October 19th is BRA Day 2016. If you are a breast cancer survivor who is considering breast reconstruction, call (855) 813-7077 to learn about your options.October 19th, 2016 is Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day (BRA Day), an annual event designed to bring attention to post-mastectomy and post-lumpectomy options for women. Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann is pleased to offer a range of breast reconstruction options – some of which can be performed the same day as your cancer removal – to help breast cancer patients restore balance to their upper body and achieve ideal symmetry following breast tissue removal.

Breast reconstruction is covered by most insurance policies. In fact, if your policy covers mastectomy or lumpectomy, it is required to cover the cost of reconstruction as well. Dr. Eisemann can work with your oncologist to help decrease surgical and recovery times, and to help simplify the insurance process. Our helpful staff will discuss all options with you during your initial breast reconstruction consultation at our Houston plastic surgery center to help ensure all potential resources are explored.

Breast cancer is an issue that has impacted millions of American women and their families, but it is treatable when caught early on. If you are a woman over the age of 40 it is important that you get a mammogram or x-ray screening every year and that you check yourself for lumps periodically as well. If you suspect a growth, it is important that you talk to your doctor immediately to determine if it is cancerous.

The American Cancer Society estimates over 246,000 women will develop breast cancer this year. One in twelve women will develop the disease within their lifetime. More than 40,000 women die from this disease in the U.S. every year. Swift removal of the tumor is the best way to guard against the loss of life.

If you have been diagnosed with cancer or if you are a breast cancer survivor who is considering breast reconstruction, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center online or by calling (855) 813-7077 to schedule a consultation today. Located in Houston, we serve women living in all areas of Texas and throughout the nation.

Houston Liposuction | How to get Rid of Love HandlesYou’ve probably seen the ads: “Six easy ways to get rid of love handles,” “Foods guaranteed to melt love handles,” and multiple variations on each theme. The truth, however, is that very few things can be done to completely eliminate love handles – even healthy diets and routine exercises – particularly when they have gotten large enough to truly detract from the body’s most appealing shape. But if diet and exercise cannot be relied on to eliminate love handles, what can? Are you stuck with love handles for life once they’ve developed?

Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann often recommends liposuction for the elimination of love handles. Unlike diet and exercise, liposuction immediately removes stubborn fat deposits, helping produce a look that is tight, toned, and appealing. What’s more, fat removed through liposuction cannot come back, meaning your results can be made permanent with only little effort on your part.

Committing to a healthy diet and basic exercise routine following your liposuction recovery is essential for maintaining results, but nothing extreme is required. In fact, making basically good choices is often enough to both keep new fat from accumulating and enhance the results gained through your Houston liposuction procedure. During your initial consultation, Dr. Eisemann can discuss this with you in greater detail to make sure you are provided the information you will need to make the most out of your post-liposuction body.

To schedule a liposuction consultation with our board-certified Houston plastic surgeon, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today. Dr. Eisemann welcomes liposuction patients from Sugar Land, Katy, The Woodlands, and all surrounding areas of Texas.

Medical Benefits of Tummy Tuck | Houston Plastic SurgeryDuring tummy tuck surgery, stubborn fat deposits and excess skin are removed from the midsection. Depending on your specific needs, Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann may also use tummy tuck surgery to tighten and reattach abdominal muscles that have separated due to weight gain or pregnancy. The end result of this procedure is a more toned and defined abdominal area, which can improve clothing options and assist in producing a look that is more attractive. But is there any health benefit to abdominoplasty?

Tummy tuck surgery removes excess fat deposits. This may have some health benefit as any reduction in fat reduce risks for serious disease. Tummy tuck also removes excess skin from the belly, which can help improve physical ability and make a wider range of exercises possible. However, unless steps are taken to improve and maintain overall health, a tummy tuck will not be capable of producing significant medical benefits.

Tummy tuck surgery is ideal as a springboard for a more active and healthy lifestyle. You can help ensure your procedure assists in overall health by committing to eating a well-balanced diet and getting at least 60 minutes of exercise every day. These things can be made easier by tummy tuck surgery, but the ultimate decision to see them through is yours alone. During your tummy tuck consultation at our Houston plastic surgery office, Dr. Eisemann can discuss this with you in greater detail and help you determine if this procedure is best for your needs.

