Recovery from Ellevate
After the Ellevate procedure is complete, patients will be given a chin strap that they will wear for three days. Some experience bruising and/or swelling for a few days, but any discomfort is very minimal. Recovery at most is about four days. Some patients have a “tight” feeling when they look down at first, but this eventually resolves itself a few weeks after the procedure.
Ideal candidates for Ellevate
Anyone who has good skin elasticity, is relatively healthy, and is unhappy with the fullness or lack of definition under their chin is a great candidate for the Ellevate procedure. Those without much skin elasticity or significant hanging skin do not make good candidates.
