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.

If you live in Peachtree City and have been considering changing the story your eyes tell the world, come see Dr. Ben Stong at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC. He offers experience, incredible credentials and proven results that you can trust. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.

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
