Finding a solution for under eye bags and circles
A solution for under eye bags and circles
One solution for under eye bags and circles is a SOOF lift blepharoplasty. Under eye bags and circles are not just a sign of overwork and lack of sleep, but of aging. There is a very small deposit of adipose tissue under your lower eyelids called the suborbicularis oculi fat, or SOOF. This tiny lump of fat is held in place by a layer of connective tissue, the fascial layer. The trouble is that as we grow older, the fascial layer relaxes and the SOOF sinks to the tops of our cheeks. This creates under eye bags and circles, areas of puffy skin that are a mark of increasing age most people may not be consciously aware of.
The old approach is to remove the SOOF deposit entirely. This replaces the puffiness under the eyes with a hollow look that isn’t much better. A better approach is the SOOF life blepharoplasty, developed in Charlotte NC. In this approach, the surgeon makes an incision on the insider of the eyelid, returns the suborbicularis oculi fat to its original place and retightens the fascial layer to hold it there, reversing all the effects of aging on the eyelid in one procedure. This subtle change in the face is much more effective at bringing the young look back to your eyes. A SOOF lift blepharoplasty makes the lower eyelids and the whole middle of the face look younger.
