Can Any Doctor Perform Breast Augmentation Surgery?

The answer to this question is “It depends.”  A licensed physician may perform any procedure in his/her office.  Physicians are professionals that obtain a tremendous amount of training, and the board of medical examiners permits physicians to use their own discretion about which procedures they will perform in their own office.  For instance, it is fairly unlikely that an internist would perform cardiac surgery because most physicians specialize and seek board certification and re-certification devoting their entire career to that specialty, such as plastic and reconstructive surgery.  This is one reason many physicians who perform breast augmentation surgery, do so in their own surgical suites.  However, the same non-board certified physician might not be permitted to perform breast augmentation at a hospital.  Each hospital reviews a physician’s credentials and determines whether it will grant the physician privileges at all as well as the scope of those privileges.  For example, if a dermatologist wanted to perform breast augmentation s/he could do so in his/her own office surgical suite, but the same dermatologist may not be granted privileges at the hospital to perform breast augmentation.  The best way to find out whether your prospective plastic surgeon is board certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons is to simply ask.  This is not to say that the dermatologist will do a bad job at breast augmentation, but that board certified plastic surgeons have dedicated their entire careers to plastic and reconstructive surgery and have likely performed infinitely more breast augmentation procedures.  The passion to specialize in a field of medicine, maintain board certification, and to dedicate one’s medical career to a particular area in medicine speak volumes about your breast surgeon.

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.
