MyEllevate® Procedure Before & Afters
What is MyEllevate®?
MyEllevate is a unique, minimally invasive procedure that lifts the glands and the muscle to provide a better contour for the neck and jawline. In the past, the only way to effectively tighten and contour the structures in the neck (platysmal bands) that are responsible for vertical banding was an open neck lift procedure with a long incision and significant downtime. You can see the results in these MyEllevate® procedure before & afters.
How does MyEllevate® work?
Using the ICLED®light guided suture system, surgeons can easily place a suture support system without incisions that immediately elevates and approximates underly structures.
How long does the MyEllevate® procedure take to perform?
For most patients, the MyEllevate® procedure takes less than one hour to perform using local anesthesia. There is generally very little, if any, bruising and swelling and most people can return to normal activities within a few days.
What is the difference between a neck lift, a thread lift, and the MyEllevate® treatment?
A neck lift procedure is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. The cosmetic surgeon will make a small incision behind each ear, and depending on the patient’s needs, there may also be a third small incision underneath the chin or on the front of the neck. Recovery time is up to several weeks.
The MyEllevate® treatment, on the other hand, is a minimally invasive procedure that requires almost no downtime. Unlike a facelift or a neck lift, the MyEllevate® procedure doesn’t require incisions or removal of skin and can be performed under local anesthesia in a surgeon’s office. Patients love it because it is a quick procedure (about an hour) and provides natural-looking results. Most patients experience rapid healing with minor bruising and swelling due to minimal tissue trauma.
Although MyEllevate® is often confused for a thread lift because it utilizes sutures, it’s different because the results from the MyEllevate® procedure last indefinitely, whereas with a thread lift, they are temporary. MyEllevate® procedure before & afters show the results.
