Bigger Isn’t Always Better–down Sizing Your Breast Implants

In a world focused on mass-production lead by the drive of society’s focus on “bigger is better,” we have the tendency to apply these same ideals to even the most personal of perspectives.  This is never so true than in the ideals of personal image and cosmetic surgery.  Typically, this has proven to be the case for breast implant surgery for many individuals–with the tendency skewed toward more extreme looks in our figures.

Psychologists have completed many decades of studies on self-perception, and often see these skewed self-perceptions in the general populous.  Everyone has experienced this at one time or another in their own lives.  Much like the unfamiliarity of your own voice being played back to you in a recording, given perspective, individuals usually have to use new reference points to accept their own features.  

In many ways a cosmetic surgeon completes this task of mediating a patient’s perception of themselves with a focus on their outside perspective.  The option of sizing down a breast implant surgery is usually a good idea when speaking with your doctor.  Often women ask for the maximum size possible during their consultation.  They typically want to overcompensate based on a skewed perception of inadequacy.  Rather than over accentuating the feature, finding a mid-sized range of implant can result in a much more eye-pleasing figure proportionate to the total body.  This results in a greater aesthetic result post-surgery with the woman’s overall figure in mind rather than a disproportionate look of being to “top-heavy.”   

So before going “big” ask yourself, “Is ‘bigger’ really better?”

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.
