A multi-treatment procedure popular with moms and women of all kinds, the Mommy Makeover is a patient-tailored, head-to-toe service that traditionally includes breast surgery (either lifting, fat grafting, reduction, or augmentation), abdominoplasty (a Full or Mini Tummy Tuck in the torso area), and vaginal rejuvenation (typically involving skin removal and internal tightening). A longtime specialty of Dr. Jason Emer, a renowned body sculpting and contouring specialist, the Mommy Makeover is an ideal procedure or women looking either for dramatic improvements in their shape and size or a complete transformation with contouring, sculpting and enhanced definition.
Following a patient consultation and analysis, Dr. Emer and his team of trusted plastic surgeons will craft a detailed surgical plan that is customized to the patient’s unique needs. Dr. Emer first performs hi-definition liposuction, body sculpting, and contouring procedures in order to loosen the skin and slim the body contour, allowing for skin removal and optimal body shaping in a single procedure. Dr. Emer then tightens the skin with internal heating devices; employs VASER ultrasound technology to heat beneath the skin, disrupt the fat, and achieve high-definition sculpting; and uses fat grafting to provide volume and lift in the breast area, sculpt the arms, reshape the buttocks, and/or rejuvenate the vagina. Cellulite is also treated with Cellfina, fat grafting, or injectables such as Sculptra or Bellafill.
Following the procedure, equipped with a transformed figure and newfound confidence, Dr. Emer’s patients follow a monthly radiofrequency skin tightening treatment plan and customized skin care protocol to maintain their youthful, rejuvenated, and sculpted appearance.
Abdominoplasty (commonly known as a Tummy Tuck) is a surgical option that offers dramatic improvements for patients seeking a smoother, tighter, and firmer stomach with a natural-looking, contoured appearance. A Full Tummy Tuck involves a two-layer approach that repairs both the muscles and the skin. Dr. Emer and his surgical team remove the excess skin and fat in the torso area and tighten the abdominal muscle—which, for female patients, may or may not be damaged as a result of pregnancy (a condition referred to as diastasis recti, or abdominal separation). As with every procedure, Dr. Emer’s team performs every Tummy Tuck with precision and acute attention to detail, always mindful of the end result.
For patients with a small amount of loose skin, a quicker and less invasive Mini Tummy Tuck can tighten the lower abdomen, provide improved shape, and remove loose skin with less dissection than a full abdominoplasty. Dr. Emer often pairs hi-definition liposuction and body contouring—which vastly improves size, shape and definition—with a Mini Tuck to tighten the abdominal area.
Full Body Lift
A Belt Lipectomy or Full Body Lift may resemble a more extensive Tummy Tuck, particularly since the primary goals are to remove excess fat, tissue, and loose skin and fat. However, while the Tummy Tuck is performed only on the front of the body, a Full Body Lift is a circumferential procedure, involving an incision around the entire torso to remove fat and tighten skin around the waistline. Dr. Emer and his surgical team often recommend this procedure to patients who have seen dramatic weight loss, and therefore carry significant loose skin around the beltline, as well as those who have fluctuated with weight over time.
Whenever a foreign object is introduced to the body—especially in the case of muscular implants, which require meticulous planning and patient-specific customization—a skilled and experienced medical professional is critical to ensuring a safe procedure with outstanding results. Dr. Emer and his surgical team have ample experience with pectoral, shoulder, bicep, tricep, buttock, hip and calf implants and understand that the procedure varies slightly depending on the muscle: selecting the ideal shape of the implant, selecting the proper size of implant, and choosing the perfect incision points to reduce scarring. Additionally, Dr. Emer and his skilled plastic surgeons employ certain proprietary techniques to reduce trauma in surgery, minimize patient recovery time, and limit the risk of complications.

