Plastic Surgery’s Official Stance On Stem Cells

Stem cells are constantly in the news because of the potential for treating a wide variety of medical conditions; they are also in the news because of controversy over the source of harvesting. An emerging technology in cosmetic and plastic surgery is the use of adult stem cells to rejuvenate the aesthetics of the body. However, scientists don’t currently have enough data to make any conclusions on the effectiveness of stem cell treatment for cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures. Therefore, both the American Society for Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic and Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS) issued a joint position statement. Both the ASAPS and ASPS position is that stem cells have significant potential for the future of surgical procedures, the scientific data must first be evaluated to determine effectiveness and patient safety. Because Houston is one of the top cities for medical research, there will undoubtedly local research. Until the data paints a clearer picture of efficacy and safety, the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center will continue to perform tried and true cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures such as breast augmentation and facelifts. Dr. Eisemann is a member of both the ASAPS and ASPS. Additionally, he is an academic faculty member at University of Texas Medical School and Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. Therefore, he remains in close contact with cutting edge research so he can best educate and serve his patients. To learn about procedures such as breast augmentation and facelifts, contact Dr. Eisemann’s staff today to schedule an appointment.

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.
