Blepharoplasty, Eyelid Surgery

When your eyes make you look tired or show signs of age, surgery can be the best option to give you a new look. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, is used by men and women of all ages to change the appearance of the eyes by removing eye bags, reducing wrinkles and tightening the skin around the eye. If you are tired of looking tired or want to reverse the hands of time, an eye lift may be exactly what you need.

At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, we have performed many eyelid lift surgeries for our patients from Roswell and throughout the greater Atlanta metro area. Our dual board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Benjamin Stong, brings a great amount of expertise and experience to our patients seeking to improve their appearance. Using the most advanced techniques and his own artistic talent, Dr. Stong has given our patients excellent results that look natural. Whether you are considering a complete facelift or just want to focus on the appearance of the eyes with blepharoplasty, Dr. Stong is the best choice for facial plastic surgery in the Atlanta area.

The eyes are one of the first places to see the ravages of time. The delicate skin can begin to wrinkle and sag from extensive use over the years. Fat and muscle can also droop, causing bags under the eyes that make the face look tired and older. Even younger people can have excess fat or skin under the eyes that make them look sad or continually exhausted. Blepharoplasty is a set of different surgical procedures that can correct these issues around the eyes for a more youthful, happy and energetic appearance.

Which Blepharoplasty Procedure is Right for You?

The blepharoplasty procedure you choose depends on your specific issues and the results you want Dr. Stong to achieve. Your age, genetic factors and lifestyle choices can all affect the skin, muscle and fat accumulation around the eyes. For some, only the skin is sagging or drooping. For others, the skin is still smooth, but puffiness or bags under the eye make them look tired. Others only have excess skin on the upper lid, hooding their eyes.

For our younger patients that may not need a complete eye lift, Dr. Stong uses a few different techniques to address eyelid skin or fat issues. A “skin pinch” technique can remove small amounts of excess skin under the eye with a minor incision. Transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty is also used for younger patients, removing fat through a tiny incision inside the pink or transconjunctival inner lower lid. These can be used separately or together, depending on the patient and the results they want to achieve.

Patients that want to achieve more youthful eyes may need a complete eyelid lift of the lower, upper or both lids. Upper eyelid lifts remove excess skin that has drooped over the eye through a tiny incision placed in the crease on the upper lid. Lower eye lifts can remove excess skin, muscle and fat that create deep bags and wrinkles while tightening and repositioning tissue for a more youthful appearance. Dr. Stong often recommends a fat transposition that moves fat from under the lower lid to the corner of the eye, smoothing the surface for a more natural appearance.

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
