Blepharoplasty, Eyelid Surgery

Do you have bags under your eyes that make you look tired, sad and years older than you feel? Has the skin begun to sag or wrinkle around your eyes, adding years to your appearance? Blepharoplasty is a viable surgical option to improve the skin, muscle and fat balance around your eyes for a more rested, youthful appearance. Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, offers eyelid surgery with proven results for our patients in Decatur and throughout the Atlanta area.

Our mission at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery is to offer our patients the most innovative options for improving their appearance and health. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is one of our most popular cosmetic procedures, giving our patients of all ages and genders more attractive eyes. Dr. Benjamin Stong is a talented, experienced, dual board certified facial plastic surgeon. His artistic eye for detail combined with extensive training, education and experience make him an excellent choice for any cosmetic surgery. When it comes to eyelid surgery, you want only the best and Dr. Ben Stong is considered one of the top facial plastic surgeons in the country.

Eyelid surgeries vary depending on the patient and the desired result. Both lids can be altered, either separately or together. While many of our patients that undergo blepharoplasty are seeking to reduce signs of aging around the eye, we also see younger patients. Those with puffy eyes or eye bags that won’t dissipate through other treatments may desire a skin pinch under the eye to reduce excess skin or a transconjunctival blepharoplasty (removing excess fat through the inner eyelid).

Choosing to Undergo Eyelid Surgery

Any cosmetic surgery is a big decision, especially when you are considering changing a prominent feature like the eyes. Our patients considering blepharoplasty usually have many questions, which our staff and Dr. Stong are happy to answer. Some of the more common questions include:

  • Will the scar from my surgery be noticeable? Dr. Stong uses very precise and tiny incisions in both lower and upper eyelid surgeries. In upper lid surgeries, the incision is usually in the crease of the lid; in lower eyelid surgeries, it is under the lower lash line. It is almost impossible to see a scar after the eyes heal.
  • What is the best option to make eyes look younger? Many of our patients that have sagging and lines around the eyes can benefit from both an upper and lower eyelift. This removes excess skin and muscle to refresh the eyes to a more youthful appearance. Fat transposition from the lower eyelid can also be used to soften lines and plump the skin around the eyes.
  • How long will it take to recover after the surgery? The techniques Dr. Stong uses improve the healing for our patients and reduce the downtime after surgery. Sutures are usually removed in about five days and patients see lessened bruising after about a week. Most people can return to work or their normal routine in about five to seven days, with improved appearance as they near the 14-day mark. But recovery depends on the individual and the type of surgery we perform.

Eyelid lifts and other blepharoplasty options can make a dramatic improvement in your overall appearance. You can look younger, more rested and even happier. A small change in the skin and tissue around the eye can do wonders. If you live in Decatur and have been considering a change to reduce bags, lines or sagging skin around the eyes, contact Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC today for a consultation. Life is too short to live it looking sad or tired when a small surgery can improve your appearance.

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
