What Is MyEllevate™?

MyEllevate™ was created by Dr. Gregory Mueller, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills. The procedure minimizes platysmal bands and enhances the neck and helps define the jawline. It utilizes the ICLED® light guided suture rod system which allows the surgeon to place a suture suspension underneath the skin without incisions. These sutures shape and elevate the soft tissue in the jaw and neck region, providing a more youthful appearance. Unlike more extensive surgical procedures such as a facelift, no incisions or skin removal is required. This significantly reduces downtime, allowing you to resume normal activities within a few days. A modification of this called MYEllevate plus adds some posterior neck skin excision for those patients whose anatomy is beyond what MYEllevate can handle. This procedure is not a thread lift, it is an elegantly designed neck suspension placed with small poke holes and no sutures. perform MyEllevate™ can be done as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation treatments in order to provide enhanced results.

Benefits of MyEllevate™

You’ll experience the following benefits from the MyEllevate™ facial rejuvenation procedure:

  • Minimally invasive treatment
  • Short treatment time (procedure can be completed in approximately one hour)
  • Rapid healing with minimal swelling or bruising
  • Minimal downtime (resume regular activities within a few days)
  • No general anesthesia required
  • Beautiful, natural looking results
  • Results are visible almost right away and can last 10 years or more

How Does It Work?

This incredibly innovative procedure enables you to forego an invasive surgical facelift procedure, and the recovery period that comes along with it, so you can refresh and rejuvenate your facial appearance, without missing a beat from your day-to-day life. By utilizing what is known as a "suture suspension system," the MyEllevate procedure can lift and reposition facial areas that have started to droop or sag as part of the aging process, working back the presence of fine lines and wrinkles, and generally leaving the face looking refreshed and rejuvenated, restoring that youthful glow.

Am I a Candidate for MyEllevate™?

You may be an ideal candidate for MyEllevate™ if you:

  • Prefer a minimally invasive facial rejuvenation option
  • Have minimal skin laxity
  • Are just beginning to display the early signs of aging
  • Have prominent glands underneath the neck line

Photos are taken and in most cases a medication such as MKO melt is given to help relax you. In the operating room you will be given ProNox nitrous oxide to make you further relaxed and then the skin is cleansed. If platsymal bands are present they are marked and injected with local anesthesia. Three small holes are made and the bands divides using the ICLED kit. 

Additional local anesthesia is injected and tumescent fluid placed. FaceTite, AccuTite or Renuvion is performed and if needed liposuction of the neck performed. The suture suspension is placed with the ICLED system and a neck wrap is placed. Recovery is 24 to 48 hours in most cases and post-operative discomfort is minimal. The neck dressing is removed the following day and a neck collar is used at home for about a week. If MyEllevate Plus is performed, a posterior neck incision is added, and skin removed.
