A youthful face is defined in the shape of a “Y.” The eyes and cheekbones form the upper arms of the Y, and the chin is the base point of the Y. As the face ages, volume loss occurs, wrinkles form, and the upper arms of the Y become increasingly wider until the defined Y structure collapses. As the pioneer of the FotoFacial® and innovator of light-based anti-aging treatments, Dr. Patrick Bitter is now offering a new, non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment to address this structural change.

The Y LIFT® is an innovative procedure that effectively replenishes youthful volume and facial contours in under 30 minutes. Dr. Bitter has been personally trained by the creator of this procedure, Dr. Yan Trokel, and he is pleased to offer the Y LIFT® as a powerful new anti-aging procedure that can take years off a person’s appearance.

Benefits of the Y LIFT®

  • Structural volumizing
  • Minimally invasive
  • Under 30 minutes
  • No incisions
  • No anesthesia
  • Instant results
  • Results lasts one to two years

“The Y LIFT® procedure conceived by Dr. Yan Trokel introduces a specific technique using HA (hyaluronic acid) fillers to create a structural framework that results in the beautiful contours of a symmetrical, youthful, attractive face. The Y LIFT® procedure in my practice has already generated a great deal of interest from my patients who have eagerly welcomed the immediate, natural-looking results without the cutting of facelift surgery.” – Patrick Bitter, Jr., MD, FAAD


Sometimes called the “30 Minute Miracle Facelift,” the Y LIFT® procedure helps to replenish lost volume and restore youthful definition to the contours of the face. First, a specialized titanium instrument is inserted beneath the skin. It is then carefully and strategically maneuvered through the facial region to provide an instant internal lift for the underlying facial tissues (muscles, fascia, and fat). Hyaluronic acid fillers are used to maintain the lifted appearance, and the titanium tube is removed.

The entire procedure lasts only 30 minutes and requires only local anesthesia. Patients should refrain from exercising for one week afterward but can resume most normal activities on the same day of their procedure. Minor swelling and bruising may temporarily occur during the first few days following the Y LIFT® procedure.


Dr. Bitter has been an innovator of anti-aging treatments for many years. Always passionate about his work, he prefers to use only revolutionary techniques that are proven to produce the best results. For this reason, Dr. Bitter was personally trained by Y LIFT® developer Dr. Yan Trokel and became a certified Y LIFT® provider. With the Y LIFT®, patients can have instant facial rejuvenation. The procedure accentuates the cheekbones, brightens and lifts the area under the eyes, and redefines the jawline and upper neck. Without any surgery, the Y LIFT® sculpts, accents, and highlights each individual’s natural beauty. Youthful and defined facial results are instantly noticeable and last one to two years.

Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr., the world’s authority on treating the skin with light and developer of the critically acclaimed FotoFacial® treatment, is now offering the Y LIFT® for individuals of all ages. If you are seeking the ideal youthful face shape, Dr. Bitter can perform the Y LIFT® to revitalize your appearance and enhance and beautify your natural features.
