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.

Facial Plastic Surgeon in Atlanta GAPeople acquire scars on their bodies for any number of reasons. Falling down while playing a sport, falling while learning to ride a bike, surgery needed to repair a broken bone – all are relatively common. However, scars that are on the face are often not as common, nor are they as easy to ignore. Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. The most common facial scars are caused by acne; however there are some facial scars that are a result of violence or tragedy – all of which can be devastating to a person’s self-esteem. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, we offer dedicated care and individualized treatment for those who wish to have scar revision. Many times our patients will tell us the back story of how a facial scar was received, but sometimes they are too painful to discuss. We offer the most precise surgical scar revision to erase the scars that cause repeated reminders.

Poor healing of the skin and/or picking at acne are the most common causes that contribute to acne scars on the face. However, even a wound that does heal well can still result in a scar that affects a person’s appearance. Scars can be recessed, raised, differ in texture or color from surrounding skin tissue, and can be any shape or size. Because of these individual characteristics of every scar, a knowledgeable and experienced surgeon should be trusted for scar revision.

Dr. Benjamin Stong at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery will thoroughly examine your scar to determine the most appropriate treatment for you. He is committed to helping all of his clients achieve excellent results regardless of the causes or circumstances behind the scar. The entire staff at Kalos offers compassion and care with every scar revision. If you would like to schedule a consultation regarding scar revision, please contact Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC today.

Botox Injections in Atlanta GAMany people talk with their entire face. They are animated, engaging, and able to captivate an audience. While these qualifications can be a good thing for a mom who is a great story-teller, an employee who is trying to win a promotion, or a friend enjoying life – these can also be causes of wrinkles on the upper face. Repeated folding of the skin from normal facial expressions causes horizontal lines on the forehead, frown lines, forehead furrows, and crows’ feet. Botox can be used as a preventive method to keep these wrinkles from forming as well as treatment for those who already have these wrinkles on their forehead. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, we offer Botox injections for patients who wish to erase the signs of aging on the face.

Many plastic surgeons agree that treating wrinkles of the forehead before they become deep set in the skin is a great method of preventing permanent lines and folds in the skin. Some clinical studies have shown that early injections of Botox can prevent lines and wrinkles. Rather than reversing the signs of aging in people who are in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, they inhibit the signs from ever developing in the first place. Dr. Benjamin Stong and his professional staff offer Botox facial fillers to those who not only wish to reverse the effects of aging but also for those who wish to prevent them.

Patients who have forehead wrinkles treated with Botox experience a dramatic facial appearance. Instead of a tired, sad, or angry expression they have a more youthful and pleasing appearance that reflects their true personalities. If you have questions about Botox treatments or if you would like to schedule an appointment, please contact our Botox Injections Specialists at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC today.

Atlanta Plastic SurgeonMen and women of all ethnic backgrounds all have one thing in common: they age. As people age they lose the firmness and fullness in their facial features that result in wrinkles and sagging skin. While this aging process is completely natural, many people choose to fight against it and opt to enhance their appearances through cosmetic procedures. A Mini Facelift is designed to improve facial aging and re-establish facial balance giving an overall lift to the neck in the mid-face and neck. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, Dr. Benjamin C. Stong is a dual board plastic surgeon that offers his expertise in facial plastic surgery to help men and women improve their appearance through mini facelift procedures.

Many people find that in their late thirties to early forties that their faces no longer have the youthful appearance, yet they do not need the drastic improvements of a full facelift. A mini facelift is suited to those who have a limited amount of sagging skin and deep lines, and fewer concerns with droopy brows and sagging in the mid-face and neck. Many people in their forties opt to have a mini face lift to not only improve the signs of aging, but to also slow down the rate at which the face ages. A mini facelift can correct the initial signs of aging and give better definition to the face that mimics the youthful appearance that people had in their late twenties and thirties. Like a traditional face lift, the underlying muscles are tightened to boost the brows and cheeks. While the eyes are not typically done at the same time, many people find that the appearance of their eyes also improves.

At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, Dr. Stong leads his practice and offers mini face lift procedures for those who are still young but who have started to exhibit signs of droopy jowls and sagging skin. Dr. Stong offers the most contemporary cosmetic surgical techniques and will help patients to have realistic expectations as well as choosing the most appropriate procedure for them. If you are ready to take back your youthful appearance, contact Kalos today to schedule your consultation.

