Are you struggling with jowls, sagging skin, and fine lines and wrinkles on your neck and jawline? A neck lift is an option, but if you want a minimally invasive solution, MyEllevate is an effective alternative available at Dr. Andrews Plastic Surgery. It not only provides dramatic results, but those results are long-lasting, and unlike surgery, downtime is very minimal.

What is MyEllevate?

The MyEllevate treatment is a minimally-invasive, nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that uses a suture support system and light-guided technology to lift sagging skin and the underlying tissues in the neck area. Who is a Good Candidate For MyEllevate?

Many people can benefit from MyEllevate treatments, but some are better candidates for the procedure than others. Some of the qualifications for MyEllevate include:

  • Being concerned about saggy jowls and wanting a more sculpted jawline
  • In overall good health
  • Nonsmoker
  • Showing early signs of aging
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Wanting the effects of a neck lift, but don’t want to go under the knife

visulize your potential


One of the hardest parts of getting cosmetic surgery is knowing what you’ll look like after the procedure is done. Dr. Andrews can describe the procedure and the results perfectly, but being unable to see it can make some patients apprehensive. With the Crisalix 3D Imaging software, you can actually see a visualization of your “after” pictures.

At Dr. Andrews Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer the Crisalix 3D imaging technology. This game-changing tool allows you to see your “after” before you ever schedule your procedure.

The MyEllevate Procedure

At the start of the procedure, a local anesthetic will be applied to ensure you’re comfortable. Once that sets in, Dr. Andrews will use the ICLED light technology system to insert and sew sutures through the muscles and tissues in the neck and along the jawline. These sutures allow Dr. Andrews to lift and tighten the neck area without the need for incisions, leaving you with a contoured and youthful appearance to your neck. 

In total, the procedure typically takes no more than an hour. 


Because there are no incisions, downtime is very minimal. Recovery is about four days, and during that time, you will need to wear a bandage or chin strap. But beyond that, you can return to most of your normal activities immediately. You may have some mild bruising, swelling, and discomfort, but those should go away after a few days.

As for results, you’ll see improvements almost immediately. While there may be some swelling, it’s not nearly as much as you’d see with a surgical neck lift.
