Chin Implant Surgeon in Atlanta GAA person’s bone structure is often the basis on which his or her attractiveness is judged. The jaw line and nose, specifically, are the landmarks in the facial profile; when either of these is disproportioned, the entire face can look off balance. While rhinoplasty is a surgery to take care of an irregular nose, chin implants can reestablish facial harmony and bring a look of balance and confidence to the face. A chin that does not extend beyond the mouth can make the nose appear large. This “weak chin” can also make the neck appear rolled and fleshy, giving a person a double chin though s/he may not carry any extra weight. Dr. Benjamin C. Stong at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC provides chin implants to patients in Atlanta, Georgia. At Kalos we take into account all of the parameters of a chin implant procedure to ensure that a balanced and natural look are the outcomes.

Those who are born with a weak chin may not become self-conscious of this physical aspect until they reach their upper 20s or early 30s. As with many areas of life, aging can worsen a weak chin due to both the development of fat underneath the chin and the laxity of the muscle sling that holds up the tissue under the chin and in the neck. As a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Benjamin Stong can correct these issues, bringing ideal proportions and contours to the face. Dr. Stong uses advanced techniques and only specialized medical grade material of silastic, a safe, implantable material that is extremely durable. Chin implants can be done as a single surgery or in conjunction with other surgeries such as a face lift and/or rhinoplasty.

If you are interested in receiving more information about chin implants and how they can improve the balance of your face, or if you would like to set up a consultation, please contact the Chin Augmentation Surgery Specialists at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC today.

Facial Chemical Peels in Atlanta GAPerhaps when most people think of a cosmetic procedure, they think of knives, drastic changes, and extensive recovery. While this may describe some of the more advanced procedures that some people choose to have done, this in no way describes a variety of ways in which people choose to improve their appearance. Many people are simply looking for a method to maintain their youthful appearance for as long as possible. There are many non-surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic techniques that can address the signs of facial aging in order to bring about a person’s youthful glow and attractive appearance. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer facial chemical peels as a means of skin rejuvenation through chemical exfoliation. This process breaks down the dead, dull, and aging skin cells on the facial surface in order to reveal a newer, brighter complexion.

The sun’s damaging rays are the biggest contributor to aging skin. No amount of sunscreen can keep the skin free from the affects of the sun, and many people with sensitive skin will see damage as early as their 20s and 30s. Facial chemical peels can help alleviate the effects of early sun damage, residual acne scars, and promote collagen stimulation to make the skin appear younger. Facial chemical peels damage the skin’s outer layers so that they peel away. The skin is then able to produce new, younger skin to help slow the aging process. This minimally invasive procedure is a popular method of skin rejuvenation, and Dr. Benjamin C. Stong at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery will customize a chemical peel regimen to promote the best skin renewal.

Facial chemical peels are ideal for those who are seeking to improve the appearance of wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, and breakouts or acne scars. Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery offers a variety of facial chemical peels so that patients receive the most customized procedure specific to their skin. If you are interested in learning your options for skin rejuvenation, please call Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery today.

Belpharoplasty Surgeon in Atlanta GABlepharoplasty is one of the five most common plastic surgeries that is performed each year in the United States. This relatively simply outpatient surgery repairs droopy eyelids so that a person will appear years younger. Also done as a medical procedure, blepharoplasty can repair the eyes so that sagging eyelids do not impair a person’s vision. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Benjamin C. Stong leads our plastic surgery practice as a double board certified surgeon who was Fellowship trained. His extensive experience with and knowledge of the facial features makes him an expert at blepharoplasty.

The aging process takes its toll on everyone and on every area of the body. While this is not a celebrated occurrence, it can be a remedied one. Blepharoplasty is used to reduce or eliminate sagging, droopy, and heavy eyelids that give a person the appearance of being tired, grumpy, or sad all of the time. Done as an outpatient surgery on its own, or combined with other facial plastic surgeries, this one procedure has been touted by many to take at least ten years off of their face. Dr. Stong uses incisions that are camouflaged in the natural creases of the eyes during blepharoplasty. Removal of fatty tissues and excess, stretched out skin is customary with this procedure. However, Dr. Stong believes in a conservative approach to fat removal in order to avoid a hollowed sunken appearance.

If you are interested in restoring the youth and beauty to your eyes and enhance your overall facial experience, call Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery today. During your consultation, Dr. Stong will evaluate your eyes to determine if a blepharoplasty is appropriate or if another procedure, such as a brow lift, is the best route. You deserve to look your best, and Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery can make that a reality.

Forehead Lift Surgeons in Atlanta GAMany people spend countless hours in the gym or at home making sure that their bodies stay healthy and young. However, no matter how hard they try using creams and self-treatments at home, their faces still reveal that they are aging. It is unfortunate, but as we age, our bodies produce less and less amounts of collagen; therefore, our skin begins to sag and wrinkle under the effects of gravity. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, Dr. Benjamin C. Stong offers forehead lift surgery to revitalize the appearance of his patients’ faces so that they can reverse the signs of aging.

Deep creases across the forehead, sagging eyebrows, and furrows between the eyebrows can all create a tired, sad, or grumpy appearance in the face. Many people often feel that no matter how happy they feel, they never look happy because of the effects of aging on the upper portion of their face. A forehead lift is able to reverse these signs of aging to bring back the youthful glow to their faces. This procedure can also be combined with eyelid lift surgery, facelift surgery, fillers, and other procedures that help to completely transform the face. As a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Benjamin C. Stong provides his patients with the highest quality of excellence and performance.

