Because BOTOX Cosmetic® is relatively simple to administer, a flourishing cottage industry has sprung up around the idea of so-called "BOTOX parties." These are gatherings at which a large number of people are injected with BOTOX Cosmetic®, often by an individual without the appropriate training or even a medical license.

Put as simply as possible, you should not attend these parties. They are dangerous. If you're considering BOTOX Cosmetic® in the Houston area, you should only consider specialized, trained plastic surgeons.

At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, our triple board-certified plastic surgeon administers BOTOX Cosmetic® as well as a range of other non-surgical skin treatments. He understands the complexities of facial muscles and knows how to properly administer a BOTOX Cosmetic® injection.

We often hear the question, "Is BOTOX Cosmetic® safe?" The answer is that the treatment possesses an excellent safety record when administered by a properly trained and educated plastic surgeon.

You need that plastic surgeon. And you need a sterile, safe medical facility like the one we have at The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center. A friend's living room is no place to receive a BOTOX Cosmetic® injection.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area, or if you're from out-of-state and need a plastic surgeon you can trust, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today for a consultation

Some patients in Houston and elsewhere think of liposuction as a procedure that's simple enough anyone can perform it. This misconception is based on the fact that liposuction really does possess an excellent safety record. It's quite commonly performed.

However, this does not mean that you should take your liposuction procedure lightly or choose a doctor based on cost. Put simply, when choosing a liposuction provider, you should base your decision on the same factors you would consider when evaluating the provider of any significant surgical procedure.

In short, look for specialized training and experience. Dr. Michael Eisemann has been performing liposuction and other plastic surgery procedures in Houston for decades and is triple board-certified.

Every year patients suffer tragic and avoidable injuries as a result of un-trained doctors performing liposuction in offices that aren't designed for the task and in circumstances which are not ideal for the procedure.

This doesn't have to happen. When performed by our uniquely experienced plastic surgeon, liposuction is a safe and effective method for removing stubborn deposits of fat from patients at or near their ideal bodyweight.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area, or if you're an out-of-town patient considering liposuction, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today for a consultation

At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we only perform procedures that are proven safe and effective. That means Houston-area women considering a breast augmentation should have confidence in the procedure's safety.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nearly 300,000 breast augmentations were performed in the United States in 2013. And the vast majority of those patients enjoyed a pleasant, safe experience with few significant complications.

Furthermore, the safety of the breast augmentation procedure is not meaningfully affected by the choices you make to customize your breast augmentation. You can enjoy a safe procedure if you opt for:

In fact, the decision that will most affect the safety of your breast augmentation will be your choice of surgeon. While the procedure is commonly performed and boasts an impressive safety record, it is still a complicated surgical procedure, which means it should be performed by a skilled, experienced plastic surgeon.

At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we believe in a decision-making process that takes your priorities into account. When deciding how we will place your breast implants, our Houston plastic surgeon will engage in a conversation with you about your goals and concerns.

The ability to customize your breast augmentation is one of the great appeals of the procedure. Breast implant placement is one of the big decisions you and Dr. Michael Eisemann will have to make.

You generally have two options:

  • Sub-muscular, which places the breast implant under the pectoral muscle. This provides a more natural look and a firmer base of support. However, this placement does require a lengthier recovery time.
  • Sub-glandular, which places the breast implant over the muscle. This placement shortens recovery time, provides more sharply defined cleavage and allows for larger implants. However, the implant will be more visible and prone to capsular contracture.

There are obviously advantages and disadvantages to both options, which is why it's important to choose a plastic surgeon who carefully listens to your concerns and priorities. The placement of your breast implants will be based on your body type, your implant type and your goals.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area and you want to talk to us about your breast implant options, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today for a consultation. We also help patients from across the country who are seeking the best possible plastic surgery experience.

Many of our Houston-area patients and those from across the country who consider us for top-notch plastic surgery, upon hearing of revision rhinoplasty, think of the procedure as a method for fixing the mistakes of past surgeons. The reality, however, is that revision rhinoplasty is very rarely about "mistakes." Indeed, there are a wide range of reasons one might undergo a revision rhinoplasty.

The rhinoplasty procedure is quite common, and the results are generally predictable. However, there are occasions when a patient is not completely satisfied with the results, even if the doctor didn't make a specific mistake.

That's where Dr. Michael Eisemann comes in. He has decades of experience helping the people of Houston and across the country address their post-surgical concerns with the revision rhinoplasty procedure. These patients have come in because:

  • They are not fully satisfied with the post-surgical appearance of their nose
  • They have increased difficulty breathing through their nose
  • They realize a choice they made for the original procedure isn't right for them

Whatever the specific nature of your concerns, Dr. Eisemann can help you decide if a revision rhinoplasty is the appropriate option.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area and you're considering a revision rhinoplasty, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today for a consultation. We also happily help patients from across the world who are looking for top-notch facial plastic surgery.

Many Houston-area patients (as well as those who come to us from out of town) considering facelift surgery worry about scars. This is completely understandable, and at The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, our triple board-certified plastic surgeon uses his decades of experience to minimize scarring.

The reality is that any plastic surgery procedure will result in some kind of scar; that's just what happens after an incision. A facelift isn't an exception. However, the procedure is designed to place the incision in an inconspicuous location, making it exceptionally difficult for anyone, even those closest to you, to spot.

There are a few different variations on the facelift procedure, but the traditional facelift requires an incision made behind the earlobe and, sometimes, another incision along the hairline. These are naturally inconspicuous locations, and once any resulting scars heal they are very difficult to spot.

And you have a further advantage when you come to our office for a facelift: Dr. Michael Eisemann. With decades of specialized experience in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Eisemann has helped thousands of patients from across the country who have come to his Houston-area office. He knows how to minimize scarring.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area, or if you're an out-of-town guest looking for the best possible facelift experience, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today for a consultation.

Most of our Houston patients are busy professionals with many time commitments. As such, you're probably worried about when you can get back to the office after undergoing a rhinoplasty procedure.

Recovery from rhinoplasty will vary from patient to patient. However, most patients are usually able to return to work a week or so after undergoing a rhinoplasty.

This will depend on the extent of your recovery and how much the bruising and tenderness that are a normal part of the post-surgical experience have faded. If you have a physically strenuous job your return to work might be slightly delayed.

Dr. Michael Eisemann will discuss a more detailed recovery timeline with you before you undergo your rhinoplasty. After your procedure, you will return to The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center for follow-up appointments. At these appointments, Dr. Eisemann will evaluate your recovery and advise you on how to proceed.

As a triple-board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Eisemann is uniquely experienced with facial plastic surgery. He has decades of experience helping the people of Houston and the surrounding areas with rhinoplasty and other procedures. This experience will help him minimize your recovery time.

If you live in Houston or anywhere else in the country and you're considering rhinoplasty, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today.
