Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Serving Areas Near Houston & Sugar Land, TX

November 6th, 2017

When going through your day-to-day, it can be easy to get thrown off balance health-wise. But giving in to these bad habits can also affect your skin and the way it may look and feel. If you’ve woken up lately to excessively oily, overly dry, or sagging skin, you may be able to make some adjustments to get the healthy, glowing skin you’ve been craving.

Here’s a combo of 5 simple tips and tricks, as well as recommended procedures from the best plastic surgeon in Houston to aim for a healthy new look that lasts well beyond the upcoming new year.

Healthy Glowing Skin

Put your best face forward

With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Eisemann has had numerous successful surgeries performing on patients who have wanted a facelift, or rhytidectomy. This type of treatment can give skin a firmer appearance without that pulled-too-tight look. After the surgery, keep your new look in the best shape possible by staying hydrated and drinking water throughout the day.


Practice constant care

Get yourself into a speedy morning routine and follow the two basic skin care steps of cleansing and moisturizing. Start by targeting areas where you need the most assistance such as acne breakouts, dry patches, or redness. Once you’ve found products that works for you, use them and see the change. Anything with SPF can be a huge bonus, but if there’s existing damage you may want to look into other treatments. Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL) can prove to be the best extra step to take to diminish sun spots, age spots, and visible veins and capillaries. With no down time, you can get right back on schedule.


Work it out

Pop a 30 minute sweat session into your day to get the blood flowing. Blood pumping through the body during an awesome workout means that blood cells are carrying oxygen and nutrients wherever they may be needed, including your skin. If a trip to the gym just isn’t enough, consider some fine detailing with a chin augmentation—also known as a genioplasty—performed by triple-board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Eisemann. This method gives patients a better profile by chiseling the face using implants, or by adjusting the bone itself.


Berries & BOTOX®

Take some time to fuel up on delicious food options that pack a powerful supplement punch. Snacking on fruits like blueberries, and blackberries can give your skin some essential antioxidants for an extra boost. To further prevent signs of aging, look toward our Houston cosmetic surgery center and see what BOTOX® can do for you to help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles for upwards of 18 months.


Rest up

Sleeping the minimum 8 hours is key to skin’s health. Nighttime is when your skin cells renew and prepare your face for a new day. But for those who have little time to get to bed, eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty, may help. This procedure can be done on the upper or lower lid to give eyes a more awakened appearance. After your new lids have healed, continue a good nighttime regime and try to get some rest.

Houston Breast AugmentationBreast augmentation is the most popular plastic surgery procedure in the United States. Since the year 2000, there has been a 37% increase in the number of breast augmentations performed by board-certified plastic surgeons in the United States annually. And there are good reasons for this procedure’s popularity: it can have a profoundly positive impact on self-esteem, improve clothing options, and enhance the entire frame without serious risks or a drawn-out recovery period.

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts, call Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann at 855-813-7077 to schedule a breast augmentation consultation today. We welcome women from Sugar Land, Katy, Conroe, The Woodlands, and all surrounding areas of Texas.

What Can Breast Augmentation Address?

With breast augmentation, implants are used to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. This allows Dr. Eisemann to address issues such as:

  • Breasts that are too small for the frame
  • Unflattering breast shape
  • Asymmetrical breast tissue
  • Inadequate cleavage
  • Lack of breast projection

With breast augmentation, our board-certified Houston plastic surgeon can improve the shape, projection, size, and symmetry of the breasts to produce a look that is complementary to all of your physical features. With over three decades in practice, Dr. Eisemann has the experience necessary to produce natural-looking results that serve to improve the contours of your entire body. Call us and schedule your consultation today to learn more.

Breast augmentation cannot improve ptosis (sagging breast tissue). For this purpose, a breast lift will be best. Combining breast lift with augmentation is an option for some women, but not necessary for all. Dr. Eisemann will listen to your concerns, assess your frame, and discuss any suitable solutions during your initial consultation.

What are My Breast Augmentation Incision Options?

