Blepharoplasty, Eyelid Surgery

The delicate composition of skin, fat and muscle around the eyes can change over the years. Often, it is one of the first places on the face to show aging. Not only can excess skin cause wrinkles and lines, it can make the eyes appear tired or create the illusion of fatigue. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can transform the eye area and achieve a dramatic improvement in the overall appearance of the face.

Dr. Benjamin Stong at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon with extensive education, training and experience in eyelid surgery. Using advanced techniques and a customized approach to eyelid rejuvenation, he can transform tired or aging eyes, giving them a more youthful and vibrant appearance. If you live in Virginia Highlands, our clinic is close by in Atlanta, giving you access to one of the top facial plastic surgeons in the country.

So much is affected by the appearance of the eyes. Drooping skin on the upper or lower lids can make you appear tired, even when you feel youthful and energetic. Bags from puffiness under the eye or sagging tissue can also make you look exhausted as well as older. Blepharoplasty procedures address these issues and revive the eyes for an improved appearance. Our eyelid surgery patients get results that make them look years younger or well rested, without any noticeable scarring or a “fake” appearance.

Advanced Eye Lift Surgeries

The type of blepharoplasty required to achieve the results you desire depends on the issues affecting your eyes. Some people only have sagging skin on their upper lid that needs to be removed to wake up the appearance of their eyes. Dr. Stong can achieve this result with a tiny incision along the crease in the upper eyelid, removing excess skin to reduce a hooded look that can make the eyes look older or tired.

Lower eye lifts can address several different issues, with various options in this procedure. Younger patients that do not have sagging muscle or tissue may not need the deeper skin/muscle flap lower blepharoplasty that is popular among older patients. If only a small amount of skin needs to be removed, Dr. Stong can use his precise “skin pinch” technique to smooth under the eye. Puffy eyes on younger patients can be transformed with a transconjunctival blepharoplasty that removes fat through the inner lower lid without any external scars.

Aging issues around the eyes, especially the lower eyelid, may require more intricate surgery. Dr. Stong can use a small incision under the bottom lashes to remove the excess skin and muscle that creates deeper bags and a sunken appearance under the eyes. Elevating the skin and fat pads softens the eyes for a more youthful appearance; often an upper lid lift is combined with this procedure for a complete eye lift. In some cases, Dr. Stong may transplant fat from under the lower lid to the corner of the eyes to create a smooth, natural transition from the cheek to the eye area.

When it comes to transforming your eyes, you want a surgeon that has vast experience and proven results to undertake this delicate surgery. Dr. Stong has completed many different variations of blepharoplasty for our patients from Virginia Highlands and throughout the Atlanta area with exceptional results.

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