To schedule your tummy tuck consultation, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center online or by calling (855) 813-7077 today.

To learn about the best breast implant placement for athletic and active women, call Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann at (855) 813-7077 todayIf you are an active woman, the placement of your breast implants will need to, in part, be based on which activities you most often engage in. Different placements can impact range of motion or make an implant more likely to rupture under certain circumstances – and while these issues are negligible for some women, they are not for those who engage in athletic activities. During your initial breast augmentation consultation with Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann, openly discussing your preferred activities will allow for customization of your procedure that minimizes risks of complication.

Breast implants do not interfere with athletic ability, nor are they more likely to rupture, ripple, or wrinkle in women who engage in strength training so long as they are placed correctly. With over 30 years of experience, our board-certified breast surgeon knows how to personalize each augmentation procedure to meet the varied needs of the individual. Discussing your athletic activities helps Dr. Eisemann properly plan your augmentation to meet your aesthetic needs without impacting your physical abilities.

Breast implant placement options offered at our Houston plastic surgery office include:

  • Subglandular – above the muscles in the chest and best for women who lift, rock climb, or otherwise rely heavily on arm and upper body strength
  • Submuscular – below the muscles in the chest and best for women who swim, run, and engage in team sports like soccer where running and swift body movements are needed

The best way to learn which of these is right for your needs is through a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Eisemann.

To schedule your initial consultation, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center online or by calling (855) 813-7077 today. We serve Houston, Katy, Sugar Land, and all surrounding Texas communities.

When performed by our triple-board-certified Houston plastic surgeon, the breast augmentation procedure is exceptionally safe and effective.Breast augmentation is major surgery. It should only be undertaken after significant research and consideration for your goals and priorities. At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we make sure the process moves forward at the proper pace- we never rush you into anything.

Safety is always the paramount concern with any surgical procedure. Fortunately, the breast augmentation procedure boasts an impressive safety record. You can feel confident in the procedure.

And more importantly, you can feel confident in the surgeon performing your augmentation. Dr. Eisemann is a triple-board-certified plastic surgeon with decades of experience in the Houston area. He's helped countless women like you achieve their aesthetic goals in a safe and comfortable environment.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area and you're looking for a safe breast augmentation experience, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center at (855) 813-7077. We also welcome out-of-town patients.

The Reality of Breast Augmentation: Safe, Effective

The basic breast augmentation procedure has been performed with some changes for decades. Over that time, we've learned a great deal about how your body responds to breast implants and how to minimize danger.  

The result of all this information is that the breast augmentation procedure is safer than ever. Hundreds of thousands of patients across the world undergo the procedure every year and experience no complications.

This experience has allowed us to even address concerns that have lingered for years, such as those related to silicone breast implants. We know now that these implants pose no unique dangers to patients in contrast to previous fears.

Still, we believe it's vital to fully inform you of potential risks, no matter how unlikely they are. You can only make an informed decision when you're given all the information you need. Some risks from breast augmentation include:

  • Capsular contracture
  • Implant rupture
  • Infection

The good news is that these issues are quite rare.

The Importance of Your Breast Augmentation Surgeon

It's important to remember one key point- all of the information about the safety of a breast augmentation relies upon the assumption that your surgeon is properly trained and educated. A surgeon who lacks the proper experience and training can pose a real danger to your health and well-being.

Put simply, your choice of breast augmentation surgeon matters. This is still significant surgery, and you should only trust your body to a doctor who has earned that trust.

During his decades of work as a plastic surgeon, Dr. Eisemann has become known as one of the country's finest providers of cosmetic surgery. Patients from around the country come to Houston for their breast augmentations because they know Dr. Eisemann will take care of them.

As a triple-board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Eisemann is uniquely positioned to help you with your breast augmentation needs.

If you're a Houston, Texas resident or if you're an out-of-town patient considering a breast augmentation, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center at (855) 813-7077 or contact us online.

