Stem Cells In Houston Plastic Surgery – Part 1

Stem cells receive lots of attention in the medical field because they have multiple realms of clinical potential and due to their ability to replicate. Plastic and aesthetic surgeons have significant interest in stem cells for their potential as promising tissue fillers. Stem cells can be used as a single agent filler or they can be used in combination with hyaluronic acid gel. Besides having promise for all realms of medicine besides plastic surgery, stem cells are controversial, but this is limited to embryonic stem cells that are derived through fetal tissue harvesting. However, stem cells are not limited to human embryos, and in fact, adults have stem cells as well that can differentiate in to multiple kinds of tissues. Adult stem cells that can be used in plastic surgery procedures such as facial fat grafting are called mesenchymal stem cells, and they are found in bone marrow and adipose (fat) tissue. As one can imagine, adipose derived mesenchymal stem cells are more readily harvested, and can be easily harvested during a liposuction procedure. This can be done when the patient is under general or local anesthesia either in the hospital or plastic surgeon’s surgical suite. Visit Dr. Eisemann’s blog tomorrow to learn more about the use of adipose harvested stem cells for facial rejuvenation.

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.
