When we got the invite to meet Dr. Yan Trokel, MD, DDS and witness his Y-Lift procedure (a four years old ‘process’)- we had visions of Harry Potter-like wizards waving wands-transforming clients form eh to fab.
Well seeing is believing.
The Y-Lift is a pioneering non-surgical lift developed by a Dr. Trokel-a Columbia University schooled Dentist and Maxillofacial Surgeon-who has extensively furthered his education and worked long stints in plastic surgery. The latter is important to us…after all, we hear the horror stories of untrained docs hanging up a shingle to jump in the cosmetic plastic surgery money train.
WHAT IT DOES
The Y-Lift corrects the sagging mid-section of a face (men and women) and re-apportions facial features-to look like one’s youthful self …and not a freak show facsimile.
With strategically placed deeply injected Juvaderm™, (a hyaluronic filler that’s FDA approved), a “moldable cheek form” in the malar region is achieved with the added plus of firming up the jaw line and diminishing the folds that can form from the nose to the mouth.
Other big pluses are that there is minimal, if any bruising, no downtime –a key in our busy lives, no anesthesia, and the “lift” which is customized to fit each patient- gradual falls in two years (= or -) as the filler is absorbed.
As Dr. Trokel noted “…older patients have the most dramatic results…(but) everyone from thirty somethings on up- can do small things to ward off the major procedures.”
COSTS: Comparable to our gal pal's seemingless endless Sculptra injections.
