What is the price of a 15 minute Y lift and does it last 2 years?


Question: What is the price of a 15 minute Y lift and does it last 2 years?

Answer from Dr. Dean Kane, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon from Baltimore:The “Y” lift is another twist on the evolution of the “Liquid Facelift”. The use of injectibles based on the following types of minimally invasive and non-invasive options is the basis for non-surgical facial enhancement.  ​ ​These options include:

  • ​ZO Obagi Skin Health and Rejuvenation
  • ​​Temporary Volumizing Fillers: HA (Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Voluma, others), Calcium Hydroxyapatite (Radiesse)
  • ​Permanent Volumizing Fillers: Artefill and Artecol, Silicone
  • ​Biostimulants: Sculptra
  • ​Laser and Lights: ClearLift, IPL, fractionated CO2 or erbium non-ablative lasers
  • Muscle Relaxers: Botox, Dysport, others
  • (even a surgical facelift is temporary, pushing “back the clock” many more years than the above)
Only 2 techniques are approved to be marketed by the FDA with 2 or more year duration. These are Voluma and Sculptra. Each provides different rejuvenating changes in the face. ​ ​You must consider daily, weekly, monthly and yearly options to reverse aging just as the body continues the aging process. ​ ​No injectible will “stop the clock” only to resume 2 years later. The body and of course, the face continue to age but you will look better if the options you choose are matched by the skills of your Board Certified, well experienced Plastic Surgeon and expert injector. ​ ​I hope this has helped. All the best.   Dr. Dean Kane Center for Cosmetic Surgery and Medspa Baltimore, MD 21208 www.DrDeanKane.com 410-602-3322 DeanKane@DrDeanKane.com