Breast lift tape offers a temporary solution, but should not be seen as a suitable alternative to breast lift surgery. If you are ready for lasting results, call (855) 813-7077 todayBreast lift tape is designed to boost cleavage and provide support for those occasions when a strapless or backless dress make a bra unbecoming. However, in recent months, this adhesive solution has also been touted as a nonsurgical alternative to breast lift. Indeed, if you are committed to putting tape underneath and around your breasts every day, you could – possibly – use breast lift tape as an alternative to surgery. However, as with all things in life, tape is a poor substitute for actually correcting a problem.

Houston breast surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann is pleased to offer solutions that produce lasting and highly impressive results. With breast lift surgery, Dr. Eisemann can correct even the most pronounced levels of ptosis (sagging) and produce a look that is at once natural and youthful. Tape may help you breasts look temporarily firm and pert underneath your clothes, but only breast lift surgery works to provide those same benefits under all circumstances.

One thing breast lift tape can do that breast lift surgery cannot is enhance cleavage. However, breast lift tape accomplishes this by pushing sagging breast tissue up and center, often at the expense of symmetry. If you are interested in both volume increase and lift, Dr. Eisemann would be happy to discuss the option of adding breast implants to your lift procedure. This option helps ensure symmetry and balance while creating a fuller, more womanly look in the entire upper body. This and other breast surgery options can be discussed in greater detail during your visit with our board-certified Houston breast surgeon.

To schedule your breast lift consultation, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center online or by calling (855) 813-7077 today. Located in Houston, we welcome women from Katy, Sugar Land, and all surrounding areas.

If you have questions about the impact breast implants may have on pregnancy and nursing, call <a href=

During pregnancy, breast tissue will grow and breasts will become enlarged. If you have had breast augmentation, these changes may obscure your results. However, changes in the size and shape of the breasts during pregnancy are caused by hormones and milk production and, once you have finished breast feeding, will likely have very little impact on the long-term results of your initial augmentation procedure. If your results are altered or if you become unhappy with the appearance of your breasts following pregnancy and nursing, board-certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann would be happy to discuss revision and replacement options with you.

If you are unhappy with the ways pregnancy and nursing have impacted the appearance of your breasts, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center online or by calling our Houston office at (855) 813-7077 to schedule your private and confidential consultation.

A concern many women share is how breast implants will impact the production and flow of breast milk. For a majority of women, implants have no impact on the ability to breastfeed. There are, however, some procedural steps that can be taken to reduce breastfeeding complications following augmentation.

Be honest with Dr. Eisemann during your breast augmentation consultation about your future plans for children. This will enable him to make adjustments that help minimize any risks of breastfeeding complications.

The breast augmentation options that are often best for women who plan on having children are:

  • Inframammary incisions to eliminate the risk of reduced nipple sensitivity
  • Submuscular implant placement to help guard against a compression of milk ducts

During your breast augmentation consultation at our Houston office, Dr. Eisemann will discuss the benefits and limitations of each breast enhancement option to help make sure you are choosing those that will meet your needs now and in the future.

To schedule your initial consultation with our triple board-certified Houston breast surgeon, please call (855) 813-7077 today. We welcome women from Katy, Sugar Land, The Woodlands, and all surrounding Texas communities.

Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann offers three different breast augmentation incision options:

  • Transaxillary – placed in the natural folds of your armpits
  • Inframammary – placed in the creases where your breasts and chest meet
  • Periariolar – placed in the darker skin of the areola

As with all of the procedural and technical options involved in planning a breast augmentation procedure, the placement of your incisions will play a role in your final results. But how do you choose which breast implant incision location is best for your needs?

To learn about your breast augmentation incision options in Houston, call board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann at (855) 813-7077 todayCustomizing Your Procedure

The truth is, there is not a single breast augmentation incision that is best for every woman. Determining which option is best suited to your body and most likely to deliver exceptional results requires the assistance of a plastic surgeon with both experience and a commitment to producing results that complement and enhance your entire frame.

Houston breast augmentation surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has over 30 years of experience customizing these procedures for optimal results. Listed as one of the Top Plastic Surgeons in Texas by the “Guide to Top Doctors,” Dr. Eisemann takes time to personalize each breast augmentation to ensure the most pleasing outcomes.
