Our physical appearance has a way of staying closely connected to our self-esteem. Over time, the natural aging process can take its toll, leaving us with physical changes to deal with emotionally that we weren’t ready for or thought would never be a problem to begin with! As the human body progresses through time, collagen, and elastin levels in the skin that were abundant in our youth naturally decline. In their wake, it’s very possible to see fine lines, wrinkles, and even sagging skin. While the potential for this type of change can happen across the body, when skin loses a significant amount of elasticity along the jawline or under the chin, the result is often an aesthetic that ages the individual significantly.

When you look in the mirror and what you see doesn’t quite match up with the confidence you feel within, there’s no reason to simply endure the changes. Incredible advancements in modern technology have provided the field of cosmetic treatments and services with a long list of options for rejuvenating and tightening the skin– leaving individuals feeling more youthful and beautiful in no time at all. Among these options, the Y Lift has gained popularity amongst patients as a new route to turning the clock back, regaining an original glow, and doing it all without surgical intervention.

A Minimally Invasive Facelift Option with Dramatic Results

While some individuals unhappy with their sagging jowls or loose skin under their chin have long avoided a facelift thanks to its reputation for being quite invasive, the Y Lift takes an innovative approach to tightening skin and sculpting a person’s appearance back to a more youthful state. The Y Lift was developed under the concept that the most youthful faces focus on a ‘Y’ shape highlighting the eyes, cheekbones, jawline, and chin. Those that elect the Y Lift procedure can expect results that not only tighten the skin around these areas, but also restore lost volume and reduce the appearance of area wrinkles as well for incredible final results.

How the Y Lift Works

The beauty of the Y Lift lies not only in the successful results achieved, but in the fact that this procedure generally takes no more than 30 minutes to perform in total. It’s considered an out-patient procedure meaning patients can receive treatment in the comfort of the attending physician’s office. Once the areas to treat have been clearly marked, a local anesthetic is used to ensure patient comfort before a blunt-titanium instrument is inserted just below the surface of the skin. The instrument is used by the attending physician to precisely move the muscles back towards that ideal Y shape. Once the look is achieved, hyaluronic acid fillers are injected to keep the muscles in place. The attending physician can then continue to sculpt the face by hand to the proportions that match up with the patient’s aesthetic goals.

Amazing and Long-Lasting Results

One of the more unique aspects of the Y Lift is the fact that fillers are placed in the space between the muscle and bone. This allows the fillers to last longer than traditional injections and those that elect to undergo the Y Lift procedure can see results last anywhere from 2 to 4 years on average.

Creating the Look You Love

Without stitches, scars, or general anesthesia, patients that elect the Y Lift will see results that go far beyond traditional rejuvenation techniques. This process gives individuals the power to take back their more youthful appearance by picking and choosing those areas they are hoping to redefine on the face. The longevity of the results means that patients will enjoy their new glow and volumized appearance for years to come without having to worry about frequent follow-up sessions. Those that have undergone the Y Lift often report results that are fuller, smoother, and more youthful overall.

Benefits of the Y Lift

Beyond achieving the desired results, the safety factor is an enormous benefit of choosing the Y Lift over a more invasive facelift option. Using the Y Lift, patients won’t have to worry about potential risks that come with the use of general anesthesia and won’t be dedicating themselves to an extensive hospital stay for recovery that always comes with the possibility of infection. Because the Y Lift utilizes a minimally invasive nature, there’s no need to care for stitches after the procedure or worry about significant scarring at the treatment site. Those that elect the Y Lift are able to return to their normal routine immediately after the procedure is finished and report little to no side effects. At most, patients have reported minimal bruising or swelling at the treatment site.
