Minimally Invasive Rhinoplasty / Nosejob

Dr. Ben Talei at the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery a leading figure in the field of Minimally Invasive Rhinoplasty (Nosejob) and Minimally Invasive Revision Rhinoplasty. He is constantly pushing the envelope in order to achieve more natural, more significant results with significantly les swelling and downtime. Although this type of nose procedure cannot be performed for all types of patients, for select candidates the outcomes are remarkable.

What is Rhinoplasty? What is a typical Nosejob?

A Nose Job or Rhinoplasty is the surgical reshaping of the nose, most often for cosmetic reasons. For certain patients, fillers can be used to augment or change the shape of the nose when performing Liquid Rhinoplasty, Filler Rhinoplasty, or a Liquid NoseJob. Most surgeons in the country were trained to utilize the Open Rhinoplasty technique most often. This involves making an external incision through the columella and elevating the skin and muscle layer in order to gain access to the bony and cartilaginous infrastructure of the nose.

Closed Rhinoplasty can often achieve the same outcome without the use of external incisions. This can’t be performed with every nose however, and not all surgeons are comfortable performing Rhinoplasty using a Closed or Endonasal technique. When they do, they typically only treat the dorsum (bridge and top) of the nose avoiding any significant tip work or tip refinement. Surgeons with more advanced technique are able to affect a greater change and perform complex reshaping using only internal incisions. The benefit to Closed Rhinoplasty is that is provides faster healing times and avoids external incisions and scars.

Neither approach is right or wrong to use. What dictates the type of Rhinoplasty performed is the surgeon’s comfort level and experience as well as what the patient’s nose permits. From either approach, the cartilages and bone can be reshaped to provide a more harmonious and pleasant appearance. Many specialists are also committed to improving nasal breathing.

Although Rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures, you must remember that it is also one of the most difficult. And, while the majority of surgeons may be able to get an adequate outcome with a simple nose and minor changes, it truly takes a specialist to help you judge what is right for you and obtain results in a predictable and reproducible way for every nose type.

What is Minimally Invasive Rhinoplasty?

Minimally Invasive Rhinoplasty is a technique pioneered by Dr. Talei to shorten healing time and bruising even more while leaving minimal to no evidence a surgery was done. This is a form of Closed, Endonasal, or Internal Rhinoplasty consisting of more limited incisions and less dissection, which makes the procedure more difficult. All incisions are made internally with no external evidence of scar or discoloration. Making more limited incisions gives the surgeon less room to work in, so pre-operative photography and detailed analysis is of utmost importance in order to help predict the maneuvers that need to be made. Dr. Talei’s patients are consistently thrilled with the results and even their closest family members have difficulty accepting that a procedure was done. What sets Dr. Talei apart is that he is able to obtain the most significant changes in the nasal aesthetic and breathing while improving balance within the face and maintaining and entirely natural and untouched appearance.

I am absolutely ecstatic about my results!!!!!! I am a model and actress as well as an occasional TV host. I have been performing upkeep for my face and lips in Beverly Hills for years and I was convinced I was with the most talented and famous surgeons and dermatologists, but boy was I wrong! One visit with Dr. Talei and my life has changed. He clearly and quickly explained the slow imbalance which had happened in my lips and face over time and we planned for a lip lift procedure. I did this under local anesthesia with no pain at all! He's the ONLY surgeon who can do this with NO scarring. All other doctors I reviewed had scars on at least half their patients. Now all of my friends in plastic surgery and fashion compliment me much more and they have no idea what I had done. This man is AMAZING!!!!

I went to Dr Talei for under eye filler using Restylane. Dr Talei was very thorough with each step in the process and made me feel very comfortable. The procedure was quick and painless! My under eyes have always been an insecurity for me and when I looked in the mirror after he was done I was beyond impressed with his work. I felt more confident and beautiful. I was able to leave his office and go right back to work! I highly recommend Dr Talei. He's friendly, has a lovely staff and truly cares about making his patients happy.

My experience with Dr. Ben Talei was very positive. He answered all my questions prior to the procedure and made me feel very comfortable. Before meeting him, I had heard all the rave about his work, and I am so glad I went through with the visit. I was very insecure with my "eleven" deep wrinkles in between my eyebrows, he was very fast and clean with this procedure and I couldn't be more grateful for this minor adjustment that has brought me a major confidence boost. Thank you Dr. Talei

I used to see Dr Ben in New York and now I fly to LA to see him. I have no room for error and he is absolutely the only plastic surgeon I trust. Everyone else seems to be out for money. Every time I'm in his waiting room all I hear is praises and how he's the greatest. I completely agree. He's the most talented surgeon I've ever seen. It's worth the flight

I have worked in health care in Los Angeles for over 20 years and have always hesitated in referring plastic surgeons to my clients. Dr. Ben Talei, MD is in a class of his own. I am so pleased to be able to refer to Dr. Talei without hesitation, and consistently receive outstanding feedback on him. Dr. Talei brings a wealth of experience and exceptional skill, along with cutting edge techniques to his practice. Not only does Dr. Talei excel in every facet of care, but he has also cultivated a warm, kind and patient bedside manner that is second to none. Dr. Talei's office is a dynamic patient focused environment, I urge you to visit him!
