Intravenous Sedation And Local Anesthesia

We have found that hospitals are often insensitive to the needs of aesthetic surgery patients. Our goal is to perform anesthesia in a safe environment whereby the patient is free of pain and breathing on his/her own. The advantages of intravenous sedation and local anesthesia include the convenience to our patients whose surgery is performed in an office operating room setting, Moreover, there is continuity of care whereby the same personnel see the patient preoperatively, intraoperatively, and postoperatively providing, personalized attention.. We have also noted that patients who return for other surgeries prefer intravenous sedation with regional block over general anesthesia, which requires hospitalization with a longer recovery time as well as a higher incidence of postoperative nausea. We have not seen any cases of deep venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolus. The incidence of infection is lower additionally since there are no hospital-acquired infections.
There is obviously a considerable economic benefit since hospital operating rooms are there fo a profit while the Eisemann Cosmetic Day Surgery Center is not a profit center but exists as an accommodation to patients who prefer intravenous sedation and regional anesthesia. Nearly all head and neck surgeries include facelift, blepharoplasty, and rhinoplasty as well as breast augmentation and breast reduction and abdominoplasty with liposuction can be performed safely and comfortably under intravenous sedation and regional block/local anesthesia

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dr. Michael Eisemann, Dr. Bradley Eisemann, and the entire staff at Eisemann Plastic Surgery are committed to the health and safety of all of our patients and ourselves.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country. Because of this, our screening policy is aided by the hospital's official policies and checkpoint screening measures completed prior to entering our building. These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.

While all major hospitals have stopped elective surgery at this time, we are very selectively performing indicated operative procedures in our procedure room and in our AAAASF certified operating room under local and IV sedation.

As always, both Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann are available by phone and email to answer any questions you may have.
