Surgical and Non-Surgical Liposculpture, Body Contouring, Skin Tightening and Cellulite Reduction, Cosmetic and Laser Dermatology, Skin Care Specialist
Dr. Jason Emer is a board certified and fellowship-trained general, cosmetic and procedural dermatologist.
After completing a preliminary medicine internship in Chicago, Illinois at the Saint Joseph Hospital, Dr. Emer completed a two year Dermatopharmacology fellowship with leading medical dermatologist Dr. Mark Lebwohl at The Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, New York. He spent a significant time on conducting clinical trials on investigational treatments in general and cosmetic and laser dermatology. Dr. Emer’s work allowed many medications and devices to become FDA-approved for cosmetic indications such as passive wrinkles and folds of the face, dynamic movement lines of the face, facial lipoatrophy, facial pigmentation/melasma, photodamage/actinic keratoses, hemangiomas/vascular birthmarks, and tattoos. Throughout his residency training, he focused the majority of his cosmetic interests in the area of body contouring, liposuction, and fat harvesting and transfer, learning from world renowned experts in the fields of dermatology and plastic surgery. He began an HIV treatment clinic where fat transfer, facial fillers, and other cosmetic and plastic surgical procedures were used to enhance facial features and address body disproportions. All of his patients saw dramatic improvements in their appearances that forever changed their lives. Dr. Emer was chief resident in his final year of dermatology residency. After finishing his residency, Dr. Emer moved to San Francisco, California, and received advanced training in the area of facial fillers, peels, laser and light treatments, skin cancer surgery, and plastic surgery with cosmetic pioneers, such as Dr. Vic Narurkar of Bay Area Laser Institute.
Dr. Jason Emer’s involvement in education, teaching, and research/clinical trials has facilitated a host of publications including case reports, review articles, and placebo-controlled clinical trials. He continues to run numerous clinical trials on investigational new treatments in the area of cosmetic and laser dermatology and plastic surgery, and lectures and consults for many of the pharmaceutical and medical device companies on a significant number of the products and devices physicians use daily in their practices for facial and body aesthetics. Dr. Emer has written book chapters on the treatment of psoriasis, complications of aesthetic procedures, techniques and guidelines for facial contouring with soft-tissue fillers, and sports related dermatological conditions. He is featured in Allure Magazine as the only male dermatologist beauty product expert and has appeared in the media as a Beauty Guru for his expertise in skin care and body contouring.
Dr. Jason Emer’s main practice and passion is liposculpture and body sculpting procedures. For obtaining the best results, with the least amount of downtime, and for patient safety reasons, all procedures are performed using a local fluid called “tumescent anesthesia” which allows for a comfortable surgery without the risks and downtime of general anesthesia. Dr. Emer uses all of the advanced technologies for body contouring to tailor his results to each persons concerns, no single device or type of liposuction is used. Multiple devices and techniques are employed during each surgery to get the ultimate results and best long term outcomes.
He is one of a select few surgeons in United States (Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, California) to perform 4D (four dimensional) body contouring in which he has patients flex their muscles, move the targeted areas in real time, and have the patient in various positions such as standing or bending during the procedure to precisely and meticulously define the areas. He uses this technique to “etch” six packs and create highly defined musculature such as the chest, buttock, breast and calves. With the latest advances in fat harvesting with water-assisted removal (WAL), he can use your body’s own fat and platelet rich plasma (PRP) to contour the surrounding areas and define the underlying muscles. Harvested fat can be transferred to other areas to address concerns such facial wrinkles and lack of volume, hand veins and aging, buttock and breast size and lifting, and the muscular size and bulk of the chest, biceps, calves, shoulders, and quadriceps.
As a leading expert in facial and body contouring, Dr. Emer uses his skill, artistry and passion to fix previously botched procedures that have caused major skin irregularities or deformities such as indentations, scars, and discoloration. Additionally, he is one of few surgeons to treat lipedema, as genetic condition of disproportionate body shape and body pain due to enlarged and multiplied fat cells. The end result is a well-proportioned body with definition and contour tailored to each person’s individual concerns and shape.
Dr. Emer’s practice is dedicated to facial and body improvements using both surgical (SmartLipo/Laser, MicroAire PAL, VASER/ultrasound, Aquajet/water-assisted, and non-surgical (CoolSculpting, Ultrashape, Liposonix) techniques for body shaping and fat reduction as well as skin tightening (Thermage, Ultherapy, Velashape III, Venus Legacy/Freeze). In addition, Dr. Emer is a leading expert in cosmetic dermatology and runs numerous clinical trials and lectures all over the world on the latest advancements in non-invasive treatments for aging skin such as lasers, photofacial (IPL), chemical peels, facial fillers (Voluma, Juvederm Ultra, Resylane/Restylane Silk, Perlane,Radiesse, Belotero, Sculptra, Silikon, Artefill), neuromodulators (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport), microneedling, platelet rich plasma (PRP), as well as sclerotherapy and laser vein treatments.
