What Is MyEllevate®?

MyEllevate® is designed to lift the glands and muscles to sculpt the neck and jawline for a smoother and refreshed look. The innovative and non-surgical procedure utilizes an ICLED® light-guided suture system to contour the target areas. The treatment may be a good alternative for patients who are experiencing mild to moderate degrees of sagging or aged skin in the neck and are not ready (or do not need) to undergo a more invasive neck lift surgery.

What Are the Benefits of MyEllevate®?

There are multiple reasons why patients choose MyEllevate®. The treatment is minimally invasive, so general anesthesia is not typically needed. Results can be long-lasting and recovery time is less extensive when compared to a surgical procedure. Additional important benefits of MyEllevate® include:

Who Is a Candidate for MyEllevate®?

MyEllevate® can be ideal for those in their 30’s and 40’s who are noticing sagging and lax skin in the jawline area (jowls), a lack of definition underneath their chin, and early signs of aging in the neck; however, MyEllevate® benefits patients of all age groups, from the genetic neck, early aging neck, mid-life neck, and aging neck. Potential candidates should be in relatively good overall health, at or near their preferred weight, and should not smoke. Ultimately, those pursuing MyEllevate® typically desire a more sculpted jawline and a smoother, more youthful neck appearance.

What Does the MyEllevate® Process Entail?

To start the process, Dr. Petti administers local anesthesia to the neck to minimize any potential discomfort. With the ICLED® light guided suture system, sutures are weaved through the underlying upper neck muscles and tissue. This technique allows Dr. Petti to lift and tighten the regions without incisions. MyEllevate® can be performed on its own, or in conjunction with other treatments such as liposuction (if necessary) to obtain optimal results. The whole process typically takes approximately an hour and can be performed in our office.

What Can I Expect During Recovery from the MyEllevate® Neck Lift?

One of the benefits of MyEllevate® is that, for many patients, there is usually only minimal downtime necessary. The recovery process generally requires patients to wear a chin strap for about three to four days following MyEllevate® treatment. After which, most patients can resume their normal routines. It’s common for patients to experience minimal swelling, bruising, tightness, and dimpling, which should begin to fade within a few days. Patients are advised to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous physical activities for at least two weeks.
