A Case For Teenage Plastic Surgery

Each year, many young men (between the ages of 12-18) dread going back to school – not because of homework and tests, but because of changing in the locker room.  Overdeveloped male breasts can have a devastating effect on a teen.  The positive news is that in most instances the excessive fatty tissue will resolve on its own.  But there are cases when this does not happen.  I have seen several young men with their parents in my Houston office wondering what to do.  Some teens present with a small amount of fatty tissue in one or both breasts, while others present with pendulous, fleshy breasts like that of an old woman.  One patient related a story wherein his classmates relentlessly teased him, called him “Moob Man” and defiled his locker with bras.  This not only affected the young man’s self-esteem but also his grades.  Even in the absence of immature, cruel antics, the young person’s self-esteem can suffer.  There is a surefire cure for male breasts called gynecomastia.  It is very much like a breast reduction surgery for women.  However, before performing this procedure we, at The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, go through a comprehensive history and physical and spend time discussing the surgery (including risks and benefits).  We do not encourage teens to have elective procedures without considerable thought, but when plastic surgery can change the person, his life, and the way he sees himself for the better, that’s a great day’s work.

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.
