What is a Y Lift?
At Pacific Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology San Francisco, Dr. Tracy Evans and her professional medical staff offer the innovative Y LIFT procedure. As an innovative facial contouring technique, a Y LIFT does not necessitate surgery, general anesthesia, or stitches and allows for younger-appearing, lifted results. With structural volumizing, the Y LIFT reinstates lost facial tissue and gives your face a Y-shaped structure and look. As soon as the soft tissue and bone start to break down underneath the skin as you get older, it can lead to sagging, aging skin. The Y LIFT treatment helps to restore lost volume to the face with the use of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Contact our San Francisco, CA facility to learn more about Y LIFT procedures and to schedule your initial consultation.
"Tracy Evans is a great dermatologist. I had a very small bump on my eyelid that was hardly noticeable. She spotted it and it turned out to be cancer. It was amazing to me that she saw it during a body scan. It had already started growing. I was totally impressed with her diagnostic skills and the resulting surgery, had she not spotted it early on, it would have been much worse. She is also very informative and answers all questions and concerns. I would highly recommend her. Also, her staff are very professional and friendly."- M.M. / Yelp / Apr 07, 2020

"Danielle D. did my filler and I had a wonderful experience! This was my first time getting filler and I was nervous, but Danielle put me at ease. She set my expectations properly before, during, and after the procedure. Under her care, I felt safe and respected. My results were phenomenal -- subtle, yet the improvement I craved. It took me awhile to gather the courage to post this because I was nervous to admit publicly that I got "some work." But honestly, we women shouldn't be ashamed to admit this! We're beautiful as we are, but it's fun to explore the world of cosmetics. 10/10, would recommend :)"- G.C. / Yelp / Dec 05, 2019
Am I A Candidate for a Y Lift?
Candidates for a Y LIFT procedure are men and women of all ages and skin types who are looking to correct a number of symptoms caused by facial aging. This innovative treatment works to restore the skin and treat effects of aging, including:
- Drooping skin on the cheeks and mid-face area
- Sagging skin and bags beneath the eyes
- Skin laxity of the upper neck
- Facial wrinkles
- An undefined chin and jawline
The Y Lift Procedure
Before starting the Y LIFT procedure, Dr. Evans will apply a local anesthetic to the areas being treated. After the area is sufficiently numbed, a specialized blunt titanium instrument is gently inserted beneath the facial skin and muscle. After the muscles have been lifted, an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler will then be injected into the area in order to maintain the muscle in its new place. The overall integrity of the muscle helps the filler to stay in the correct place and allows for a lifted look with decreased skin laxity, allowing the face to be meticulously sculpted by hand.
What to Expect With a Y Lift
The time it takes to complete a Y LIFT procedure can vary, depending on the specific area being treated, but Dr. Evans usually spends around 30 minutes for most Y LIFTs. Additionally, major downtime is not required for recovery, and you will be able to return to your normal daily activities immediately after leaving our San Francisco, CA facility. If wanted, touch-up appointments can be scheduled as a way to help maintain your overall outcome. Within your consultation, Dr. Evans and our team can discuss your treatment timeline.
