What is a neck lift?

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 in Beverly Hills and his talented West Hollywood 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 of neck lift and facelift approach may be most effective to provide significant lift, contour, and tightening.

What is a non-surgical facelift?

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 reduce 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.

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.