Houston breast implant incision optionsThere are three traditional breast augmentation incision options:

  • Periareolar – this incision is made in the dark skin of the areola, just around the nipple, where any scarring will easily be obscured
  • Inframammary – this incision is made underneath the breast, in the crease where the lower curve of the breast meets the chest, allowing incisions to be hidden in the natural folds of the chest
  • Transaxillary – this incision is made in the folds of the armpit, eliminating any risk of visible scars on or around the breasts

A fourth option, TUBA, uses endoscopic tools to insert the breast implant through the belly button. This incision removes the surgeon from the treatment area and limits many breast augmentation options including where the implants can be placed and what type of breast implant can be used. It is therefore not an option offered at our Houston plastic surgery center.

The location of your incisions will be dependent on factors such as your lifestyle, clothing preferences, and ultimate goals. Dr. Eisemann will discuss all of these things with you during your initial consultation to make sure you are choosing the incision location most suitable for your needs.

Where can My Breast Implants be Placed?

There are two primary breast implant placement options:

  • Subglandular – with this placement, implants are inserted below breast tissue, but above the muscles in the chest. Subglandular implant placement is best for women with sufficient breast tissue, enabling the edges of the implants to be fully covered
  • Submuscular – with this placement, breast implants are inserted below the muscles of the chest. This deeper placement allows implant edges to be covered even in women with very little natural breast tissue. Submuscular implant placement may also reduce risks of implant failure, visible implant imperfections, and a rare breast augmentation complication called capsular contracture

The breast implant placement option that is best for you, like all breast augmentation options, will depend largely on your anatomy, lifestyle, and desires. There are benefits and limitations with both options which Dr. Eisemann will discuss with you during your initial consultation to help you make the decision that is best for your particular needs.

What Types of Breast Implants Does Dr. Eisemann Offer?

Our board-certified Houston breast surgeon offers both saline and silicone breast implants. Both types of implant can be round or teardrop shaped. Both types of breast implant can be textured or smooth, and both types can be placed above or below the muscles in the chest.

Breast Implant Types in Houston Saline breast implants are filled after they have been placed. This reduces incision size and allows for minor adjustments in volume after the implant has been placed. Depending on implant location, however, saline options may not look and feel as natural as silicone alternatives and may be more prone to visible imperfections such as rippling, wrinkling, and double-bubble. These issues are greatly reduced when saline breast implants are placed below the muscles of the chest.

Silicone breast implants are filled prior to placement and require a slightly larger incision. The tradeoff is in look, feel, and longevity. Silicone implants, even when placed above chest muscles, tend to look and feel more like natural breast tissue. Due to the viscosity of their filling, silicone implants are also much less likely to ripple, wrinkle, or fold, and may outlast their saline counterparts by serval years.

Form stable implants (“gummy bear breast implants”) are an advanced silicone option that perfectly mimics breast tissue. This type of implant may last longer than even other silicone options, making them ideal for many patients.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Eisemann will discuss your breast implant options to help you choose the one that will best produce the look you desire.

Financing Your Breast Augmentation Procedure

At the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we accept cash and all major credit cards for breast augmentation surgery. We also work with several breast augmentation financing companies that offer a range of payment options.

If you have questions about financing your procedure, our patient coordinator will be happy to provide you with more information during your time in our care.

Male Breast Reduction in Houston

Gynecomastia is derived from Greek and Latin words that translate to “woman-like breasts.” An emasculating condition, gynecomastia can make even the healthiest of men look less appealing and may have a profound impact on emotional wellbeing and overall satisfaction – both with your body and your life. Unfortunately, diet and exercise are often not enough to address this condition and can, instead, tone areas around enlarged breast tissue, further highlighting the womanly appearance of your chest.

If you suffer from gynecomastia, Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann can help. Please call our office at 855-813-7077 to schedule a consultation and learn more.

What Causes Gynecomastia?

