Beverly Hills Bell’s Palsy Treatment
Bell’s palsy is a condition that can cause weakness or paralysis of one side of the face. This can leave patients with problems, both cosmetically and with the daily function of their face. Dr. Ben Talei, a dual board certified plastic surgeon at the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery is a highly skilled facial plastic surgeon that offers state-of-the-art Bell’s palsy treatment as well as facial reconstructive surgery procedures.
Bell’s palsy is one of the leading causes of facial paralysis. This disorder is typically the result of damage to the nerves that control the muscles in the face. This type of damage can cause facial distortion and imbalance.
Not only can this cause cosmetic irregularities, but it can also affect the function of the features on the face. For the eyelid, this can potentially cause eye damage. In the mouth, this can affect one’s ability to chew, drink, speak and even smile.
Dr. Talei can perform several procedures to restore symmetry and functionality to the face. The minimally invasive procedures include Botox injections to the unaffected side. Beyond this, Dr. Talei can perform a variety of surgical procedures to restore facial balance and functionality.
Dr. Talei has dual fellowship training in facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery and vascular birthmarks and congenital anomalies with laser surgery. His training in facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, gives him the edge in a procedure like this.
