Breast Implants & Terrorism: Really?

Just when you think that national security threats couldn’t get any worse, federal government intelligence agencies proves us wrong.  In August, the federal government advised the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) that breast implants might be the next strategy terrorists use to conceal explosives and get past security screening.  To date no such occurrence has been documented, but some experts agree that this is a plausible scenario.  When this story hit the newswire it naturally upset thousands of women who have undergone breast augmentation and have either silicone or saline breast implants.  There are already reports of TSA officers who get overzealous with pat down protocol, but the TSA has not implemented breast exams or even suggested such a procedure.  Houston plastic surgeon, Michael Eisemann, M.D., reminds his patients and the public that it would be highly unlikely for a physician of any nationality to implant an explosive device inside the body because of the ancient, fundamental medical doctrine of “do no harm.”  Women with breast implants should be put at ease because advanced imaging techniques at airport security lines are replacing pat downs.

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.
