The renowned Y LIFT® procedure is a revolutionary, patented minimally invasive facelift performed in 30-45 minutes which instantly creates beautiful, youthful and dramatic, yet natural-looking results. It was famously dubbed the “Miracle 30-Minute Facelift” by Dr. Oz.
The Y LIFT® is based on the notion that youthful facial contours are shaped like the letter ‘Y’.
If you were to superimpose two ‘Y’s over the face you would see that one appears wide at the top, spanning the eye & cheekbone region, while the second spans the scope of the jawline. Both ‘Y’s narrow down to a point culminating at the chin.
As we age, the foundation of the face (such as the bone) loses volume and causes the arms of these ‘Y’s to steadily collapse inward due to loss of volume. The consequence of the loss of hard tissue results in drooping and sagging of the soft tissue – creating jowls, a sagging or droopy upper neck and marionette lines around the mouth.
The Y LIFT®‘s unique Structural Volumizing® methodology works in reverse and restores the lost youthful foundation and beautifies the individual’s natural features.
NO Incisions • NO Anesthesia • NO Surgery • INSTANT Results
A specialized blunt titanium instrument is inserted beneath the skin and muscle. The muscles are lifted by the instrument and FDA-approved hyaluronic acid fillers are then injected to hold the muscle in its newly elevated place. The strength of the muscle maintains the filler in place and gives lift and prevents sagging. The face is then sculpted by hand. Filler is not injected into the skin and there is no use of needles like in regular filler injections.
The Y LIFT® is performed under local anesthetic. Results of the Y LIFT® typically last 2 – 4 years.
The Y LIFT® rebuilds the two ‘Y’s, otherwise known as the primary facial pillars – maxilla (upper Y) which includes the top jaw/cheeks + the mandible (lower Y) which includes the lower jaw and chin.
These two pillars are responsible for the youthfulness of the face.
A patented blunt titanium cannula is inserted beneath the skin and muscle, creating a pocket between the soft and hard tissues. An FDA and Y LIFT® approved hyaluronic acid-based filler† is then injected into this pocket and is sealed within it. This imitates the lost bone and in turn lifts the soft tissues up, returning them to their youthful, taut position, preventing sagging and promoting longevity.
†FDA approved hyaluronic acid-based filler used in conjuction with the Y LIFT® and its related procedures can vary under discretion of Y LIFT, LLC.
The Y LIFT® is suitable for most patients, male + female, ages 20 to 90 years seeking full facial rejuvenation with no surgery, yielding dramatic yet natural results in under 1 hour.
