Atlanta, GA (Vocus) February 22, 2010
Kalos: The Atlanta Center for Facial Plastic, Reconstructive, and Laser Surgery is now open! Located in The Tower at Northside and conveniently located for all Atlanta major metropolitan areas, the office is equipped with the latest technology to provide the highest quality service. The word ‘Kalos’ is derived from the ancient Greek word for beautiful. Modern ideal aesthetics are based upon principles and standards developed by the ancient Greeks. These same principles are held in the forefront of cosmetic surgical planning, while today we use the most advanced, longest lasting surgical techniques. The founder of Kalos, Benjamin C. Stong MD, is a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon who completed his fellowship in Manhattan and the North Shore of Long Island.
A full spectrum of procedures are offered including: facelifts and neck lifts, rhinoplasty, midface lifts, blepharoplasty and oculoplastic reconstructive eyelid surgery, Mohs skin caner reconstruction, surgical lip enhancement, fat transfers, facial paralysis surgery, and skin rejuvenation procedures. One surgery Dr. Stong introduces to the Atlanta community is a delicate, contemporary, permanent surgical lip augmentation procedure. Using no external incisions, the innovative V to Y lip augmentation rolls the lip out, increasing the visible portion of the red lip, resulting in a permanently fuller lip. The procedure is customizable and can be tailored to the patient’s specific goals.
The midface lift Dr. Stong performs uses the state of the art technique that is only performed by a handful of surgeons worldwide. Other techniques do not adequately release and lift the tissues of the midface. This results in early failures and disappointing outcomes. Dr. Stong also uses the most contemporary S-Lift, short scar, mini facelift incision, while lifting and tightening the deeper support structures of the face using a proven deep plane facelift or extended SMAS flap technique. These lifting methods are proven to generate optimal long lasting outcomes. While the skin incision is very important, it is how the deeper facial support structures are addressed that create superior end results, longevity, and very satisfied patients.
Kalos also introduces Atlanta to the state of the art in laser skin rejuvenation. It is the first practice to offer the Pearl Fractional and Pearl Fusion procedures. These treatments use the latest and most advanced resurfacing laser, ysgg, produced by the Cutera Xeo system. The Pearl Fusion procedure combines the benefit of a superficial to medium laser skin peel with deep dermal fractionated resurfacing. Together, these procedures significantly improve advanced wrinkles and skin discolorations including age and sun spots, while eliminating the risks and problems associated with other laser systems. Due to the advanced laser technology, healing is fast, allowing patients to get back to their everyday activities as fast as possible, without compromising excellent results.
At Kalos: The Atlanta Center for Facial Plastic, Reconstructive and Laser Surgery Dr. Stong will listen to his patients and develop a plan to achieve their goals using the most advanced and contemporary facial plastic surgery procedures as well as the latest in skin rejuvenation technology. He has also developed a patient information advocacy site at http://www.aboutfacialplasticsurgery.com to help patients decipher marketing terminology and understand the reality of facial plastic surgery procedures while avoiding complications and disappointing outcomes. Dr. Stong looks forward to working with patients in the Atlanta area and welcomes patients from all over the world.
