Blepharoplasty, Eyelid Surgery

It has been said that the eyes are the windows to the soul; they are also a good indication of your age and mood. One of the first places on your face to change due to age is the delicate skin and tissue around the eye. Your eyes also show joy, sadness, anger and tiredness. When excess skin or fat begin making you look older, tired or sad, blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can improve the appearance of your eyes and face.

At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, our experienced facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Benjamin Stong, offers expertise and experience when it comes to blepharoplasty and other intricate cosmetic procedures for our patients from Alpharetta. Using advanced techniques, he can improve the appearance of the eye area through upper or lower eyelid surgery. Using precise methods, he can help remove bags under the eye, droopy upper lids and saggy skin to give the eyes a more energetic, youthful appearance.

Dr. Ben Stong uses precise methods to reduce scarring. The tiny incisions in inconspicuous spots make it almost impossible to see any evidence of surgery. Also, due to the less invasive techniques used by Dr. Stong, most blepharoplasty patients can have their procedure performed in our office under local anesthesia. Our patients have little downtime and recover quickly from our eyelid surgeries, with excellent results.

Types of Eyelid Surgeries

Blepharoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries due to the profound impact it can have on your appearance. There are many options available when it comes to changing the appearance of the eyelids. Whether you want to remove excess skin or fat deposits under the eye to reduce the appearance of bags or tired eyes or want to remove excess skin on the upper lid for a more open, youthful eye, blepharoplasty can be a solution. Different techniques and procedures all fall under eyelid surgeries we perform, including these options:

  • Lower eyelid lift. Incisions inserted under the lower lash line are used to remove excess skin and muscle tissue that can cause bags under the eyes. Dr. Stong carefully adjusts the tissue and fat to create a youthful eye without the deep bags.
  • Upper eyelid lift. Minimal incisions in the crease of the upper eyelid can be used to remove excess skin, rejuvenating the eye for a youthful, energetic appearance.
  • Fat transposition. Dr. Stong uses fat transposition from the lower lid in many of his eyelid surgeries to smooth lines or reduce a sunken look. Moving excess fat from under the lower lid to the corners can create a smooth transition from the eye to the cheek.
  • Skin pinch and transconjunctival blepharoplasty. In younger patients that only need excess skin or fat removed without change to the muscles under the eye, Dr. Stong can use a skin pinch or transconjunctival blepharoplasty. Often these are used together to reduce bags under the eyes in younger patients.
  • Skin/muscle flap lower blepharoplasty. One of the most popular surgeries for the lower eyelid is removing the excess skin and muscle while adjusting the fat pads under the eye. This can reduce lines, wrinkles and bags under the eyes for a more youthful appearance.

Blepharoplasty surgeries for the upper and lower eyelids can be used separately or together. Dr. Stong often combines fat transposition with many of his surgeries to create a softer, more natural appearance to the eye without the need for dermal fillers.

Dr Stong is the ONLY Plastic Surgeon you should see, if you want the look that you have always dreamed of. I came to Dr Stong highly dissatisfied from a previous Rhinoplasty, and I was in need of a revision surgery to enhance my facial structure. From the first day I met Dr Stong he LISTENED to what I wanted and helped to design the perfect nose for me. His kind clinical team walked me through every step leading up to my surgery. The surgery and recovery went easy and I was back to my normal activities after a few weeks. It has only been a few months but I look and feel amazing. I get compliments all the time!!!! People stop me on the street to comment on how wonderful I look, and I am not ashamed to say that it's all because of Dr Stong. Dr stong didn't just enhance my looks-he changed my LIFE. Please call his office for an appointment today. You won't regret it!

I was very nervous at the thought of rhinoplasty. So nervous that it took me over 20 years to finally go through with it. When I finally decided to undergo the procedure I wanted the best doctor for this job. I am so glad I found Dr. Stong. His specialty is facial surgery and Dr.Stong is up to date on the latest surgery techniques. He and his staff are kind and genuinely concerned. My calls are always answered by one of his staff and Dr. Stong is seeing me regularly for months to come to ensure that I am healing as expected. My nose looks very natural and I couldn't be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Stong to anyone that is considering facial surgery.

I went today to get non-surgical rhinoplasty. Dr. stong did a great job. I also had a consultation about a surgical rhinoplasty, he showed me how it would look like the before and after and I plan on getting it done by him when the juvederm in my nose is gone completely. The moment you walk in everyone is very nice and welcoming. I've been to other places for lip injections but I think Kalos is going to be my go to from now on.

Dr. Stong delivered exactly what I was looking for with my blepharoplasty. The results were suttle yet significant. People no longer ask me if I'm tired. Mission accomplished.

I was really nervous even considering cosmetic surgery, but it had been becoming increasingly obvious that my youthful glow had dimmed. All the typical bad decisions we make in our youth, sunbathing without sunscreen and years of smoking had taken its toll. I was lucky to find Dr. Stong. He was referred to me by my Dermatopathologist Dr. Dirk Robertson. Dr Stong is a no nonsense type physician who gave me so much of his time from my first visit to my last. On March 16th I had a facelift and upper blepharoplasty. I love it! I’m still healing but the changes so far have been amazing. Dr. Stong was very clear and honest on what to expect in every phase of my surgery. Love his staff, they were super friendly, reassuring when I was nervous, and supportive throughout. Will return only to him for future procedures and will continue to recommend him to my friends and family.

I had been looking for a plastic surgeon to have a facelift and blepharoplasty. The office and staff were excellent! I am thrilled with the results. Dr. Stong is a kind and compassionate doctor and skilled surgeon. I would recommend him to any of my friends or family!

I met Dr Stong when I had to have my basal cell reconstruction on the tip of my nose. He and his caring staff were there every step of the way. I then decided to have a facelift and once again had a wonderful experience! He is well trained in both areas. I would definitely recommend him! Judith Hoffman
