What is MyEllevate?
As we age, our skin gradually begins to sag, which can lead to vast amounts of insecurity for men and women around the world. Often times, the solution to lax skin in the face is a surgical procedure, such as a facelift or a thread lift. However, not everyone is comfortable with the associated risks and downtime of surgery. Fortunately, the MyEllevate facial rejuvenation procedure is an innovative new way to treat the contour of the neck and lower jaw in a minimally invasive manner while still achieving natural, long-lasting results. Dr. Patrick Lucaci is highly trained in performing this revolutionary procedure at his practice in Salina, KS.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for MyEllevate?
First and foremost, ideal candidates for MyEllevate should have minimal skin laxity in the neck, as well as skin that is just entering the early stages of aging. This procedure can also provide incredible results for patients who have prominent glands that are noticeable underneath their neckline, even if this is not related to the aging process. Lastly, this is a great option for those who are unable or unwilling to undergo a surgical operation to treat the problematic areas.
How is MyEllevate Performed?
Prior to the procedure, local anesthesia will be administered in order to ensure the comfort of the patient throughout the entirety of the operation. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Lucaci will utilize a light-guided suture system, known as ICLED®, in order to address the glands and muscles found underneath the skin of the neck by providing a support system throughout the neck and the back of the jawline. This new contour gives patients a much more defined and youthful appearance throughout the lower face, neck, and jawline. The procedure is performed entirely in-office and usually only takes around an hour to perform.
What to Expect After MyEllevate
Results from MyEllevate are instantaneous and long-lasting. In fact, many patients have seen results last for up to seven years after the procedure. Patients will go home wearing a chin strap and return the following day for a post-op appointment to ensure everything is healing properly. Within a few days, most patients feel comfortable going back to work. Due to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, there are usually very few visible signs of an operation.
There may be some initial swelling and/or bruising, but this will usually subside within about a week. In order to prevent further swelling, we recommend that patients avoid heavy lifting and exercise during the first 1 – 2 weeks. Even after the swelling and bruising have faded, there may still be a slight amount of tightness in the neck and behind the ear when you look down. This is entirely expected and is caused by the support system of the sutures. Within 2 – 3 weeks of the procedure, this feeling is typically gone and most patients usually feel normal.
