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 physician who gave me so much of his time from my first visit to my last. On March 16th I had a facelift and upper blepharoplasty. I love it! I'm still healing but the changes so far have been amazing. Dr. Stong was very clear and honest on what to expect in every phase of my surgery. Love his staff, they were super friendly, reassuring when I was nervous, and supportive throughout. Will return only to him for future procedures and will continue to recommend him to my friends and family.

In March 2015, I underwent surgery for a deviated septum, performed by Dr. Stong. In our consultations prior to surgery, Dr. Stong was very clear about what I should expect. The procedure and post-op healing went exactly as I was told to anticipate. Throughout the process, the entire Kalos team was helpful and checked on me regularly. If a friend wanted or needed a facial procedure, I would enthusiastically recommend Dr. Ben Stong.

Three weeks ago, four days before a large party to celebrate my 20th anniversary and 50th birthday, I went to my dermatologist to get a "small" basil cell carcinoma removed from the end of my nose. The spot in question was only a couple of millimeters in diameter, so I assumed that was about what they would remove. The Mohs surgery was scheduled for 8am, so I thought I would be back at work before lunch with a couple of stiches. After the second pass, they got all of the cancer, but I was left with a hole at the end of my nose a little larger than a nickel. The dermatologist did not think a simple skin graft would yield a satisfactory result and referred me to Dr. Stong. Dr. Stong worked me in that same afternoon and rebuilt my nose using some cartilage from my ear and folding down a skin flap from the bridge of my nose. He worked me in again the day before the party and fixed my ear where it was barely noticeable so the party was able to go forward with only a band aid on my nose. Two days later, he removed the stiches from my nose. While I still have a little swelling, and I'm following his instructions to reduce/prevent scarring, I'm amazed at the result he was able to achieve. I am confident that in the end, no one will ever guess I had such a large chunk of my nose missing. I am very glad that Dr. Stong is as skilled as he is, and I would highly recommend him to anyone in a similar situation.

After 2 surgeries and a year of treatment following Mohs surgery by my original plastic surgeon, he said he could do no more but the area was still very bumpy and looked bad. I was lucky to be referred to Dr. Stong and he fixed the area with one, in office, surgery. He is a talented plastic surgeon, his results are impressive and I highly recommend him.

Dr. Strong is one of the best doctors I have ever dealt with. He is very knowledgeable in his field and he takes the time to explain and address your concerns. I went to him after I had a botched filler job and I had other concerns with my aging skin. I did a lot of research on different doctors and he was my top choice. He completely fixed the botched filler job and added new filler that looks amazing and completely natural. I also got Botox which I must say was the best I have ever received and once again very natural looking. I also did the Laser Pearl to address sun damage and uneven skin tone, I am very pleased with my results and so I happy I decided to do the Laser Pearl. If you want the best then I suggest you go to Dr. Strong, he will exceed your expectations and he is so pleasant to deal with.

I am 32 and have extensive sun damage that's caused hyperpigmentation and fine lines. The staff was absolutely wonderful; very friendly and anticipated my questions. Dr. Stong took his time to answer questions and discuss my expectations/results. I followed the post-procedure directions as advised, and have to say the whole process was fairly easy. As a plus, I absolutely love the results and am continuing to see improvement two months post-procedure.

I received the best possible care from Dr. Stong and the staff at Kalos and am 100% satisfied with my results from the pearl laser skin resurfacing. I am a 30-year-old former smoker and this was my reward to myself, a fresh face! Thank you, Kalos!

I went to see Dr. Benjamin Stong for a scar revision at the recommendation of my dermatologist. Dr. Stong has a winning personality, he is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. After an initial consultation, I felt comfortable with the outlined surgical procedure which involved all internal stiches. I couldn't be more satisfied with the results. After just two months, I can barely see the fine line that represents the scar. I highly recommend Dr. Stong!!
