A Visionary Approach to Looking Your Most Youthful Self

Meet Dr. Mark R. Murphy

Double-Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon & Elévolve Creator 

Known amongst the elite of Palm Beach and facial plastic surgery clinics beyond for his refined facial rejuvenation surgery results, double-board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark R. Murphy is a master of his craft. In his two decades of private practice at his world-class Palm Beach Facial Plastic Surgery center, Dr. Murphy has developed a refined, holistic approach to facial aging that produces remarkably natural-looking and sustainable results and goes far beyond the traditional facelift surgery—his proprietary Elévolve Facial Rejuvenation. By considering the physiological changes that happen to the skin and facial structures as we age, Elévolve combines a deep plane facelift surgery and deep plane neck lift, along with other surgical and non-surgical treatments to help his patients look their best in every decade of life. 

Dr. Murphy puts passion and purpose behind every individualized Elévolve treatment plan. He is committed to providing state-of-the-art techniques and technologies that consider global rejuvenation of the full face and neck so patients look refreshed, beautiful, and natural. Says Dr. Murphy, “There is no value in piecing out the quest for a more youthful look. For many patients, undergoing a facelift without a neck lift can end up making the final result look unnatural. Furthermore, restoring a more youthful facial shape through cosmetic surgery ends up looking artificial if sun damage and dull skin tone are not addressed.” Our Elévolve method utilizes a holistic approach to achieve an overall more youthful appearance of vitality and rejuvenation, a methodology not shared by many plastic surgeons.

Dr. Murphy and the expert team at Palm Beach Facial Plastic Surgery are here to empower your confidence at every age by offering a true end-to-end patient experience delivered with the utmost discretion and skill. From your first Elévolve consultation, to surgery performed in our private on-site surgical suite, to your attentive follow-up care and aesthetic maintenance regimen, we are dedicated to helping you achieve a lifetime of beautiful, natural results.

Elévolve: The Evolution of Aging Well

Your face is on a journey, and it evolves during each stage of life. Elévolve understands these stages intimately, offering a comprehensive approach to aging management that empowers your face to gracefully navigate every chapter of its journey. There are three pillars of aging: gravity, volume loss, and sun damage. Elévolve addresses these pillars and the effects they have on your appearance, creating a system of aging management that will shape the future of your face in every decade.

Over time, unwelcome, visible signs of aging may occur in your appearance, including loss of moisture, rough areas, loose skin, wrinkles, etc. Biological factors that affect the underlying facial tissues, such as the loss of volume in the facial fat pads and changes in the muscular and bone structure, make the jawline look less defined and facial volume in the cheeks diminished, contributing to an aging neck. Environmental and lifestyle factors like sun exposure, diet, alcohol and tobacco use, and stress can contribute to wrinkles, lines, and unevenness in texture. Elévolve is a revolutionary surgical approach to early signs of aging that addresses these issues head-on, creating harmony and balance in your facial structure, while also addressing the underlying tissues and creating a youthful appearance that looks natural and beautiful.

The foundation of the Elévolve approach addresses the fundamental appearance of your face and neck—fine-tuned exclusively for you with consideration of your unique stage in aging. It deploys the newest technological innovations and cutting-edge surgical techniques that address the deeper layers and other tissues of the face and neck like the deep plane facelift and deep plane neck lift, along with other surgeries such as a brow lift, upper eyelid lift, fat transfer, and more. These procedures, combined with non-surgical maintenance such as injectables, dermal fillers, and laser skin rejuvenation, will keep you in front of the aging process—and help you maintain your most youthful, vibrant look. By incorporating a holistic approach to facial age management, you will always look fresh and rejuvenated, ensuring that your face never appears artificial or ‘pulled’, but instead naturally youthful and harmonious. The Elévolve approach ensures that your facial contours remain beautifully enhanced and in harmony with your natural features, ensuring that you will never look artificial or ‘pulled,’ but instead radiate a timeless elegance and grace.

By assessing your needs throughout the decades and making necessary adjustments in your treatment plan, our Elévolve approach keeps you looking and feeling beautiful in your 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, and beyond. Each decade of the aging process brings its own challenges based on hormonal, environmental, and genetic factors – Elévolve addresses those factors and tailors a regimen of surgical procedures combined with non-surgical interventions to keep you looking fabulous in every decade. 

