Here in the UK one of our national newspapers has recently featured a new procedure called the ' Y Lift'. We are told that the procedure, originating from New York, involves 'filling in' deflated areas, particularly around the cheeks, with Juvederm. A titanium instrument is used to to lift muscles, fascia and fat underlying the skin and then the Juvederm is injected to hold everything in the new lifted position resulting in (we are told) higher cheekbones, firmer jawline, less wrinkles etc. The procedure requires no local anaesthetic.
I wondered if:
- you had heard of this procedure and how you rate it?
- given your experience with Juvederm how long you think the results may last ( difficult to be precise I know but let's say best/ worst case scenario)?
- what are the advantages/disadvantages of fat grafting as opposed to the 'Y Lift'
Thank you for your time - this is my christening post!
