1 | Y Would You Do It Any Other Way? Plastic Surgery Myths
Procedure: Y LIFT
Nicknamed the miracle 30-minute facelift and the lunchtime facelift, the Y LIFT targets areas of lost volume in the face and encourages the growth of collagen. “The Y LIFT is a non-surgical, closed facelift utilizing injectable fillers that restructure the bony pillars of the face,” explains Dr. Grover. In less than an hour—and with only a local anesthetic—the Y LIFT replenishes lost facial volume, firms and smooths skin and defines the jawline, providing a more youthful look.

Procedure: Ultherapy, Profound RF, Vivace RF
Non-invasive procedures to lift and tighten sagging skin include Ultherapy, Profound RF and Vivace RF. With only a single 60- or 90-minute treatment, Ultherapy delivers ultrasound energy that triggers a response to generate new collagen. Profound RF and Vivace RF combine microneedling with radiofrequency to create new elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. According to Dr. Grover, these procedures also improve the skin’s texture and minimize the appearance of fine lines.
3 | Dr. Grover Knows Noses Plastic Surgery Myths
Procedure: Non-surgical Rhinoplasty
In a procedure that takes only about 15 minutes, Dr. Grover can contour a crooked nose, one with bumps or indentations or a bulbous nasal tip, all with the use of dermal fillers. “Not everybody needs to have surgical rhinoplasty,” according to Dr. Grover. “You can camouflage the appearance of irregularities of the nose,” including its length, width, bridge, tip or nostrils. Results can potentially last a year.
Procedure: Renuvion J-Plasma
The Renuvion J-Plasma skin-tightening treatment uses helium gas and radiofrequency energy to make the skin contract while stimulating the production of collagen. This treatment is frequently performed concurrently with liposuction. Skin in the face, neck and body is instantly and noticeably tighter, and lines and wrinkles are minimized. It can be used all over the body to improve the skin’s laxity. According to Dr. Grover, “Improvement is seen right away, but the changes continue on for six to nine months.”
Flaccid muscles, loose skin and fat due to aging can wreak havoc on the appearance of your neck, but don’t fret! Those with sagging turkey necks are in luck. “Not all neck rejuvenation needs to be done surgically,” says Dr. Grover. “You can actually have improvement in the neck with different modalities.” These include ultrasound and microneedling therapies, dermal fillers (and other injections), cryolipolysis, suture suspension and more.
