Seeing sagging skin and loss of facial volume in the mirror can be discouraging
A facelift can provide dramatic rejuvenation, but not everyone wants to undergo this type of surgery. Fortunately, it is not necessary to go under the knife to accomplish your cosmetic goals. Our Asheville Y-Lift is a minimally invasive procedure that can be completed in under one hour, transforming your face without the long recovery time of more invasive procedures.
restores and replenishes
At our office in Asheville Y-LIFT procedures restore lost volume and replenishes youthful facial contours in less than an hour. Also known as the ‘lunchtime facelift’, this non-invasive treatment revives the ideal natural features and youthful shape of the face. In under 1 hour, cheekbones are accentuated, the under eye area is properly defined and the jawline and neckline are tightened.
The Y-LIFT procedure is a less invasive alternative to a surgical facelift performed using a unique instrument that is inserted underneath the skin and maneuvered to a specific part of the facial region to contour and lift the muscles, fascia, and fat beneath the skin. Once lifted, hyaluronic acid, which is naturally present in the skin, is used to shape the newly elevated position in place. At this point, the skin is then shaped to highlight and accent the individual youthful features. Dr. Ibrahim has been certified as a Y-LIFT provider by Dr. Trokel (the inventor of the procedure) himself and Biltmore Restorative Medicine is the only practice from Washington D.C. to Miami that offers the innovative Y-LIFT treatment.
Y-LIFT FACELIFT IN ASHEVILLE, NC
The Y-Lift is a cosmetic treatment that utilizes dermal fillers to contour the face and neck without the need for surgery. This procedure is focused on enhancing the appearance of the cheekbones, jawline, and upper neck, giving the face a youthful and refreshed look in the shape of the letter Y. While each patient's treatment is customized to meet their specific needs, some general techniques may be employed.
During the procedure, the facial structure is thoroughly evaluated, and the skin on the face and neck is cleaned. Based on the patient's preference, a numbing agent may be administered. The dermal fillers used in the treatment, such as Galderma products approved by the FDA, are then injected into the deeper layers of the face with a specialized titanium instrument. This technique allows for a larger volume of filler to be used, producing natural-looking results without appearing overdone. Unlike most filler procedures which use only 1-2 units of filler, this is a full facial dermal replacement and uses over 10 units to produce a youthful, natural, appearance
After the injections are complete, the tissues are massaged and sculpted to optimize the outcome of the treatment. The Y-Lift is a minimally invasive procedure that takes less than an hour to perform and has minimal downtime. Patients can immediately return to their regular activities.
This procedure is also effective in reducing wrinkles and lines around the mouth, and it is suitable for individuals who desire to add volume and lift to the under-eye and cheekbone regions, contour the upper neck, and define the chin and jawline. During the Y-Lift Asheville patients will have a specialized blunt titanium instrument is inserted beneath their skin and muscle to elevate the muscles, and then hyaluronic acid fillers are injected to hold the muscle in its elevated position.
Dr. George Ibrahim is the go-to doctor for the most effective non-invasive, aesthetic procedures on the planet. He specializes in hormone balancing, anti-aging, and sexual health.
Because of the non-invasive nature of this technique and the products used, results are immediate.
Results will last 3-4 years for most. Some patients will choose to come in at year 2 or 3 and add some dermal filler back to lengthen the life of their initial procedure.
Because the Y-Lift technique utilizes non-invasive methods, any pain is minimal. Lidocaine is also used and most patients experience only minor discomfort if any.
Some swelling and bruising is possible and may be noticeable for a few days. Most of our Asheville Y-Lift patients report no significant downtime.
