Rhinoplasty: Science And Art

Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping, is a plastic surgery procedure that is generally sought by patients to correct an aesthetic defect rather than a structural defect, although structure can play a role in having nose surgery. Though rhinoplasty is a medical procedure based on science, art is also a critical component. Scientifically, a plastic surgeon must have an excellent understanding of the anatomy of the nose because the nose is not just aesthetic, but more importantly, it is critical for the patients’ breathing.   The surgeon has to know how to approach the surgery in terms of harvesting cartilage and other materials from the patient to create solid structure if necessary. Just as important as the science is the art of rhinoplasty. The surgeon can obviously see the present condition of the patient’s nose, but he/she has to have vision and creativity to foresee what will meet realistic patient goals and be beautiful on the patient. There are many components to the art such as shape, width, tip, and angles. The nose the surgeon foresees and actually creates must fit the individual patient. A “cookie cutter” nose will of course work, but will it compliment the patient’s facial features and ethnicity? That’s truly where the art comes in. At the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston, Dr. Michael Eisemann has spent over 30 years mastering the art and science of plastic 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.
