I am proud to give patients a a better approach to facial injections, which results in less swelling and allows the patient to attain more natural and subtle changes more quickly, says Dr. Stong of Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Benjamin Stong of Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery in Atlanta is a reputable and highly skilled facial plastic surgeon who was chosen by RadarOnline to comment on pop singer Christina Aguilera and her visibly swollen lips at her comeback performance at the American Music Awards as well as Kourtney Kardashian and her visibly droopy eyelid during her confessional on a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Dr. Stong offered his observation that Aguilera's top lip looked noticeably fuller than her bottom lip, and that the pop star’s lips were limited in movement during her singing performance. As Dr. Stong stated, some swelling and stiffness is expected as a temporary side effect after getting lip fillers, but should resolve over time. Lip fillers such as Restylane are a non-surgical method to plump or volumnize the lips. In the case of Aguilera, the lip changes resulted in a more dramatic, swollen appearance that made them newsworthy instead of subtle or natural-looking.

He also offered his expert opinion on possible reasons for Kourtney Kardashian’s noticeably sagging eye, including a possible mishap with Botox. He noted her “left upper eyelid does appear to be drooping or ptotic. Botox injections can cause this if it migrates to the muscle that keeps the eyelid open. It typically occurs by injecting too close to the muscle and using diluted Botox.”

When it comes to lip fillers and other facial injection procedures to rejuvenate the face such as Botox, Dr. Stong is known for his groundbreaking technique. Dr. Stong uses an innovative injection technique that virtually eliminates the associated pain, swelling, bruising and social downtime. Instead of using a sharp hypodermic needle, Dr. Stong uses a special blunt-tip cannula, which helps to prevent torn blood vessels and nerves and allows patients to avoid immediate bruising and swelling that may last for several days.

“The immediate yet temporary side effects from traditional lip filler injections can include noticeable swelling, as likely in the case of Christina Aguilera. I am proud to give patients a a better approach to facial injections, which results in less swelling and bruising and allows the patient to attain more natural and subtle changes more quickly,” says Dr. Stong of Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery.
