Lower Lid: SOOF Lift Blepharoplasty with Dr. Sean Freeman

Surgical rejuvenation of the lower lid was a problem in need of a good solution for many years. Dr. Sean Freeman developed the Lower Lid:  SOOF Lift Blepharoplasty as an effective treatment for this area.

SOOF Lift is “The Gold Standard” for lower lid blepharoplasty. The procedure is more effective, longer-lasting, and has fewer risks than the old way of doing lower lid surgeries.

Dr. Freeman’s early adoption of minimal facial aesthetic surgery, and innovative surgical techniques, along with his years of experience have made him a sought-after teacher and lecturer to his peers, all over the world. He introduced the “Transconjunctival Lower Lid Blepharoplasty with SOOF,” which described a new technique for improving the results of lower eyelid surgery, in 2020. 

Trust the Facial Plastic Surgeon that other doctors go to for training:

  • Dr. Freeman teaches his techniques to other doctors.
  • He has performed Deep Plane Face Lifts for over 15 years.
  • He created and teaches the Lower Lid/SOOF Lift Blepharoplasty.
  • He also created and teaches a Segmental Endoscopic Brow Lift.

Patients fly in from all over the United States, and as far as England and all around the world to experience his excellent surgical results.  His procedure, the SOOF Lift blepharoplasty, lifts the SOOF, which stands for suborbicularis oculi fat. By lifting this, he is able to correct the hollowness underneath the lower lid, which is due to the inferior migration of the SOOF that occurs as we age. During the Lower Lid:  SOOF Lift Blepharoplasty procedure, he is also able to tighten a layer of tissue known as the orbital septum and push the bulging orbital fat back to where it was when the patient was young.  The combination of lifting the SOOF and correcting the bulging orbital fat restores the youthful anatomy of the lower lid all via a hidden incision inside the eyelid. The Lower Lid:  SOOF Lift Blepharoplasty is safe, effective, and long-lasting.

    Other Surgical Techniques

    Many physicians in the facial plastic surgery world operate on the lower lid using approaches that do not work as well as the Lower Lid Rejuvenation/SOOF Lift Blepharoplasty. Many use an open approach, with an incision beneath the eyelashes of the lower lid (known as a subciliary incision). They lift the skin and muscle of the lower lid, and remove fat from each of the 3 compartments underneath and behind the orbit. The problem with this approach is that we don’t grow fat in the lower lid as we age. The fat simply protrudes because of the relaxation of a fascia layer that holds the fat in check when we are younger.

    Removing this fat simply takes a bulging lower lid and makes it look hollow. Neither of these looks is pleasing. The other important point that this procedure ignores is the hollowness that occurs under the puffy area, commonly known as the tear trough.

    Fat Herniation

    Some surgeons will take fat from either the lower lids (which creates hollowness) or other areas of the body and try to “graft” this area to fill it in. While this may occasionally help, it is prone to failure due to clumping, resorption, or migration of the fat, among other http://concerns.in addition, using an open approach puts pressure on the support structure of the lower lid and can lead to a change in lower eyelid position, known as scleral show or frank ectropion (the lower lid is pulled away from the orbit). Dr. Freeman does find a subciliary incision to be necessary in the rare patient, and if you are in that category he will discuss this approach during your office consultation.|

    Dr. Freeman’s SOOF Technique

    At his Charlotte practice, Dr. Freeman performs blepharoplasty for the lower lids using an incision inside the eyelid, known as a transconjunctival incision, for the vast majority of his patients. He has devised a way to tighten the structure that contains the protruding orbital fat, returning this area of the eye to its smooth, youthful position and appearance. That means improving puffiness without causing a hollow appearance. He lifts the mid-face fat that used to be under the lower lid, called the “SOOF”. This corrects the hollow appearance under the eye.

    Results from this approach look very natural because the surgery puts the lower eyelid anatomy back to its youthful position.
