Healthy Body Image For Teenagers

Individuals expressing their desire for cosmetic and plastic surgery seem to be getting younger and younger.  Perhaps it is the age in which we live, where we are bombarded by sensory image and sound that can have profound effect on our perceptions of our own bodies.  Younger individuals are expressing themselves more and more with tattoos and body alterations.  It is healthy to be individual and define ourselves as who we are and what we want for ourselves in the future.

However, younger individuals need to take a much harder look at themselves before turning to plastic surgery for solutions.  We won’t treat just any whim of a person no matter how young to resolve issues that may be more personal or emotional.  Cosmetic Surgery has its purpose in medical study and its development over the years have been founded on the same principles that hold true to our medical standards guided by Hippocratic Oath.

If a young individual is diagnosed with an issue that interferes with their health and enjoyment of life to an extent deemed worthy for operation, then a voluntary surgery may be performed.  Plastic surgery treats real issues.  Liposuction may be used to offset secondary medical issues like diabetes.  Inhibited breathing may be alleviated with the surgical procedure of rhinoplasty, and so on.

The potential for physical development through diet exercise and natural growth is simply too great to resort to surgery at too formative of a phase in a young woman or man’s life.  If a youth is interested and does not have an issue threatening the quality of their life, we recommend the individual wait and possibly seek help.

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.
