Treating Breast Asymmetry In Houston

There are many kinds of congenital breast and chest wall irregularities that affect children, adolescents, and adults. While the majority can be corrected through surgery (whether one or multiple), many irregularities cannot be repaired until the patient is fully grown or developed, and this is the case for treating breast asymmetry. It is best to delay surgical intervention until the patient is between 17 and 18 years of age. While breast asymmetry does not create medical problems for the patient per se, the psychological effect can be quite significant – especially in adolescent females. They may feel personally embarrassed, socially isolated, and have difficulty in forming relationships if the breast asymmetry is left untreated. Breast asymmetry is not uncommon in females, but when it is more pronounced plastic surgery is an excellent way to create symmetry. A breast may be hypoplastic (deficiently developed) or absent altogether (aplasia), and both situations may be treated. When a patient has a hypoplastic breast, the plastic surgeon’s aim is to make the deficient breast match the other, fully developed breast. This can be done using breast augmentation, breast reduction, or both procedures. Breast augmentation would enhance the hypoplastic breast to be congruent with the other breast. Breast reduction (mastopexy) would reduce the size of the other breast to be congruent with the hypoplastic breast. However, plastic surgeons often use both techniques to achieve breast symmetry and aesthetic harmony. Houston’s Michael Eisemann, M.D. is a triple board certified surgeon who has focused on plastic surgery for over 30 years. Dr. Eisemann has experience not only in surgeries whose focus is solely aesthetics, but also in plastic surgery geared toward correcting the body’s structural elements.

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.
