Atlanta Facial Plastic SurgeonHemangiomas are benign blood vessel tumors that occur in childhood. Typically, parents will begin to see evidence of their appearance within the first few weeks of a child’s life. They first appear as a faint red or pink blemish that rapidly grows into a larger mass. Many parents are distressed by the appearance of hemangiomas. Despite the fact that they are non-cancerous, they can be a constant source of stress to the parent as they are frequently asked if their baby has a tumor or was injured. Parents also understand the social embarrassment that will most likely occur as their children grow older. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, Dr. Benjamin C. Stong is a reputable and experienced facial plastic surgeon that offers birthmark correction for children and adults.

Hemangiomas are an abnormally dense collection of dilated capillaries (or small blood vessels) that form at the skin. The majority of hemangiomas appear on the neck, head, or face in easily visible locations. Some hemangiomas will disappear on their own in a matter of time. The growth of hemangiomas typically peeks at twelve months of age and will begin to plateau. They will then take several years to disappear or absorb back into the skin. Many large hemangiomas will not disappear completely, or at all, because they grow too much or develop lesions. For parents who wish to have their children’s hemangiomas treated or removed, they can trust the expertise and compassionate care that Dr. Stong offers.

At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Stong offers surgical techniques as well as laser therapy to manage or remove hemangiomas. Using only the safest and most effective treatment options for patients who are psychologically or physically impacted from hemangiomas, Dr. Benjamin Stong is the surgeon to trust in Atlanta. Call Kalos today to schedule a consultation. We look forward to helping your child, or you, thrive.

Atlanta Otoplasty SurgeryOtoplasty, also known as ear reduction surgery, is defined as the correction of protruding or prominent ears. Children and adults are both candidates for otoplasty to correct birth defects, injuries, and ears that are overly large or extrude from the sides of the head. While many females are able to hide their ears by covering them up with long hair, this limits the hairstyles that they can wear and is also not doable for most men. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Benjamin C. Stong has performed many otoplasty surgeries to help people find their confidence and correct the size and shape of their ears. Otoplasty is one of the most conventional ear surgery procedures performed, and patients can trust Dr. Stong to use the correct techniques to achieve the results that they hope for.

Otoplasty is a popular procedure for people who do not like their ears. Children who are constantly teased by their classmates or family members often suffer needlessly from the appearance of their ears. Adults who did not have their ears corrected as a child or who have suffered from an injury, may also suffer from feeling self-conscious about their ears. Otoplasty is a very safe procedure that is used to correct a wide variety of ear imperfections for both children and adults. Enhancing a person’s self esteem with a minimally invasive corrective procedure is one way that Kalos serves patients.

If you or your child feels uncomfortable about the appearance, size, shape, or protrusion of the ears, call Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery. We are committed to meeting our patients’ desires from Otoplasty, and look forward to helping you or your child.

Atlanta Vampire FaceliftDr. Benjamin C. Stong is a Fellowship trained dual board certified plastic surgeon that dedicates his time away from patients for staying abreast of the latest and most advanced facial rejuvenating procedures. The Vampire Facelift is one of the latest non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures to be offered by the most well trained and highest respected plastic surgeons. There are many procedures that safely and effectively address the unwanted signs of aging on the face, but few are as advanced as the Vampire Facelift offered at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC.

The Vampire Facelift is a non-surgical facial procedure in which a person’s own blood is extracted and then re-injected in to multiple areas of the skin in the face to correct wrinkles and bring back a youthful appearance. The blood that is extracted is enriched with platelets, and the blood transforms into a sort of gel-like substance. This substance is then injected into the face where lines and wrinkles are found and used as a facial filler in much the same way that Rejuvaderm and Restylane are used. While it may sound otherworldly, this procedure is actually classified as a “natural procedure.” This Vampire Facelift (also known as the Stem Cell Facelift) is an option for those wishing for a natural and safe procedure that is also highly effective for restoring a youthful appearance.

To learn more about this cutting-edge technique for addressing unwanted signs of aging, contact Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery today. Many people are choosing the Vampire Facelift because it requires minimal downtime and boasts a natural healing process that promotes long lasting results. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, we are committed to using the most advanced techniques available to help patients achieve the confident appearance they desire.

Atlanta Facial Plastic SurgeonTwenty years ago plastic surgery was typically something only “vain women” dabbled with. Today, however, plastic surgery is for many people who wish to enhance their appearance or take years off of their face – including men. Men want to look refreshed and young just like women do. Watching themselves age before the mirror can be as hard on the male gender as it is on the female gender. In fact, many men report feeling more concerned with their aging appearance because of the fierce competition they find in the corporate world. Plastic surgery procedures for men can help them improve their attractiveness, look as young as they feel, and remain competitive in their careers.

