What is a Y Lift?
Dr. Tracy Evans and her professional medical staff at Pacific Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology Corte Madera provide the innovative Y LIFT procedure. This revolutionary facial contouring technique does not necessitate surgery, general anesthesia, or stitches and offers youthful, lifted results. Through structural volumizing, the Y LIFT restores the lost tissue that gives your face a Y-shaped structure and appearance. When the soft tissue and bone begin to break down below the skin as you get older, it can lead to sagging, droopy skin. Thankfully, the Y LIFT procedure works to reinstate lost volume to the face with the use of hyaluronic acid solution, which is a naturally occurring element in your skin. Learn more about the advanced Y LIFT procedure by contacting our Corte Madera, CA facility to schedule your initial consultation.

"I highly, highly recommend Dr. Evans as a doctor for skin cancer. She really knows her stuff and is trained in Mohs surgery (not many dermatologists are!). I really appreciate that she uses the latest technology to keep track of any spots on your skin and has a suspicious eye. I have had doctors in the past who did a quick skin check and literally missed the mark. I can’t really speak to the more cosmetic aspects of her practice, but I do not like how products are offered to me at the end of my appointment. Without being upfront about their cost or the fact that products are not returnable, Dr Evans’ assistant will present the products she recommends I purchase at the end of my appointment. (There is a small sign by the register about the return policy.) I know that these are vetted products and they must help her practice thrive, but I wish I could be offered either a drugstore alternative or a pharmacy prescription option. I’m sure the cost is not an issue for many of her patients, but it is for me and I am simply not able to do what she recommends as far as products are concerned. However, I find her to be so incredibly smart and trustworthy when it comes to skin cancer that I can simply overlook this part of the appointment."- E.R. / Yelp / Aug 18, 2020
"Today was my first time visiting Pacific Skin in Corte Madera. From the moment I arrived, it was an experience of friendliness and professionalism...both of the receptionists welcomed me so kindly, the medical assistant was very pleasant...and when Krystal Shin, my dermatologist came in, I felt I was in the BEST hands. She was so kind, informative, and professional. Even though I wasn’t feeling the best, they made me comfortable and confident that I would be just fine. I am so happy I found Pacific Skin. Thank you for a great experience!"- C.C. / Yelp / Jun 29, 2020
"An amazing staff working with a cutting edge doctor make up this team of talented artists. I feel lucky to be a client each time."- M.D. / Google / May 29, 2020
Am I A Candidate for a Y Lift?
Safe and effective for men and women of all ages and skin types, the Y LIFT can work to treat several symptoms of facial aging. This state-of-the-art treatment works to enhance and treat the effects of aging, such as:
- Sagging cheeks
- Drooping skin and bags under the eyes
- Laxity of the upper neck skin
- Excessive facial wrinkles
- An ill-defined chin and jawline
The Y Lift Procedure
Prior to the start of the Y LIFT procedure, Dr. Evans will begin by applying a local anesthetic to the treatment areas. Next, a specialized blunt titanium instrument is carefully and gently inserted underneath the facial skin and muscle. As the muscles are lifted, an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler will then be injected in order to preserve the muscle in its new position. The integrity and strength of the muscle keep the filler in place, allowing for a new lifted look with less sagging.
What to Expect With a Y Lift
The exact length a Y LIFT procedure takes to perform may vary based on the specific treatment area; however, Dr. Evans typically spends around 30 minutes on the majority of Y LIFTs. No major downtime is required for recovery, and you can return to your normal daily routine immediately after leaving our Corte Madera, CA office. If desired, touch-up appointments can be scheduled in order to help preserve your results. During your consultation, Dr. Evans and our team will talk with you about your treatment timeline.
