Virginia Highlands Facelift Surgery

When you decide to undergo facelift surgery, you want to feel assured you are in the most capable hands in the industry. Dr. Benjamin Stong at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC has the credentials, experience and expertise that you desire in a surgeon performing this complicated and delicate procedure. Our clinic is near Virginia Highlands, giving you local access to one of the best facial plastic surgeons in the country.

There are many different types of facelift, or rhytidectomy, surgeries that can diminish the effects of aging. Dr. Ben Stong is highly esteemed in the field and uses the most advanced techniques to perform several different types of facelifts for our patients. Not all surgeons have the training or talent to use these specialized methods that offer superior results to outdated practices. When considering facelift surgery, you want results that will look natural and last, which these more sophisticated methods can offer.

Traditional facelifts focus on shifting skin that has sagged or dropped in the midface to a higher position. While this can give a temporary improvement to some aging issues, it can also have undesired effects. If the skin is pulled too tightly, the appearance can look “overdone” and artificial. It also does not move the tissue under the skin that has sagged. Since only the skin is moved, the results can quickly fade and the patient may be very disappointed with their appearance in only a short period of time.

The Deep Plane Facelift Difference

Dr. Ben Stong is trained and experienced in using more complicated facelift skills that are required for the deep plane technique. This precise and intricate practice elevates both the skin and the attached Subcutaneous Musculo-Aponeurotic System (SMAS) during a facelift for excellent results. The tissue and skin around the jaw, mouth, nose and cheek areas are carefully placed into a higher, more youthful position to dispel the lines and sagging appearance. The outcome is beautiful and natural-appearing for our patients, looking more like their younger self.

Not only does the deep plane method offer exceptional results, it has other benefits as well. The incisions that Dr. Stong uses are small and easy to hide, leaving less scarring for the patient. Since tiny, precise incisions are used, the patient heals quicker, having less downtime and discomfort. Recovery is much quicker than a traditional facelift, getting you back to your life as soon as possible.

A composite rhytidectomy, or deep plane facelift, can be combined with other cosmetic procedures or done as a singular surgery. Many patients want a “full” facelift and combine the deep plane facelift with an eyelid or brow lift. Others may choose to have a chin implant added for jaw definition, a common request with our male facelift patients. Dr. Stong has the expertise and experience in many different cosmetic procedures to help you obtain the appearance you desire.

Choosing an Experienced Facelift Surgeon

When it comes to changing the appearance of your face, you want a facial plastic surgeon that you can trust.

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
