Houston Tummy Tuck Basics (part 2 of 2)

The tummy tuck is a popular plastic surgery choice in Houston, but many patients want to know what they’re in for in terms of recovery so the patients can plan accordingly to take time off from work and physical activities.  Most patients really need two weeks to recovery from a tummy tuck.  During this time, there may be post-operative pain to manage through medications as well as drains that must be removed once they finish their function.  Though the patient may go back to work in about two weeks, s/he should avoid exercise until officially cleared by Dr. Eisemann.  This usually occurs within about 3-4 weeks.  Following surgery, the patient can expect to wear an abdominal compression garment.

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.
