What is MyEllevate™?
How does MyEllevate™ work?
MyEllevate™ is exciting because it is simple and easy to perform and a great choice for patients seeking a minimally invasive procedure. It can easily be performed by a MyEllevate™ surgeon using local anesthesia. Using the ICLED® light guided suture system, surgeons can easily place a suture support system without incisions or scars. After about only 1 hour the patient has immediately elevated and improved the look of their neck and jawline.
Is MyEllevate™ a facelift or neck lift?
No. MyEllevate™ is not a facelift or a neck lift. It is a minimally invasive approach to refine and restore a smooth jawline while supporting the bands and glands of your neck.
Is MyEllevate™ a threadlift?
No, MyEllevate™ is not a threadlift. It is a different procedure that offers patient a long lasting results and utilizes a slightly different technique. Unlike a threadlift, the suture used in this procedure is permanent and offers much more support.
How long does the MyEllevate™ procedure take to perform?
For most patients MyEllevate™ takes about one hour to perform. There is generally some bruising and swelling and most people can return to normal activities within a week.
Can MyEllevate™ be used in conjunction with any other procedures or treatments?
Yes. MyEllevate™ can be used as a standalone procedure or in conjunction with NeckTite, submental liposuction, chemical lipolysis (Kybella). MyEllevate™ is a great adjunctive procedure to address the underlying muscles and glands.
Who is the ideal candidate for the MyEllevate procedure?
The ideal candidate for this procedure is anyone who:
- does not want to go under the knife and be subject to the long downtime, scars, possible complications and risks of traditional invasive methods.
- has some skin laxity and is starting to show early signs of aging. This is usually noticed when the neck line starts looking like a ski slope from the side profile, rather than a nice right angle underneath the chin.
- has glands that are prominent underneath the neck line, which happens to a lot of people genetically and are not even age related.
- is thinking about having a skin tightening procedure may also benefit from MyEllevate™. Technology may tighten the skin, but it does not do anything to address the underlying muscles and glands which can contribute to causing the neck to look aged. MyEllevate™ is the only minimally invasive procedure that addresses these problem areas.
