MyEllevate® candidates are men and women who experience aging in their face, neck, or jawline and desire to resolve loose skin and poor definition in the jawline and chin. Ideal candidates should have good skin elasticity, be non-smokers, and be in good general health.
The MyEllevate® procedure is not a thread lift; instead, it utilizes an internal suture to create a more aesthetically natural appearance to your jawline. This procedure is completed under local anesthesia to ensure that you do not feel any pain or discomfort. Once the anesthesia has been administered, Dr. Ostad will create eight to nine small punctures in predetermined areas. These punctures will be located in the submental area and neck. After the puncture area is cleared, the suture rod will be inserted through the punctures to lift the underlying muscle and tissue. In addition to a tighter and more youthful jawline, the MyEllevate® procedure increases the production of collagen in the area to give you long-lasting benefits to your facial aesthetic. This procedure generally takes approximately one hour to complete.