To improve your muscular definition and shape we have numerous options such as surgical high definition contouring with fat grafting, muscular implants, and fillers. 💁🏻♂️If you have problem areas that won’t grow or want increases in size and shape fillers can sometimes be used to give you that extra boost. 🙌🏻 My patient here works out 💪🏻 daily and can’t get the peak of his muscle he has been lifting for. @bellafill is injected to give him a boost in collagen and immediate size in this area. 💉 Long term his muscle density will increase and his workouts will go to a whole new level. 🚀
Arm Lift & Tightening
An Arm Lift is a surgical procedure that simultaneously reduces sagging skin on the arms, removes fat pockets, tightens and smooths the supportive tissue, and reshapes and contours the upper arm. In the hands of Dr. Jason Emer, a pioneer in innovative, combination treatments, as well as his skilled plastic surgeons, surgical intervention (such as brachioplasty) is complemented by nonsurgical arm sculpting techniques, including hi-definition liposuction; internal “shrink wrap” skin tightening, which uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the undersurface of the skin; external RF skin tightening devices; non-invasive Coolsculpting; and arm threading. In combination, these procedures can lift and tighten the arms, resulting in contoured, athletic arms, a smaller incision, and reduced downtime.
Thigh Lift & Tightening
For patients with significant skin sagging in the inner or outer thigh, a Thighplasty (or Thigh Lift) can provide surgical skin removal and lifting, thereby reducing any skin laxity. Dr. Emer and his trusted plastic surgeons do everything possible to avoid long, unsightly incisions with a multi-modality approach to Thigh Lifts. In many cases, Dr. Emer begins with Hi-Definition Liposuction to remove excess fat, reduce the volume of the thighs, and create a more sculpted, contoured and balanced shape. Following the fat removal procedure, Dr. Emer employs internal radiofrequency (RF) heating to “shrink wrap” the skin and improve the overall texture of the treated area. At this point, one of Dr. Emer’s skilled surgeons intervenes to surgically remove any loose skin. In some instances, only a small, hidden incision, tucked in the crease of the groin and buttock roll, is necessary to tighten and lift the middle thigh and buttock crease. Using this spiral lift technique, Dr. Emer’s team provides long-term lifting, visible skin tightening, and wrinkle and cellulite reduction in a single treatment. In the case of more significant sagging, a longer incision down the inner thigh or around the upper thigh may be required; however, meticulous suturing, as well as a combination of fat removal and skin tightening procedures, can give the leg a newfound contour while limiting scarring.
To ensure continued improvement after surgery, Thigh Lift patients typically follow a custom-tailored annual maintenance plan, including external, nonsurgical RF and ultrasound skin tightening treatments as well as regular Sculptra injections to maintain excellent collagen production.
Brazilian Butt Lift & Buttock Augmentation
In the hands of Dr. Jason Emer, a renowned expert in combination body contouring procedures, a Brazilian Butt Lift provides numerous enhancements to the buttock area, including additional volume, improved tone, improved cellulite, and added lift. The procedure typically involves Hi-Definition Liposculpture and water-assisted fat harvesting, a technique in which fat is removed from other areas of your body, purified through the Puregraft filtration system, and enriched with your own growth factors and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) before it is transferred to the buttock tissues, allowing for the most longevity and viability.
For more significant improvements in size, shape and contour of the buttocks, Dr. Emer and hs expert plastic surgeons will often perform a composite procedure: buttock implants complemented with natural fat grafting. A long-term solution tailored specifically to your anatomy and aesthetic goals, implants can dramatically improve symmetry, projection, roundness and volume of the buttocks. Following the procedure, fat grafting is injected into the desired areas for additional lifting and shaping, precision contouring, and cellulite improvement. Using internal and/or external radiofrequency energy devices, Dr. Emer can promote skin tightening, buttock lifting and improvement in the thighs; Sculptra injections are also employed following the procedure to stimulate collagen production, improve shape, and reduce cellulite.
A longtime expert in the art of body sculpting and contouring, Dr. Emer advises all of his patients against permanent silicone injections, which come with long-term consequences and potentially dangerous side effects.
