Is Liposuction Safe?

Is Liposuction Safe?Liposuction was first developed in the early 1980s by a French surgeon. Since that time, the procedure has gained popularity due to its efficacy and simplicity of design. Liposuction has become the single most commonly performed cosmetic procedure, but there are risks associated with liposuction, like any cosmetic surgery. In Houston, the safety of liposuction is largely dependent on good candidacy and conscientious recovery care.

Liposuction Safety

The safety of liposuction is a responsibility shared by the patient and the physician. Having realistic goals and an honest assessment of your own candidacy is crucial, as is the training and experience of the cosmetic surgeon.

  • Good Candidacy – Good candidates for liposuction are those who are already at a healthy weight but are looking for better body contouring. Realistic expectations and good skin elasticity are also important factors. After care and recovery time are just as important as the procedure itself, so be sure to give yourself the time you need to rest and heal.
  • Skilled Cosmetic Surgeon – Safety during the procedure is largely in the hands of your cosmetic surgeon. Experience and skill can go a long way to preventing risk of bleeding, infection or nerve damage. The right liposuction procedure options can make a difference. Be sure to have a consultation and ask questions before you commit. Check the certifications, education, and board membership of your cosmetic surgeon.

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.
