Y Lift

The Y Lift is an exciting, minimally invasive facial contouring procedure. Dr. Greg Chernoff recommends the Y Lift to men and women who desire to add volume and lift to the cheekbone areas and under eyes areas. An expertly performed Y Lift gives definition to the chin and jawline, and contour the upper neck.

The Y LIFT non-surgical facelift is customized to address your cosmetic concerns. Only trained and certified Y Lift doctors can perform the Y Lift. Dr. Chernoff has been trained on this procedure by Dr. Trokel, the inventor of the Y LIFT. Dr. Chernoff is the only doctor in Santa Rosa and Sonoma County to offer the Y Lift.

What Is the Y LIFT & How is it Different Than a Surgical Facelift?

The Y Lift target areas create a “Y” shape on the face. Dr. Chernoff uses a precise sub-muscular technique to re-establish the structural pillars of the face. Dr. Chernoff emphasizes to patients that no incisions or stitches are used during the procedure. A specialized titanium instrument is placed under the skin to lift targeted facial areas. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is then carefully inserted into the targeted areas. To ensure patient safety, longevity, and obtain optimal results, Dr. Chernoff only uses FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Juvéderm Voluma® XC and Juvéderm® Ultra XC.*

The Y LIFT is a minimally invasive treatment that helps restore the structure of your face. The benefits of a Y Lift include:

  • Replaces lost facial volume
  • Defines the jawline and neck
  • Provides lift to sagging aging facial skin
  • Reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles
  • Highlights cheekbones

Ask Dr. Chernoff if the Y Lift can help you achieve your facial aesthetic goals. Prior to any treatment or procedure, Dr. Chernoff or one of our trained and certified Health Care Providers determine if you are a candidate, review the risk and benefits, and provide all possible treatment alternatives.

How Is the Y Lift Different Than Dermal Filler Injections?

The Y LIFT is different than having regular fillers because of the sub-muscular filler placement technique. The placement accentuates the cheekbone region, invigorates the under-eye area, and defines the jawline and upper neck without making the face look puffy or filled.*

What Results Can I Expect From a Y Lift?

The Y LIFT treatment can improve the appearance of your facial profile without incisions or the use of anesthesia. Dr. Chernoff emphasizes to patients that since no incisions or stitches are used during the procedure downtime is minimal. Plus, there are no scars! Patients may continue their activities as normal directly following their treatment.*

Dr. Chernoff is the first and only doctor in Sonoma County to offer the Y LIFT facelift. Y LIFT Doctors performing the procedure for 10+ years demonstrate that results can last up to 3 years, depending on your treatment.*
