Dr Oz: Y Lift Review
In this segment, Dr Oz brought out cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Yan Trokel, to demonstrate how his new cutting-edge procedure, The Y Lift, helps you instantly look younger. The Y Lift is named after the letter “Y” because it is the ideal shape of high cheekbones, a nice jowl line, and a taught neck (Y formation). There is no cutting involved and the procedure only takes 30-40 minutes in your doctor’s office. The Y Lift is different from a facelift because you are not pulling and tugging. With the Y Lift, you’re simply replacing the volume that a person loses as they get older. By re-volumizing, you’ll get an instant result.
Dr Oz: Y Facelift
Dr Oz showed a before and after image and I did see a difference.
Then he brought out Amy, a patient, to show the results. In my honest opinion, she had that “Yes, I’ve had a face lift” look. (Think Real Housewives of Beverly Hills but not as drastic.) I wasn’t really impressed. Amy said that her procedure took about a ½ hour and she was able to resume work later that evening. Amy also stated that she would recommend this procedure to all her friends. (Frenemies, I assume?)
Dr Oz showed an animation that demonstrated that as we got older, the skin sags. The skull elongates and pulls our skin downward. (Reason #4,543 to hate getting older!)
Dr Oz: The Lunchtime Facelift
Diane, an audience member, had the T Lift procedure done real time. She was prepped before going on stage and Dr. Trokel marked her cheekbone and jowl line areas with a black marker. Dr. Trokel took a needle and stuck it in. Diane said she felt no pain, but that really looked like it hurt. Dr. Trokel rebuilt the cheekbone in the lowest area to get the structure back. After that, he did some molding and sculpting. When he finished, you could see a difference. Only time will tell how well it worked. For the last part of the studio audience face-lift, Dr. Trokel did the front part of her face and then cleaned up with small touches. Dr. Trokel stated that he started this procedure 6 years ago and now has people coming in and asking to be trained in how to do it. (Really?)
