With most blepharoplasty procedures, facial plastic surgeons make an incision beneath the lower lid lashes and then lift the muscle and skin of the lower lid. They will then remove fat from the three compartments located behind and under the orbit often leaving the area looking hollow.
Instead of removing the fat from the orbit area, when Dr. Freeman performs SOOF lift blepharoplasty he makes a very small incision inside the lower eyelid and then tightens the entire structure so that it is able to contain the orbital fat. He also lifts the mid-face fat or the SOOF, drastically improving the entire lower lid area, returning the smooth, youthful look to the lower lid area.
During the initial consultation appointment, Dr. Freeman evaluates the facial skin and bone structure and will recommend the best course of treatment for the patient’s individual situation. Dr. Freeman never wants any of his patients to have a “plastic” or artificial appearance following surgery. Dr. Freeman always strives to provide a natural, more youthful appearance for his patients.
Dr. Freeman is considered one of the best facial plastic surgeons in the entire Southeast United States. He performs all facial plastic surgeries at his state-of-the-art operating suite at his Charlotte NC clinic, The Center for Facial and Plastic Laser Surgery. When you are considering SOOF lift blepharoplasty to improve the appearance of your eyes, call Dr. Freeman for a consultation appointment.
