Y Lift in Milwaukee, WI

Lift & Tighten with no downtime


Y Lift® is a non-surgical procedure that adds structure and volume to reverse facial aging in numerous ways.

It’s called the Miracle 30-Minute Facelift for a reason. It lifts and sculpts sagging cheeks, hollow under eyes, and tightens upper neck skin while creating a more defined jawline and chin. The Y Lift is done in a quick and easy outpatient setting and is performed while the patient is awake. If you want more lifting, tightening, and longevity of results than a liquid facelift can provide, but aren’t ready to have facelift surgery, the Y Lift is ideal. It provides results that are similar to a facelift, but with no downtime and fewer risks.

What is a Y Lift procedure?

Some patients want to avoid facelift surgery. They may choose injectable facial fillers (such as the liquid facelift) instead

Fillers smooth wrinkles and add volume to hollow areas of the face. However, what happens if you need a lot of filler to correct signs of facial aging? Adding too much filler below the skin has an unnatural look. The Y Lift solves this problem by placing fillers below the muscle. That way, more filler can be used for a better lifting effect, with results that look entirely natural.

What happens during a Y Lift?


The Y Lift® takes just 30 to 45 minutes. There is no need for incisions, stitches, or general anesthesia.

It’s quick and painless. The procedure is done while the patient is fully awake, sitting in a comfortable treatment chair. A local anesthetic is used so there is no pain. Facial muscles are gently lifted with a sterile titanium instrument that is as thin as a needle. Next, an FDA-approved dermal filler (such as Juvederm or Restylane) is placed between the muscle and bone. The filler lifts the facial muscles for a more youthful appearance. Dr. Zelko then artistically shapes the filler by hand to accentuate your natural facial features.

Y Lift vs Liquid Facelift vs Facelift Surgery

Milwaukee Y-Lift

With a liquid facelift, dermal fillers add volume and reduce wrinkles so your face looks smoother and younger without surgery. Similarly, a Y Lift also uses dermal filler to make your face look younger. However, in the Y Lift, the dermal filler is injected beneath the muscle (instead of below the skin). A special titanium instrument lifts the facial muscles at the same time for better lifting and support of the filler.

A face that once looked old and collapsed now looks visibly lifted and smoother. Adding dermal fillers below the muscle during a Y Lift allows your doctor to use more filler than a liquid facelift. The muscle coverage helps to make a larger amount of filler look natural. This is something that is not possible with a liquid facelift since the dermal filler is placed just below the skin. Since more filler is used during a Y Lift, it provides a more dramatic lifting effect than a liquid facelift. More filler also means a longer-lasting result. A Y Lift lasts nearly 3x as long as the liquid facelift. Does it sound too good to be true? It gets even better. Unlike a facelift surgery, the Y Lift has no downtime, no cuts, no stitches, and can be done comfortably with a local anesthetic while the patient is fully awake. Results are instant.

How long does a Y Lift last?


Y Lift results last 1 to 3 years. The treatment works immediately, so you can start enjoying the boost in confidence that comes with a younger-looking face from Day 1.