Enlarged breasts in males may be caused by a number of factors. Some of the most common are:

  • Weight gain
  • A sedentary lifestyle
  • Hormone fluctuations

These causes of gynecomastia may be exacerbated by contributing factors such as:

  • Certain medications – some antianxiety medications, antidepressants, ulcer medications, cancer treatments, antiandrogens, and gastric motility medications can cause enlarged male breast tissue
  • Herbal products – tea tree oil and lavender mimic estrogen in the body and can lead to excess tissue production in the chests of males
  • Illicit and street drugs – amphetamines, heroin, and marijuana are all linked to gynecomastia
  • Health conditions – hypogonadism, hyperthyroidism, kidney failure, cirrhosis, and tumors can contribute to male breasts

Alcohol and steroids are also contributing factors, as is age. Gynecomastia is common in adolescent boys and older males, though in the former group the condition often self-corrects before early adulthood.

Risk factors for gynecomastia include general inactivity and poor dietary choices, but genetic factors and health conditions play a role as well. During your consultation with our board-certified Houston plastic surgeon, we will determine the causes of your condition and, from there, the most effective course of treatment.

How is Gynecomastia Treated?

Houston Male Breast Reduction Gynecomastia is treated through male breast reduction. This procedure varies depending on what is causing your womanly breasts, but can typically be achieved through:

  • Liposuction to remove excess fat deposits
  • Excision of unneeded glandular tissue

For both options, a small incision will be made in the chest through which Dr. Eisemann can remove the unnecessary and unsightly tissue. Once removed, this tissue cannot come back, though new accumulations of fat will appear if proper care is not taken to avoid weight gain. We will discuss this in greater detail during your initial consultation to ensure you are prepared to maintain your male breast reduction results for a lifetime.

What is Recovery from Male Breast Reduction Like?

Recovery from gynecomastia surgery is similar to recovery from liposuction. Some bruising, swelling, and discomfort are likely unavoidable in the days following your procedure. Discomfort can be dealt with through prescription medications provided by Dr. Eisemann. Swelling can be reduced through the use of compression garments. Bruising will subside on its own.

Swelling can further be reduced through mild forms of exercise such as swimming or walking. You will want to keep your incisions clean and avoid submerging the treatment area in water for a few weeks, but walking is a safe and comfortable option that can be done with as much frequency as you desire.

Most men are able to return to work within two to five days. Dr. Eisemann will talk to you about when you can expect to resume all normal work duties during your follow up appointments. If your job is physically demanding, you may need to wait for two to four weeks before resuming all normal duties. Four weeks is also the time at which you can expect to be physically prepared to take on more advanced forms of exercise.

Maintaining Male Breast Reduction Results

Plastic Surgery for Men in HoustonThe easiest ways to maintain your male breast reduction results is by adopting a healthy lifestyle. If your condition is the result of medications, you may need to talk to your doctor about alternatives. If illicit drug use, steroid use, or alcohol consumption have played a role, you will need to reconsider those choices. Healthy lifestyles support gynecomastia surgery results. Drug use, a poor diet, and inactivity will work in the opposite direction.

What is a healthy diet? Simply put, one that relies mostly on fresh and whole foods. Try to avoid processed foods, fast food, foods and beverages high in sugar and salt, and anything that your grandparents would not have recognized as edible. What does that leave? Almost everything.

Male breast reduction surgery can act as a springboard for a healthier and more satisfying life. Explore new tastes and exciting food options to make your diet healthy. Good foods to choose from include:

  • Fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Nuts and legumes
  • Lean proteins such as fish, chicken, and tofu
  • Complex carbohydrates

If you have troubles finding a diet that you enjoy, work with a nutritionist to develop a meal plan that supports your male breast reduction results.

Exercise is an essential component of weight management, but what does an effective exercise routine look like? 30 minutes of moderate activity daily and at least 90 minutes of more progressive exercise weekly should do the trick.

A good exercise routine can include:

  • Swimming
  • Yoga or Pilates
  • Speed walking or jogging

These things can be done every day, many in or around your own home, and should be easy to incorporate into your daily routine.

