Dr. Trey Emerson is the leading liposuction doctor in Tennessee. He has performed more liposuction procedures than anyone else in the state and ranks among the top two Aqualipo® surgeons worldwide. He has been specializing in cosmetic and aesthetic surgery for over a decade and is one of a select few surgeons nationally certified to not only perform the innovative and non-invasive Aqualipo® procedure but also train other surgeons in it. His other specialties include NaturalFill® Fat Transfer and Brazilian Butt Lift.
Coming from a long line of physicians, Dr. Emerson set his eyes on medicine at an early age. After graduating from Vanderbilt University Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in English in 1987, he went on to receive his medical degree from the University of Mississippi, making him a fourth generation doctor in his family. He performed his residency at the University of Kentucky Medical Center in obstetrics & gynecology and subsequently began practicing in the same field. The extensive background in women’s health issues he gained in this field is what led him to specialize in cosmetic surgery and aesthetic medicine.
Dr. Emerson is known for his controlled and thorough work as well as his overriding compassion for his patients. He strives for continued excellence in patient care while delivering state-of-the-art natural body enhancement procedures and staying abreast of the latest advances in the field. In addition to Aqualipo®, Dr. Emerson is highly trained to perform a wide array of other non-surgical procedures including Smartlipo®, Brazilian Butt Lift, and NaturalFill® Fat Transfer.
In addition to his work at NuBody Concepts, Dr. Emerson helps deliver medical care to underserved and disadvantaged communities abroad. His medical mission trips as a volunteer doctor have taken him as far as Haiti and India. He enjoys spending his free time with his wife and seven children.
“For me, medicine has always been more than the Emerson ‘family business’ for the last 125 years. My medical career has been an opportunity to serve and meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of my patients. This is true for me whether I’m doing medical missions in countries like Haiti and India or helping patients “fine tune” their bodies and self-esteem right here at home. Practicing medicine is a privilege, and one that always gives me much more than I could ever give my patients.”
