Are Silicone Breast Implants Safe?

At the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we are as concerned with your safety as you are. One of the questions we hear most from Houston-area women is whether silicone breast implants are actually safe.

This question often arises from the fact that silicone breast implants were taken off the market for several years as a result of safety concerns in the event of implant rupture. However, silicone breast implants have been back on the market for years, and there’s no evidence that they present unique dangers to patients.

Now, it’s important to understand that there are always risks with breast augmentation, as there are with any procedure. Breast implants are medical devices, and all medical devices can fail and rupture.

However, decades of studies have shown that silicone implants do not present added risk to patients after a rupture event.

Dr. Michael Eisemann will help you decide whether silicone implants are right for you.

If you’re a resident of the Houston, Texas area, or if you live anywhere in the country and you’re considering breast implants from a proven plastic surgeon, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today.

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.
