As the aging process affects our skin, it begins to lose its firm elasticity, causing sagging in the neck and jawline, and resulting in jowls or a double chin. Skin laxity can cause a person to look older than they really are, which is why many people would like to tighten and firm their skin and define their features. For those who aren’t ready for a surgical procedure, MyEllevate® provides a firming lift and a defined jawline.
MyEllevate®, sometimes referred to as "the Zoom Lift", is a suture suspension system that lifts the tissues of the face to create a firmer, more youthful jawline and profile. MyEllevate® utilizes light-guided ICLED® technology with the Suturod®, an illuminated rod used to accurately place sutures in the jawline and facial areas.
MyEllevate® is the first system of its kind, as the Suturod allows Dr. Grover to pinpoint the exact location where the muscles and glands of the neck would best be supported with an internal suture, without requiring a surgical incision. The sutures can then be placed strategically in the most ideal areas to lace the underlying muscles and glands of the features in order to create a lifted, tighter contour.
MyEllevate® provides many benefits for patients, including the following:
A local anesthetic will be applied before the procedure begins. Once it has taken effect, Dr. Grover will make a small nick behind your ear. He will use this as the access point to insert the ICLED lighted suture rod and sutures to tighten and reposition lax tissue. For more severe skin laxity and sagging, another nick may be made under the chin, from which he can further tighten loose skin and muscle.
The complete procedure takes about one hour to perform.
Dr. Grover inserts the permanent sutures to create a support sling within the underlying skin and muscles. This sling holds and lifts your neck and jaw in a firmer, sculpted contour. The MyEllevate® sutures remain within the jawline and neck to provide the missing structure that has been weakened and lost with age. This structure supports the tighter jawline and provides a youthful lift to the features.
Zoom Lift results appear almost immediately and are very natural-looking. Because the sutures are designed to remain in place, the results can last for many years.
After your MyEllevate® procedure, patients will wear a chin strap for a week. This supports the patient's new jawline, chin contours, and neck tissue. During patients' recovery period, patients may feel a tight sensation in these areas.
However, the healing period is rapid. Expect minor swelling and bruising, and some tenderness during the first few days to a week. Most patients are able to return to sedentary work and more normal activities within 3-4 days.
Men and women who would like to non-surgically firm and tighten their jawline and neck to rejuvenate their appearance may be candidates for the MyEllevate® procedure. Ideal candidates should meet the following requirements:
