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.

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
