The State of Fat Grafting In Houston Plastic Surgery: Faces And Breasts

For the last ten years plastic surgeons and researchers have been evaluating the effectiveness, safety and longevity of fat grafting. This is a procedure where fat cells from the patient’s own body are harvested from a donor site, processed for medical use, and then re-injected into another area of the body, such as the face or even breasts. While fat grafting has the obvious benefit of using the patient’s own natural cells rather than fillers or breast implants, it is far from a perfect procedure. The top challenges for fat grafting include the risk of over filling or under filling the recipient site as well as reabsorption of the grafted fat. Nevertheless, fat grafting procedures to restore facial volume and augment the breasts are improving over years of clinical studies. Though fat grafting may be a more “natural” approach to plastic surgery, the facts are that facial fillers and breast implants remain to be the most stable and predictable methods for patients at this time. The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center prides itself on remaining informed about cutting edge procedures for its patients as well as providing the best present-day plastic surgery techniques for its patients, both male and female.

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.
