What is rhinoplasty?

When considering rhinoplasty (or a “nose job”), Dr. Jason Emer and his team of Beverly Hills 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.

What is our approach to rhinoplasty?

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.

 What is a non-surgical rhinoplasty?

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.

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.