A unique specialty of body sculpting and body contouring specialist Dr. Jason Emer, Hi-Definition Liposuction is a patient-tailored combination of treatments and procedures to deliver a complete body transformation with unimaginable, life-altering results. Dr. Emer’s skilled plastic surgeons are closely involved in each Hi-Definition Liposuction procedure to perform excess skin removal—a specialized technique that resolves loose or hanging skin and tightens the skin in the abdomen, arm, thigh, buttocks, and back. Due to the comprehensive nature of the procedure, Dr. Emer and his team can complement Hi-Definition Liposuction with any number of body contouring treatments and surgical procedures to sculpt a tighter, more defined figure.

Surgical Body Contouring & Revision Procedures
As opposed to non-surgical body contouring—one of Dr. Emer’s unique specialties—surgical body contouring typically involves a more advanced or complex procedure, either due to major weight loss, significant skin laxity, botched procedures or irregularities. Assisted by his skilled team of plastic surgeons, Dr. Emer begins the procedure with water-assisted and ultrasound-assisted Hi-Definition Liposuction to remove and harvest excess fat while beginning to sculpt, shape and contour the body’s new, smaller shape. Based on each patient’s assessment and individual needs, surgical body contouring may or may not include a face or neck lift, breast lift or augmentation, tummy tuck, lower body lift, thigh lift, arm lift, and/or skin removal. Dr. Emer often complements these surgical procedures with minimally and non-invasive energy-based treatments to improve the results achieved in surgery.
Surgical body contouring is a long-term process with a critical, custom-tailored treatment plan to obtain a new and improved, contoured, and harmonious appearance.
Women of all ages have sought Dr. Emer’s aesthetic expertise and his renowned rejuvenation techniques to improve the look and feel of their vagina. Dr. Emer’s unique approach to “designer vagina therapy” is a customized combination of radiofrequency, laser, fillers, and injectable bio-cellular healing treatments, such as growth factors and stem cells, that address tightness, dryness, appearance, sexual drive, stimulation—everything that stands between you and an unconditional love for your body.
For women experiencing loose vaginal tissues or muscles—often the result of childbirth, genetics, aging, or trauma to the area—Vaginoplasty (vaginal tissue tightening) can tone and tighten the muscles, restore sensitivity, and increase pleasure during intercourse. Likewise, Labiaplasty (reducing the size and shape of the labia minora) can not only provide an aesthetic “face lift” to the vagina but can also address labial enlargement, unevenness, and pain or discomfort. In these instances, Dr. Emer and his esteemed plastic surgeons will create a multifaceted approach, involving both surgical and nonsurgical treatments, to provide volumization, reduction, labial contouring, tightening, and/or improvements in sensitivity.
Women seek breast augmentation for a number of reasons: underdeveloped breasts, reduced volume or shape changes following pregnancy, or a desire to improve their aesthetic appearance and boost their confidence. A pioneer in both surgical and nonsurgical body contouring procedures, Dr. Jason Emer and his expert plastic surgeons consult with each patient one-on-one to fully understand her objectives and concerns, provide a comprehensive assessment with numerous treatment options, and map out a strategic plan to achieve the desired long-term goals.
For women seeking some additional volume without surgical intervention, fat grafting is a safe, natural, and minimally invasive approach offering low-maintenance, long-term improvement in size and contour. After harvesting fat from your body, Dr. Emer purifies and enriches the fat with your own natural growth factors and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and then injects the fat in the desired areas to improve volume and shape.
For women seeking more significant improvements—in size, shape, symmetry, and fullness—a combination of traditional breast implants and fat grafting provides the advantages of both procedures. Implants, which are more predictable in volume than fat grafting, are 100% customizable depending on your needs, aesthetic goals and unique anatomy; by injecting fat over the implants, Dr. Emer and his team can produce a softer, smoother look with improved soft-tissue coverage.
