Rhinoplasty, Nose Job Surgery

The face is a conglomerate of features that should blend and harmonize with each other. When one feature overshadows the rest due to its size or form, it can detract from the beauty of the face. This is the case with some noses that do not blend well with the other features by which they are surrounded, causing an unbalanced face. Rhinoplasty is the best option to permanently change the appearance of the nose in these cases, offering a harmonious blending of features to enhance the natural attractiveness of the person.

At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, we specialize in rhinoplasty that helps our patients achieve the facial appearance they desire. Dr. Benjamin Stong is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon with extensive expertise in this delicate and complicated field of cosmetic surgery. Creating a new nose that will blend with the other features of the face is artistry, not just a medical procedure. Dr. Stong’s talent lies in both his medical experience and knowledge of the cosmetic surgery field and his eye for artistic detail when transforming our patient’s features.

Open Versus Closed Rhinoplasty

For those that have been considering rhinoplasty in the Dunwoody area, there are two different procedures that are used for this procedure: open and closed. Closed involves making an incision inside the nasal passage to perform the surgery. While this effectively hides the scar, it does not allow for the visualization that is necessary for delicate changes to the tip or shape of the nose. This technique can be used for removing humps or bumps on the bridge of the nose, but for more extensive reshaping of the nose, open rhinoplasty is recommended.

Dr. Stong is experienced at both open and closed rhinoplasty, but since many of his procedures involve a complete reshaping of the nose, the open surgery is more commonly performed for our patients. This involves using a small incision at the base of the nose between the nostrils; while on the exterior of the nose, the placement makes it almost impossible to see any scarring. This technique allows Dr. Stong to complete intricate changes to the nose shape and size. Some of the most common changes requested include:

  • Reducing the overall size of the nose
  • Reducing an overhang or lifting a droopy tip of the nose
  • Removing a hump or bump on the bridge
  • Elevating a flat nose
  • Thinning the base of the nose or reducing the nostrils
  • Fixing a crooked or broken nose

Rhinoplasty can be both cosmetic and functional. Often, issues that are aesthetically unappealing also cause breathing or sinus issues. When feasible, functionality is improved during rhinoplasty. Many people experience better breathing, relief from sinus issues and other functional issues along with the benefits of finally having the nose size and shape they desire.

Choosing the Right Rhinoplasty Surgeon

The nose is a prominent feature of the face, one that can have a dramatic impact on your appearance. While you may want to change the look of your nose, you also want to ensure that the surgeon you choose will give you the results you desire. Dr. Ben Stong has the credentials and experience that you can trust when undergoing such a delicate surgery. His board certification in both otolaryngology head and neck surgery and facial plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery are some good reasons to consider him as your cosmetic surgeon for rhinoplasty. His proven results and commitment to patient care will give you peace of mind that you made the right choice for your rhinoplasty.

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
