Decatur Facelift Surgery

Choosing to undergo facelift surgery is a major decision. You want a plastic surgeon that has the skill and experience to ensure you get the results you desire. Dr. Benjamin Stong at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC has the background and proven results that you can trust to give you a more youthful appearance that looks natural. If you live in Decatur or anywhere in the greater Atlanta area, we are your source for excellence in cosmetic surgery.

Facelifts involve moving the skin and tissue on the facial structure to reverse the effects of aging. As skin loses its elasticity, it can begin to sag and droop. Deep lines can appear around the nose and mouth while bags appear under the eyes as cheeks droop. A basic facelift elevates the midface tissue to a more youthful position. However, not all facelift procedures are the same, nor is the expertise of the surgeon performing them.

Dr. Ben Stong is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon with Fellowship training that has earned a stellar reputation as a top surgeon in the field of facelift surgery. His credentials and experience in the latest techniques of modern facelifts are combined with a natural artistic talent to get the best results for our patients. Not all surgeons are capable of performing the specialized techniques that Dr. Stong uses to give his facelift patients natural, lasting results with less scarring and a quicker recovery time.

Advanced Deep Plane Facelift

The traditional facelift is performed by shifting the skin to a higher position. This method can leave the patient looking like their skin was tightened or stretched; it can also fail quickly. Deep plane techniques are more advanced, involving the Subcutaneous Musculo-Aponeurotic System, or SMAS. This tissue underneath the skin also sags with time. Repositioning both the SMAS and the skin offers better results that can last for many years.

The composite rhytidectomy, or deep plane facelift, that Dr. Stong performs uses smaller incisions that leave smaller scars. The technique he uses also allows for less downtime after the procedure for a faster recovery. The composite procedure gives a more complete facelift, including moving the upper cheeks into a higher position to restore a youthful, energetic appearance.

Dr. Stong takes the time to discuss expectations and desired results with every patient to ensure that a facelift is the right procedure for them. While a facelift can erase years from the appearance of your face, it may not address all issues. Often a rhytidectomy is combined with other cosmetic procedures like a brow or eyelid lift to create a full facelift. Each procedure is tailored to the patient’s unique circumstances and desired results to meet their expectations.

Natural, Beautiful Facelift Results

One of the biggest fears of our patients when they consider a facelift procedure is looking “overdone” after the surgery. Most patients want to look more youthful without the tell-tale signs that they had plastic surgery. The advanced techniques that Dr. Stong uses help maintain a natural, soft appearance while still addressing the effects of aging. Our patients look years younger, and those who meet them for the first time would never guess they had “work done”; they just look more like they did a decade or more before.

In the field of facelift surgery, natural results that last are the benchmark to achieve. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, we have testimonials and examples of our success in this field to give you confidence that you have chosen the right plastic surgeon. Dr. Stong’s exceptional credentials, experience and proven results have allowed him to gain a reputation as one of the best facelift surgeons in the country.

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
