Wrinkles are the result of muscle contractions. Or, to be more precise, they're the results of billions of muscle contractions that occur over the course of your entire life. Any individual contraction is meaningless, but as we age these contractions accumulate and result in wrinkles.

Those contractions are caused by signals sent from your brain and conveyed by nerves to the muscles. Your face is criss-crossed with nerves and muscles, and it's vulnerable to the signs of age and wear.

This is where BOTOX® Cosmetic comes in. It's a weakened, medically engineered version of the botulinum toxin, and it works by blocking your nerves from receiving contraction signals from the brain. This prevents your nerves from telling your muscles to contract. Before long, your muscles will relax, smoothing out your skin and eliminating wrinkles and creases.

The end result is a smoother, tighter, more youthful looking face without the appearance of fatigue and age.

BOTOX®'s results are temporary, and after a few months your facial muscles will once begin to contract, producing more wrinkles. You can return to our office for another treatment, though at a certain point the injections will begin losing effectiveness.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area and you have questions about how BOTOX® can work for you, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today at (855) 813-7077 or contact us online for a consultation.

You might not think about your eyelids when considering how to achieve significant facial rejuvenation. However, the eyes are exceptionally important for your overall aesthetic. Drooping eyelids can make you appear fatigued and aged. Fortunately, plastic surgery, specifically the blepharoplasty procedure, can help Houston-area patients like you.

Blepharoplasty is more commonly known as “eyelid surgery” because that's its essential goal- rejuvenating your eyelids in an attempt to rejuvenate your overall facial appearance.

As we age, our eyelids begin to droop and sag, while the skin grows puffy. As our attention is automatically drawn to the eyes during conversation, this presents a significant cosmetic issue for those who want their appearance to reflect their vitality and energy.

A blepharoplasty can achieve that goal by removing excess skin and fat in either the upper or lower eyelids. The procedure itself is quite simple and safe, and you can have complete confidence in the skill of our triple board-certified plastic surgeon.

You don't have to appear fatigued. Plastic surgery provides a solution, and Dr. Eisemann has proven himself over decades of experience.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area and you're considering plastic surgery, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today at (855) 813-7077 or contact us online for a consultation.

At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery, we always emphasize that the placement of breast implants is quite safe. The statistics on this are quite clear. Still, we believe strongly in clear communication with our Houston-area patients, and that includes an open discussion of potential complications.

One of the more common complications of a breast augmentation is capsular contracture.

Your body has a very active and finely tuned system for responding to the introduction of foreign materials. Scar tissue will naturally form around the breast pocket after an implants has been placed- this is normal and natural. However, in some instances the tissue will dramatically tighten and squeeze the implant.

This is capsular contracture. It's unpleasant and uncomfortable, and though relatively rare, it's something to be aware of when you're considering breast augmentation. Should capsular contracture occur, the only treatment is a surgical procedure to correct the issue.

Plastic surgeons still are not sure exactly what causes capsular contracture. However, studies have found that there are some ways to reduce the probability that it will occur. One proven method is to employ the sub-muscular implant placement option.

Dr. Michael Eisemann will discuss your options and address any concerns you might have regarding capsular contracture.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area, or if you're an out-of-town patient looking for a safe breast augmentation experience, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today at (855) 813-7077 or contact us online for a consultation.

At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we are committed to ensuring that you only undergo the procedures that are right for you. A tummy tuck is no exception- it's serious, extensive surgery that you should only undergo if you are a sound candidate.

Still, it's also an excellent way of achieving a dramatic change in the appearance of your mid-section. So the appeal of the tummy tuck is obvious, especially when it's performed by our triple board-certified plastic surgeon.

A tummy tuck can achieve quite a bit, but it's main purpose is to strengthen loose abdominal muscles. Muscles are often loosened as a result of some significant trauma or dramatic change- pregnancy, for example, or significant weight loss.

You should only undergo a tummy tuck if you're in sound overall health and suffer from no active infections. You should be prepared for a fairly extensive recovery process and come into the procedure with reasonable expectations.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area and you want to learn more about the tummy tuck procedure, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center at (855) 813-7077 or contact us online for a consultation.

The tummy tuck is an exceptionally popular procedure in the Houston area. It's quite safe and commonly performed, and you know you can trust in Dr. Eisemann's decades of experience as a board-certified plastic surgeon.

It's important to understand the nature of any procedure you're considering so that you can come in with reasonable expectations. We are always open and honest with our patients and value clear communication.

A tummy tuck can:

  • Remove flabby skin
  • Excise excess fat
  • Tighten loose abdominal muscles
  • Removes stretch marks

The tummy tuck is a particularly valuable procedure for women who have recently undergone pregnancy and child birth, but it is quite useful for anyone looking to achieve a dramatic change in the appearance and tightness of their midsection.

We'll thoroughly examine your needs to determine if a tummy tuck is appropriate for you. And Dr. Eisemann will answer all of your questions before moving forward with any procedure.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area, or if you live out of state and you're looking for a safe plastic surgery experience, and you're considering a tummy tuck, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center at (855) 813-7077 or contact us online for a consultation.

You're a savvy consumer, and you always do your research before making a major purchase. Plastic surgery is no different. In the course of your research into Houston-area plastic surgeons, you've surely found that the cosmetic surgery procedure you're considering is quite safe and commonly performed.

The statistics are clear: plastic surgery is never now than it has ever been. As such, it's easy to talk yourself into the proposition that the plastic surgeon himself isn't that important. After all, if these procedures are really so common, why does experience matter?

In reality, your choice of plastic surgeon matters a great deal. The procedures we offer are commonly performed and quite safe, yes, but that doesn't mean they're easy or simple. These are still significant surgical procedures, and those all carry risks.

The reason plastic surgery is safer than ever is because plastic surgeons are better than ever. There's a higher standard of professionalism expected from a plastic surgeon than ever before. Procedures are safe because they're performed by specially trained doctors who can make them safe.

Dr. Michael Eisemann is a perfect example of this. A board-certified plastic surgeon with decades of experience, Dr. Eisemann is known throughout the country for his skill and ability. He understands the intricacies of every major procedure and knows how to keep you safe throughout your time in our care.

If you live in or around Houston, Texas and you're looking for a plastic surgeon you can trust,  please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center at (855) 813-7077 or contact us online for a consultation. We also welcome out-of-town patients.

"Nose job" is simply a colloquial way of referring to rhinoplasty, which is an exceptionally sensitive procedure that can re-size and re-shape your nose and its underlying structure in a way that's more aesthetically pleasing. It's one of the more popular procedures in our Houston office.

Plastic surgeons tend to cringe at the term "nose job," as it makes a difficult procedure sound simple and more than a little unpleasant. We refer to it as a rhinoplasty in our office.

Still, we understand that these terms get in the popular bloodstream and spread quickly, and however you refer to the rhinoplasty procedure, the reality is that it is an excellent way of addressing aesthetic concerns related to the size and shape of your nose.

Dr. Michael Eisemann has decades of experience crafting an exquisite facial appearance for his patients. And a visually pleasing nose is undeniably a crucial aspect of that appearance. We'll be happy to discuss your options and help you determine if rhinoplasty is right for you.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area, or if you're an out-of-town patient who has heard of our remarkable track record, and you want to learn more about the truth behind the "nose job," please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center at (855) 813-7077 or contact us online for a consultation.

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.

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.
