If you are in search of a minimally invasive solution to lift and contour the lower face and jawline, Michael Nagy MD, FACS in Wall Township, NJ offers MyEllevate® for facial rejuvenation. This exciting new treatment offers patients the opportunity to rejuvenate and contour the jawline with minimal downtime. This is also a great option for patients who want a less invasive procedure, or maybe you are not quite ready for a facelift, but want some type of rejuvenation to acquire a more youthful appearance.

The MyEllevate® procedure was developed by Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory Mueller. Dr. Mueller has been instrumental in the development of ICLED® guided suture systems: a way to visualize suture placement by the ability to see under the skin using light guided technology. This unique system is utilized in the MyEllevate® procedure and has been well-received by plastic surgeons who are trained in this technology.

What is the difference between a neck lift and MyEllevate®?
A neck lift procedure is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. The plastic 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. Through these incisions, he or she will tighten the neck muscles and/or underlying tissues and remove excess, sagging skin to restore a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance to the neck. Recovery time after a neck lift will depend on the individual, as well as the extent of surgery. Typically, patients return to daily activities including a return to work, within 2 weeks after surgery.
MyEllevate® on the other hand is a minimally invasive procedure that requires almost no downtime. Unlike a facelift or a neck lift, MyEllevate® 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.
