Blepharoplasty, Eyelid Surgery

Improving the beauty and youthfulness of the eyes can have a dramatic effect on your overall appearance. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is one of the most sought after plastic surgery options for both men and women. Adjusting the skin, muscles and fat in both the upper and lower lids can reduce aging, remove under-eye bags and smooth the skin. If you want to rejuvenate the appearance of your eyes and you live in Brookhaven, Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, is your source for excellence in blepharoplasty.

Dr. Benjamin Stong is our experienced, talented facial plastic surgeon, with extensive credentials including a dual board certification. His medical expertise and training combined with his artistic talent for cosmetic surgery allow him to obtain spectacular results for our patients seeking eyelid surgery and other cosmetic enhancements. In blepharoplasty, Dr. Stong uses the latest techniques and advanced methods to create a natural, youthful appearance for our patients.

Blepharoplasty comes in many forms – it can involve the upper or lower eyelid. For younger patients that only have excess skin or fat causing bulges or bags under the eye, it can be a quick way to make their eyes more energetic. For older patients that have deeper bags under the eyes, or hooded, sagging upper lids, eyelid lifts can remove the excess muscle and skin that make the eyes look older. Simply transferring the fat from under the lower lid to other areas around the eye can smooth lines and improve the natural appearance of the eye. When it comes to eyelid surgery, Dr. Stong offers many variations that can be used separately or together to create beautiful results.

Improving Your Appearance Through Eyelid Surgery

Upper eyelid surgery is one of the simpler options in blepharoplasty. A tiny incision in the upper eyelid hidden in the crease can be used to remove excess skin that can make eyes look droopy or tired. When the delicate skin on the upper eyelid sags, it reduces the openness of the eyes. Upper eyelid surgery can make you look younger and more energetic, even reduce a “sad” appearance.

Lower eyelid surgery is slightly more complicated, but Dr. Stong uses advanced techniques to ensure quality results for our patients. When patients have deep bags under their eyes from sagging skin and muscle, a lower eyelid lift can remove the excess skin and muscle to reduce bags. The fat pads under the skin and tissue can also be adjusted to reduce a sunken look that can make you look tired, older or even ill. A small incision under the lower lash line can be used to access the tissue and make the precise adjustments without leaving a visible scar.

Dr. Stong can use upper or lower eyelid surgeries to improve the appearance of the eyes. He also has various techniques that can soften the eyes and smooth lines. He often suggests a fat transposition, which uses fat from the lower eyelid and transfers it the corners of the eyes or other areas. This fat transfer can plump the skin for a more youthful appearance, smoothing lines and the transition from the eyes to the cheeks. Dr. Stong also uses a skin pinch technique for patients that only need excess skin removed under the eye without the need to remove muscle. Fat removal can also be performed for younger patients with bags or excess fat under the eye.

One of the many benefits of blepharoplasty is that it requires very little downtime and patients recover very quickly from these procedures. Dr. Stong’s expertise in using the smallest incisions can ensure there is virtually no evidence of the surgery beyond your improved appearance. Small incisions also allow for quicker healing.

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