Dr. Murphy is ready to address your facial rejuvenation needs wherever you are on the journey, customizing your treatment plan to enhance, rejuvenate, and refresh your look at every stage with your custom Elévolve plan.

Elevolve FAQs


Elevolve is a comprehensive facial plastic surgery technique founded by Dr. Murphy. Dr. Murphy aims to address both the anatomical and physiological changes to the face such as excess skin, lost volume, and thinning facial skin. His goal is to address the three anatomic areas of the face synchronously- upper third (brow/lids), middle third(cheek/jowls), lower third(neck). With traditional facelift surgeries, these areas may be treated in isolation, resulting in an unnatural facial appearance It is always best to keep the face in harmony and account for the natural contours of the face. 

In a similar vein, the physiologic signs of aging should be addressed in the same surgical procedure. Gravity, volume loss, and sun damage are of equal importance to the anatomical components above. 

What is the recovery time for ELÉVOLVE?

While full recovery is 6-8 weeks, most patients are feeling well 2-3 weeks after surgery. This is when they begin returning to their daily routine. 

How long will ELÉVOLVE last?

Result longevity will vary patient by patient. Several factors will come into play such as skin quality, sun damage, age, as well as fluctuation in weight (which can cause the reoccurrence of excess skin). The best way to maintain your natural results is to continue with maintenance treatments such as Botox, laser treatments, and medical grade skincare, and SPF. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will also help in keeping your results longer. 

What are the Do’s and Don’ts after the ELÉVOLVE procedure? 

In order to heal properly, do rest and keep a clean, healthy diet. Small walks to keep your circulation moving is important. Minimizing facial movements is also important in the first week to prevent straining facial muscles or ligaments. 

How should I prepare for ELÉVOLVE?

All patients are required to have pre-admission testing which includes medical clearance, blood work, and EKG to ensure each patient is fit for surgery and does not have any medical conditions that would interfere. We also recommend maintaining a healthy diet avoiding foods high in sodium as this will produce more swelling. Stopping all NSAID products and alcohol should be completed two weeks prior to surgery. All patients begin taking Vitamin C one month prior to surgery to help maintain a healthy immune system. 

Is ELÉVOLVE right for me?

Elevolve is a tailored plan for each individual. Each Elevolve is based off your needs and concerns, incorporating the most appropriate facial plastic surgery options. Dr. Murphy and you will meet to plan your Elevolve treatment together. 

Is ELÉVOLVE painful? 

Every patient is given pain medication for post-operative care. Our patients do very well following their cosmetic procedure with most discontinuing pain medication just a few short days after surgery. 

How soon after ELÉVOLVE can I exercise? 

After 6-8 weeks, you can return to full activities and strenuous exercise such as golfing, running, and lifting weights. 

What type of anesthesia will I receive for ELÉVOLVE?

Intravenous sedation is used for the Elevolve procedure. This is the same type of anesthesia used for a colonoscopy. Compared to general anesthesia used in traditional facelift surgeries, it is much easier on the patient in terms of recovery and comes with fewer possible complications.

Is ELÉVOLVE a facelift surgery?

Elevolve goes beyond a traditional facelift surgery and instead incorporates the neck lift to enhance the natural contours of the neck and lower face, as well. This means it can more effectively reduce a double chin and excess fat, jowls, sagging skin on the neck, and more. This unique surgical technique also allows for other procedures to smooth fine lines, remove excess skin, and create a natural result in the upper face, too.

What is a deep plane facelift?

Simply put, a deep plane facelift surgery is one of the most extensive types of facelift surgery. Unlike the traditional facelift, it goes further down into the facial tissues to manipulate the layer called the superficial musculoaponeurotic system. By restoring this layer to its natural, upright position, it can produce significant results. Additionally, this procedure may also include a neck lift to address concerns in the neck area.

What incision patterns are used with ELÉVOLVE?

Dr. Murphy will choose an incision depending on a variety of factors. Incision sites are always carefully chosen to be easily concealed, and shorter incisions are used to produce the least noticeable result possible.

What is the cost of ELÉVOLVE?

Since Elevolve is customized to each individual, the price range can vary from $39,000-$79,000.
