Who Benefits from MyEllevate?   

MyEllevate is a new treatment for double chins, neck waddles, and poor jaw lines.  Young patients with genetically poor jawline definition are not the only ones to benefit from MyEllevate. Many surgeons report that patients in their 40s and 50s are ideal MyEllevate candidates! MyEllevate treats the platysma bands or rope-like vertical bands that occur in people’s necks in their 40s, 50s, and 60s giving a smother, younger jaw, and neckline.

Dr. Wright has expanded the MyEllevate option to surgical patients. Specifically, he recommends MyEllevate to patients with poor neck skin elasticity who were considering having a traditional surgical face or neck lift. “Without good skin elasticity, we might get poor recoil of the skin when we surgically lift it. We use MyEllevate in those patients to give them better neck definition and many of them do not need to have a fully open surgical facelift. ” Dr. Wright shared     

He might also recommend MyEllevate to post-facelift and neck lift patients who want more jawline definition.

What is MyEllevate?

MyEllevate is a suture system, but it is not a traditional thread-lifting procedure. According to Dr. Wright, when inventing this surgical suture system, Beverly Hills, Calif.-based plastic surgeon Gregory Mueller, MD, specifically noted the problems related to gauging depth with suture systems of the past.

MyEllevate’s patented Light-Guided Surgical Suture System, or ICLED, allows surgeons to easily place a suture support system without incisions that immediately elevate and approximate underlying structures.

“Start to finish, I can do it in about 80 minutes,” Dr. Chernoff stated. In Dr. Chernoff’s experience, MyEllevate treatment has minimal risk, pain, and downtime. “The vast majority of my patients just take Tylenol, if that. In most cases, if I treat a patient on a Thursday or Friday, they are fine by Monday. Patients really like that aspect of the procedure.”

Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Gregory Chernoff, MD (Santa Rosa, Calif.), started out as a “nonbeliever” when devices and treatments first hit the market. Ultimately it is his patients that make him a believer, which is what happened with MyEllevate, the suture suspension system recently acquired by Cynosure (Westford, Mass.). His patients were so enthusiastic about MyEllevate, Dr. Chernoff expanded his use of this system. “Without exception, every one of my patients that have had MyEllevate really loves it,” he reported.

For those patients seeking a minimally invasive jawline procedure, MyEllevate fills the void in treatment options.

Who is a candidate for a MyEllevate Treatment?

Young patients with genetically poor jawline definition are not the only patients to benefit from MyEllevate. Many surgeons report that patients in their 40s to 60s are ideal MyEllevate candidates. Dr. Wright has expanded the MyEllevate option to surgical patients. Specifically, he recommends MyEllevate to patients with poor neck skin elasticity who may be considering a traditional surgical face or neck lift.

Dr. Wright started using the suture suspension system as an option for patients between 25 and 60 years of age, who came in with a common complaint; they did not like the definition of their jawlines.

“They point to their submandibular glands, which often are low-lying and detract from the jawline’s definition,” he noted. MyEllevate is a very minimally invasive procedure that allows us to improve jawline definition dramatically and to lift up the submandibular glands if they are low-lying. The treatment enhances patients’ profiles. As one patient put it, ‘It made my face look like I lost 25 to 30 pounds.’”

As Dr. Wright explained, “If you just liposuction a patient’s neck, you have not addressed the gravitational descent of their neck muscles. Furthermore, I was always underwhelmed with what Kybella does for the neck. It was not just a one-and-done, and patients could be as swollen as a pelican swallowing a bird.”

“Without good skin elasticity, we might get poor recoil of the skin when we surgically lift it. We use MyEllevate in those patients to give them better neck definition in conjunction with doing more of the deep plane lifting in the anterior face,” Dr. Wright shared.

He might also recommend MyEllevate to post-facelift and neck lift patients who want more jawline definition.
