A critical mistake many of our patients make is assuming a surgical neck lift is the only solution to address concerns in the neck and jawline region. Other patients neglect the neck region altogether and only address signs of aging on the face and body. Contouring the neck and jawline, and addressing concerns in this region can boost self-confidence and give patients a more youthful, slimmer appearance in their neck and jawline area.
If you’re looking to improve the appearance of your neck and jawline region, there are a few different procedures at The Waltzman Institute one should consider, or combine, to achieve a more attractive neck and jawline region. To address unwanted fat in the neck and jawline region, a patient may have interest in a liposuction procedure. If the patient is hoping to address skin laxity in the neck and jawline region, they may consider Renuvion, a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure. The third neck and jawline procedure performed by board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Josh Waltzman, is MyEllevate—a minimally invasive contouring procedure that addresses the muscles, glands, and platysma bands of the neck.
MyEllevate is a minimally invasive jawline contouring procedure in which small incisions are made near the jawline and under the chin area, and a suture support system is placed to elevate and suspend underlying structures. This procedure is done under local anesthesia and targets the muscles and platysma bands in the neck for a tighter, more contoured neck and jawline. MyEllevate can also be combined with liposuction and Renuvion to address fat, skin laxity, and jawline contouring in one quick procedure.

If you want to address the most common and visible signs of aging on your neck in a minimally invasive procedure, this treatment is perfect for you. In a single, one-hour session, you can eliminate a drooping jawline region, correct skin laxity, and tighten loose neck glands to improve the appearance of the neck and jawline. Best of all, MyEllevate in Long Beach has the additional benefit of refining the jawline, giving your jaw a sharp, angular appearance. This treatment is ideal for our male and female patients alike.
The MyEllevate treatment takes one hour to perform at our Long Beach surgery center, Institute Surgery Center, and is performed under local anesthesia. This procedure involves our talented plastic surgeon Dr. Josh Waltzman placing polyester sutures beneath the skin and strategically tightening the bands and glands of the neck. This procedure allows for accurate lifting and tightening and long lasting results.
All patients will be given post care instructions that will include wearing a supportive chin strap to wear during your short recovery period. Most of our patients show minimal bruising or swelling and are cleared for within a short period of time. It is also important to abstain from exercise or intense physical activity for two weeks following your MyEllevate procedure.
