Breast Reduction And Weight Loss: What Patients Should Consider

Weight management is an issue many women will face in their lives, but what many may not consider before considering breast reduction surgery is how it will impact their post-surgical appearance.  Initially losing weight in the breasts before anywhere else is a huge irritant to women, but it’s something they should consider with their plastic surgeon before pulling the trigger on surgery.  Dr. Michael Eisemann advises his patients that they should be very close to their ideal weight before undergoing breast reduction surgery.  If the patient plans to lose additional weight following surgery, she should be aware that even a loss of 10-15 pounds can reduce the volume of the breasts, which means that for some women their breasts may be reduced in size much more than they intended.  With the rising popularity of gastric bypass surgery and lap band surgery, this is a real concern because patients may lose around 80-100 pounds within a year of gastric bypass.  For the best outcome it is highly recommended that the patient be at her ideal body weight before undergoing breast reduction surgery.

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.
