Neck Contouring Procedures – Part 4

In The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center’s five part series on neck contouring procedures, we have discussed the various surgical techniques for creating an improved and more youthful look for the patient’s neck, which is often a telltale sign of aging even when the face and rest of the body appear in tip top shape. Salivary gland resection is another approach to neck contouring, but it is used almost exclusively for patients having had a facelift or neck lift in the past. For some of these patients, the salivary glands (a/k/a submandibular glands) begin to bulge over time despite the fact that the skin in the neck has tightened. Dr. Eisemann educates his patients (prior to any procedure) that this may occur post-operatively. In some cases, this can be anticipated in an initial examination before surgery; however, not all such issues can be spotted beforehand. Through very careful procedures the glands can be visualized surgically and addressed. However, only very experienced surgeons with board certification in head and neck surgery should perform such an operation.   Michael Eisemann, M.D., is board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons in three areas, including: plastic surgery, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, and otolaryngology (head and neck surgery).

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.
