about when you can expect to resume all normal work duties during your follow up appointments. If your job is physically demanding, you may need to wait for two to four weeks before resuming all normal duties. Four weeks is also the time at which you can expect to be physically prepared to take on more advanced forms of exercise.

Maintaining Male Breast Reduction Results

Plastic Surgery for Men in HoustonThe easiest ways to maintain your male breast reduction results is by adopting a healthy lifestyle. If your condition is the result of medications, you may need to talk to your doctor about alternatives. If illicit drug use, steroid use, or alcohol consumption have played a role, you will need to reconsider those choices. Healthy lifestyles support gynecomastia surgery results. Drug use, a poor diet, and inactivity will work in the opposite direction.

What is a healthy diet? Simply put, one that relies mostly on fresh and whole foods. Try to avoid processed foods, fast food, foods and beverages high in sugar and salt, and anything that your grandparents would not have recognized as edible. What does that leave? Almost everything.

Male breast reduction surgery can act as a springboard for a healthier and more satisfying life. Explore new tastes and exciting food options to make your diet healthy. Good foods to choose from include:

  • Fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Nuts and legumes
  • Lean proteins such as fish, chicken, and tofu
  • Complex carbohydrates

If you have troubles finding a diet that you enjoy, work with a nutritionist to develop a meal plan that supports your male breast reduction results.

Exercise is an essential component of weight management, but what does an effective exercise routine look like? 30 minutes of moderate activity daily and at least 90 minutes of more progressive exercise weekly should do the trick.

A good exercise routine can include:

  • Swimming
  • Yoga or Pilates
  • Speed walking or jogging

These things can be done every day, many in or around your own home, and should be easy to incorporate into your daily routine.

More cardio-intensive exercises that should be performed for at least 90 minutes weekly include:

  • Power or heated yoga
  • Group aerobic or spin classes
  • Running
  • Competitive or team sports

If you wish to enhance your results and highlight your chest, you may wish to engage in activities including:

  • Boot camp or CrossFit classes
  • Weight training

If you have a hard time finding a plan you enjoy, work with a personal trainer to optimize your routine. Dr. Eisemann also offers pectoral implants for men who wish to have a more muscular-looking chest. This, along with other forms of male plastic surgery, can be discussed in greater detail during your visit to our office.

Are You Ready to Eliminate Your Gynecomastia?

Dr. Michael Eisemann is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. In practice for over 30 years, Dr. Eisemann has the experience and dedication needed to produce the most pleasing results.

Offering a range of plastic surgery procedures designed for men, Dr. Eisemann is able to customize treatments to meet the unique anatomy of each person he sees. If you are unhappy with any aspect of your body, call us at 855-813-7077 to schedule a consultation and learn how we can help.

Houston ENT Dr. Michael Eisemann works with most major insurance carriers to cover the cost of balloon sinuplasty. If you struggle with chronic sinusitis, call 855-813-7077 to schedule a balloon sinuplasty consultation with Dr. Eisemann. During this consultation, our patient coordinator can discuss payment options, including insurance, to help you plan for your nonsurgical sinusitis treatment.

Will My Insurance Pay for Balloon Sinuplasty?

Houston Sinuplasty Insurance Payments | Balloon Sinuplasty and InsuranceWhile we work with most insurance carriers at our Houston office, not all insurance policies will pay for nonsurgical sinus treatments. It is always a good idea to review your policy and talk with an agent to determine if your provider will cover the costs of balloon sinuplasty.

If your insurer will not cover the cost of treatment or if you do not have insurance coverage, we offer a range of balloon sinuplasty financing options with special rates and incentives that can be used alone or in combination to pay for your procedure. These options can be discussed with our patient coordinator during your initial sinus treatment consultation.

Why Consider Balloon Sinuplasty?

Balloon sinuplasty is a nonsurgical treatment for chronic sinusitis that can help relieve painful congestion, chronic headaches, and other issues brought about by sinus infection. A safe and suitable treatment for seasonal allergies as well as post nasal drip, balloon sinuplasty works to open nasal passages and eliminate breathing difficulties brought about by all types of sinus irritation.

Balloon sinuplasty does not require incisions or general anesthesia, allowing the procedure to enjoy a very short recovery period with few risks for complication. During your initial consultation, Dr. Eisemann will discuss the procedure in more detail and answer any questions you may have to help ensure you are making the decision best for your needs.

To schedule your consultation with our triple board-certified surgeon, please call 855-813-7077 today. Located in Houston, Dr. Eisemann welcomes patients from The Woodlands, Katy, Sugar Land, Pearland, and all surrounding areas.

To learn about male breast reduction financing in Houston, contact board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann and schedule your consultation todayMale breast reduction is a safe and effective way to address gynecomastia – a condition in which excessive fat or glandular tissue give a feminine appearance to the chest. Embarrassing and emasculating, gynecomastia is often linked to hormonal changes, but can also be the result of lifestyle choices, certain medications, and the process of aging.

Because there can be a number of underlying factors causing gynecomastia, no single treatment option will be suitable for every man.  Some men respond well to liposuction alone. Others will need to have glandular tissue surgically removed. Others still may need a combination of services for full correction of their condition.

