Blepharoplasty, Eyelid Surgery
Your eyes tell so much about you. They can relate your emotions – sadness, happiness or anger. Eyes also tell a tale of how old you are or if you have been burning the midnight oil too often. If your eyes are telling a story you want to change due to sagging skin or bags that make you look older and tired, blepharoplasty or eyelid lift surgery can change the storyline.
Eyelid lifts are one of the most popular facial plastic surgeries we perform at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC. Dr. Benjamin Stong, our talented plastic surgeon, has extensive experience creating beautiful results for our patients that want to look more youthful or energetic through blepharoplasty. We serve patients coming from Peachtree City and throughout the Atlanta area that want to improve the appearance of their eyes. Dr. Stong is dual board certified and has a talent for the artistic vision that he utilizes for optimal results, hiding the evidence of surgery while creating a natural appearance. You can have eyes that tell a different story, making you look more youthful and vibrant.
Blepharoplasty is not one surgery, but a category of surgeries that pertain to the eyelids. Not everyone that wants to change their eyelids has the same issues. Some younger patients do not suffer from sagging skin, but still have bags under their eyes that make them look tired or sad. Older patients may have bags, droopy upper lids and wrinkles, requiring a combination of surgeries to give them a more youthful appearance. Dr. Stong is experienced at many different options in blepharoplasty, using the latest techniques to give our patients the results they desire.
Options Available for Eyelid Lift Surgeries
Dr. Ben Stong takes the time to meet with each patient and learn more about what they envision from undergoing any plastic surgery. When it comes to blepharoplasty, there are many options available that can be used to transform this high-profile feature. During his initial consultation, he assesses the eye area and makes his recommendations for surgery. He also listens to his patients and their expectations, finding a solution that will help get them the results they desire.
Each person or patient is different, which is why Dr. Stong customizes his surgeries for the unique needs of each patient. Blepharoplasty can include an upper eyelid lift, lower eyelid lift, fat transposition and other techniques, with variations on each surgery depending on the patient. Some of the procedures Dr. Stong performs for eyelid lifts include:
- Lower eyelid lifts. This is one of the most common options, helping remove excess skin and fat under the eye. For younger patients, a transconjunctival blepharoplasty lift to only remove fat under the eye can be performed. Older patients may need more extensive lifting, removing excess skin and fat while adjusting the position of the fat pads and muscle.
- Upper eyelid lifts. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty does not have as many options but can be transforming. Removing a small amount of skin from the upper lid can open the eyes, reducing a hooded, tired eye.
- Fat transposition. Dr. Stong often uses fat transposition in conjunction with other blepharoplasty procedures. This removes fat from the lower eyelid and places it in the corners of the eye. This smooths the transition from eyes to cheeks for a more natural appearance.
