Blepharoplasty, Eyelid Surgery

When your eyes have bags under them or the skin on the upper lid droops, you may look tired and older. Eye bags can occur at any age due to genetics; sagging skin and muscle around the eye is one of the first signs of aging. These changes in the eye area can affect how you appear to others, both in age and in vigor. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, can alleviate changes around your eyes to give you a more youthful, vibrant appearance.

If you live in Marietta, excellence in facial plastic surgery like blepharoplasty is not far away. Dr. Benjamin Stong of Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, in Atlanta offers several types of eyelid surgeries among his many cosmetic procedures. Dr. Stong is a dual board certified plastic surgeon, with extensive experience and training in his field. His expertise and unique artistic eye for detail ensure that his patients get the best results from their procedures, including blepharoplasty.

Blepharoplasty is a group of different surgeries that can be done to transform the eye area. These include lower eyelid lifts, upper lid lifts, fat transposition and transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty. Each can address a specific issue. Some people may have only one procedure performed, while others may have a combination of two to three different eyelid changes made. These changes are very small and precise, but they can make a large difference in the overall appearance of the face.

Benefits of Eyelid Lift Surgery

For many, eyelid lifts are sought to remove lines, wrinkles and sagging skin that can make the person look older. For others, the benefit lies in reducing a tired look that can accompany deep bags under the eye or drooping skin on the upper eyelid. The shape and appearance of the eye due to sagging skin and muscle can make a person look sad or even angry. Blepharoplasty can have the benefit of removing these issues.

Upper eyelid lifts are a fairly simple surgery and a quick fix for tired eyes. A tiny incision is made in the crease of the upper lid so the scar is hidden. Dr. Stong removes excess skin and closes the incision, tightening the skin on the upper lid. Eyes can look more open, less tired and create a more youthful appearance.

Lower eyelid lifts come in a few forms. For those with only bags or puffiness under the eye, usually younger patients, a transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty lift can be performed. This goes through the inside of the lower eyelid and only removes fat to reduce eye bags. For those with more pronounced sagging skin or muscle, a skin/muscle flap lower blepharoplasty can be performed, moving the skin, muscle and fat from under the eye through an incision under the lower lash line. Fat transposition can be performed in conjunction with other procedures, removing fat from the lower lid and transferring it to the corner of the eye to soften the appearance.

Dr. Stong uses the most advanced techniques and methods to create exceptional results for his blepharoplasty patients. His attention to detail can create a natural appearance without any noticeable scarring or evidence of surgery. Blepharoplasty is one of the most popular facial surgeries requested by our patients due to the incredible results that Dr. Stong has obtained for our past patients.

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
