Surgery for bags and circles under the eyes Charlotte

SOOF lift is surgery for bags and circles under the eyes

If you’re considering surgery for bags and circles under the eyes, you may be in need of a SOOF lift blepharoplasty. This is a form of surgery on the lower eyelids that’s much more effective at making you look younger than the older approach, which was to remove the deposit of fat right under the eyelid (the suborbicularis oculi fat, or SOOF) completely. This lump of fat is held in place by the fascial layer of the eyelid, a little net of connective tissue. As you age, the fascial layer weakens and the SOOF sinks, creating those bags and circles under the eyes. Removing it or replacing it doesn’t quite recapture the appearance of youth.


When performing a SOOF llift, 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 a natually young look back to your eyes. A SOOF lift blepharoplasty makes the lower eyelids and the whole middle of the face look younger.


Naturally, you’ll want somebody with very skilled hands performing any form of surgery on your eyelids. Look for the surgeon in Charlotte NC with the most experience at the SOOF lift.
