The Y-Lift

Treating the signs of aging

Yan Trokel, MD is the Founder and Director of The YAN Center for Corrective & Cosmetic Surgery.

Dr. Trokel’s areas of expertise include cosmetic facial surgery, endoscopic surgery, reconstructive surgery of the soft and hard tissues following cancer resection or trauma, orthognathic surgery, and craniofacial surgery.

The “Y-lift” is a new minimally invasive procedure used to treat the signs of aging. One of the key functions of aging is loss of volume in the face. Around the age of 30, volume loss and thinning of skin can become especially noticeable in the cheekbone and jawline area, which can lead to nasolabial folds and jowls. Dr. Trokel’s procedure restores volume to the foundation of the face, rather than cutting skin like a traditional facelift procedure.
