Plastic Surgery for 20 somethingsCosmetic surgery has historically been most utilized by people in their 50s and 60s, but that is changing. People in their twenties are seeking plastic surgery to remove their imperfections now more then ever.

CBSPhilly reports that “millennials are now the fastest growing age group having plastic surgery.” In fact, the percentage of those having plastic surgery has doubled in millennials from 5% to 10% since 2013.

Millennials, those born between 1981 and 1997, are surrounded by others with seemingly flawless and youthful appearances. Internet, television, and magazines are being filled with beautiful celebrities.

In this selfie-crazed world, twenty-somethings are also on display to the world, through social media, more often today more then ever. Whether to look more like their favorite celebrity or to fix a flaw in their selfie, millennials are choosing plastic surgery more then ever.

Botox, which The American Society of Plastic Surgery says is one of the most popular enhancement procedures, is the number one requested enhancement by millenials. Other popular cosmetic procedures include acid peal to remove sun damage, fillers for fuller lips or soften acne scars, non-surgical fat reduction, and hair removal.

Why Board Certification Really Matters?When researching plastic surgeons, many patients wonder whether board certification really makes a difference in the quality of service and results they can expect from their surgeon.

The truth is that plastic surgery is major surgery. You don’t want to trust that to just any person with a medical or dental degree, which is what you might get if you aren’t selecting a board-certified plastic surgeon. Sadly, medical professionals, who should know better, take a weekend class in injectables or breast augmentation and then advertise as cosmetic surgeons.

Patients who opted to undergo treatment from an unqualified surgeon have been disfigured and even lost their lives.

Board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery ensures that the surgeon you are trusting with your face and body has had a significant amount of training and experience, including:

  • Graduation from an accredited medical school
  • At least three years of general surgery training
  • At least two years of plastic surgery training
  • Passage of comprehensive written and oral exams
  • Six months of surgical review by a panel of board-certified plastic surgeons

Dr. Michael Eisemann is board certified in three different specialties under the American Board of Plastic Surgery, as well as the American Board of Otolaryngology – head and neck surgery, and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

If you would like to learn more about Dr. Eisemann’s certifications and experience in providing high quality plastic surgery results, please contact Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today at 713-766-0071 to schedule your appointment. We welcome patients throughout Houston and the surrounding communities.

Brazilian Butt Lift 101Using your own fat to sculpt your figure is one of the fastest growing trends in plastic surgery. Last year alone, buttock augmentations with fat grafting, commonly known as Brazilian butt lifts, increased 15 percent. A record 11,505 procedures were performed, and this year even more are expected.

The idea would seem promising to anyone – liposuction fat from unwanted regions on the abdomen, hips, or back and transfer it to round out your derriere. How do you know if it’s the right procedure to add volume to your behind? The best way to know if a Brazilian butt lift is right for you is to schedule a consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon, but before you do, take the time to understand the basics about the procedure.

  • The procedure is not a “lift” that requires surgical intervention and longer recovery time, like a breast lift would. The Brazilian butt lift simply takes fat from one area of your body and uses it to enhance another.
  • Fat transfer allows for a more natural look and feel than buttock implants. It also requires much less recovery time – generally only two to three weeks.
  • Injected fat can be reabsorbed into your body, so more than one procedure may be necessary to achieve the final results you want.

Would you like to explore the Brazilian butt lift option to contour your body? Please contact Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today at 713-766-0071 to schedule your appointment with triple-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann. We welcome patients throughout Houston and the surrounding communities.

Liposuction and BMIResearchers at the University of Illinois’ Division of Plastic Surgery, Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, and the Lehigh Valley (Pa.) Health Network recently released the findings of a new study that looked at the correlation between body mass index (BMI) and liposuction safety.

The results of the study indicated that “BMI plays a role in outcomes of liposuction volumes, and higher-BMI patients may be able to tolerate more liposuction than lower-BMI patients,” according to the co-author of the study, Dr. John Y. S. Kim.

He also stated that the study emphasized that “liposuction in the hands of properly trained surgeons is an exceedingly safe procedure with low morbidity.”

At Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston, Dr. Michael Eisemann is a triple-board certified plastic surgeon who puts patient safety and satisfaction at the top of his priorities.

Texas Wrinkle RiskIn a recent study analyzing the wrinkle risk of residents in each state and ranking the states from most risk to least, Texas came in at #38, making our state one of the least risky for developing wrinkles.

Factors used for ranking wrinkle risk included:

  • Exposure to UV rays determined by elevation, latitude, and cloud cover
  • Racial and ethnic demographics
  • Extreme high and low temperatures
  • Length of commutes
  • Amount of smokers

The worst state for wrinkle risk is New York. It ranks highest because of the high stress and longest commute times of its residents. Surprisingly, some of the sunniest states have the least risk. Hawaii was #47, California was #36, and Florida was #32.

States with unhealthy eating habits and a higher incidence of smoking were among the worst states to live in for developing wrinkles. West Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky all ranked in the top 10.

Modern Medicine Network provided the full list of states ranked by wrinkle risk.

Wrinkle prevention begins with healthy habits and good skin care. And thanks to modern technology, smoothing away wrinkles is easier than ever.

Male Approach to Plastic SurgeryEach patient brings his or her own ideas of beauty to plastic surgery. Dr. Eisemann takes time during each consultation to understand what you are looking to achieve through surgery and set your expectations for a successful outcome.

In general however, there are some differences in the way men and women approach plastic surgery. Dr. Eisemann understands these different needs and welcomes male patients.

Our male patients tend to approach plastic surgery with a single solution in mind. Where women may come in with a general idea of the flaws they would like to correct, men generally come to the office with a focus on one procedure to enhance their features.

Male patients also tend to be more private about their procedures. Although it is becoming increasingly acceptable to undergo plastic surgery, we respect our patients’ right to privacy and allow them to share their experiences with others only when they feel comfortable doing so.

If you are considering a plastic surgery procedure and would like to discuss your options in a confidential consultation, please contact Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today at 713-766-0071 to schedule an appointment with triple-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann. We welcome clients from throughout Houston and the surrounding communities.

Breastfeeding After Breast SurgeryMany patients ask the question whether they will be able to breastfeed after undergoing breast surgery – breast reduction, breast augmentation, or breast lift.

The truth is that many factors affect a mother’s ability to breastfeed her infant. Milk supply and a family support system are often as important as any other factors. Breast surgery is just one consideration among many and usually a prior breast surgery will not stand in the way of you experiencing this special time with your child.

If you are concerned about the effect your surgery will have on your ability to breastfeed, you should discuss this with Dr. Eisemann during your consultation. Certain techniques can be used to avoid severing nerves in the breast and nipple that would affect your ability to breastfeed.

Some women choose to wait until after they have experienced childbirth and breastfeeding to undergo breast surgery. Your breasts can change significantly during pregnancy and shortly after. At that time, you could consider a mommy makeover for an overall rejuvenation of your figure.

To discuss your breast surgery options and when the proper time is for your procedure, please contact Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today at 713-766-0071 to schedule an appointment with triple-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann. We welcome clients from throughout Houston and the surrounding communities.
