Liposuction can be used to remove belly fat along with fat from nearly any other area of the body. Call Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann at (855) 813-7077 to learn moreBelly fat is among the most tenacious and difficult to remove fat on the body. Diet and exercise may reduce the bulk somewhat, but these methods alone often fail to produce fully desirable results. If you have belly fat that seems resistant to traditional methods of removal, Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann can help. Give us a call at (855) 813-7077 to schedule your initial consultation and learn more.

Liposuction can be used to remove fat from any area of the body. For belly fat, liposuction is highly effective, and the advanced techniques utilized by our Houston plastic surgeon allow for optimal toning of this highly visible area of the body. However, if excess skin is present in addition to belly fat, liposuction may not be the most effective option. During your initial consultation Dr. Eisemann will assess your entire midsection and recommend the body contouring procedure most suitable for your specific needs.

Excess Skin and Belly Fat

When both excess skin and belly fat are present, tummy tuck surgery is typically the better bet. With abdominoplasty, Dr. Eisemann can eliminate excess skin, remove stubborn belly fat, and even slim the hips and waist. Tummy tuck surgery also allows for a tightening of abdominal muscles – reducing risks of hernia and severe lower back pain that can accompany a separated and weak core.

Belly fat responds well to liposuction and tummy tuck surgery, both of which offer permanent results. During your initial visit to our Houston plastic surgery office we can talk more about this and other benefits offered by body contouring to help you decide on the best procedure for your needs.

To learn if surgical or nonsurgical facial rejuvenation is your best option, call Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann at (855) 813-7077 todayWhen signs of aging begin to detract from your feelings of self-confidence or produce a look that is unappealing to you, there are a number of options available to rejuvenate your appearance. Choosing which is right for your specific needs is something best done with the assistance of board-certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann. Please call us today at (855) 813-7077 to speak with a patient coordinator, schedule your consultation, and learn more about your options.

Surgical Facial Rejuvenation

Dr. Eisemann offers a range of surgical facial rejuvenation procedures including:

  • Facelift to address skin laxity in the lower face and neck, contour the jaw line, and restore a tighter and more youthful appearance
  • Eyelid surgery to remove dark circles and puffy skin from below the eyes, lift sagging eyelids, and smooth crow’s feet
  • Brow lift to smooth furrows and creases across the forehead and in between the eyes, and to lift sagging eyebrows

These procedures can be used alone or in combination to produce your ideal look. During your initial consultation at our Houston plastic surgery office, those options best for your needs will be discussed in detail.

Nonsurgical Facial Rejuvenation

If surgical facial rejuvenation is not right for you, many nonsurgical options can be used to produce a softer, fuller, and more youthful appearance. Nonsurgical facial rejuvenation options offered by Dr. Eisemann include:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic to address furrows in between the eye brows, crow’s feet, and wrinkles around the lips
  • Dermal fillers such as Restylane® and Juvéderm® to fill hollowed and sunken cheeks, smooth deep wrinkles, and augment the lips

Dermal fillers are sometimes used in combination for a “liquid facelift,” which can address many of the same signs of aging as its surgical namesake. However, while less invasive, dermal fillers cannot remove fat deposits or lift sagging jowls, and must be administered at regular intervals – around 12 to 18 months – for continued results. Dr. Eisemann will discuss both the benefits and limitations of facial fillers during your visit to our Houston office to help ensure you are making the best decision for your needs.

To schedule your initial consultation, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today. Located in Houston, we serve patients living in The Woodlands, Katy, Sugar Land, and all surrounding areas.

Recovery time for balloon sinuplasty is around 48 hours. To learn more, call board-certified Houston ENT surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann at (855) 813-7077 todayBalloon sinuplasty is a treatment for chronic sinusitis that does not involve incisions or other surgical steps, making it less invasive than traditional sinus infection surgery. However, even though balloon sinuplasty is less invasive than some other forms of chronic sinus infection treatment, there is still some recovery involved with the procedure. During your balloon sinus surgery consultation with board-certified Houston ENT Dr. Michael Eisemann, a recovery timeline based on your specific anatomy can be established.

Full recovery from balloon sinuplasty typically takes around 48 hours. Some bruising and swelling may be present during this time, but should subside on its own. Work and other activities can be resumed within one to two days, but sinus drainage may still be present and should be accounted for when making plans. Discomfort during balloon sinuplasty recovery is typically minor and easily dealt with through over-the-counter pain medications.

Once recovery from your balloon sinuplasty is complete, your sinuses should be completely clear, allowing for greater ease of breathing. Results from balloon sinus surgery can be permanent, though this will be dependent on many factors unique to your anatomy. Our triple board-certified Houston ear, nose, and throat doctor will discuss this in greater detail during your initial chronic sinus infection treatment consultation.

