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.

Dr. Benjamin Stong is a talented facial plastic surgeon with many years of experience, education and training in the field. His credentials include a dual board certification, making him one of the top facial plastic surgeons in the country. Beyond his extensive and impressive history in the field, the proof of his ability is documented through the results he has achieved for our patients. Our patients are ecstatic with their surgical transformations, which are evident in our reviews and photo gallery. These include many stunning before and after photos of our patients who have received blepharoplasty from Dr. Stong with excellent results.

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.

If you live in Dunwoody and have been wishing for a renewed appearance for your eyes, contact our office in Atlanta to schedule your consultation with Dr. Ben Stong. He can discuss the options available with blepharoplasty and answer any questions you may have. You deserve to look as beautiful and young as you feel.

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
