Marietta Facelift Surgery

What is your perception of a successful facelift surgery? If you equate natural, long-lasting improvements that make you look years younger with the results you desire from a facelift, you are not alone. Unfortunately, not all facelift surgeries obtain these results. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, our experienced surgeon, Dr. Benjamin Stong, has a stellar reputation for achieving outstanding results for our patients undergoing facelift surgery in the Marietta and Atlanta area.

Rhytidectomy, or facelift surgery, has evolved over the years, but not all surgeons are trained or experienced in the latest advances in this complicated procedure. Dr. Ben Stong has extensive experience in using the most advanced techniques to create soft, natural results for our patients that do not look overdone or “fake.” In addition, these precise methods can shorten recovery time and hide scarring for an improved overall experience.

Traditional facelifts lifted the skin upward to combat the sagging skin that occurs with age. While this can give patients a more youthful appearance initially, it does not address the other tissue under the skin that also can drop lower and droop. Advanced surgical techniques in the facelift field shift not only the skin but the underlying tissue to an elevated position that reveals a more youthful appearance. These deep plane techniques are a specialty of Dr. Stong, one of the few surgeons in the country to perfect this advanced procedure and other techniques that offer the best results for facelift surgeries.

Benefits of Composite Rhytidectomies

Composite rhytidectomy, or deep plane facelifts, utilize exacting methods to carefully move the Subcutaneous Musculo-Aponeurotic System (SMAS) and the skin to a higher, more youthful position on the face. Using minute incisions, the tissue and skin are elevated higher in the midface region. This involves the areas around the mouth, nose and upper cheeks. The SMAS and skin stay connected as they are shifted, which results in a more natural final appearance.

Deep plane facelifts offer several benefits over the traditional facelift that only addresses the skin. The results look more natural, not “overdone” like traditional facelifts that can look artificial. Also, the results last much longer; some traditional facelifts can revert quickly since only the skin was moved, not the tissue underneath. Other benefits are smaller incisions for less scarring and a quicker recovery time for the patient. All around, the deep plane facelift we offer at Kalos offers better results for our 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