If you are interested in learning more about balloon sinus surgery in Houston, Katy, Sugar Land, The Woodlands, or surrounding areas of Texas, please contact Dr. Michael Eisemann online or by calling (855) 813-7077 today.

To learn about your breast implant options, call Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann at (855) 813-7077 and schedule a consultation today.The FDA has recently approved Allergan’s Natrelle Inspira Cohesive, a new cohesive gel breast implant that may more closely resemble breast tissue, even when placed above the muscles in the chest. Similar to gummy bear breast implants, this new option uses advanced silicone filling to produce a more natural look and feel. What makes these breast implants different is the amount of filling used.

Natrelle Inspira Cohesive breast implants are designed to hold a greater amount of filling than other implant options. The additional silicone gel allows for a firmer, fuller, and more lifted breast appearance without requiring a larger implant size. And just like the form stable breast implants these expand on, the cohesive gel helps prevent aesthetic imperfections and may even extend your breast augmentation results.

Which Breast Implant is Right for Me?

There are a number of breast implant options, each better suited to create specific results. During your initial consultation with Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann, all of these options will be discussed in detail, providing you with the information you need to make an informed decision about your breast enlargement procedure.

While newer breast implants offer some attractive advantages, they are still not the best fit for every woman seeking breast augmentation in Texas. This is just one reason it is best to work with an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Eisemann who will carefully assess your frame, listen to your desires, and customize your breast enlargement options to meet your needs.

If you are considering breast augmentation in Houston, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today. Located in Houston, our plastic surgeon serves Katy, The Woodlands, Sugar Land, and all surrounding areas of Texas.

Please call (855) 813-7077 to schedule a consultation with Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann and learn how best to prepare for your procedure Nicotine is a vascular constrictor. This means that it works to constrict veins and arteries, slowing blood flow and, along with it, the body’s natural healing response. Smokers typically experience less rewarding plastic surgery results due to this longer recovery period, which often produces thick and visible scars. Smoking also increases risks for infection and other postoperative complications, making it something board-certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann will recommend you quit at least six weeks prior to your procedure. But is “quitting” with e-cigarettes a good option?

A new study published in the December issue of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, the official online medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, finds that e-cigarettes are just as bad for surgical recovery as traditional tobacco. This is because it is nicotine, not any of the thousands of other chemicals in cigarette smoke, which slows healing. If you are a smoker who is looking into plastic surgery in Houston, you will need to eliminate nicotine from your body in the weeks leading up to your procedure. Patches, gums, e-cigarettes, and other nicotine replacement options do not help reduce risks of complication and must be given up for optimal results.

As we enter 2017, committing to your health can include quitting smoking as well as looking into body contouring procedures that can help provide greater ease of movement and a tighter, more toned physique. Dr. Eisemann and our helpful staff welcome an opportunity to meet with you and discuss your goals, and to provide information on how we can help you reach them.

Gynecomastia is a condition in which excessive tissue in the chest produces a more feminine appearance. Impacting men of all ages, this condition may be related to weight fluctuations, but can also be caused by genetics, certain medications, and hormone imbalances. Regardless of its cause, gynecomastia can feel emasculating and detract significantly from the appearance of the upper body. Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann can address this issue – even when glandular – to restore a firm, attractive, and masculine look through male breast reduction.

Is Male Breast Reduction a Good Fit for Me | Houston, TXTo be a good candidate for male breast reduction you should be:

  • In good health
  • Close to your ideal weight
  • Ready to undergo a surgical procedure
  • Able to take time off for a short recovery period
  • Prepared to take steps to maintain your results

Male breast reduction is most typically performed with liposuction. Once fatty tissue has been removed through male liposuction, it won’t come back. However, unless dietary and lifestyle choices are made to maintain results, new fat will accumulate. If you need guidance or assistance in determining the types of activities and food choices that can help you maintain your male breast reduction results, we can give suggestions during your time in our care.

If you are looking to muscularly enhance your chest following male breast reduction, you may also wish to consider talking to our board-certified Houston plastic surgeon about pectoral implants. These can produce a chiseled and toned appearance without the physical strain and potential risks of weight training. Dr. Eisemann would be happy to discuss this in greater detail if it is something you are interested in during your initial consultation.

To schedule your Houston male breast reduction consultation, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today. We welcome patients from Katy, The Woodlands, and all surrounding areas of Texas.

Breast lift surgery addresses loose skin and sagging tissue in the bust. During breast lift surgery, Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann gently lifts underlying tissue, removes excess and unnecessary skin, and repositions the nipple for a perkier, symmetrical, and more appealing look. However, some loss of volume, which can impact ideal contours, might be unavoidable during the procedure. To avoid contour imperfections, Dr. Eisemann may suggest placing breast implants during your breast lift.