Plastic surgery procedures for men are very similar to those for women, with a few tweaks in the process. Men generally want a more subtle effect from their chosen procedures. Other than a few exceptions, most men in their fifties are not looking for that chiseled look of their twenties; they are simply wishing to appear younger and more vibrant. The most common procedures for men include an upper eye lift, lower eyelid fat contouring, rhinoplasty (“nose job”), facelift, and a neck lift. Men can find amazing results from these procedures that will leave others wondering how they are looking so good at their age.

At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Benjamin C. Stong, M.D. understands the specific factors of the male face. Thicker skin and facial hair must be evaluated and taken into consideration with every male cosmetic procedure. Dr. Stong uses his knowledge and expertise to help men find their inner confidence and exhibit it.

Contact the cosmetic specialists for men at Kalos today for more information and to schedule your consultation.

Atlanta Lip AugmentationAs people age, the face often shows the first signs. While many people still associate crow’s feet and sagging skin with aging, the lips can also disclose a person’s age. Fat deposits that were prevalent in youth to keep the face full and youthful dissipate as people age. Lips thin out, tiny vertical lines appear, the “cupid’s bow” in the upper lip begins to flatten, and the upper lip lengthens and hangs lower than it used to. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Benjamin C. Stong offers patients V to Y Lip Augmentation to enhance the youthful fullness of the lips.

While there are non-surgical options for those who wish to plump up their lips (such as Restylane or Juvederm injections), for patients who wish for more permanent results Dr. Stong can perform V to Y Lip Augmentation. This procedure produces the fullest lips and results in lips that appear very pouty and sensual. Dr. Stong is a Fellowship trained dual board certified plastic surgeon that specializes in both surgical and non-surgical lip augmentation procedures. He is one of only a few doctors in the United States who performs the advanced V to Y Lip Augmentation procedure. This procedure is highly desirable for those who desire more volume in their lips without any obvious scars. The incisions for a V to Y Lip Augmentation are carefully placed on the inside of the lips, and the entire procedure can be completed in a single office visit with very little downtime.

If you are interested in having a V to Y Lip Augmentation call Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC today to schedule a consultation. Dr. Stong is well respected by fellow surgeons and he is greatly trusted by his patients. He provides the highest standard in patient care, and he stands behind the work that he performs. Your lips can be enhanced and your entire face can be transformed through a V to Y Lip Augmentation. A pouty mouth is a beautiful mouth.

Atlanta Facial Plastic SurgeonMost people of every race, color, and ethnic background are born with a birthmark somewhere on the body. Birthmarks usually manifest at birth, but they have been known to appear up until the age of ten. Birthmarks are pigmented lesions that vary in color, size, and texture. For many, these spots are in an inconspicuous spot on the body or are light enough in color that they are not bothersome or embarrassing. However, for others, certain types of birthmarks are very noticeable and can cause embarrassment. Dr. Benjamin C. Stong at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery offers a variety of safe and effective techniques for birthmark correction and removal.

Birthmarks are skin pigmentations that come in two categories: vascular and pigmentary. Pigmentary birthmarks are the most common type of birthmark and are typically light brown in color. These are permanent skin pigmentations and can be found anywhere on the body, in all different shapes and sizes. Vascular birthmarks are the most common type of birthmark that is removed or corrected. These birthmarks are highly visible, such as port wine stains and hemangiomas, because they are typically found on the head, face, or the neck. Specific frequency lasers can be used to dramatically lighten birthmarks, many times even making them disappear completely. Each patient is different, and it may take multiple treatments to reach maximum birthmark correction, but Dr. Stong is committed to helping all of his patients achieve the results that they desire.

At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, we understand how important it is for people to feel confident in the skin that they are in. We are proud to offer birthmark correction to patients in the Atlanta area. Dr. Stong is qualified, experienced, and highly skilled at helping patients achieve their ideal cosmetic results. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation.

Atlanta Non-Surgical Eye LiftAsk many people if they would like to erase the lines and wrinkles around their eyes and most of them would say, “Yes!” However, ask them if they would be willing go undergo plastic surgery in order to erase those lines and wrinkles and the answers become varied. While some would still choose to undergo surgery, most would rather try at home methods of creams or simply age naturally. While facelifts, eye lift surgeries, and eye brow lifts were once the only solutions for treating the sagging skin, wrinkles, and lines of the upper face, today there is another option.

