Oh, that tell-tale sign of a sleepless night, those dark circles and puffiness under tired eyes! Magically, some good, restful sleep makes those things disappear, and our friends and family compliment us on our bright eyes and that “rested” look that takes years off anyone’s face. Then, as we age, that puffiness hangs around, and no matter how well we rest, we still don’t look it. And concealer can only do so much!
In the past, people with this problem could have surgery to remove the fat that collects there and refuses to settle out evenly. Easy enough, until doctors (and patients) realized that older adults did not grow fat in that area anymore. Removing the fat left the patient with an empty pocket, leaving behind a hollow or sunken area under the eyes. The true problem was not fat but muscle that had lost its elasticity over the years. Because it did not correct the root problem of the lower eyelid, this procedure carried too many risks.
What does the most experienced facial plastic surgeon in the Southeast do? He invents SOOF Lift Blepharoplasty in Charlotte NC Eyelid surgery. Actually, this is not a lift, it is lower eyelid surgery. SOOF is the nickname of sub orbicularis oculi fat; that stubborn glob of fat making you look tired. The first change in Dr. Freeman’s revolutionary development was making an incision inside the eyelid (before, the incision was right under the eyelashes). But we are letting Dr. Freeman perform this task. At this critical moment, he is like the astronaut floating outside of the International Space Station…. error is not an option. Only two tasks remain. He tightens the skin and muscle surrounding the fat, then he removes the fat (called the SOOF). Now, the fat is gone and the outside of the lid is supported by the tightening on the inside- just like it fit together when you were 20! Developing this procedure has changed the way other facial plastic surgeons approach eyelid surgery. Dr. Freeman’s patients are pleased that the results they want are the results they get, and those results last longer than the traditional eyelid surgery.
The eyes are the windows to your soul. Let others see a young, devilish gleam or a sincere, deep gaze instead of shadow and puffiness. Cosmetic procedures to improve the looks around the eyes are becoming more popular as people realize that results are often better than imagined.
