Dr. Jason Emer is a board certified and fellowship-trained cosmetic, laser, and procedural dermatologist, who specializes in surgical and nonsurgical body contouring, hi definition body sculpting and etching, fat transfer, cellulite reduction and skin tightening. Dr. Emer's practice is located in Los Angeles/Beverly Hills, California.
After completing a medical internship in Chicago, Illinois, Dr. Emer completed a two-year fellowship at the The Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, New York. He spent a significant amount of time conducting clinical trials on investigational treatments in cosmetic, laser and surgical dermatology. Throughout his training, he focused the majority of his cosmetic interests in the area of body contouring/sculpting, 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. After finishing his residency, he moved to San Francisco, California, to further advance his training in the area of facial fillers, chemicals peels, laser and light treatments and plastic surgery such as scar revision and hi definition body sculpting/etching and fat transfer.
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 run numerous clinical trials on investigational new cosmetic treatments in his practice.
Dr. Jason Emer’s main practice and passion is liposculpture and body sculpting/etching 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 with little risks. Dr. Emer uses all of the advanced technologies for body contouring/etching to tailor his results to each persons concerns, no single device or type of liposuction is used. Multiple devices -- such as VASERLipo, SmartLipo, and BodyJet -- and techniques -- such as superficial muscular etching and power-assisted fat removal (PAL) -- 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 to perform 4D (four dimensional) body contouring/etching in which he precisely and meticulously defines target areas to not only remove fat but also contour and define circumferentially. 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. Cellulite and skin tightening are also addressed with each individual case and can be improved with a combination of surgery, lasers, fat transfer, and/or external heating/suction devices to get the ultimate results in body contouring procedures.
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 increased fat cell number and size causing disproportionate body shape and pain. 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 and non-surgical techniques for body shaping and fat reduction as well as skin tightening. In addition to body contouring, Dr. Emer is a leading expert in cosmetic and laser dermatology utilizing the latest advancements in non-invasive treatments for aging skin such as photofacial (IPL), fractional radiofrequency and laser, vascular laser, microsecond YAG laser, chemical peels, facial fillers and Silikon 1000, neuromodulators, microneedling, platelet rich plasma (PRP), as well as sclerotherapy and laser vein treatments. He utilizes combination treatments to get the ultimate results and customizes treatments to the patient's skin type and long-term goals. He personally treats all his patients to ensure the best results and doesn't delegate to other staff.
