In a one-hour procedure, the cheeks and jawline can be enhanced and soft-tissues elevated without surgery, using local anesthetic, in a minimally invasive procedure.
Y Lift Ideal Candidates
Patients from a wide range of backgrounds can be appropriate candidates for a Y Lift. In particular, this treatment is highly recommended for those who desire to improve their appearance but avoid invasive surgery.
Patients considering Y Lift treatment should be in generally good health. A Y Lift can do wonders for your appearance if you’ve been struggling with creases, sagging skin, wrinkles, or loss of facial volume.
What to Expect During the Procedure
When performing the Y Lift, no incisions are made, stitches are not necessary, and general anesthesia is not required. The treatment session typically lasts between 30 and 45 minutes. The patient’s face is cleaned, numbed, and made ready for the Y Lift procedure.
A blunt cannula that is made of titanium is used for the Y Lift treatment. This instrument was developed specifically for the procedure. This tool is inserted past the dermis and the muscle.
The cannula then releases a hyaluronic-acid-based dermal filler product into the area. After the tool is taken out, the area is sculpted by hand to make sure the filler is evenly distributed and to bring out the patient’s natural facial features. This process gives the face a toned and sculpted look.
What Is Aftercare Like After the Y Lift Procedure?
The Y Lift only requires a short period of downtime on average. The majority of patients say that they experience some light bruising and swelling in the mid and lower face, which normally lasts for less than a week. Patients also note that this discomfort goes away on its own. This diminishes as the injected soft tissue heals and recovers after the procedure.
Because there is no need for incisions during a Y Lift procedure, there is no recovery period required, and there will be no post-surgical marks. During the healing phase, patients are strongly advised not to perform any strenuous physical activities for about a week.
What Are the Expected Results?
The results of Y Lift last for around two to four years. When it comes to aesthetic treatments, the Y Lift offers everything a patient could want: it’s minimally invasive and produces long-lasting benefits, and it’s safe for all skin types.
The length of time that results will last depends on how much filler was injected into your problem areas and what kind of product was used. You may expect long-lasting outcomes regardless of the filler used, and we will be able to provide you with additional details about them during your appointment.