If you are unhappy with the tired, aged appearance of your face and wish to consider a forehead lift surgical procedure, please call the experts at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery today.

Atlanta Neck Liposuction DoctorNeck fat is a problem for many people in their middle ages. Between the ages of 30-60, many people develop excess fat underneath the chin and in the neck. A high, tight neck is a sign of youth, and neck liposuction can make a big difference in a person’s appearance. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, Dr. Benjamin C. Stong is able to help patients greatly improve the appearance of their necks through neck liposuction. This cosmetic procedure removes areas of fat in the neck to help give the chin line its definition and to promote contouring of the neck.

Liposuction that is limited to a small area such as the neck has become very safe in recent years. It is much more effective for younger skin that has not been stretched out by excess fat, making the skin hang loose. However, for those whose skin is likely to hang loose, a neck lift can also be performed to pull the skin taut. Neck liposuction is a highly sought after procedure for many because it provides satisfying results rather quickly. Patients are generally pleased with having an improved facial profile, a reduction in size and fullness of the neck, and having a more defined and sculpted jaw line.

If you are self-conscious about the appearance of your neck and desire a new profile for your face, please contact Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC in Atlanta to schedule a consultation. We will review the procedure and discuss the changes you can expect. We offer a wide variety of facial plastic surgery techniques to ensure that our patients find the best procedures that will have the most desirable outcomes.

Atlanta GA Neck Lift Plastic SurgeonWhen most young people think of the signs of aging that they dread the most appearing on their faces, they typically think of crow’s feet, laugh lines and the “parentheses” lines around the mouth. However, one of the most common concerns that surprises people as they age is the sagging of their necks. Perhaps it is because it comes as such a surprise, or perhaps it is because they put so much effort into preventing lines on their faces – but many people (both men and women) find that they are extremely unhappy with the wrinkles and sagging skin below their chins. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, Georgia, Dr. Benjamin C. Stong offers solutions to those who are concerned with the vertical neck bands, “turkey waddle,” and sagging skin of the neck.

As people age, the neck undergoes several changes. Loosening and descending of fatty tissue, accumulation of extra fatty tissue, loss of skin elasticity, sagging and drooping (the “turkey waddle”) all occur. These changes decrease the definition of the jaw line and the neck, making people appear much older than they actually are. A neck lift tightens the skin and muscles of the neck to regain definition between the jaw and neck. There are different types of surgical procedures that can be done, and Dr. Stong will work with each patient on an individual basis to determine the exact procedure needed to achieve desired results.

If you would like more information about neck lift surgery or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Benjamin C. Stong, call Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery today. We look forward to helping you achieve the younger appearance that you desire.

Facial Fillers Doctor in Atlanta GACoke or Pepsi? Kleenex or Tissue? Botox or Dysport? Wait, what?!? Botox has become almost indistinguishable as a specific product name rather than something someone has done. Many people simply use the word “Botox” as a general reference to having any type of injections made into their face. However, there are many different types and brand names for injectables and fillers, each specializing in improving certain features of the face. Dysport is a relatively new competitor for Botox for improving the deep wrinkles that many men and women get between their eyebrows – known as “frown lines.” At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, we offer different types of injectables for patients who wish to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, we are devoted to providing our patients with the best options for their specific desires and facial structures. While Botox was the “go to” injection for quite a few years, there are other competing injectables on the market that offer better results for certain features. Dysport is one that has helped many clients receive a smoother result for their frown lines than Botox. While Botox has helped millions of Americans achieve a younger appearance by erasing lines and wrinkles, it is not the only “go to” injectable on the market these days.

The facial experts at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, Georgia can help patients determine which injectable is best for their skin and desired results. We are proud to offer patients different choices when it comes to filling lines and wrinkles because we understand that there is no “one size fits all” approach to any type of plastic surgery procedure. If you are interested in having your wrinkles and lines filled, please contact Kalos today. We will help you put your best face forward.

Severe Acne Treatments in Atlanta GAMany people say that aging skin’s best friend is a dermatologist. However, at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery we also believe that having a reputable plastic surgeon on your BFF list can’t hurt. Laser therapy has been used for years to correct many skin conditions that plague adolescents and adults: acne being one of them. Medical procedures such as light therapy have been proven to help clear stubborn acne, and the K Spa at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery offers laser procedures for those who struggle with this common skin condition.

The K Spa at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery uses the Cutera Laser Genesis for patients who need acne treatment. This is a noninvasive treatment that provides a high rate of success for patients who have tried other therapy methods and treatments without the desired results. Many times our K Spa experts will utilize other treatments that compliment the Cutera Laser Genesis treatment for the most optimal results. Chemical peels and clarifying facial treatments are often ideal options for those with stubborn acne. While Dr. Benjamin C. Stong does recommend that patients with moderate to severe acne continue to work with their dermatologists, we offer effective solutions at our practice.

If you suffer from acne that keeps reoccurring or that is difficult to treat, please contact Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery today. We can set up an appointment with the specialists in our K Spa who will work with you to find effective solutions to treat your acne. We understand that acne can be a burdensome condition to deal with as an adolescent or as an adult, and we want to help you find your beautiful skin. Contact our skin experts today.

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.
