Diabetes And Plastic Surgery

One question we are asked at The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center is whether a patient with diabetes can have elective plastic surgery. Even though diabetes is a serious medical condition, patients who are well controlled and in good health can and do undergo plastic surgery procedures such as breast augmentation and liposuction. During your consultation with Dr. Eisemann, he will discuss your diabetes with you and how well it is under control. For instance, he will want to review at least your last two to three hemoglobin A1c results to see that your average blood sugars are within acceptable ranges and that they are stable. Just as your endocrinologist will tell you, an A1c of 7.0 and below is the goal. As diabetic patients know, it takes longer for wounds and incisions to heal than in the general population, and it is very important to monitor healing and keep the incision sites clean. By being candid with Dr. Eisemann about your medical history and diabetic care, you will form a partnership for a safe and successful plastic surgery procedure.

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.
