    MyEllevate™ Neck & Jaw Lift

    MyEllevate™ Non-Surgical Neck & Jaw Lift

    Lift the neck and restore a strong jawline with less recovery time than a neck lift

    The perception of beauty—in both men and women—is largely influenced by a sculpted, clear upper jawline. As gravity and loss of skin elasticity set in, most people see the formation of sagging jowls and a “turkey neck” that obscures the jawline shape.

    Developed by an experienced plastic surgeon with an understanding of patients’ facial rejuvenation priorities, MyEllevate is the non-surgical “Zoom lift” to refresh your appearance by lifting the neck and jowls. For those looking for an alternative to a facelift or neck lift, this minimally-invasive procedure is ideal.

    WHAT DOES IT COST?

    MyEllevate starts at $3000 if done by itself, but is typically done in conjunction with FaceTite/Embrace. MyEllevate combined with FaceTite/Embrace is $7500

    WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?

    Most patients are back to normal activities within 5 days after surgery.

    WILL I HAVE RESTRICTIONS?

    After surgery, you will need to wear a chin bandage to support the area for 24 hours. Avoid exercise and heavy lifting for at least 2 weeks.

    WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?

    Non-smokers, men and women 18+ years old in generally good health with mild skin laxity.

    How does MyEllevate work?

    MyEllevate is a suture matrix that is inserted through a series of very small incisions below the chin. The sutures are placed deep in the dermis, just above the muscle layer, and are anchored behind the ears. MyEllevate lifts and supports muscles and glands whose sagging causes an ill-defined jawline and the “turkey neck” appearance.

    You may choose to undergo MyEllevate under local anesthesia or general anesthesia; treatment takes about an hour or less.

    What are the benefits of MyEllevate?

    This non-surgical lift offers many benefits:

    • Can be performed under local anesthesia
    • No surgical incisions or skin removal
    • No visible scarring
    • Quick procedure, requiring less than an hour
    • Brief recovery period of less than 5 days, with minimal time away from work
    • Results usually last 5-7 years+
    What are the side effects of MyEllevate?

    Some bruising or swelling may be present after the procedure, but should subside within a week. Patients may experience a sensation of tightness in the neck that lasts for a few weeks to several months following the procedure.

    Can I combine MyEllevate with other procedures?

    Because MyEllevate lifts underlying muscle and glands, patients may complement the results of this procedure with skin tightening or fat reduction procedures, such as FaceTite, Embrace RF, or liposuction.

    Am I a good candidate for MyEllevate?

    The ideal candidate for this procedure is one who is in the early stages of facial aging, with mild skin laxity. To learn more about whether or not MyEllevate will help you meet your goals, consult with a board certified cosmetic surgeon.
