Finding a Plastic Surgeon: Land of Confusion (part 3)

In follow-up to this series of stories explaining the differences in training requirements, Houston’s Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Michael Eisemann, discusses The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.  The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery has three subdivisions:  general cosmetic surgery; facial cosmetic surgery; and dermatologic cosmetic surgery.  Before consideration, the doctor must already be board certified by an ABMS approved specialty like plastic surgery, general surgery, otolaryngology, or ophthalmology (with additional fellowship requirements).  Then the doctor must complete a fellowship or experience route for certification by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.  Fellowship applicants must complete a cosmetic surgery fellowship of no less than one year and then complete at least 100 cosmetic surgery procedures as the lead surgeon.  If the applicant seeks certification through the experience route, s/he must have been in practice for no less than 6 years and have completed at least 1,000 cosmetic procedures, in addition to other requirements.   Both routes are followed by written and oral examinations.  Dr. Michael Eisemann is triple board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery:  plastic surgery; facial plastic and reconstructive surgery; and otolaryngology.  Therefore, he is extremely well qualified to care for plastic and cosmetic surgery patients.

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.
