Y Lift Q & A

What is Y LIFT?

Y LIFT is a non-surgical, minimally invasive face-lift procedure that yields natural-looking results without surgery, general anesthesia, or downtime. The Y LIFT procedure is based on the principle that facial contours should be Y-shaped along your jawline and cheekbones. 


Enhancing your face shape using Y LIFT guidelines helps lift the skin to create a younger-looking, aesthetically pleasing appearance. 

What are the benefits of Y LIFT?

You can reap numerous benefits by choosing Y LIFT at Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics. Examples include:

  • Accentuated, higher cheekbones
  • Revived undereye areas
  • Improved hollowness 
  • A more defined jawline
  • Lifting of your upper neck
  • Better facial symmetry
  • Smoother contours
  • A younger-looking appearance

If you desire a face-lift but want to avoid invasive surgical procedures, Y LIFT might be the solution for you. To find out if you’re a good candidate for Y LIFT, the Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics team reviews your medical history and examines your skin.

What should I expect during Y LIFT?

Prior to Y LIFT, Dr. Bushore uses a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area so you don’t feel any discomfort. During the procedure, he inserts a specialized blunt titanium instrument just beneath your skin and facial muscles. 

Dr. Bushore then lifts the instrument and muscles. He uses hyaluronic acid fillers and his hands to sculpt the treatment area into its new, elevated position. Doing so helps you achieve the tighter, lifted, youthful look you desire. Y LIFT treatment might last 30-45 minutes.

What happens after Y LIFT treatment?

After treatment, you may experience some swelling, redness, or tenderness at the treatment area. You can use an ice pack to enhance comfort and reduce swelling if you’d like. Because there’s no downtime after Y LIFT, you can resume your normal day-to-day routine immediately, but you may want to take it easy for the rest of the day.

Tighter, lifted facial contours associated with Y LIFT are long-lasting, as its effects can stay in place for two to four years.

Don’t let signs of aging or asymmetrical facial contours diminish your self-confidence. Schedule a Y LIFT consultation with the team at Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics over the phone or online today.
