Blepharoplasty, Eyelid Surgery
Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, and Dr. Benjamin C. Stong invite anyone who wants more youthful, vibrant eyes to come see us for blepharoplasty. We have been transforming the appearance of faces from Sandy Springs and all over the Atlanta area for many years, including enhancing the beauty of their eyes. Eyelid lift surgery can give your face a new look, erasing years from your appearance or removing bags that make you look sad or tired.
There are hundreds of different plastic surgery procedures that can be performed on the face, but one of the most popular groups is under the blepharoplasty category. The eyes are often the most prominent feature on the face, giving them the power to change your appearance. When the skin around the eyes begins to droop, it causes wrinkles, lines and bags that can make you appear older. Under the skin, fat and muscle can move and create bags that give a sunken or tired appearance. Blepharoplasty procedures address these issues, opening the eyes, smoothing lines and removing bags for improved beauty and youthfulness.
Blepharoplasty procedures can have a dramatic effect on the overall appearance of your face, removing issues that make you look tired, sad or older. Recovery depends on the extent of the procedure, but most eyelid surgeries have limited downtime and a quick healing process. Dr. Stong uses minute incisions that are carefully placed to hide scars once they heal; most sutures are removed in a few days and swelling dissipates over the next several days. However, the incredible transformation that can occur makes this procedure worth the downtime for most patients, with results that can last for many years to come.
Eye Lift Surgery for Men and Women
Anyone who has excess skin or fat around their eyes that is affecting their appearance can benefit from blepharoplasty. Eye lift surgery can involve the upper or lower lid. A complete eye lift may include surgery on both lids. It is not just women who seek eyelid lifts; more and more, men also want to look younger and more energetic for personal and professional reasons.
Blepharoplasty is often used to combat the signs of aging. The eyes are one of the first places to begin showing the effects of aging on the skin, muscles and fat composition in the face. However, not everyone who receives eyelid surgery is older. Many men and women in their twenties, thirties or forties have undergone blepharoplasty to remove puffy bags under their eyes that make them look sad or tired. Eyelid surgery is not age or gender specific but can be used to open eyes and improve the beauty of this prominent area on the face.
Dr. Stong uses several different surgeries under the blepharoplasty label to transform the eyes. Using the latest techniques, he can remove excess skin from either the upper or lower eyelids for a more youthful appearance. Most lower eyelid lifts have incisions under the lower lash line or inside the pink portion of the lower lid, hiding any trace of surgery. Upper eye lifts can be performed through small incisions that are hidden in the crease of the lid.
Since each patient is different, so are the procedures that Dr. Stong uses to give them the results they desire from their blepharoplasty. Minor changes to the skin or fat composition around the eye are often used for younger patients, while deeper changes to the muscle and fat position are needed for more dramatic results. Each surgery is tailored to the patient, using the extensive expertise that Dr. Stong offers.
