We often emphasize the importance of finding a truly experienced and capable plastic surgeon when you are considering revision rhinoplasty. This emphasis includes a discussion of the difficulties of a second rhinoplasty procedure.

Revision rhinoplasty is a complicated, sensitive procedure. Your nose has always been a rather fragile thing- the boned within it are small and easy to break, and the internal tissue needs a deft touch to re-shape. And space is limited.

All of these facts remain true after your rhinoplasty. But the situation is even more delicate: the bones and tissue of your nose have already been re-shaped. They are even more vulnerable than before.

Fortunately, this does not mean that there are no solutions. In fact, revision rhinoplasty can correct common problems associated with nasal re-shaping safety. But it does mean that finding the right surgeon is incredibly important.

Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann has decades of experience with the revision rhinoplasty procedure. He has the deft touch needed to delicately re-shape the structure of your nose. He understands how to perform the procedure in such a way as to ensure your safety.

If you're a Houston, Texas resident considering revision rhinoplasty, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center at 855-813-7077 or contact us online today.

At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we believe in easing your mind by answering all of your questions, addressing your concerns and providing you with the information you need about your procedure. If you're a Houston-area patient considering a facelift, learning more about the procedure can increase your level of confidence and relaxation.

The procedure itself is quite safe, commonly performed and effective at tightening loose skin and remove signs of age and wear.

During a facelift, Dr. Eisemann will make an incision in an inconspicuous location-it will not be noticeable by anyone with whom you are speaking. Once the incision is complete, Dr. Eisemann will lift and tighten skin and tissue and remove excess or sagging fat. The incision is closed and you are done.

The end result is a tighter, smoother, more youthful facial appearance that can last for up to a decade. The results are quite impressive, and our patients invariably walk away thrilled with what we have achieved for them.

If you're a Houston, Texas resident considering a facelift,  please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center at 855-813-7077 or contact us online today. We also welcome out-of-town patients who are seeking a safe, confidential plastic surgery experience.

It's not difficult to find horror stories from women who received breast implants from less-than-qualified plastic surgeons and ended up with disastrous results. Stories of implant rupture are among the most common. Fortunately, implant rupture is actually quite rare.

Modern breast implants are durable, finely engineered pieces of technology. They're made from advanced materials and are designed to withstand significant stress and strain.

At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we only offer safe, traceable breast implants. We ensure that any implants we place meet exacting standards of safety and effectiveness. You can trust in our materials.

And you can count on our surgeon. As a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Eisemann has a unique familiarity with the vital details of the breast augmentation procedure. While implant rupture is a risk, it's quite an unlikely one when your implants are placed by Dr. Eisemann.

The same cannot necessarily be said of all doctors offering breast implants. Risk of rupture or any other complication is greatly increased when the doctor performing the procedure lacks the appropriate training and experience or uses sub-par materials.

If you're a Houston, Texas woman with questions about breast implants, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center at 855-813-7077 or contact us online today. We also welcome patients from across the country.

At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we always urge our Houston-area patients to take their time when recovering from breast enlargement. The procedure, while quite safe, is still major surgery, and it places a significant strain on your body. If you follow Dr. Eisemann's guidelines and recovery timeline, you'll be able to recover safely and securely.

Breast enlargement recovery is unique for every woman. Everyone's body is different and heals at different speeds. That said, most of our patients are able to return to work about a week after their procedure.

This follows a day or two of rest, which you should take seriously. Be sure you make arrangements to have household errands taken care of while you recover.

There will be some swelling and discomfort for several weeks following your breast enlargement, and it's best to hold off on intense workouts (especially those that place a great strain on your chest) for a while.

Dr. Eisemann will provide you with a more detailed timeline and answer all of your questions before you undergo your procedure.

If you're a Houston, Texas woman considering a breast enlargement, or if you're an out-of-town patient looking for top-notch plastic surgery, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center at 855-813-7077 or contact us online today.

"Body contouring" is a plastic surgery term that some Houston-area patients might find confusing. What exactly does body contouring mean? What procedures qualify as body contouring?

A body contouring procedure such as liposuction is designed to re-shape some aspect of your body that you find troublesome. These procedures are referred to as "body contouring" because they're generally appropriate for someone who is at or near their ideal bodyweight.

Body contouring procedures aren't about making an unhealthy body a healthy one. They're about using safe, proven surgical techniques to help the look of your body more accurately reflect your diet and exercise regimen.

Body contouring procedures performed by triple-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann include:

Dr. Eisemann will help you decide if one or more of these procedures is appropriate for your needs and goals.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area, or if you're an out-of-town patient, and you're considering liposuction or some other body contouring procedure, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today.

