What is a facelift?

While a facelift 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 facelift 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.

What is Dr. Emer’s approach to the facelift?

Dr. Jason Emer in Beverly Hills and his skilled West Hollywood 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 veterans 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 facelift; 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.

What is the non-surgical approach to a facelift?

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 authority 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.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

As Emerage Medical reopens to the public, we’re implementing extensive protocols to keep our practice virus-free, and our staff and patients safe. Our approach closely follows public health directives and the latest recommendations from medical journals and academies.

Fewer People, Less Risk
The most visible change is reduced in-office staff. Fewer people means less person-to-person contact. We are only seeing about 25% of our normal patient volume and will only increase this by expanding our operating schedule – not by reducing time between patients.

Here’s How Patients Can Help
1. Please do not bring guests unless absolutely necessary, as they will not be permitted in the waiting room.
2. Please continue to wear a mask or face covering until you enter the exam room.
3. We screen everyone who enters the office – staff and patients alike – about recent travel, flu-like symptoms, and any potential exposure to COVID-19. Please help us by being transparent in your answers.
4. Please allow our staff to take your temperature at check-in using a contactless thermometer.

What to Expect After Check-In
After the check-in screening, patients will be directly escorted to their exam room to complete any paperwork. This is to reduce potential contact with other patients. Clean pens and clipboards will be provided to everyone and resterilized between each use.

Even More Safety Measures
Everyone on our staff has been directed not to come in if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 or recently came in direct contact with anyone who’s tested positive. Here’s what else we’re doing to keep you safer:

  • Staff members will be wearing protective masks at all times.
  • All chairs, surfaces, and non-disposable equipment will be wiped down with antibacterial wipes between patients and at the top of every hour. 
  • All in-person meetings with suppliers, vendors, or salespeople have been canceled to reduce unnecessary foot traffic.
  • Hand-sanitizing stations are available in nearly every area of the office.
  • The entire practice will be cleaned each night, including periodic deep cleanings to further sanitize the premises.