More cardio-intensive exercises that should be performed for at least 90 minutes weekly include:

  • Power or heated yoga
  • Group aerobic or spin classes
  • Running
  • Competitive or team sports

If you wish to enhance your results and highlight your chest, you may wish to engage in activities including:

  • Boot camp or CrossFit classes
  • Weight training

If you have a hard time finding a plan you enjoy, work with a personal trainer to optimize your routine. Dr. Eisemann also offers pectoral implants for men who wish to have a more muscular-looking chest. This, along with other forms of male plastic surgery, can be discussed in greater detail during your visit to our office.

Houston ENT Dr. Michael Eisemann works with most major insurance carriers to cover the cost of balloon sinuplasty. If you struggle with chronic sinusitis, call 855-813-7077 to schedule a balloon sinuplasty consultation with Dr. Eisemann. During this consultation, our patient coordinator can discuss payment options, including insurance, to help you plan for your nonsurgical sinusitis treatment.

Will My Insurance Pay for Balloon Sinuplasty?

Houston Sinuplasty Insurance Payments | Balloon Sinuplasty and InsuranceWhile we work with most insurance carriers at our Houston office, not all insurance policies will pay for nonsurgical sinus treatments. It is always a good idea to review your policy and talk with an agent to determine if your provider will cover the costs of balloon sinuplasty.

If your insurer will not cover the cost of treatment or if you do not have insurance coverage, we offer a range of balloon sinuplasty financing options with special rates and incentives that can be used alone or in combination to pay for your procedure. These options can be discussed with our patient coordinator during your initial sinus treatment consultation.

Why Consider Balloon Sinuplasty?

Balloon sinuplasty is a nonsurgical treatment for chronic sinusitis that can help relieve painful congestion, chronic headaches, and other issues brought about by sinus infection. A safe and suitable treatment for seasonal allergies as well as post nasal drip, balloon sinuplasty works to open nasal passages and eliminate breathing difficulties brought about by all types of sinus irritation.

Balloon sinuplasty does not require incisions or general anesthesia, allowing the procedure to enjoy a very short recovery period with few risks for complication. During your initial consultation, Dr. Eisemann will discuss the procedure in more detail and answer any questions you may have to help ensure you are making the decision best for your needs.

To schedule your consultation with our triple board-certified surgeon, please call 855-813-7077 today. Located in Houston, Dr. Eisemann welcomes patients from The Woodlands, Katy, Sugar Land, Pearland, and all surrounding areas.

To learn about male breast reduction financing in Houston, contact board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann and schedule your consultation todayMale breast reduction is a safe and effective way to address gynecomastia – a condition in which excessive fat or glandular tissue give a feminine appearance to the chest. Embarrassing and emasculating, gynecomastia is often linked to hormonal changes, but can also be the result of lifestyle choices, certain medications, and the process of aging.

Because there can be a number of underlying factors causing gynecomastia, no single treatment option will be suitable for every man.  Some men respond well to liposuction alone. Others will need to have glandular tissue surgically removed. Others still may need a combination of services for full correction of their condition.

The best way to learn which of these options will produce the results you deserve is through a private and confidential consultation with Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann. During this consultation Dr. Eisemann will evaluate your condition, discuss treatment options, and help you choose which one is right for your needs.

Call us at 855-813-7077 to schedule your consultation and learn more.

In addition to cash and credit card payments, we welcome male breast reduction financing from several reputable companies including Parasail, Prosper, CareCredit, and Alphaeon. When you come to our Houston office for your treatment consultation, we can provide you with information on each of these companies to help you find the one that meets your needs.

If you live in the Houston area and suffer from a deviated septum, triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann can help. Contact our office to schedule your consultation todayYour nasal septum separates your right and left nostrils. Very few people have completely symmetrical nostrils, though for many, these minor variances cause no real problems.

