Blepharoplasty, Eyelid Surgery
Imagine your eyes looking more youthful, with reduced bags, lines or puffiness. Blepharoplasty is a popular cosmetic surgery to improve the appearance of the eyelids, helping reduce the signs of aging and other factors around the eyes. Dr. Benjamin Stong and our team at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, are experienced in eyelid surgery techniques that can transform the appearance of your eyes. We are your local source for excellence in facial plastic surgery in the Dunwoody and greater Atlanta area.
The skin and tissue around the eyes can have a dramatic effect on your overall appearance. When the muscles, skin and fat pads under the lower eyelid sag, it can create bags that make you appear older, tired and even upset. The skin on the upper lid can also sag, making you look exhausted even when you feel energetic. Blepharoplasty can surgically alter the skin, fat and muscle tissue that causes eye bags, lines and a tired countenance, giving your eyes a more youthful and well-rested appearance.

Eyelid Surgery Options
Blepharoplasty is not one type of surgery, but a collection of different surgeries that can be completed in the upper and lower eyelids. It is often used to combat the signs of aging, but it is not limited to only older patients. Younger patients that are unhappy with puffy eyes or bags that make them look tired can also receive minor eyelid surgery. Dr. Stong uses a skin pinch technique to remove excess skin under the eye for younger patients, or a removal of fat under the eyelid to reduce bags and puffiness.
Older patients that are struggling with aging progression around the eyes can often have the most significant results from eyelid surgery. Upper eyelid lifts can remove the excess skin that can make eyes sag or look tired. The small incision can be placed in the crease on the upper lid, hiding it from view. Lower eyelid lifts can have a large improvement for those with large bags or lines under the eyes. The minuscule incision under the lashes on the lower lid is almost impossible to see when it heals but gives Dr. Stong access to the skin, muscles and fat pads under the eye. He can reduce the excess muscle tissue and skin while changing the position of the fat to create a more youthful appearance.
Eyelid surgeries are one of the most common procedures we do at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery due to the dramatic results we achieve for our patients. In as little as two weeks, you can have younger, more rested eyes that will improve the overall appearance of your face. In most cases, blepharoplasty only takes about one to two hours to complete. It is often done in our office under local anesthesia. Most people can return to their normal routine or work within a week, with an accelerated recovery time.