Facial Plastic Surgeon in Atlanta GAOtoplasty is a surgical procedure done to the ear to cosmetically alter the size, position, or proportion of the ear(s). Protruding, asymmetrical, or prominent ears are known as a developmental abnormality from birth. Ears that protrude from the head or are overly large can cause many people, especially children, to be self-conscious. It is very unfortunate, but many children who have prominent are teased throughout childhood and adolescence. The earlier otoplasty surgery is done, the less ridicule and teaching children will endure from their peers. Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC offers the highest standards and latest technology in otoplasty procedures.

The ears typically stop growing after the age of four, which is why otoplasty surgery is often done on children and adolescents. Adults with protruding or asymmetrical ears are also good candidates for otoplasty, and there are no additional risks for older patients. Cosmetically improving the appearance of the ears is a relatively small procedure that can have a huge impact on a person’s life. During consultation at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, the patient’s desires will be discussed, expectations of the surgery will be discussed, and a comprehensive evaluation of the ear cartilage will be done so as to tailor the surgery to each individual patient.

If you were born with overly large ears or ears that stick out prominently, if your ears are disproportionate to your head or are oddly placed, or if you have suffered an injury that has negatively impacted the shape or positioning of your ears – contact the Otoplasty Surgery experts at Kalos. Dr. Benjamin Stong is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon, and he offers the most qualified experience for anyone considering otoplasty.

Atlanta Male Plastic SurgeryEyelid surgery, called Blepharoplasty, is a common surgery to improve the tired look of the eyes. Many males choose to have eyelid surgery because they often find that the heavy skin around their eyes wrinkles and sags or that the puffy bags underneath the eyes begins to prematurely age the face. Eyelid surgery is used to remove fatty deposits from the lower lids and to tighten the skin on the upper lids. Blepharoplasty can do wonders for men who feel energetic on the inside, but who look tired or angry on the outside.

Eyelid surgery is a very good option for men because it allows for a subtle change in the appearance to make a dramatic improvement of the face. Eyelid surgery can also be combined with a facelift for a more dramatic change for those men who are looking to completely change their appearance. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, Dr. Benjamin Stong offers expert precision for those who choose eyelid surgery. Dr. Stong is a Fellowship trained dual board certified facial plastic surgeon that is committed to providing the highest level of service to each patient.

Both the upper eyelids and lower eyelids can be done at the same time if that is the desire of the patient. Depending on the extent of the surgery, blepharoplasty typically takes one or two hours. The results of eyelid surgery can extend beyond just the eyelids by taking up to ten years off of a man’s facial appearance. If you are interested in having eyelid surgery, contact Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC today to schedule your consultation.

Facial Plastic Surgeon in Atlanta GAIn 2013, Botox injections were the number one non-surgical facial procedure performed in the United States. There has also been an increase in the number of facial resurfacing treatments such as chemical peels, micro dermabrasion, and laser therapy. Invasive surgical procedures used to be needed to obtain the results that most people hoped to achieve from having “work done” on their faces. Today, however, with different options available to help erase the signs of aging and to rejuvenate the skin, men and women are finding it easier than ever to enhance their appearances. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, we offer a broad spectrum of therapies from topical therapy to resurfacing procedures.

Non-surgical facial rejuvenation offers a wide range of procedures with many different options and techniques. Injections can help the muscles relax in order to smooth away dynamic wrinkles. Other dermal fillers are available to minimizing deep wrinkles and filling in facial scars, and they can also be used to plump up the lips. Microdermabrasion, facials, and chemical peels are used to bring back the youthful glow of the skin that often gets lost with age and sun damage.

The popularity of these nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures is due to the fact that they are designed for today’s busy lifestyle. Most people do not have the extra time in their schedules for weeks of downtime and recovery. However, most people can fit in a nonsurgical rejuvenation procedure during their lunch breaks. Botox and dermal filler injections take just a few minutes to administer, while resurfacing treatments can be more like a spa treatment than a medical procedure.

At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, we strive to not only give our patients the quality of service that they are looking for, but we also strive to offer a variety of procedures so that all patients can find something that they are looking for. Contact Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC today to schedule your appointment.
