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.

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.
