Dr. Sean Freeman, who specializes in the deep plane facelift in Charlotte, is one of only a few plastic surgeons nationally to perform this method. He also pioneered a new approach to lower-eyelid surgery.
Charlotte, North Carolina (April 2012) – Dr. Sean Freeman offers his patients a special kind of face lift surgery in Charlotte. He specializes in the innovative, state-of-the-art deep plane technique.
“Deep plane facelifts lift the tissues beneath the superficial muscles of the face to rejuvenate the face without having that pulled or operated look,” Dr. Freeman says. “Other techniques aren’t as effective at addressing the mid-face. During surgery, I target deeps tissues to create more natural-looking results.”
Deep-plane techniques help to minimize a “pulled” or “skeletal” look, which is sometimes difficult to avoid with traditional methods, he says.
“To really understand how deep plane facelifts differ, I recommend comparing before-and-after photos of my facelift patients in Charlotte,” Dr. Freeman says. “One significant difference people will see is the increase in cheek volume that isn’t possible with traditional methods. Results are long-lasting, so patients can enjoy their more youthful appearances for years to come.”
Dr. Freeman also has developed a revolutionary approach to lower-eyelid surgery known as a transconjunctival SOOF lift. This method is used on the lower eyelid, where incision positioning can hide noticeable signs of surgery. It lifts the mid-face toward the lower lids to reduce under-eye hollows that typically accompany aging.
“My approach to eyelid surgery greatly reduces the risk of altering the position of the lower lid,” Dr. Freeman says. “This is an excellent way for patients to address signs of aging without changing the shape of their eyelids.”
Patients who come to Dr. Freeman’s practice in Charlotte for facelift surgery often combine the procedure with complementary, non-surgical treatments for a more complete look. During a pre-surgery consultation, Dr. Freeman works with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that will achieve the best individualized results.
“Facelift surgery is extremely effective when we combine procedures to address signs of aging on both the upper and the lower portion of the face,” Dr. Freeman says. “I customize each treatment to meet a patient’s specific needs and used the most advanced techniques to ensure long-lasting results.”
