Must I Replace My Breast Implants?

The answer is it depends on the circumstances, but there is no set replacement criteria like buying new tires after a certain number of miles.  Due to media commentary and misunderstandings, much of the general public believes that women must replace their breast implants every ten years, but this is NOT the case. “Replacement” or revision surgery is necessary only in specific instances, such as the patient’s desire to increase implant size or failure of an implant. However, most commonly patients seek to replace their implants because they wish to trade out saline breast implants for silicone breast implants. Saline filled implants were the only kind available during the moratorium on silicone breast implants, but since extensive scientific research exonerated silicone breast implants from a variety of health woes, the US FDA cleared them for sale and use. Though saline implants are still available and used by breast surgeons, most patients prefer the natural feel provided by silicone gel. Questions like this one are welcomed at your consultation with Dr. Eisemann, and he will provide every patient with candid, straightforward answers.

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.
