What is a Y Lift?
At Wellness Diagnostics & Medispa, Dr. Tumbaga offers the Y Lift, a revolutionary facial contouring procedure that doesn’t require surgery, general anesthesia, or stitches.
A Y Lift rejuvenates your skin through structural volumizing. This process restores the lost tissue that gives your face a Y-shaped structure.
Due to a breakdown of soft tissue below the skin, your skin starts to droop and sag with age. The Y Lift replenishes lost volume to specific areas of your face with injectable hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in your skin.
Who is a Y Lift for?
The Y Lift is safe for men and women of all ages and skin types. This facial contouring procedure is designed to improve various signs of aging, including:
- Droopy cheeks
- Bags under the eyes
- Loose upper neck skin
- Undefined chin and jawline
How is Y Lift facial contouring different from a facelift?
Y Lift facial contouring is a minimally invasive procedure that takes about 30 minutes to perform and requires no down time for recovery.
Dr. Tumbaga may inject a small amount of local anesthetic in specific parts of your face, but you’re awake the entire time and won’t require general anesthesia.
The Y Lift is sometimes called a “liquid facelift,” because it’s a facial contouring procedure that enhances the volume of your face while regular facelift surgeries merely lift and tighten the skin.
What should I expect from a Y Lift procedure?
First, Dr. Tumbaga numbs the areas of your face and upper neck to be treated. Then, she carefully inserts a specialized titanium instrument under your skin to lift and shape the underlying tissues.
Once lifted, she uses the instrument to insert hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in your skin that maintains the structure of your newly-contoured face.
The amount of time the procedure takes depends on the specific treatment area, but Dr. Tumbaga spends about 30 minutes on most Y Lifts. This procedure requires no downtime for recovery, and you can return to normal activities immediately after leaving the office.
