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.
