To learn about your breast implant options, call Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann at (855) 813-7077 and schedule a consultation today.The FDA has recently approved Allergan’s Natrelle Inspira Cohesive, a new cohesive gel breast implant that may more closely resemble breast tissue, even when placed above the muscles in the chest. Similar to gummy bear breast implants, this new option uses advanced silicone filling to produce a more natural look and feel. What makes these breast implants different is the amount of filling used.

Natrelle Inspira Cohesive breast implants are designed to hold a greater amount of filling than other implant options. The additional silicone gel allows for a firmer, fuller, and more lifted breast appearance without requiring a larger implant size. And just like the form stable breast implants these expand on, the cohesive gel helps prevent aesthetic imperfections and may even extend your breast augmentation results.

During your initial consultation with Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann, all of these options will be discussed in detail, providing you with the information you need to make an informed decision about your breast enlargement procedure.

Please call (855) 813-7077 to schedule a consultation with Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann and learn how best to prepare for your procedure Nicotine is a vascular constrictor. This means that it works to constrict veins and arteries, slowing blood flow and, along with it, the body’s natural healing response. Smokers typically experience less rewarding plastic surgery results due to this longer recovery period, which often produces thick and visible scars. Smoking also increases risks for infection and other postoperative complications, making it something board-certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann will recommend you quit at least six weeks prior to your procedure. But is “quitting” with e-cigarettes a good option?

A new study published in the December issue of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, the official online medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, finds that e-cigarettes are just as bad for surgical recovery as traditional tobacco. This is because it is nicotine, not any of the thousands of other chemicals in cigarette smoke, which slows healing. If you are a smoker who is looking into plastic surgery in Houston, you will need to eliminate nicotine from your body in the weeks leading up to your procedure. Patches, gums, e-cigarettes, and other nicotine replacement options do not help reduce risks of complication and must be given up for optimal results.

As we enter 2017, committing to your health can include quitting smoking as well as looking into body contouring procedures that can help provide greater ease of movement and a tighter, more toned physique. Dr. Eisemann and our helpful staff welcome an opportunity to meet with you and discuss your goals, and to provide information on how we can help you reach them.

Gynecomastia is a condition in which excessive tissue in the chest produces a more feminine appearance. Impacting men of all ages, this condition may be related to weight fluctuations, but can also be caused by genetics, certain medications, and hormone imbalances. Regardless of its cause, gynecomastia can feel emasculating and detract significantly from the appearance of the upper body. Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann can address this issue – even when glandular – to restore a firm, attractive, and masculine look through male breast reduction.

Is Male Breast Reduction a Good Fit for Me | Houston, TXTo be a good candidate for male breast reduction you should be:

  • In good health
  • Close to your ideal weight
  • Ready to undergo a surgical procedure
  • Able to take time off for a short recovery period
  • Prepared to take steps to maintain your results

Male breast reduction is most typically performed with liposuction. Once fatty tissue has been removed through male liposuction, it won’t come back. However, unless dietary and lifestyle choices are made to maintain results, new fat will accumulate. If you need guidance or assistance in determining the types of activities and food choices that can help you maintain your male breast reduction results, we can give suggestions during your time in our care.

If you are looking to muscularly enhance your chest following male breast reduction, you may also wish to consider talking to our board-certified Houston plastic surgeon about pectoral implants. These can produce a chiseled and toned appearance without the physical strain and potential risks of weight training. Dr. Eisemann would be happy to discuss this in greater detail if it is something you are interested in during your initial consultation.

Breast lift surgery addresses loose skin and sagging tissue in the bust.

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.
