The neck and jawline are both key aspects of an attractive, youthful look. Platysmal neckbands, sagging skin, or a double chin can cause these areas to look older or less appealing than you want them to. But at the same time, you might not be ready for an invasive procedure, such as a facelift.

MyEllevate is an alternative to surgery or other involved or invasive procedures. This new, minimally-invasive procedure can treat stubborn platysmal neckbands. MyEllevate is also for those who want to lift the skin of the neck and jawline and create a rejuvenated, long-lasting, youthfully sculpted look.

What is MyEllevate?

MyEllevate is the only procedure available that uses elegant suturing without any major incisions. It is designed to firm and sculpt the neck, profile, and overall appearance of the jawline. MyEllevate uses a permanent suture that is inserted to create a new, supportive structure. This secures a youthful, firm appearance and profile.

MyEllevate’s suture suspension system utilizes ICLED® technology. ICLED® is a patented light-guided technology for facial procedures. It utilizes the Suturod®, an illuminated rod, to accurately place sutures. This breakthrough system is the first of its kind--an advanced, safe approach to cosmetic procedures. 

The MyEllevate technique places the sutures into your skin in a specially-designed pattern, using the ICLED and suture rod to strategically lace the underlying muscles and glands of the neck together--all without surgically opening the area with incisions. This lifts and tightens more than just your skin. It also addresses underlying fat and muscle to rejuvenate facial contours.

What should I expect during the MyEllevate procedure?

You will have your MyEllevate procedure in the office. We will begin by applying a local anesthetic, as general anesthesia isn’t required. No incisions will be made, but a nick will be made behind your ear. This allows your surgeon to insert and use the sutures to reposition tissue, creating a smoother jawline. As needed, they will make another nick under the chin to suture loosening muscle and skin. 

The suture material creates a support sling made of a permanent suture. This is inserted using the ICLED lighted suture rod. The rod gives your surgeon the ability to address the exact location where the muscles and glands of the neck can be best supported. The sutures are placed within the skin and muscles, not on the surface of your skin. The support sling holds your neck and jaw in a firmer, more youthful, and sculpted contour. 

The whole procedure takes about one hour to perform.

What is the recovery like for MyEllevate?

Once the procedure is complete, a chin strap is worn to support your new jawline and chin contours. You may feel a tightness for 2-3 weeks, which is an indication of the new network of sutures.

Because there is very minimal tissue damage during the procedure, most patients experience rapid healing with only minor bruising and swelling. You will be able to return to normal activities within a few days.

MyEllevate results are immediate, look completely natural, and can last for years.

Who is a candidate for Ellevate?

The MyEllevate procedure is ideal for any adult who meets the following criteria:

  • You are bothered by a lax jawline
  • You would like a more defined chin
  • You have good skin elasticity
  • You are a nonsmoker
  • You would like to refine your facial features
  • You would like to rejuvenate your appearance

How long will the MyEllevate results last?

This procedure can last many years. Every person ages differently and has different skin quality, so the exact length of the results is difficult to determine precisely. However, the length of the results is measured in years--indicating it is quite long-lasting.

To maximize effects, MyEllevate can also be done in conjunction with other procedures, such as a mini-facelift, liposuction or other surgical and non-surgical procedures.
