A smooth jawline, defined cheekbones and bright eyes are classic signs of a youthful complexion. Through no fault of yours, though, all these characteristics can dull with time. As the body produces less collagen and skin begins to sag, your facial features start to lose definition – and soon enough, there goes that prized jawline.
To date, the only solution for this is the facelift, a surgical process that removes tissues and tightens the remaining skin. This procedure can be invasive and uncomfortable, and it requires a significant healing time. Luckily, such a procedure is no longer necessary to attain a more “snatched” jawline.
If you’re looking for an innovative treatment that firms the tissues around the jaw without surgery, MyEllevate is your solution! This cutting-edge procedure involves extremely minimal changes to your body, but with a maximum effect, giving you the neck lift for which you’ve been searching.
If you live in New York City and are looking for a jawline lift without surgery, Dr. Sobel is now offering this service in his Manhattan NYC office. Here’s everything you need to know about how to obtain a jawline and neck lift with MyEllevate.
What Is MyEllevate?
The MyEllevate procedure is a short, simple process. Doctors begin by numbing the area around your neck and jawline, then they make tiny holes in your tissue to reach your platysma muscle bands. Through these holes, they insert special non-dissolvable sutures and weave or lace them around your muscle bands. This allows them to pull the muscles, tightening the tissues in the area. It’s the perfect, noninvasive, comfortable neck lift without surgery.
The Best Candidates for MyEllevate
MyEllevate works for both men and women, and any gender in between. Good candidates for a jawline lift without surgery include those who:
- Are 30 or older and concerned about sagging skin around the neck and chin.
- Do not smoke, including tobacco products.
- Have overall good health.
If you take care of yourself, don’t smoke and would like a smoother jaw, then MyEllevate is likely a treatment that will work for you!
Benefits of MyEllevate
One need only look at the MyEllevate procedure before and after pictures to see the benefits. This 60-minute procedure provides a visible lift and tightening of the jaw, jowls and neck. It also:
- Substantially reduces healing time.
- Increases comfort during recovery.
- Does not require general anesthesia.
- Is a simple inpatient process.
- Lasts for three to five years.
- Creates no scarring you need to cover up.
- Can be repeated when the results begin to fade.
In summation, most people who worry about sagging skin are delighted with the results, especially considering how easy the treatment is and how long the results last.
What to Expect from Your MyEllevate Recovery
So now you know what the procedure is like and what the benefits are, you’re wondering about the recovery period. Specifically, candidates want to know what the recovery is like and how much downtime for which to plan.
The good news is this jaw lift requires substantially less healing time than a facelift – around four days as opposed to four to six weeks. You will likely bruise and your neck and jaw may swell a little, but that will subside within a week or so. You may notice some tightness in the area for months to come, but it is nothing that should interfere with daily activities.
Common Questions Surrounding MyEllevate
Here’s a quick look at some of the most common FAQs when it comes to MyEllevate.
Q: Is MyEllevate the same as a facelift?
A: No. A facelift is a surgical procedure that involves a long incision, sutures and significant healing time. MyEllevate is extremely minimally invasive, short and with rapid healing.
Q: Is MyEllevate painful?
A: In the days following your surgery, you may notice some bruising, swelling, discomfort or tightness, but it is not typically painful.
Q: How long is recovery after MyEllevate?
A: Recovery is short from this procedure, and you should be able to return to work the following week.
Q: When will I see results from MyEllevate treatment?
A: Your MyEllevate results will be apparent right away following the surgery, especially after the bruising has gone down. However, you will most likely continue to see improvement for the next three to six months.
