MyEllevate at Gilpin Facial Plastics & Aesthetics

Posted April 10, 2024 in Non-Surgical

What is MyEllevate?

Although the neck lift remains the gold standard for loose neck skin and sagging in the lower face, it’s not for everyone. MyEllevate is an exciting new minimally-invasive procedure offered by Dr. David Gilpin that can help tighten your jawline, define your profile, and help you look as young as you feel. Here is what to know about this new non-surgical neck lift technique and how you can use it to completely rejuvenate your look here at our state-of-the-art Nashville office.

What is MyEllevate?

MyEllevate uses tiny incisions underneath the chin to allow Dr. Gilpin to place a unique suture system in the muscles of the neck. Over time, it’s common for the neck muscles to sag and become weak, reducing the youthful definition under the chin. The specialized suture system used in MyEllevate can lift and tighten the neck, enhancing its natural contours and reducing signs of aging. MyEllevate sometimes includes the use of liposuction to contour the jawline and remove stubborn fat, contributing to an even more rejuvenated neckline.

MyEllevate is different from the traditional neck lift because it does not remove excess skin. It’s less invasive and can be an attractive alternative for patients who are beginning to see aging signs but don’t want to commit to a full surgical procedure – making it one of our foremost options for facial rejuvenation here at Gilpin Facial Plastics & Aesthetics.

What are the Benefits of MyEllevate?

One of the biggest benefits of MyEllevate is that it can be performed using only a local anesthetic. One factor that turns many patients away from a traditional neck lift is the potential for general anesthesia. MyEllevate produces results comparable to the neck lift but without the more invasive techniques. Similarly, despite being a minimally-invasive, in-office procedure, it produces long-term results.

Who is a Candidate for MyEllevate?

The best candidates for MyEllevate are patients who are noticing a lack of definition in their neck and submental area. These patients are typically in their 30s or 40s and still have good skin laxity and quality. One of the determining factors in candidacy for MyEllevate is whether you have any stretched, lax skin underneath your chin. MyEllevate does not correct this, meaning you may be a better candidate for a neck lift if you have a “turkey neck” or sagging skin. Dr. Gilpin, our dual-board-certified facial plastic surgeon, will help you thoroughly explore your options and make a professional recommendation on the best possible option for your cosmetic goals.

What Can MyEllevate Be Combined With?

MyEllevate is easily combined with other facial rejuvenation options. For some patients, a mini facelift, eyelid surgery, and/or brow lift combined with MyEllevate can remove years from their facial profile when they’re beginning to see signs of aging. MyEllevate is usually combined with submental liposuction and RF Microneedling to further enhance the jawline. Finally, MyEllevate can also be combined with many of our best non-surgical treatments like lasers to rejuvenate and tighten small amounts of skin laxity.