Lifting, reshaping, and recontouring the breasts is an all-too-common procedure for women who have experienced sagging, stretching, or deflating in their breasts and have developed a lack of confidence due to the effects of aging, gravity, genetics, and pregnancy/breastfeeding. Dr. Jason Emer and his expert plastic surgeons are highly experienced with mastopexy (Breast Lift) procedures, which can restore youthful shape to the breasts by removing excess skin and simultaneously tightening the surrounding tissue. The type of incision required (circumareolar, “lollipop” or “anchor”) and the lifespan of the lift depends on each patient’s condition, breast tissue, genetics, weight and hormonal fluctuations, and desired results. Each procedure is carefully strategized and customized to address the physical, emotional and lifestyle needs of our patients.
Breast lift surgeries are often performed in conjunction with complementary cosmetic procedures, such as a Tummy Tuck, which reduces sagging and laxity in the abdomen; a natural breast augmentation, which uses fat grafting to provide minimal additional volume; breast implant augmentation, for women seeking more significant improvement in volume and shape; and tissue removal, which can improve asymmetrical breasts and assist with minor breast reductions. Breast lift patients may also undergo an areola reduction or recentering, which, like the aforementioned techniques, can be performed without detaching the nipple.
For patients who wish to avoid surgical intervention and minimize recovery time, non-surgical body contouring specialist Dr. Jason Emer can perform non-surgical breast lifts using both radiofrequency (RF) and ultrasound energy devices—such as the BTL Exilis Ultra, Venus Legacy, InMode Forma/Contoura, and Ultherapy—to tighten the skin in the desired area, stimulate collagen production, and produce a long-term lift.
As women age, they get overly saggy breasts that often make them feel self-conscious and can even cause back pain. You need to find an expert surgeon to help lift and shape the breast so it is proportionate to your individual body size. Our surgeon Dr. Pryor helped this woman get an amazing lift and new shape after a breast reduction and nipple-areola reconstruction. Breast reduction surgery doesn't change your nipple sensitivity or lactational abilities, as so many women are concerned will happen after breast surgery. Now her new breast size has less pull on her back, reducing her constant back pain and gives her a more youthful, perky, natural look.

As women age, one common cause of both diminished confidence and constant pain and discomfort is large, sagging breasts. A reduction mammoplasty (or breast reduction) is a surgical procedure that removes excess breast fat, tissue and skin, thereby reducing the weight in the breast area and diminishing any back, neck and shoulder pain.
This common but incredibly delicate procedure that must be performed by an experienced, certified plastic surgeon who will not only reduce the breast size but also lift, shape, tighten, and improve the overall appearance of the breasts. Breast reduction surgery typically has no long-term impact on nipple sensitivity or the ability to breastfeed. For most patients, rearranging the natural breast tissue does not require the use of implants or fat grafting; however, this is often determined during an in-depth consultation with Dr. Emer and his skilled team of plastic surgeons.
Male Chest Reconstruction
Men suffering from gynecomastia—a swelling of the breast tissue caused by an imbalance of estrogen and testosterone, also known as “man boobs” or “gyno”—can benefit from a Male Chest Reconstruction procedure, which not only removes the excess tissue in the breast area and the surrounding skin but also sculpts the chest through various surgical techniques, thereby preventing any indentations or hollows in the chest and giving it an athletic shape.
Performed by body sculpting pioneer Dr. Jason Emer, in conjunction with his team of plastic surgeons, the procedure involves Hi-Definition Liposculpture and fat removal via small, barely noticeable incisions beneath the areola and in the armpit; skin and gland removal; surgical resection of the enlarged and painful breast glandular tissue; lifting the chest; and raising the nipple with minimal scarring. The fat removed from the breast area (and surrounding localized fatty areas) is purified, enhanced with growth factors and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and later used to sculpt and contour the entire chest through fat grafting. The results of this combined reconstructive procedure are a long-term shape, a more athletic, defined chest, a lifted, sculpted upper body, and renewed confidence.
