Blepharoplasty, Eyelid Surgery

Your eyes say quite a bit about you. They can alert people to when you feel tired, sad or angry. They light up when you are happy or excited. However, when they begin to make you look older or tired, even when you feel young and energetic, it may be time for a change. If you live in Johns Creek and wish your eyes reflected a more youthful, rested or happier appearance, consider the benefits of blepharoplasty from Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery in Atlanta.

Eyelid surgery is one of the most frequent procedures we do at Kalos. Dr. Benjamin Stong offers experience and expertise that have provided proven results for our patients that have come to us for blepharoplasty. As a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon, he has the extensive training and experience you want when searching for a qualified cosmetic surgeon. In addition to his education and years of practice in the field, Dr. Stong possesses an artistic talent and advanced techniques to ensure success for your procedure.

Blepharoplasty varies depending on the results you desire. Some of our younger patients complain that they have bags or puffiness under their eyes that make them look constantly tired. This can be remedied by a careful removal of a small pinch of skin under the eye. In some cases, no excess skin is present but fat under the lower eyelid is creating a bag or puffy appearance. Dr. Stong can simply remove a small amount of this fat, giving our patients a smoother lower eyelid and a more rested appearance.

Blepharoplasty for Combatting Aging

While blepharoplasty can be performed on younger patients, it is more popular in our aging patients that notice the evident signs of aging around the eyes. The skin and tissue around the eyes are susceptible to lines, wrinkles and sagging. The skin and tissue under the eye can sag, creating large bags and a sunken look to the eyes. Lines and wrinkles can appear as the skin loses elasticity and fat around the eyes sags. Upper and lower eyelid lifts can offer a pleasant change to the appearance of the eyes, reducing the signs of aging while making the eyes look rested and even happier.

The upper eyelid lift is the simplest of the two procedures, with a minor incision placed right in the crease of the eyelid. Dr. Stong is careful to make any incision as small as possible and in a place that will heal without any noticeable scar. The excess skin on the upper lid can be removed to lift the eye, reducing the tired or sad appearance.

For the lower eyelid lift, Dr. Stong uses the little lines under the lower lashes to make a tiny incision. This gives him access to the skin, muscles and fat under the lower lid. For those with large bags or sagging tissue under the eye, he can remove some skin and muscle tissue while changing the position of the fat layer. Often, he may suggest a fat transposition, which removes accumulated fat under the lower lid and transfers it to the corners of the eyes to smooth lines and improve the natural appearance of the eye.

If you are experiencing sagging on both eyelids, it is possible to have both eyelids lifted, giving you a more energetic and youthful appearance around the entire eye. Dr. Stong can discuss what options will give you the best results for your problem areas and answer any questions you may have about the procedure.

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
