Bans On Botox For Teens?

Botox is prominently in the news after a San Francisco mother announced to Good Morning America, that she injected her 8-year-old daughter with the substance to help her compete in child beauty pageants.  After Children’s Protective Services took custody of the child, the mother recanted and alleged she was paid to make up the news story.  While we all breathe a sigh of relief that a parent is not personally injecting her child with Botox, it does raise the issue of when it is appropriate to begin using Botox Cosmetic.  One state legislature is attempting to take the decision out of the parent’s hands by debating a bill that would make it illegal for children to have Botox injections without a doctor’s corroboration that the treatment is medically necessary.  In Houston, Dr. Michael Eisemann of the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, is a triple board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery as well as on faculty at the University of Texas Medical School and Baylor College of Medicine. Therefore, Dr. Eisemann is very well qualified to answer any questions about the appropriateness and indications for the use of Botox.  Botox is generally used to temporarily treat crows feet and creases in the forehead between the eyes.  Botox is also indicated for other conditions.  To learn if Botox is right for you or your teen, contact the experts at The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center.

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.