Breast Implant Revisions
Breast implant revisions are arguably some of the most complex, technically challenging aesthetic surgeries. A revision mastopexy (breast lift revision) may be necessary to address issues with symmetry, correct surgical scars, or obtain overall aesthetic improvements. In the case of implant malpositions or stretch deformities—which occur when the breast tissue cannot support the weight of the implant—the resolution may be a breast implant pocket adjustment, scaffolding, tissue reinforcement, or any combination of these advanced techniques. And in numerous procedures, new implants and/or fat grafting may be employed to correct deformities and previously botched procedures, add volume, improve overall appearance.
Issues and conditions resulting from Breast Implant Surgery can vary greatly—after all, the body is responding to the introduction of foreign bodies—and the techniques to resolve these issues depends on a multitude of factors, including your age, the severity of your specific condition(s), surgical history, and desired outcome. However, one thing is clear: Breast revisions of all varieties must be performed by an experienced, highly skilled breast surgeon. At Jason Emer MD, patients benefit not only from the skill and expertise of our plastic surgeons but also the artistry, innovative methods, and cosmetic expertise of Dr. Jason Emer. Together, Dr. Emer and his plastic surgeons create a personalized road map of the procedure and use a customized, multifaceted approach to obtain the desired results.
While a face lift traditionally lifts and tightens the skin and soft tissues of the face to reverse the aging process, this is not a singular procedure with a fixed protocol. In the hands of experienced cosmetic or plastic surgeons, a face lift is in fact a rejuvenation of the entire face and an intricate combination of both surgical and non-surgical procedures customized to each patient’s condition and aesthetic goals.
Dr. Jason Emer and his skilled plastic surgeons begin with a comprehensive consultation, carefully evaluating all parts of the face (the forehead, cheeks, eyes, nose, earlobes, chin, jawline and neck) to identify crepey skin, skin laxity or looseness, fatty pockets, and eye bags. We then seek out opportunities for limited incisions (to reduce downtime and scarring) and determine the optimal course of action to acquire a balanced, natural, aesthetic appearance. In severe instances of facial aging, our plastic surgery experts may recommend skin removal and recontouring of the deeper tissues of the face and neck to achieve extensive facial rejuvenation. Maintaining facial harmony is key when performing a surgical face lift; therefore, we often accompany this procedure with brow lifts, eyelid surgery, and other facial cosmetic surgeries. If needed, facial implants can be used to obtain a subtle yet dramatic transformation.
For patients with minor facial aging, subtle excess skin removal is paired with nonsurgical rejuvenation treatments—including energy-based facial resurfacing with Renuvion/J-Plasma, NovaThreads and Silhouette InstaLift for thread lifting and collagen stimulation, deep microneedling treatments with radiofrequency skin tightening, and long-term skin care maintenance—to produce significant improvements and a healthier, more youthful appearance. A renowned specialist in combination nonsurgical treatments, Dr. Emer advises his younger patients to obtain regular preventative treatments to not only improve skin texture, color, and tone but also to ward off the effects of aging.
For some individuals, the effects of aging on the eyelids result in puffy eye bags, loose, excess skin below the eyes, or droopy and hooded upper eyelids. These visible, unattractive, and often bothersome signs of aging can be reversed through blepharoplasty, a surgical eyelid lift procedure involving the removal of excess fat, skin and muscle from the lower and upper eyelids, resulting in a tighter, more rested and ultimately more youthful appearance. For appropriate candidates, Dr. Emer and his team can make the surgical incision on the inside of the eye to minimize scarring and downtime.
A pioneer in non-invasive procedures, Dr. Emer may employ an array of nonsurgical treatment options—either in place of or as a complement to surgery—to achieve eyelid rejuvenation: Thermage radiofrequency skin tightening of the eyes, brown and forehead; Botox injections to reduce lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet; injectable fillers to lift the brow; and fractional laser treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for overall textural improvement. If a more aggressive treatment plan is warranted, Renuvion helium plasma resurfacing can produce significant improvements in deep eye wrinkles, sun damage, pores and scars in a single treatment.
