Eyelid Lift Versus Brow Lift

Woman Profile

Does the appearance of your eyes make you look tired, old or angry? A plastic surgeon can help. Many patients know they need rejuvenation through their eyes but are unsure as to whether they qualify for an eyelid lift, brow lift – or both!

While a brow lift and blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) are both procedures that enhance your appearance and combat the signs of facial aging, they are two very different procedures that are performed on two different aspects of the face. Here is a closer look at what each of these facial plastic surgeries entail and what they are intended to address. … Continue reading

Your Double Chin Got You Down?

Beverly Hills Center Female Patient Before and After Chin Kybella Injections Treatment

We all critique ourselves, especially when it comes to our facial appearance. According to a survey from the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly 67% of people named their “double chin” as one of their most bothersome flaws. In fact, study participants were equally concerned by their double chin as they were about wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Until recently, fixing a double chin meant going under the knife for plastic surgery. However, a youthful and contoured chin and jawline can be achieved by a simple injectable formula called Kybella®. … Continue reading

Tired of Your Turkey Neck? Consider Platysmasplasty

Neck Lift

Both men and women can suffer from the dreaded “turkey neck” appearance, which is marked by an unattractive bulge of sagging skin underneath the chin. This can make patients look much older than they really are and even cause them to avoid pictures or hold their chin with their hand to hide their “turkey neck.” Fortunately, there is a facial plastic surgery procedure that can reverse these sagging tissues. A platysmasplasty (often combined with a neck lift) can effectively tighten the tissues and muscles underneath the chin while reducing the sagging skin in the area. … Continue reading

Our Patient Reviews

Hedy Hobbs

I have done an abundant amount of research over the years regarding different types of face lift procedures, looking at pictures of their outcomes and I kept circling back to Dr. Talei – so needless to say, I was prepared with a list of questions when I went for my consultation. In order to leave a deep impression on someone, you need to make them feel something ... preferably something good. During my visit, all his staff, from front desk to nurses, were polite, respectful and professional. I’ll join the chorus of other reviews from those who found Dr. Talei warm, engaging and sincere. I will add that he was very candid about what procedures he thought would be best where I would be happy with the results and the pros/cons of alternatives – no snake oil here. As luck would have it, I was also able to see the results of his recommended surgery on one of his recent patients and get all my questions answered. He’s booked for the next 4 months which is a testament to his skill and demand.

Professionalism, prompt and amazing results and 3 words I could sum up Dr. Ben and his staff. When I first visited Dr. Talei I was nervous like anyone would be before a procedure but Ben and his staff made me feel right at home and comfortable. You can tell he has a gift and natural talent. His staff topped of my services with their outstanding customer service , professionalism , knowledge and helpfulness. I had so many questions and concerns and they put me at ease. I highly recommend Dr. Ben and all he does. You wont be disappointed.

Dr. Talei is talented, down-to-earth, warm and an all around great guy. I'd recommend him because you'll get the best experience while in his care and for his talent. He does amazing lip lifts, scar revisions, blemish removal, fillers, you name it. He also cares about making the world a better place through charity work and donating his services to those in need. Really all you could ask for in a human, let alone a doctor. And a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon at that. His staff are super nice and his office is the coolest. I will be going back for angioma removal and acne scar revision, very trustworthy doctor.

I want to give doctor Ben Talei and his team 5 stars, because since the moment I walked in the team was very professional. Doctor super professional and answer all my questions and made me feel very comfortable and relax. GOD BLESS. Truly recommend

I’ve been going to Dr. Ben Talei for several years and I absolutely love him. My favorite procedure I’ve gotten is the profound RF facial. The results were astounding! The downtime was only 2 weeks and I looked five years younger. It was basically a face lift without any surgery. I love how kind, generous, thorough, intelligent, talented, funny, and most importantly conservative Dr. Ben is with his patients. Unlike many doctors who simply want to make the most money from their clients, Ben will never do anything that he feels will not have the best long-term results. If he thinks a procedure will have complications and won’t look good in the long run, he will not perform it. I have recommended Dr Ben to all of my friends and my husband. Everyone has had nothing but the best experience with him and they always come back. Thank you so much Dr. Talei for keeping me looking my best !
