Do you want higher cheekbones and a more defined jawline?
Facial sagging is a common sign of aging that can be difficult to ignore. As we age, our bone structure actually shrinks over time, causing us to lose our youthful facial contours. This is why Dr. Patel and Dr. Goldfarb are happy to offer patients the Y-lift procedure, which focuses on lifting your cheekbones, revitalizing your under-eye areas, and lifting your upper neck to define your jawbone. Patients love the Y-lift because it requires no surgery, no anesthesia, and no facial incisions. The entire procedure takes about 15-30 minutes and leaves you with results that can last 2-4 years. We know that you’ll love the instant effects of this facelift, famously called the”Miracle 30-Minute Facelift” by Dr. Oz, because of its quick procedure time and its longlasting results.
Y-Lift in Langhorne, PA
Dr. Patel and Dr. Goldfarb are happy to be Y-lift providers for the Philadelphia area for patients. This procedure is performed with a specialized blunt titanium instrument that is inserted beneath the skin and muscle. The muscles are lifted and the injected with FDA-approved hyaluronic acid fillers to hold them in their improved position. Dr. Goldfarb then sculpts your face by hand to ensure you get your desired results. Here are some common questions we get regarding our Y-lift procedures:
Am I a good candidate for the Y-lift?
The ideal candidate for the Y-lift procedure is between the age of 20 and 90 years old. For female patients, this procedure accentuates the cheekbones, improves under eye hollowness, and lifts the upper neck. For male patients, we focus on highlighting your more masculine facial features through subtle cheek projection and a more prominent jawline.
Why is it called the Y-lift?
The Y-lift was created based on the theory that youthful faces typically demonstrate two predominant Y shapes. These shapes span the under-eye and cheekbone region, as well as the entire jawline. As we age, these Y’s begin to lose their shape and sag. By addressing these two main Y shapes, the Y-lift is quickly able to restore the volume and shape of your face, leaving you with a more youthful appearance.
How much downtime does the Y-lift require?
Because this procedure is minimally invasive and performed with a local anesthetic, you should not experience any downtime. Patients are often able to return to work the same day of their procedure. You should experience very minor facial swelling, soreness, or bruising following the procedure compared to other styles of facelifts, making this one of the most convenient revitalizing procedures.
