Trends In Cosmetic Surgery

Statistics collected by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons shows that the demand for cosmetic surgery continues to grow in Houston and beyond. Across the US, 15.6 million cosmetic surgery procedures were performed in 2014, up 3 percent from the previous year. Additionally, reconstructive surgeries increased 1 percent to 5.8 million. Medical advancements and technological improvements were indicated as one cause of the increases.

Recent Trends

  • Buttocks: Newfound focus on the posterior continues as people embrace their curves. Buttock augmentation with fat grafting rose 15 percent, while buttock implants nearly doubled. Buttock lifts rose 44 percent as well.
  • Minimally-Invasive and Cosmetic Surgical Procedures:  Less invasive procedures increased 4 percent, with focus on Botox, soft tissue fillers, chemical peels, laser hair removal, and microderm abrasion leading the demand.
  • Reconstructive Surgery: Breast reconstruction rates rose an encouraging 7 percent. Over 102,200 procedures performed using several different techniques indicate a greater awareness of how reconstructive surgery can play a role in recovery from breast cancer and improved quality of life for survivors.

Overall trends indicate that there is a shift in demand from the classic procedures of the past to new, less invasive procedures. People are focused on the subtle aesthetic enhancement of their own features attained through cosmetic surgery, rather than changing their looks in dramatic ways. In fact, major procedures like breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery and facelift all decreased over the last year.

Whether you are looking to enhance your appearance in subtle ways, or are interested in more dramatic changes in the Houston, Texas area, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today at 713-766-0071 or contact us online for a consultation.

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.