Septum deviation occurs when the wall between the nostrils is significantly displaced – typically through trauma or genetics. A deviated septum can result in chronic problems including:

  • Nasal pain
  • Headaches
  • Mouth breathing
  • Snoring
  • Loss of smell
  • Post-nasal drip

Septum deviation can also result in physical deformity, making the nose look crooked and out of place. Unlike sinusitis, balloon sinuplasty will not be enough to correct a deviated septum. Permanently moving cartridge requires a more advanced surgical approach.

Nose Surgery

The most common solution for septum deviation is rhinoplasty, also known as nose surgery or a nose job. With this procedure, Houston nose surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann can permanently straighten the nasal wall, widening nostrils and putting an end to the labored breathing and chronic pain that often come with a deviated septum, while also addressing the physical imperfections caused by this common condition.

During your rhinoplasty consultation, Dr. Eisemann will assess all of your nasal deformities and help you understand what nose surgery may be able to accomplish for you.

Why Choose Dr. Eisemann?

Dr. Michael Eisemann is a board-certified plastic surgeon. He is also board-certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, making him uniquely equipped to perform complex nasal surgeries. Assistant Clinical Professor of Otolaryngology and Neck Surgery at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston for the past 40 years, Dr. Eisemann is highly respected and a trusted expert in his field.

With over three decades in practice as a plastic surgeon, Dr. Eisemann knows how to blend the artistic side of his practice with the medical, allowing him to produce rhinoplasty results that restore physical comfort while producing a naturally appealing look. During your initial consultation, Dr. Eisemann will carefully evaluate your nose, discuss all of your options, and help you decide if rhinoplasty is the right fit for your needs.

Liposuction in HoustonWhen plastic surgery procedures make their way into the popular consciousness, myths often abound. Reality gets stretched into something unrecognizable. And potential patients gain a completely skewed idea of what a procedure entails.

Liposuction is no exception. At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we often have potential patients who come to a consultation with a completely unrealistic portrait of the liposuction procedure.

This page is our way of addressing some common myths and providing you with a few important points. Reading it will give you more than enough information to understand the basics of the procedure so that you can arrange a consultation with confidence.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area or you're an out-of-town patient looking for safe, credible liposuction, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today at 713-766-0071 for a consultation.

Just The Facts

We believe it's crucially important that you have all the relevant information before making a decision on liposuction or any other plastic surgery procedure. This means answering your questions and addressing your concerns in a respectful, understanding environment.

Here's what you should know about liposuction:

  • The procedure is quite safe: You've probably heard horror stories about botched liposuction procedures. But while there is always a risk of a complication with any surgical procedure, liposuction has an extraordinarily impressive safety record. Every year hundreds of thousands of patients undergo liposuction without experiencing any meaningful complications.
  • Your Choice of Plastic Surgeon Matters: However, this does not mean that anyone can be trusted to perform liposuction. As a surgical procedure, it must be performed by an experienced, educated and trained professional. Dr. Eisemann is a triple-board certified plastic surgeon who has decades of experience with the procedure.
  • Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure: More cartoonish portrayals of liposuction show morbidly obese patients having massive quantities of fat removed and exiting the surgical center fit and thin. In reality, liposuction is best performed on patients who are at or near their ideal body weight. It is a body contouring procedure, not a weight loss procedure.
  • Liposuction can be customized: You have a number of liposuction procedure options, including treatment area, the amount of fat to be removed and procedure variations such as ultrasonic liposuction. This allows Dr. Eisemann to customize your procedure to your specific needs.

Sensationalism is great for headlines and website clicks, but it doesn't actually inform people. We believe in an open, transparent approach to plastic surgery that provides you with all the information you need to make a reasoned decision on your own behalf.

If you're a resident of the Houston, Texas area and you're considering liposuction to remove stubborn deposits of fat, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today for a consultation.

Houston Skin Cancer Prevention and Treatment May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, giving you an ideal opportunity to recommit to wearing sunscreen. Especially in places like Houston, where sun exposure is often prolonged, the use of sunscreen is essential for blocking the harmful UV rays linked to skin cancer. Sunscreen can also help prevent premature aging of the skin and may reduce your risks for uneven skin tone and texture.

