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.
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.
This non-surgical lift offers many benefits:
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.
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.
Had a great experience. Dr. Maningas and his staff are very kind. All of my questions were clearly answered and I felt completely comfortable.
I cannot not say enough wonderful things about Dr. Maningas and his practice. Everyone is so pleasant. I could not be more happy with the care I received!
Dr. Maningas is a fine person, skilled surgeon, and enjoys helping his patients. He will be a true asset to the community and I look forward to his return to Joplin.