The best way to learn which of these options will produce the results you deserve is through a private and confidential consultation with Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann. During this consultation Dr. Eisemann will evaluate your condition, discuss treatment options, and help you choose which one is right for your needs.

Call us at 855-813-7077 to schedule your consultation and learn more.

Financing Your Male Breast Reduction Procedure

The cost of male breast reduction depends on which techniques will be required for the optimal sculpting of your chest. During your initial consultation, we will discuss male breast reduction costs along with financing options that can help make your procedure more affordable.

In addition to cash and credit card payments, we welcome male breast reduction financing from several reputable companies including Parasail, Prosper, CareCredit, and Alphaeon. When you come to our Houston office for your treatment consultation, we can provide you with information on each of these companies to help you find the one that meets your needs.

To learn more about financing your male breast reduction procedure, call the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center at 855-813-7077 and schedule your consultation today. Located in Houston, our board-certified plastic surgeon welcomes patients from The Woodlands, Katy, Conroe, Sugar Land, and all surrounding areas of Texas.

If you live in the Houston area and suffer from a deviated septum, triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann can help. Contact our office to schedule your consultation todayYour nasal septum separates your right and left nostrils. Very few people have completely symmetrical nostrils, though for many, these minor variances cause no real problems.

Septum deviation occurs when the wall between the nostrils is significantly displaced – typically through trauma or genetics. A deviated septum can result in chronic problems including:

  • Nasal pain
  • Headaches
  • Mouth breathing
  • Snoring
  • Loss of smell
  • Post-nasal drip

Septum deviation can also result in physical deformity, making the nose look crooked and out of place. Unlike sinusitis, balloon sinuplasty will not be enough to correct a deviated septum. Permanently moving cartridge requires a more advanced surgical approach.

Nose Surgery

The most common solution for septum deviation is rhinoplasty, also known as nose surgery or a nose job. With this procedure, Houston nose surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann can permanently straighten the nasal wall, widening nostrils and putting an end to the labored breathing and chronic pain that often come with a deviated septum, while also addressing the physical imperfections caused by this common condition.

During your rhinoplasty consultation, Dr. Eisemann will assess all of your nasal deformities and help you understand what nose surgery may be able to accomplish for you.

Why Choose Dr. Eisemann?

Dr. Michael Eisemann is a board-certified plastic surgeon. He is also board-certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, making him uniquely equipped to perform complex nasal surgeries. Assistant Clinical Professor of Otolaryngology and Neck Surgery at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston for the past 40 years, Dr. Eisemann is highly respected and a trusted expert in his field.

With over three decades in practice as a plastic surgeon, Dr. Eisemann knows how to blend the artistic side of his practice with the medical, allowing him to produce rhinoplasty results that restore physical comfort while producing a naturally appealing look. During your initial consultation, Dr. Eisemann will carefully evaluate your nose, discuss all of your options, and help you decide if rhinoplasty is the right fit for your needs.

If you live in or around Houston and would like more information about nose surgery, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today. We welcome patients from The Woodlands, Conroe, Sugar Land, Katy, and all surrounding communities.

Liposuction in HoustonWhen plastic surgery procedures make their way into the popular consciousness, myths often abound. Reality gets stretched into something unrecognizable. And potential patients gain a completely skewed idea of what a procedure entails.

Liposuction is no exception. At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we often have potential patients who come to a consultation with a completely unrealistic portrait of the liposuction procedure.

This page is our way of addressing some common myths and providing you with a few important points. Reading it will give you more than enough information to understand the basics of the procedure so that you can arrange a consultation with confidence.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area or you're an out-of-town patient looking for safe, credible liposuction, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today at 713-766-0071 for a consultation.

Just The Facts

We believe it's crucially important that you have all the relevant information before making a decision on liposuction or any other plastic surgery procedure. This means answering your questions and addressing your concerns in a respectful, understanding environment.

Here's what you should know about liposuction:

  • The procedure is quite safe: You've probably heard horror stories about botched liposuction procedures. But while there is always a risk of a complication with any surgical procedure, liposuction has an extraordinarily impressive safety record. Every year hundreds of thousands of patients undergo liposuction without experiencing any meaningful complications.
  • Your Choice of Plastic Surgeon Matters: However, this does not mean that anyone can be trusted to perform liposuction. As a surgical procedure, it must be performed by an experienced, educated and trained professional. Dr. Eisemann is a triple-board certified plastic surgeon who has decades of experience with the procedure.
  • Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure: More cartoonish portrayals of liposuction show morbidly obese patients having massive quantities of fat removed and exiting the surgical center fit and thin. In reality, liposuction is best performed on patients who are at or near their ideal body weight. It is a body contouring procedure, not a weight loss procedure.
  • Liposuction can be customized: You have a number of liposuction procedure options, including treatment area, the amount of fat to be removed and procedure variations such as ultrasonic liposuction. This allows Dr. Eisemann to customize your procedure to your specific needs.

Sensationalism is great for headlines and website clicks, but it doesn't actually inform people. We believe in an open, transparent approach to plastic surgery that provides you with all the information you need to make a reasoned decision on your own behalf.

If you're a resident of the Houston, Texas area and you're considering liposuction to remove stubborn deposits of fat, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today for a consultation.
