Plastic Surgery For Octogenarians?

Recently, an 83-year-old woman from Southern California made headlines in print and via Internet for having breast augmentation surgery.  Though 83, this grandmother and great-grandmother had a youthful view about her procedure citing that the brain goes one way and the breasts go another.  She also quipped that in order to have a companion at this age or a dinner date, one must have the figure that “these geezers” are looking for.  While many admire grandma’s youthful attitude and desire to stay socially active, some people ask “how old is too old to have plastic surgery?”  Some critics wonder if the benefits of plastic surgery outweigh the risk of complications.  However, The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery addressed this question last year, and the answer is it depends on the individual patient and his/her health status.  Patients in reasonable health did not have a higher level of complications than those under 65.  During 2010 there were nearly 85,000 plastic surgery procedures on Americans over the age of 65, and the procedures ranged from breast augmentation to facelifts, and other cosmetic procedures.  This is just another example of our aging population desiring to remain active and attractive in their golden years.

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.