At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we believe in helping our Houston-area patients customize their liposuction experience as much as possible. Tumescent liposuction is a common choice if you're looking to remove excess deposits of fat.

We offer a number of liposuction procedure options so that you can achieve the results you desire. Tumescent liposuction involves the injection of a diluted local anesthetic into the treatment area.

This has a number of positive effects. First, it negates the need for any general anesthetic or pain-killing sedatives. Second, it makes the fat in the treatment area easier to reach and remove.

This process is exceptionally safe and proven. In fact, tumescent liposuction is also designed to reduce any potential blood loss from a liposuction procedure.

Of course, tumescent liposuction is just one of your options. Our triple-board certified plastic surgeon will discuss your options with you and help you decide if tumescent liposuction is appropriate.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area and you're considering a liposuction procedure, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today.

If you're a Houston-area woman considering a breast augmentation, you should be aware of the anatomic breast implant, an exciting innovation in the field of cosmetic surgery.

Form stable anatomic breast implants are more commonly known as "gummy bear implants," because the form and consistency of the material bears a resemblance to gummy bears. However, that moniker belies just how impressive these breast implants are.

Anatomic breast implants are designed, above all else, to provide women undergoing a breast augmentation with a more natural appearance. Anatomic implants look and feel more natural than traditional round implants.

They have other advantages, including:

  • A decreased risk of rupture
  • Reduced risk of capsular contracture
  • Decreased risk of bottoming out

Placing anatomic breast implants requires a skilled plastic surgeon with ample experience in the field. Dr. Michael Eisemann is a triple board-certified plastic surgeon. He understands the challenges and opportunities of these anatomic implants and knows how to place them safely and in a way that maximizes your results.

If you're a Houston, Texas woman and you want to learn more about anatomic breast implants, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today. We also welcome out-of-town patients from around the country and the world.

Non-surgical skin treatment is popular with many of our Houston plastic surgeon's patients because it is simpler and less invasive than surgical options. These procedures also come with reduced recovery time- quite often, that recovery time is nothing at all.

But there's still some reluctance regarding laser skin therapy, including SmartSkin+™. The word "laser" has certain connotations, and those connotations are often of the dangerous and risky variety.

The reality, however, is that modern medical lasers are the farthest thing from dangerous or risky. The lasers our plastic surgeon uses are exceptionally precise, accurate and safe. We can use laser skin therapy to target specific cosmetic imperfections, eliminating them while leaving surrounding skin cells untouched.

There might be some minor redness or soreness after a laser skin procedure, but these are normal and short-lived. Laser skin therapy has a lengthy track record of safety and effectiveness.

At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we would never perform any procedure whose safety is a matter of debate. We offer laser skin therapy because our triple-board certified plastic surgeon knows it can safely achieve your cosmetic goals. You can trust in Dr. Eisemann's decades of experience in the field.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area, or if you're an out-of-town patient, and you're considering laser skin therapy, you should arrange a consultation with our plastic surgeon. Please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today.

Age can affect our faces in many different ways. Wrinkles are among the most famous and common. However, many Houston-area residents considering a facelift are primarily concerned with sagging facial skin.

Facial fat is incredibly important for a youthful, vital-looking face. It provides structure and support to the skin and keeps the skin looking plump and fresh. However, as we age the fat slowly begins to fall. That drop is relatively subtle, but the aesthetic effects are often dramatic.

Sagging cheeks and jowls are unsightly and unpleasant. However, they can be addressed through a facelift procedure. We will lift and tighten the skin and facial muscles, creating a youthful, revitalized appearance that has no sagging skin or jowls.

A facelift is particularly helpful if you have significant cosmetic concerns, including particularly pronounced sagging and drooping. If you're younger and the problems are localized around the cheek area, a mid-facelift might be appropriate.

We'll be happy to evaluate your needs and determine if a facelift is appropriate for you.

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

Liposuction removes stubborn deposits of fat that don't respond to diet and exercise. However, that fat is sometimes rather tightly packed or exist in areas of the body that are difficult to access. These fat cells can still be safely removed, but that removal can often result in increased swelling and bruising.

Fortunately, there are liposuction procedure options that address these problems. Specifically, ultrasonic liposuction.

With ultrasonic liposuction, our triple board-certified plastic surgeon can make the liposuction experience easier and more pleasant, with a greatly reduced recovery time afterward.

Ultrasonic liposuction uses powerful but safe ultrasound waves to break up deposits of fat. These fat cells are liquefied, making them significantly easier to remove and greatly reducing trauma to the surrounding tissue.

Furthermore, ultrasonic liposuction boasts the same impressive safety record as the traditional procedure.

If you're a Houston, Texas resident curious about the potential of ultrasonic liposuction, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today for a consultation.
