Upper Arm Shaping In Houston

One of the chief complaints we receive from women over 40 at The Eisemann Cosmetic Surgery Center relates to the upper arms (between the armpit and elbow).  The complaints generally have to do with excess fat or skin laxity.  Both problems can be addressed with plastic surgery, and the medical term for sculpting the upper arm is brachioplasty.  Excess fat in the upper arm can be addressed by making small incisions in the underarm and near the elbow so that a liposuction small cannula may remove excess fat.  This approach is used to avoid visible scarring, and usually the small incisions are hidden in the contours of the body.  Following brachioplasty, your plastic surgeon may require you to wear compression garments on the arms in order to control swelling and prevent fluid build up.  Compression garments are also used to help the skin conform to the new contours of the patient’s arms.  Usually, the patient may return to work in about one week and resume normal activities within two to three weeks.  Following surgery and the healing process, our patients are excited to again wear sleeveless tops and strapless dresses without the worry of jiggly “bat wing” arms.

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.
