He was also one of the pioneers of minimal incision techniques and, also in 1996, authored one of the first papers on the subject entitled “The Role of Endoscopy in Facial Plastic Surgery.” Dr. Freeman was the associate editor and contributor to one of the first books published about this new area, entitled “Endoscopic Facial Plastic Surgery,” published by Mosby in 1997. He has authored many other publications on cosmetic lasers and minimal incision techniques.

Dr. Freeman specializes in rhinoplasty and is considered one of the foremost rhinoplasty specialists in the Southeast. His extensive surgical experience in cosmetic facial surgery has resulted in an operative experience that is difficult to match. He considers rhinoplasty to be the most artistic of all the procedures he performs and prides himself on providing naturally beautiful results that blend with the patient’s other facial features.
Dr. Freeman also has more experience than many other facial cosmetic surgeons in Charlotte, NC and the surrounding area when it comes to administering non-surgical treatments. He skillfully treats spider veins, brown spots, unwanted tattoos or fine lines and wrinkles with medical strength lasers. If forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet bother you, Dr. Freeman has years of experience using BOTOX® Cosmetic to help these areas. He has even developed a technique he calls the “BOTOX Browlift” to treat wrinkles in this area as well as lift the lateral brow. If acne scarring is a concern, Dr. Freeman uses liquid silicone by means of a microdrop method to permanently improve these areas right in the office with no down time.
Due to Dr. Freeman’s extensive expertise and experience with soft tissue fillers, he is part of the Medical Education Faculty for BioForm™ Medical. Soft tissue fillers such as Restylane® and RADIESSE® can be used to enhance the shape of lips, improve deep frown lines, and fill-in other soft tissue deficits – right in the office during your first appointment. Using his experience in this area, Dr. Freeman can offer patients an alternative to surgical facelifting. This approach, referred to as the “liquid facelift,” uses injectable fillers to enhance facial appearance without the downtime of surgery.
