Body Lift Basics

The body lift is a procedure designed to remove fat deposits and excess skin from the patient’s hips, buttocks, and abdominal region.  This procedure may restore the patient’s body to its prior appearance, or in some instances, the procedure creates a contoured body for the first time.  Pregnancy and childbirth can significantly change the appearance of a female patient’s abdominal area, and of course gravity and aging skin takes its toll on all of us.  A lower body lift may treat the abdomen, waist, hips, and buttocks.  Your plastic surgeon will make a circumferential incision around the patient’s body to remove what is called an “apron” of excess fat and skin.  Depending on the patient, liposuction may also be necessary to remove excess fat.  After excess fat and skin are removed, the surgeon repositions the skin using deep, supportive sutures to create the new body contours.  After surgery, the patient must wear a compression garment to assist with healing.  In Houston, Dr. Michael Eisemann has performed hundreds of body lift procedures with beautiful results.  Not only is Dr. Eisemann triple board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, he has over 20 years of experience performing complex plastic surgery procedures.  In addition to experience through his practice, Dr. Eisemann is on the faculty of both Houston medical schools, including University of Texas and Baylor College of Medicine.  For more information on body lift procedures, 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.
