Do NOT use this "so-called" surgeon for Rhinoplasty, June 19, 2012, 9:50 am
Reviewer: victim123

After extended discussions with Dr. Michael L. Eisemann, a Plastic Surgeon, I agreed to have him perform a Revision Rhinoplasty with Ear Cartilage Graft in order to correct a concave deviation in the columella of my nose.

During the pre-surgical consultation, Dr. Eisemann fully & emphatically agreed to my specific, articulate & special instructions to only use the ear cartilage graft for a supporting structure & NOT to use a septal cartilage graft – as I was concerned for the aesthetic consequences associated with any structural changes to my nose by altering the septal cartilage as well as any potentially damage due to the collapse of the delicate septal cartilage framework. Additionally, the physician agreed to my clear & concise limitations that he make absolutely no further alteration to my nose.
To my grave detriment h0wever, Dr. Eisemann egregiously decided to conduct an entirely different surgery program than he promised: a SeptoRhinoplasty with Septal Cartilage Graft – thereby altering the septum of my nose along with its overall 3 dimensional shape & structure. Furthermore, on his own whim he decided to completely alter the shape to the tip of my nose. All of this was expressly against my specific wishes & his previous agreement prior to surgery.

As a direct result of his unauthorized surgery, my face has sustained a shocking transformation wholly of bad design. Dr. Eisemann was reckless in his disregard to the promised procedure & my trust in his expertise.

Dr Eisemann knew or should have known the severe emotional distress & suffering that would ensue following alterations to my nose that we specifically agreed he would not undertake. A nose is a nose because of its shape! It is the underlying cartilage that gives it shape; and, recreates a subtle contour that defines the normalcy of each nasal subunit. When I look into the mirror, I feel fright, grief, shame, humiliation, embarrassment, anger, apprehension and worry. I am unable to enjoy social events the way I used to before the surgery; and, feel withdrawn now from family & friends. In summary, I feel depressed, tired & lack motivation. Additionally, I am now unemployed, feel an inability to sustain myself financially and I fully believe my diminished self concept has created an impairment of my earning capacity.

When I asked Dr. Eisemann why he so completely defied performing the procedure we had agreed upon, his answer was,

“....I didn't want to create another surgery site…..”

In other words, he didn’t want to complicate the surgery by having two areas to work on.

Obviously his feeble explanation merely served to add insult to physical injury. If Dr. Eisemann was fearful of the two-step procedure, why did he make the reassuring promise pre-surgery to use ear cartilage rather than septal cartilage?

I have received a 2nd consult by another physician who demonstrated to me that in the current Plastic Surgery Texts there is absolutely no specific contraindication nor complication associated with performing the Revision Rhinoplasty with Ear Cartilage Graft as he had originally promised. Ironically, the only contraindication was in Dr. Eisemann using the septal cartilage rather than the ear cartilage as he originally promised!

By using the septal cartilage rather than the ear cartilage, Dr. Eisemann changed the overall 3 dimensional support, shape & appearance of my nose and risked damage to the highly vascularized septal cartilage lining.

In other words, Dr. Eisemann outrageous claim about scrapping the ear cartilage over the septal cartilage was a lie; and, his promises & reassurances to me specifically about the surgical procedures were intentionally deceptive!

I would have never elected the surgery had it not been for Dr. Eisemann repeated misrepresentations & knowing falsehoods which were designed for the sole purpose of stringing me along until I was under his knife & in a position of vulnerability!

TERRIBLE!!!!, June 21, 2010, 12:12 pm
Reviewer: patient123

I recently had a rhinoplasty operation from Dr. Michael Eisemann. I wanted to get this procedure done from a top rater doctor in Houston. Eisemann is triple board certified and a certified ENT. I thought his experience would best suite my procedure. He was so nice during the consultation. I trusted that he would do a great job. The day of my surgery, everything changed. The procedure was in his suite, not in the actual hospital. He administered the anesthesia himself. I was awake during the entire procedure because I was not given enough anesthesia. This was completely traumatizing. He knew I was awake because I repeatedly told him I was in pain during the surgery. Afterwards, he told my parents I was making it up and just dreamed it. They talked to a real anesthesiologist and he confirmed that I was not given enough. I was in complete pain for about 2 weeks. I told him that I needed more medicine or soemthing to help me get through it, but he refused. He was cold and had no bed side manner. It's been a month since my surgery and I still can't even breath. This procedure was suppose to help my breathing since I had a deviated septum. Clearly, it hasn't helped. Also, there is a bump on the side of my nose that was not there before. When I asked him about it, he told me it's my bone and that it should smooth out over time. So I have a rough, jagged edge bone sticking out on the side of my nose and the doctor doesn't seem to care. Please do everything you can to make sure this doctor doesn't hurt another patient. I will never recommend him and I will do everything in my power to make sure this doesn't happen to someone else!

WORST DOCTOR IN HOUSTON, May 20, 2010, 1:42 pm
Reviewer: Katri_Lukina

I had rhinoplasty done by him in 2009. Disaster, to say the least. He shaved off too much and caused my nasal cavity to cave in. I understand the risks involved with the surgery-but this is outrageous. I have had a few procedures done by other doctors (breasts, tummy, botox) but his is beyond bad. AVOID AVOID AVOID. There is a reason his reviews are so low-do more research on him if you are thinking of going with him-you will find people on the internet and in real life willing to tell you to avoid him at all costs.

HORRIBLE DOCTOR - EISEMANN, March 19, 2009, 9:08 am
Reviewer: crod7647

I research the doctor online and believed the reviews I found (unfortunately they were only the good ones). Dr Eisemann is the absolute worse doctor I have ever had. I had any and all problems you could imagine. The scarring is horrific! He has absolutely no bed side manner. I developed an infection and had to go to my GP because Dr Eisemann kept stating it was fine! I spent a week in the hospital and so him all of 30 seconds each morning on his way to the office. DO NOT USE THIS DOCTOR! He charges more than he initially tells you. The hospital charges are extra and not included as they state. Different size breasts, terrible scarring, pain, numbness, etc. are the results. You spend 3 hours in the waiting room to see him for 2 minutes for him to say everything is fine when it obviously isn't. I don't know how these magazines rate him as one of Houston's best!