Here I am doing a non-surgical eyelid lift with Renuvion helium plasma resurfacing, which uses focused heating to tighten and peel the upper layers of the skin. This is a more aggressive treatment for those who have significant sun damage, deeper wrinkles, and pores, or scars. This patient wanted to avoid eye surgery and improve her eye wrinkles in one big treatment. This is the most advanced technology in external heating treatments to tighten and resurface the skin. The healing time I a few weeks but the results are exceptional when done by an expert.

The natural effects of aging are often most apparent in our face and around our eyes as collagen begins to degrade and our signature features begin to droop and sag. For many, a substantial lift in the upper face is an ideal solution to improve the early signs of aging. A Brow Lift can restore those elevated, youthful eyebrows and a raised, defined arch, resulting in a more open, rejuvenated look. Following an in-depth consultation and analysis, Dr. Jason Emer and his skilled team of plastic surgeons will determine an optimal approach to meet your desired goals. For lifting and contouring of the eyebrows, scarring is reduced with a minimal incision hidden in the hairline; alternatively, for patients suffering with a receding hairline, a forehead reduction or hairline lowering brow lift may be a better option. Brow lift procedures are occasionally performed in conjunction with corrugator muscle surgery—or removal of the corrugator supercilii, the frowning forehead muscle responsible for creating furrow or frown lines—thereby improving your overall appearance and reversing the aging process.
A pioneer in nonsurgical facial sculpting and body contouring treatments, Dr. Emer often complements and helps maintain the effects of Brow Lift surgery with advanced, minimally invasive techniques that can provide additional lift, promote skin tightening, and achieve a subtle, elevated look (even without surgery): injectable fillers to lift and volumize the temple, forehead, and eyebrows; neuromodulator injections, also known as a Chemical Brow Lift; dissolvable NovaThreads beneath the skin for an immediate and long-term lift; Thermage radiofrequency skin tightening; and Ultherapy ultrasound skin tightening treatments.

The aging neck—evident in wrinkles, crepey or sagging skin, a “turkey neck” appearance, and/or muscular “banding”—is due to natural, gradual changes in our skin, muscle and subcutaneous fat over time or through weight fluctuations. A lower rhytidectomy (or Neck Lift) tightens and recontours the neck by addressing all three of these layers simultaneously. Performed in conjunction with laser liposuction, a submental incision approach involves a 3-centimeter incision beneath the chin. Through this concealed, minimal incision, Dr. Jason Emer and his expert plastic surgeons are able to undermine the skin, remove the fat, internally shrink the skin, and tighten the muscle. For patients with more significant skin looseness or laxity in the neck and jowl/jawline area, a combination Neck Lift and Face Lift approach may be most effective to provide significant lift, contour, and tightening.
To achieve subtle but visible improvements in neck lifting, tightening and contouring without surgery, Dr. Emer often employs a combination of non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments, including Thermage radiofrequency skin tightening; Ultherapy ultrasound skin tightening; Belotero filler and neuromodulator injections to address neck folds, wrinkles and band lines; Kybella injections to destroy fat cells and help eliminate double chins; fillers to define and contour the jawline and chin; and Silhouette InstaLift threading to provide an immediate, lasting lift in the cheeks, jawline, jowls and neck.
Chin & Jawline Surgery
Whether you’re looking to dramatically enhance or change the shape, structure and definition of your jawline or to correct the symmetry of your jaw, Dr. Emer and his renowned surgical team employ the most advanced, state-of-the-art imaging technology to produce long-lasting, substantial improvements in the chin and jawline, resulting in a more youthful, attractive, and masculine appearance. To achieve these results, we design custom silicone implants that suit each patient’s unique anatomy and aesthetic goals and then complement those implants with dermal filler injections—such as Sculptra, Bellafill, Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane or Revanesse Versa—to obtain additional sculpting, contouring and squaring of the jaw. Chin and jawline surgery is typically performed in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures, such as face or neck lifts, in order to attain the best outcome possible.
