Smoking Cessation

Greetings from Dr. Eisemann Cosmetic Surgery Center in Houston.

In the United States alone, it is withing the realm of possibilty to prevent over two millions complications in plastic surgery simply by encouraging a smoking cessation a month prior to a planned cosmetic surgery procedure.
Every year, between 8 to 10 millions surgical procedures that use anesthesia are done on cigarette smokers. The nationwide total is around 50 million, which means that smokers constitute about 20% of the nationwide total. In a recent study, it was estimated that a smoking-cessation a month prior to surgery could drastically reduce the risk of negative side effects for cosmetic surgery patients who are smokers.

The figures were taken by reviewing randomized studies that based the smoking cessation rate at 25%. So the number of two million preventable complications is based on a 1 in 4 ratio of people who will choose smoking cessation,

Smokers that were able to quit smoking prior to surgery had 41% less complications. The statistics show that for every week of cessation the effect increased by 19%.

One month seemed to be the most effective amount of time that researchers found to suggest.

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.
