Gummy bear breast implants may last longer than other silicone options. To learn more, call Houston breast surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann at (855) 813-7077anatomic implants or form stable implants, look and feel nearly identical to natural breast tissue. This allows Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann greater flexibility with breast implant placement and helps ensure even those implants placed above the muscles in the chest produce a natural looking and feeling end result.

Gummy bear breast implants are able to produce a more natural appearance due to the consistency of their silicone gel filling. This consistency also works to prevent anatomic implants from leaking in the case of rupture, eliminating the risk of implant deflation and, along with it, the need for breast augmentation revision. However, because form stable breast implants are still relatively new, their longevity has yet to be established. It could be another 10 to 15 years before we have a clear idea of how long these advanced silicone breast implants will last.

While we do not know how long gummy bear breast implants will last, 10 years is the average amount of time traditional saline and silicone options retain their most optimal appearance. Of course, this varies from woman to woman and implants that last for 20 years or more are not at all uncommon. The best way to determine how long you can realistically expect your breast implants to last is to discuss your breast augmentation options, in person, with Dr. Eisemann.

Breast lift can reduce breast size. The solution? Combining lift with breast augmentation. To learn more in Houston, call (713) 790-1771 todayBreast lift surgery is a remarkably effective way to restore a firm and ideally contoured look to your upper body. With this procedure, board-certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann can eliminate loose and sagging skin, restore nipple appearance, and lift sagging breast tissue to produce a perkier and fully restored aesthetic. But in the process, breast size may be slightly reduced.

A slight reduction in breast size is not an issue for every woman. In fact, for some women, this minor change in size is necessary for achieving full-body symmetry. Others however may find even the smallest loss of volume problematic. In these cases, Dr. Eisemann suggests combining breast lift with breast augmentation.

Breast augmentation is naturally complementary to breast lift surgery. Dr. Eisemann can use the same incisions for sculpting and lifting the breasts to insert breast implants, allowing this combination to be completed during a single surgical procedure and helping you achieve optimal results in the shortest time possible.

You may benefit from lift with breast augmentation if volume loss is of concern. Other benefits offered by this combination include a more balanced upper body and an enhanced profile. Dr. Eisemann would be happy to discuss these and other benefits offered by a combination of breast augmentation and lift during your initial consultation at our Houston office.

If you are considering breast enhancement, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center online or by calling (713) 790-1771 today. Located in Houston, our board-certified plastic surgeon welcomes patients from Katy, Sugar Land, The Woodlands, and all surrounding areas.

This is, of course, not the case for everyone and remains a decision best made between you and your Houston breast surgeon.

Houston Breast Augmentation Questions | What is the Perfect Breast Shape?Standards of beauty can vary wildly and what is considered the peak of attractiveness on one woman may not be at all complementary on another. However, when it comes to the perfect breast shape, there seems to be a fair amount of consensus.

In a survey conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 1,315 respondents – including 53 board-certified plastic surgeons – were asked to rate the attractiveness of breasts based on images alone. 87% of women, 90% of men, and 94% of plastic surgeons surveyed identified breasts with a ratio of 45:55 as being perfectly shaped. With this ratio, 45% of breast tissue is above the nipple and 55% below. This ratio is in line with the natural contours of the typical female breast, indicating that men, along with women, prefer breasts that look anatomically possible.

Board-certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann understands that each woman has different contours and no single breast shape is complementary to each one. Bringing over 30 years of experience, Dr. Eisemann offers breast augmentation techniques that allow him to fully customize each procedure and produce the breast shape ideally suited to the natural curves and unique anatomy of each patient. If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your breasts, we encourage you to call our Houston office at (855) 813-7077 or to contact us online to schedule a breast augmentation consultation and learn how Dr. Eisemann can help you achieve the look of your dreams.

Pros and Cons of RhinoplastyRhinoplasty is an increasing popular procedure. It is the most common cosmetic procedure among teenagers and young adults.

Although rhinoplasty procedures are so popular, that does not necessarily make one right for you. Before having a nose job, weigh the pros and cons to decide for yourself. Consider these pros and cons:

Pros

  • Better health: if you have trouble sleeping due to breathing problems, frequent sinus infections, or upper respiratory problems, you may receive relief after a nose job. Also, by breathing better you may live a healthier lifestyle and have an easier time losing weight.
  • Better breathing: there are many benefits to better breathing, but two of the most common ailments which are improved are deviated septum and sleep apnea. Sleep apnea can lead to further health concerns which correcting your breathing can alleviate.

Cons

  • Expectations don't match outcome: many people have an unrealistic expectation for their rhinoplasty. Speaking with Dr. Eisemann will help you to get a better understanding of the possible outcomes.
  • Lengthy recovery time: open procedures have longer recovery times and can make you feel awkward as you may need to wear a bandage on your nose. Closed procedures are less invasive and recovery time is usually about a week.