A renowned cosmetic dermatologist and body contouring specialist, Dr. Emer also employs nonsurgical treatments to achieve natural-looking facial sculpting results. Through a tailored combination of procedures—including energy-based liposuction, radiofrequency and ultrasound energy skin tightening, non-invasive Kybella treatments, Silhouette InstaLift thread lifting, and dermal filler or Sculptra injections—Dr. Emer is able to improve double chins, lift and tighten the skin beneath the chin, sculpt and contour the chin and jawline, and even tighten the face in the same procedure.
Surgical Lip Lift
As we age, the distance between our upper lip and our nose naturally increases due to volume loss in our face and lips. A long-term solution for reducing the length of this gap—which is incredibly beneficial for patients with no upper lip or a “disappearing” upper lip—is a Surgical Lip Lift procedure. Using the bullhorn technique, Dr. Emer and his expert plastic surgeons remove a small strip of skin close to the nose, thereby reducing any visible scarring, and then raise and suture the skin to provide an instant lift. Significant results are achieved in a single procedure with only a few centimeters of skin removed.
A pioneer in nonsurgical facial sculpting and enhancements, as well as a master of custom combination techniques, Dr. Emer often complements the Surgical Lip Lift with ultrasound energy-based Ultherapy on the upper lip to assist with skin tightening. Injectable fillers and dissolvable NovaThreads are also used to rejuvenate, volumize, lift, shape, and contour the lips.
In addition to providing enhanced facial structure, balance and symmetry, Facial Implants can dramatically transform your appearance and reverse the signs of aging. With improved skeletal support, our patients appear younger and more refreshed, improving the longevity of their appearance and allowing them to age more gradually. Unlike facial filler injections—which are typically short-acting with minimal downtime—silicone implants are permanent, durable, reversible, and provide more dramatic results. Facial implants may be purchased as templates or customized depending on each patient’s facial structure, unique needs and desired outcome.
For patients who are not yet prepared to commit to a permanent implant, Dr. Emer is able to enhance facial features and conduct complete facial makeovers through nonsurgical, minimally invasive treatments, including soft tissue fillers, Sculptra injections, fat transfer, and stem cell and platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy. Visit our Facial Sculpting page for more information about Dr. Emer’s revolutionary approach to nonsurgical facial augmentation.
When considering rhinoplasty (or a “nose job”), Dr. Jason Emer and his team of plastic surgeons consider functional issues as much as cosmetic concerns; in many cases our patients are suffering from an airway obstruction that inhibits their ability to breathe easily and compromises the nasal aesthetic. The nose must be addressed as a single unit: Each nasal revision or enhancement impacts all other parts of the nose. Therefore, it’s imperative that you entrust a board-certified plastic surgeon with an extensive knowledge of facial anatomy to perform this intricate, sensitive procedure.
Traditionally, rhinoplasty was performed with incisions inside the nose; another safe, modern approach (known as open rhinoplasty) involves a small, discreet incision under the nose, allowing for optimal exposure. Visualizing the anatomy of the nose is paramount in order to analyze the internal airway, precisely contour the cartilage, and potentially shave down the bone at the bridge of the nose. Septal reconstruction is often included as part of the surgery to improve the outward appearance of the nose.
For patients with hollows, bumps or deformities in the nasal tip or bridge, Dr. Emer uses hyaluronic acid-based filler to add volume and height, to contour, and to enhance the appearance of the nose without surgery. In this area, fillers such as Juvederm Voluma or Juvederm Volbella can also improve skin texture and smooth out lines, folds, and wrinkles due to long-term collagen production. Surgical procedures, such as rib grafts and nasal implants, can complement dermal fillers to provide additional contouring and volume.
