5 out of 5 stars Deep Plane Facelift
Exceeded Expectations! I visited Dr. Benjamin Stong and Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery and have enjoyed excellent results with very little discomfort. I have had several opportunities to develop great confidence in Dr. Stong and his staff who are patient, knowledgeable and professional. The waiting room and treatment rooms are soothing and serene. All the members of his staff invest...
5 out of 5 stars Facelift
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...
5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
I chose Dr. Stong because I trusted his conservative approach. There was a hollowness and excessive wrinkling under my eyes causing people to ask me if I was tired when I wasn't. The goal was to look rested, not younger, and he accomplished this. My recovery has been faster than expected and Dr. Stong continues to tweak the results. I was pleasantly surprised when attending social and business...
5 out of 5 stars Facelift
As most people I was nervous about changing my face. I had been think about surgery for years. I spent a lot of time researching on the internet and then a friend of mine told be about Dr. Stong. I was immediately at ease. The calm demeanor and confidence put my mind to rest. I'm about a year out from surgery and the results are better than I had hoped. My nose looks natural and more...
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
It took me over 20 years to get the courage to undergo rhinoplasty. I was terrified of surgery and trusting someone with my face. When I finally decided to undergo the procedure I wanted the best surgeon possible. I am so glad I found Dr. Stong. He specializes in facial surgery and is up to date on the latest techniques. He listened to what I envisioned as the final result. His staff was super...
5 out of 5 stars Voluma
After having injectable fillers previously, I was hesitant to have them again due to severe bruising that lasted over 2 weeks. When I learned about Dr. Strong's cannula technique, I decided to give it a try. Two days post-procedure and I haven't had the first sign of bruising or discoloration. Truly I'm in shock, as I bruise very easily and had such complications from a former injection. I...
5 out of 5 stars Restylane Silk
I had always wanted to get some type of lip filler/enhancement, but was always so nervous because of poor outcomes of other people in general whether they just overdid it or the procedure wasn't done well. Finally, I found Dr. Stong who is strictly facial so I thought who better to go to than someone who specializes in just that! I finally went through with the procedure, choosing Restylane...
5 out of 5 stars Pearl Laser
There are two Pearl forms, fractional non-fractional. I opted for the non-fractional, which my doctor told me as more appropriate for me. The fractional is more invasive and requires more down-time, but I hear it’s good, too. It just depends on your doctor’s recommendation. I had my procedure done at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, by Dr. Benjamin Stong. The staff was absolutely won...
1 out of 5 stars Pearl Laser
I am 54 and have always had good skin. I used retin-A through the years with good results. Since I intend to have a face lift in a year, I was doing this to get my skin in optimal shape beforehand. Also, I was starting to develop lines above my upper lip and had a couple of faint scars that I wanted taken care of. I opted for the full Pearl fractional and the laser. They gave me a valium, but...

The upper eyelids and brow should be considered together for rejuvenation of the upper third of the face. The upper eyelid is one of the first areas of the face to show signs of aging, with excess skin. If left long enough, the redundant skin can obstruct a patient’s peripheral vision. Patients often complain of heaviness of the upper eyelid with outside observers commenting that the patient looks tired. Along with redundant skin, the upper eyelid can have bulging of the fat pads that...
