MyEllevate or Neck Lift: Choosing the Right Procedure

Posted on


As we age, the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and genetics can take a toll on the appearance of our neck, leading to sagging skin, wrinkles, and the dreaded “turkey neck” appearance. Fortunately, advancements in cosmetic procedures offer solutions to address these concerns, with options ranging from minimally invasive techniques to more extensive surgical interventions. In this article, we explore the differences between MyEllevate and neck lift procedures, helping you navigate the choices for achieving a smoother, more youthful neck contour.


MyEllevate and neck lift procedures both aim to rejuvenate the neck area, but they differ significantly in their approach and invasiveness. MyEllevate, also known as the “suture suspension” technique, is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the use of permanent sutures to lift and support the underlying neck tissues. On the other hand, a neck lift, or cervicoplasty, is a surgical procedure that addresses excess skin, fat, and muscle laxity through incisions typically made behind the ears and under the chin.


MyEllevate offers several advantages for individuals seeking neck rejuvenation with minimal downtime and scarring. This innovative procedure can provide noticeable improvement in neck contour and definition, particularly for those with mild to moderate sagging or laxity. With its minimally invasive nature, MyEllevate often involves shorter recovery times and reduced risk compared to traditional neck lift surgery.


Neck lift surgery remains the gold standard for comprehensive neck rejuvenation, especially for individuals with significant skin laxity and muscle banding. By removing excess skin, tightening underlying muscles, and repositioning fat deposits, a neck lift can achieve dramatic improvements in neck contour and definition. While neck lift surgery requires more extensive incisions and downtime compared to MyEllevate, the results are often long-lasting and transformative.


When deciding between MyEllevate and neck lift surgery, several factors should be taken into consideration. These include the severity of neck aging, desired outcomes, tolerance for downtime, and budget constraints. While MyEllevate may be suitable for individuals with mild to moderate concerns who prefer a less invasive approach, those seeking more significant improvement may opt for a neck lift despite the longer recovery period.


Before undergoing any cosmetic procedure, it’s essential to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon or qualified provider who can assess your unique concerns and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan. During the consultation, your provider will evaluate your neck anatomy, discuss your goals and expectations, and help you make an informed decision regarding MyEllevate, neck lift surgery, or alternative options.
