Board Certified.
Dual Fellowship Trained.
Facial Plastic Surgeon.


Dr. Talei specializes in a large number of facial and neck rejuvenation procedures. He is able to customize treatments for his patients, ranging from the most advanced to the least invasive of procedures. For patients seeking a very rapid recovery a specific concerns about their jawline, chin and neck, we offer the Weekend Neck Lift.

What is a Weekend Neck Lift?

This is a combination of small procedures lasting roughly one hour. The entire procedure can be done under local anesthesia with no pain at all. The benefit to local anesthesia is less swelling and bruising along with no downtime associated with twilight or general anesthesia.

The entire procedure is performed through a small, hidden incision under the chin. There are several combinations of treatments used to obtain outstanding outcomes depending on the patient’s anatomy and needs. The most common is Chin Augmentation followed by Submental LipoContouring or LipoSuction. Either Laser Liposuction or Traditional LipoContouring can be performed depending on the neck type.

Which Patients are Good Candidates for a Weekend or Rapid Necklift?

This procedure is most suitable for patients coming in complaining of a “Double Chin”, mild “Turkey Neck” or simply, fat and fatness under the chin. It is especially helpful to patients bothered by the appearance of their under-chin and neck in photos, which may have worsened over the years.

What makes the results so significant is the addition of Chin Augmentation, which can help rejuvenate and refine the jawline in the appropriate patients. There are several methods of Chin Augmentation, which vary depending on the patient. The options vary from temporary to permanent and can even help lighten the Jowls in patients with a Pre-Jowl Sulcus or shadow apparent.

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!