Doctors and plastic surgeons now know that sagging skin, wrinkles, and folds are the result of the loss of structure and volume as collagen production of the skin lessens and diminishes as we age. Therefore, Liquid Eye Lift procedures are now common for those who wish to erase the signs of age around the eyes. By using a combination of injectable products such as Botox, Sculptra, and facial fillers doctors are able to achieve natural results that take years off of the facial appearance. The eyes have been called the “windows to the soul” for centuries, and they are often where a person’s age is told. Whether it be sagging skin under the lower lids or upper lids, a constant tired expression, or wrinkles and lines around the corners of the eyes – eyes can often make a person look older than s/he really is.

At Kalos Facial Plastic, Laser & Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Benjamin Stong offers patients an alternative to traditional plastic surgery to reverse the signs of aging around the eyes. As a Fellowship trained, dual board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Stong utilizes the latest advancements and techniques to effectively restore balance and beauty to aging skin around the eyes. If you would like to have a consultation to see if you are a good candidate for a Liquid Eye Lift, please contact Kalos today. We are dedicated to helping our patients regain a youthful and natural appearance so that they can put their most beautiful face forward.

Atlanta Facial Plastic SurgeonOh, aging. It happens to everyone. Many people begin to see signs of aging as early as their 30s. The skin begins to lose its elasticity, and many men and women begin to notice sagging or drooping around the cheeks, jowls, and neck area. While a traditional facelift is appropriate for those who are looking to reduce wrinkles and sagging throughout their entire face, a mini facelift is intended for younger patients who wish to take preventive measures instead of waiting to undergo a more intensive surgery. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, we understand the effects aging and the sun have on the facial skin. A mini facelift surgery can restore the appearance of youth by greatly decreasing the effects of early aging on the face.

A mini facelift is commonly referred to as a “weekend” facelift because the incisions are quite small and the recovery period is much quicker. The mini facelift is one of the least invasive procedures in facial surgery because it involves minimal cutting of the skin. As the skin ages, several changes also occur. Loosening and descending of fatty tissues, loss of elasticity, loss of fatty tissue, and natural changes in the facial structure all combine to result in a face that appears tired and older. Meeting with a plastic surgeon who is an expert in the face such as Dr. Benjamin C. Stong is essential to acquiring optimal results. Dr. Stong is qualified and experienced in mini facelift procedures and can create a youthful, beautiful, and natural facial appearance.

If you are interested in learning more about a mini facelift, or you would like to schedule a consultation to determine if a mini facelift is the right procedure to correct signs of aging on your face, call Kalos today. You can have the dramatic results that you hope for in your 30s or 40s in order to reverse the signs of aging as you continue to grow older. Your youthful appearance is just a call away!

While many people associate plastic surgery with vain women who want assets to flaunt, the truth is plastic surgery is for everyone – male and female – who wise to alter or improve their appearance. Plastic surgery for men has been on the rise in the last decade, with male rhinoplasty topping the list of procedures requested. The business and social world in which we all live in is increasingly competitive. Many people have killer resumes with remarkable achievements, yet it is remarkable how the ones with better looks somehow seem to [almost] always get ahead.

Rhinoplasty is a surgery to alter the appearance of the nose. However, one major benefit of a rhinoplasty is that it can dramatically improve the overall appearance of the entire face. The nose is the centerpiece, if you will, of the face. When having a conversation with someone, your eyes travel back and forth from the other person’s eyes to the mouth. That leaves the nose in the middle of every conversation. Rhinoplasty can be performed to narrow the bridge between the eyes, alter the angle of the upper lip, reducing the width of the nostrils, removing a hump, and modifying the size of the nose. Dr. Benjamin C. Stong is a dual board certified surgeon and offers a full range of facial plastic surgery techniques. He has reached the highest level of specialization, education, and certification in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Stong offers all of his patients the most advanced techniques available in facial plastic surgery. He has performed a countless number of rhinoplasty surgeries, including revision rhinoplasty surgeries to correct a prior unsuccessful procedure. If you are interested in having rhinoplasty to improve the appearance of your face, contact Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC today to schedule a consultation. Dr. Stong understands how to deliver superior results with the highest quality care.

He has been performing make facelift surgery with successful results for many years. For a man, the face can have a significant impact on his career, personal life, and self-confidence.

This, along with the sagging neck skin that is typical of an aging man, can add years to the appearance. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, men can find the solution to their aging faces through male facelift surgery.