We offer many professional skin care products at our Houston cosmetic surgery office. If you are looking for advanced skincare solutions with broad-spectrum UV protection, please give us a call at 855-813-7077 to schedule a consultation and learn more.

Sun Damage and Scar Tissue

Scar tissue is less resistant to UV damage than normal skin. This means that people with exposed scars run the risk of having them permanently darkened by exposure to the sun. Scars are more likely to burn than normal skin and may become severely irritated following long-term exposure as well.

Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann is pleased to offer bioCorneum®, an advanced scar treatment with SPF30 to help protect scars from UV damage. The only FDA-approved scar treatment with Silishield™ patented crosslinking medical grade silicone, bioCorneum works to prevent and minimize hypertrophic scars while decreasing the appearance of existing scars. Non-greasy, clear, and quickly absorbed, this scar treatment offers superior UV protection for 12 to 24 hours, making it perfect for men and women in the Houston area who spend time outdoors.

Protecting your scars – and the rest of your skin – from excessive UV exposure is important for both your physical appearance and your overall health. Dr. Eisemann offers a range of nonsurgical treatments for sun damaged skin, but preventing that damage in the first place is always a better bet.

Dr Eisemann offers facelifts for men - for those who want a younger, more energetic looking face - Houston, Sugar Land Facelift SurgeonAs a person ages, the signs of time can show the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, pollutants and the everyday stresses of life on the skin. Appearing as fine lines, wrinkles, deep creases, sagging at the neck, and the development of jowls at the jaw line, these signs of aging can be visibly reversed with a facelift. While a facelift cannot keep your face from aging, it can restore a more youthful appearance to your face.

The goals of a facelift for males are typically the same as those for females. In both cases, the patient seeks a younger and more energetic appearance.

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a procedure that removes excess fat, while the underlying muscles are lifted and tightened. When these deeper layers are lifted, the skin will follow naturally. The excess skin will then be trimmed away without tension, avoiding the "windswept look," or a pulled-back facial appearance. The typical areas addressed are the cheeks, the lines extending from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth (nasolabial folds), jowls, marionette lines, as well as the folds and fat deposited around the neck area. Incisions for a facelift are carefully made at the hairline, ears and within the natural folds of the face, to have the least impact and appearance on the patient as possible. One of the key differences between a facelift for females and a facelift for males involves the incisions. Men typically wear their hair shorter then women, making scars at the hairline more difficult to hide. The incisions made for a male facelift at the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston will be made as inconspicuously as possible, often along the natural crease where the ear meets the side of the face, around the earlobe and at the slower scalp area under the hair.

It is important that certain techniques are used to ensure the most desirable aesthetic outcome for males. Improper techniques can result in an unnatural appearance, due to sideburns being pulled upward and backward. At the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston, a facelift for men is performed with appropriate techniques to make sure that the most natural, youthful result is achieved without hairline or earlobe distortion.

A facelift is a procedure that can eliminate the most visible signs of aging. While a facelift alone can achieve the desired results for some patients, many of Dr Eisemann's patients Houston chose to combine their facelift with other surgical procedures such as rhinoplasty, forehead lift, eyelid lift, or chin surgery. During the initial surgical consultation for a facelift, Dr. Eisemann will discuss options with each patient and recommend the procedures that will best suit their medical and aesthetic needs.

For patients who are younger or do not have an excess of sagging skin, Dr. Eisemann may recommend a modified or mini-facelift. This mini facelift procedure does not have as dramatic an effect on the face and neck, but it creates less swelling, will leave shorter scars, and heals more quickly than a full facelift. Midface lifting or lower neck alone lifting can be performed selectively with reduced scarring.

Facelift procedures at Dr. Eisemann's fully accredited surgical suite in Houston, Texas may be performed under a local anesthetic with I.V. sedation. Patients can expect to spend the first night after the facelift surgery at home. Patients are generally able to move around on the day after surgery, and find that any post-operative soreness or discomfort can be well managed with oral pain medication. Facelift patients will find that most swelling has subsided about one week after surgery.
