The Realities of Breast Reconstruction

As discussed in yesterday’s post from The Eisemann Cosmetic Surgery Center, breast reconstruction is an option for breast cancer survivors who seek to replace the breast lost to life-saving treatment thereby looking more natural and balanced, or for those who are not satisfied with wearing a special bra and prosthesis under their clothing.  Breast reconstruction requires several plastic surgery procedures with the overarching goal being to create a breast that looks like the remaining natural breast in terms of size, shape and appearance.  Any good plastic surgeon will discuss with the patient that while a reconstructed breast will fill out their bra and make them look symmetrical in clothing, it will never feel like their natural breast or have the same sensations as their natural breast.  Even following healing from the reconstruction surgery, the patient will have visible incision lines and scars from the original mastectomy and/or the reconstruction surgery.  Recreation of a breast mound usually requires taking tissue from a donor site such as the patient’s back, inner thigh or abdomen, and this, too can leave some visible incision lines.  In order to have improved breast symmetry following reconstruction, some patients elect to have a breast lift to equalize the natural breast and the reconstructed breast.  This is a plastic surgery procedure that is incredibly personal in nature, and potentially emotional.  Therefore, the patient may consider participating in breast cancer survivor support groups and thoroughly contemplating the surgery before taking action.

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.
