What is the Y LIFT®
The Y LIFT® is a procedure that replenishes lost volume and restores youthful facial contours. The uniqueness of the Y LIFT® is that it not only revives the ideal youthful shape, but also enhances and beautifies your natural features making the procedure suitable for persons of all ages. It accentuates the cheekbone region, revives the under eye area, and defines the jawline and upper neck instantly. The Y LIFT® requires no incisions, stitches, or general anesthesia.
The Y LIFT®
The Y LIFT® is based on the notion that youthful facial contours are shaped like the letter “Y”. For example, if you were to superimpose a “Y” over the face you would see that it appears wide at the top spanning the eye and cheekbone region and then narrows down to a point culminating at the chin.
How is the Y LIFT® Performed?
Dr. Iannitelli is a certified Y LIFT® provider. Using a specialized titanium instrument Dr. Iannitelli will maneuver throughout designated parts of your facial region to instantly lift and contour your muscles, fascia and fat underlying your skin. Once lifted, hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally present in the skin, is used to hold the newly elevated position in place at which point Dr. Iannitelli will remove the titanium instrument. Your rejuvenated face is then “sculpted” to accent and highlight your individual beauty.

Is The Y LIFT® really a “Lunch-time Facelift”?
Yes. The entire procedure takes Dr. Iannitelli between 45-60 minutes. You can immediately resume your daily activities post procedure.
How long is the recovery?
There is no recovery time with the Y LIFT®. However, you may feel slight tenderness, soreness and possible minor bruising for a couple of days post procedure.
Do the results vary from patient to patient?
Yes, Dr. Iannitelli customizes the Y LIFT® procedure to uniquely benefit each patient, she uses a very individualistic approach. As she closely studies your facial structure, Dr. Iannitelli will customize the procedure so that it naturally accents your specific features.
How is the Y LIFT® different from a traditional facelift?
Advancements in current cosmetic technology have made it possible to undergo non-invasive procedures that can mirror the results of traditional facelifts. Patients enjoy similar results without the unwelcoming post-operative effects, such as facial discomfort and extensive healing time.
Can the effect of the procedure be reversed?
Yes. The Y LIFT® is one of the few procedures that is completely reversible.
How long do the effects of the Y LIFT® last?
The Y LIFT® lasts between 1-3 years, depending on the type of product used and the rate it metabolizes within the body. Independent results vary. Periodic touch-ups are recommended to maintain the effects of the procedure.
How does the Y LIFT® differ from other filler procedures?
The key to the Y LIFT® is not fillers, but the specialized instrumentation, placement and technique developed by Dr. Yan Trokel. The instrument is inserted beneath the skin to instantly lift the muscles, fascia and fat just below the skin. This adjustment provides the greatest lift in the face. A hyaluronic acid filler, a substance that is found naturally in the body, is then used to hold everything in its newly elevated position. The patient is then instantly restored, rejuvenated and enhanced.
May I have The Y LIFT® procedure done the same day as my consultation?
Since the Y LIFT® is so minimally invasive, there is no prior testing required. Most patients elect to have the procedure done the same day as their consultation, as we will schedule plenty of time for a thorough facial analysis as well as the 45-60 minute procedure. This is especially true for patients traveling from outside of the area. Although, we do recommend staying the night somewhere nearby so you may come in for a brief follow up visit the next morning for a light facial massage and so that Dr. Iannitelli
can make sure the product is settling in perfectly with your facial features. A follow up is not required, and is up to the patient to attend. Many patients feel perfectly comfortable flying out the same day as their procedure. We do our very best to accommodate the needs of our traveling patients.
The Y LIFT® procedure can only be performed exclusively by Certified Y LIFT® Providers. Dr. Iannitelli has been certified and trained by
