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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"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.
