Our Founder's Story
Dr. Yan Trokel (or simply Dr. Yan as he is commonly referred to), a world-renowned New York based board-certified maxillofacial surgeon specializing in non-surgical facial rejuvenation has been transforming faces since 2006. His accomplishments have been celebrated on popular television programs and in many top news publications spanning almost two decades.
Dr. Yan’s unique innovation have earned him patents including for his signature Y LIFT® procedure, dubbed the “Miracle 30-Minute Facelift" by Dr. Oz; Mycrosculpt®, a cannula grip device for injection techniques; and Flexyguide® - a mapping tool guide for injection techniques.
Recognized as one of the finest aesthetic facial surgeons in the field, Dr. Yan’s unique methodology and expertise in facial rejuvenation revolutionized facial aesthetics.
Dr. Yan’s perspective on what constitutes beauty and the aging effect is based on sound anatomical principles. From his years as a facial surgeon and performing countless facelifts, he emphasized the importance of bone structure and its effects on remaining layers of the face. He developed his signature Y LIFT® Procedure (Closed Facelift®) as an alternative to the procedures he saw as outdated and/or unnecessary. Simply cutting skin and pulling it tighter did not beautify his patients and achieve youthful structure. The Y LIFT® addresses the key points of lost structure by building back at the very foundation via the Structural Volumizing® methodology. Coupled with precise mapping of the face utilizing his patented marking guide and precise lifting and filling methods of Y LIFT® - youthful, beautiful and natural looking results are achieved for patients of all ages.
With the innovation of Y LIFT®, Dr. Yan disrupted industry norms and spearheaded the transformative approach to non-surgical facial rejuvenation. In its annual Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Databank Statistics of 2020, the Aesthetic Society has officially recognized the Y LIFT® procedure as its own category in non-surgical procedures performed by plastic surgeons nationwide.
Dr. Yan is also the Founder and President of the Y LIFT Network – an ever-growing network of medical professionals trained and certified in the Y LIFT® procedure. He and his faculty have taught many medical professionals around the country in the Y LIFT methodology. Y LIFT® is now available at select clinics throughout the country.
