Most of our Houston patients are busy professionals with many time commitments. As such, you're probably worried about when you can get back to the office after undergoing a rhinoplasty procedure.

Recovery from rhinoplasty will vary from patient to patient. However, most patients are usually able to return to work a week or so after undergoing a rhinoplasty.

This will depend on the extent of your recovery and how much the bruising and tenderness that are a normal part of the post-surgical experience have faded. If you have a physically strenuous job your return to work might be slightly delayed.

Dr. Michael Eisemann will discuss a more detailed recovery timeline with you before you undergo your rhinoplasty. After your procedure, you will return to The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center for follow-up appointments. At these appointments, Dr. Eisemann will evaluate your recovery and advise you on how to proceed.

As a triple-board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Eisemann is uniquely experienced with facial plastic surgery. He has decades of experience helping the people of Houston and the surrounding areas with rhinoplasty and other procedures. This experience will help him minimize your recovery time.

When considering breast implants, you'll have a lot of options. All of those options have their own unique set of advantages. Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann is committed to helping his Houston-area patients maximize their advantages.

Anatomic breast implants are popular because they offer a number of significant advantages over traditional saline and silicone implants. These cohesive silicone gel implants:

  • Look more natural
  • Present a decreased risk of capsular contracture
  • Rupture at a lower rate than other implant options
  • Do not bottom out as often as other implant choices

These form stable anatomic breast implants are particularly excellent options for women seeking breast reconstruction.

Of course, all of our breast implant options are proven effective and come with excellent safety records. Houston-area women have learned they can trust Dr. Eisemann to provide them with a breast augmentation experience they will treasure.

If you live in Houston, Texas, or if you're an out-of-town patient and you've heard about the excellent reputation of our center, and you want to learn more about your breast implant options, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today.

One of the most important elements of a sound candidate for plastic surgery in Houston (or anywhere else) is sound mental health. Dr. Michael Eisemann looks out for his patients' long-term best interests, and that means ensuring patients are approaching plastic surgery in a healthy state of mind.

The procedures we offer are proven and come with impressive safety records, but plastic surgery can be physically, mentally and emotionally taxing. A procedure such as a breast augmentation or tummy tuck is significant surgery and will effect a significant change in your body.

A "healthy mental state," in this case, means possessing a clear understanding of the plastic surgery process and what to expect after the procedure, as well as fundamentally sound reasons for considering a procedure.

The recovery process for these procedures, while quite well-understood for the population as a whole, can still be something of an up-and-down process for many individual patients. Dr. Eisemann and his staff will always be available to you during your recovery, but the process will be much easier to handle if you come to it with the proper mindset.

Realistic expectations are also important if you are considering plastic surgery in Houston. While our procedures are effective, it's unrealistic to expect them to make you look exactly like a favorite celebrity. And it's a bad idea to use plastic surgery as a way of avoiding more serious underlying issues.

Dr. Eisemann has helped thousands of patients achieve their aesthetic ideals. He'll be honest with you about the wisdom of plastic surgery, as he has with everyone who has walked through his office door.

If you live in Houston, any of the surrounding Texas communities or anywhere else in the country and you're considering plastic surgery, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today

Losing weight with the guidance and assistance of your physician is an excellent way of increasing your health and your self-confidence. However, triple-board certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann understands that significant weight loss can also be the cause of some unsightly cosmetic problems.

The body often struggles to adjust to a lighter weight, which means you don't always get the full aesthetic benefit of your weight loss. Fortunately, there are cosmetic surgery procedures that can help.

These cosmetic complaints are particularly prevalent with women who have recently given birth and worked off the baby weight. However, these concerns can arise with anyone who has lost a great deal of weight, particularly if they did so in a relatively compressed timeframe.

These procedures include:

  • Liposuction, to remove fat deposits that stubbornly persist after weight loss
  • A tummy tuck, which can tighten previously loose abdominal muscles and remove stretch marks from the lower abdomen
  • Breast lift, which can lift and tighten sagging breasts

Our plastic surgeon will help you decide if plastic surgery is right for your needs and goals. Your safety and health is your priority, and we believe you should be able to enjoy the fruits of all the hard work you put in to lose weight.

If you're a Houston, Texas resident in need of an experienced plastic surgeon, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today. We also help patients from out of town and across the country.

Houston-area patients looking to achieve a youthful, vital facial appearance often come to The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center asking about a facelift. However, Dr. Eisemann, after a thorough examination, might end up recommending a non-surgical option.

A facelift is significant, albeit safe and effective, surgery, and other facial plastic surgery options will require downtime as you recover from the procedure. However, non-surgical facial rejuvenation options can revitalize your skin in a simple, non-invasive fashion.

Non-surgical facial rejuvenation options include:

BOTOX is, of course, the most well-known non-surgical option. And it has helped millions of people safely address the signs of age and wear. However, Dr. Eisemann has a number of ways of helping Houston-area patients who are not good candidates for a facelift or other facial surgery.

These non-surgical alternatives are all proven and effective based on years of testing and active use on the market.

Dr. Eisemann will help you decide on a treatment that is appropriate for your needs and which will help you achieve your goals. He'll also answer all of your questions.

If you live in Houston, any of the surrounding Texas communities or anywhere else in the country and you're considering a facelift or, perhaps, a non-surgical facial rejuvenation option, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today

One of the most unfortunate misconceptions regarding plastic surgery is that it's aimed at women. This is unfair to women, but it also shames men out of undergoing procedures that can help them achieve their aesthetic goals.

In fact, hundreds of thousands of men undergo plastic surgery every year. At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Michael Eisemann has helped many men from the Houston area and throughout the country with a safe, effective procedure.

Plastic surgery procedures that are popular with men include:

The procedure that's right for you will be determined in close consultation with Dr. Eisemann. He will consider your goals, your needs and your state of healthy in deciding upon the procedure to recommend.

If you’re a Houston-area woman considering a breast enlargement, you should understand the details of the procedure. At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Michael Eisemann is committed to making sure all of your concerns are addressed and questions answered.

Knowing what to expect from the procedure will help you relax when you visit us for your breast enlargement. The procedure generally works like this:

  • Dr. Eisemann will make an incision in a location that you and he choose before the procedure
  • We form a “pocket” that will contain your breast implants; this pocket can be placed either over or under the muscle wall
  • Our plastic surgeon places the implants in the pocket
  • Your incisions are closed and the procedure is completed

And that’s it. The breast enlargement is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures in the world. Dr. Eisemann has helped hundreds of women in the Houston-area achieve larger, fuller, more attractive breasts, and he can do the same for you.

Revision rhinoplasty is one of Dr. Michael Eisemann’s specialties. He has helped countless patients from Houston and around the world address problems leftover from a previous nasal surgery.

Rhinoplasty is a common procedure, but it’s also a sensitive and complicated one. Problems can arise for a number of reasons, and many of those have nothing to do with surgical error. Whatever the specific cause of your complaints, Dr. Eisemann can help.

Some common post-rhinoplasty problems include:

  • Difficulty breathing through the nose
  • A failure to adequately address or remove all abnormalities
  • Realization that your new nose does not work holistically with your facial structure

Revision rhinoplasty is a particularly difficult procedure. Operating on a nose that has already undergone a rhinoplasty requires a plastic surgeon with experience and a proven skill set.

Dr. Eisemann possesses these traits. He’s one of the Houston area’s premier providers of revision rhinoplasty. He and his staff can help if you’re dissatisfied with the results of a previous nasal procedure.

If you live in Houston, any of the surrounding Texas communities or anywhere else in the country and you want to learn more about your revision rhinoplasty options, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today for a consultation.
