Soof Lift Blepharoplasty, Segmental Brow Lift, and Deep Plane Facelift using malar pad lift
By: The Center for Facial Plastic and Laser Surgery
Patients who are good candidates for a deep plane minituck have laxity of the midface, perioral area and neck. In particular the neck laxity involves skin and muscle only and is not due to excess storage of fat and/or laxity of the submandibular gland. There are many examples patients like this in the photo section. Dr. Freeman uses this incision to perform a mid-face lift to correct malar pad ptosis; a technique he pioneered and published over fifteen years ago.
Next, the parotidmasseteric fascia is lifted and the ligaments are released to perform a deep plane lift of the line of the jaw, jowl area and the marionette line of the mouth without making patients look pulled or "windblown". Dr. Freeman was the first surgeon to incorporate both of these advanced techniques, he has been using this approach since the late 1990's; these approaches allows rejuvenation to look natural and be long lasting. The neck is then lifted by lifting the lateral border of a fan shaped muscle known as the platysma muscle
The National Academy of Medicine, a nonprofit institution, founded in 1863, is one of three academies that make up the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in the United States. The NAM operates outside of government to provide objective advice on matters of science, technology, and health.
Dr. Freeman's early adoption of minimal incision facial aesthetic surgery and his years of experience have made him a sought-after teacher and lecturer in the United States and overseas. He has authored many chapters in peer-reviewed journals and books in his field. These include book chapters on blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and facelift surgery, along with additional publications on minimal incision techniques.
Patients fly in from all over the United States, and have come from as far away as England and Dubai to experience the excellent results of Dr. Freeman's surgical techniques. HIs facility, The Center for Facial Plastic and Laser Surgery, focuses on Only Faces.
