Y LIFT® is a minimally invasive procedure that strategically replenishes anatomical volume loss in the face to restore the youthful foundation using injectable fillers. 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 tone appears wide at the top, spanning the eye and cheekbone region, while the second spans the entire jawline; both narrow down to a point culminating at the chin. As we age, the arms of these “Y” shapes begin to widen steadily downward and the face begins to lose structural volume and deflate.

Y LIFT® Candidate
The Y LIFT® is suitable for most patients, male and female, between the ages of 20 and 90 years old. It is great for people who would like to experience the benefits of facial rejuvenation without the need for surgery. The Y LIFT® patient should be in good overall health and understand the nature of dermal filler injection treatment.
The Y LIFT® treatment is performed using a specialized blunt titanium instrument that 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. An APS board-certified plastic surgeon and expert injector will pick the right filler for you to avoid allergic reactions and adverse side effects. Thankfully, there are many different dermal fillers available, which means that there are numerous ways we can perform a Y LIFT®. The strength of the muscle maintains the filler in place and gives lift and prevents sagging. The face is then sculpted by hand.
