Eyelid and Brow Lift Surgery FAQs

What is an upper eyelid lift or blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyes. Upper blepharoplasty targets sagging skin that overhangs the upper lid. This procedure involves hidden incisions within the natural creases of the eyelid. During an upper eyelid lift, Dr. Stong removes precise amounts of fat, muscle and loose skin of the upper eyelid to create an overall rejuvenated and natural look.

What is a lower eyelid lift?

Lower blepharoplasty is designed to correct the bags that develop due to excess fat underneath the lower eyelids. The incisions are well concealed just below the lower lash line and within the smile creases of the lower eyes. Just like an upper eyelid lift, Dr. Stong will conservatively remove skin and muscle within the lower eyelids to create a refreshed and youthful appearance. Dr. Stong uses fat transposition techniques when performing lower eyelid blepharoplasty, which restores a natural youthful contour to the lower eyelid and upper cheek junction by eliminating the tear trough deformity, or nasojugal groove.

It is common for patients to choose both upper and lower eyelids lifts at the same time to simplify recovery and to achieve a more symmetrical and even appearance between the upper and lower eyelids.

What is a non-surgical or liquid eye lift?

For patients who want to improve the appearance of their eyes without surgery, a liquid eye lift is an excellent solution. Although it does not offer permanent results, the use of injectables and facial fillers can restore a more youthful and natural appearance around the eyes without the associated risks of surgery. Depending on your specific concerns, Dr. Stong will carefully select a filler to address sagging skin, wrinkles and folds around the eyes that develop with age. A liquid eye lift plumps soft tissues around the eyes to camouflage puffiness of the lower eyelid. This non-surgical procedure treats tear troughs, or nasojugal grooves, as well as the crescent shaped deformity around the junction of the lower eyelid base and upper cheek.

Are eyelid injections or liquid eye lifts bruise free?

Yes, all of our injectable treatments are bruise free at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC. Dr. Stong uses an advanced micro-cannula technique that enables patients to achieve natural and beautiful results with no bruising and minimal swelling. The use of a micro-cannula or blunt-tip cannula, as opposed to a sharp hypodermic needle, dramatically reduces the chances of piercing a blood vessel, which is what causes bruising. This injection technique gives Dr. Stong better accuracy and control while also benefiting the patient in safety and comfort. Dr. Stong is one of very few plastic surgeons in the country who use this bruise free injection technique almost exclusively when offering injection treatments.

What is a brow lift?

A brow lift is a surgical procedure to raise sagging eyebrows. Dr. Stong uses a variety of techniques to accomplish this based on a patient’s unique needs. In general, brow lifts reposition the sagging tissue of the brows to restore them to a more youthful position. A brow lift may or may not involve skin removal. Brow lifts can also address furrowing between the eyebrows and soften an angry expression. In many cases, a blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) is combined with this procedure to improve hooded eyelids or the bags beneath the eyes.

Why are brow lifts performed before a blepharoplasty?

If a patient has a drooping brow and a brow lift is indicated, then the brow lift should be performed prior to a blepharoplasty to prevent lagopthalmos, which is a permanent shortening of the upper eyelid that causes dry eyes and tearing because the eye cannot fully close.

What is Asian eyelid or double eyelid surgery?

Since many Asians do not have a visible fold or crease in the upper eyelids as seen in Caucasian eyelids, the Asian eyelid surgery is a highly sought after procedure in the Asian community. Dr. Stong performs Asian eyelid surgery to recreate a supratarsal crease in the upper eyelids, which enhances the eyes and makes them appear more open and less tired.

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
