Are You Sure You Need Eyelid Surgery? Part 1

Many prospective patients who present at the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center seek to have eyelid surgery to fix drooping eyelids associated with the aging process. The eyes are one of the most prominent facial features and they help us convey emotions through their expressions.  The plastic surgery procedure to fix droopy eyelids is referred to as blepharoplasty.  The point is to make the facial appearance more youthful and rested looking by perking up the eyes.  However, not all patients who consult Dr. Eisemann about eyelid surgery have the typical skin laxity associated with aging, but another condition called ptosis.  Ptosis is actually an ophthalmologic disorder affecting the muscles that control lifting the upper eyelid.  Ptosis can be caused by a genetic abnormality that has always been present in the patient’s DNA, injury, various diseases or by aging.  Severe cases of ptosis can cause problems with the patient’s vision.  Risk factors for ptosis can include diabetes, stroke, Horner syndrome, and/or cancer that impacts the nerve and muscle response in the eye.  Dr. Michael Eisemann is a skilled plastic surgeon with multiple board certifications and over 30 years of experience in plastics.  Therefore, he is able to differentiate the patients who may have ptosis.  For information on how to meet one’s plastic surgery goals and treat ptosis, stay tuned for future blog posts from Dr. Eisemann’s office.

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.
