When Facial Fillers are No Longer Enough

Older Woman

Facial fillers and facelifts are both popular ways to turn back the hands of time. However, while fillers and facelifts are effective at creating a more youthful appearance, they do so in vastly different ways. Fillers is a non-surgical procedure with no downtime, yet the results are only temporary. On the other hand, a facelift involves more invasive surgical techniques, but the outcome is more permanent or longer-lasting.

To no surprise, the cost of these treatments can also differ. However, if you’ve been using fillers for several years, it may be time to add up your expense of repeated treatments and temporary results and compare it to a one-time facelift surgery investment. … Continue reading

Woman Outside

Aging is inevitable. As we get older, there are notable changes that occur within our skin and outward appearance. Your facial skin is often the first indicator of aging.

At The Beverly Hills Center for Plastic Surgery, we are fully equipped to help reverse wrinkles and other complexion issues, but we also value the importance of educating patients on how they can prevent an early onset of facial aging and delay the need for these cosmetic treatment or procedures. Here are some everyday changes you can make in your lifestyle to keep your youthful skin longer:

Why is Lip Lift Surgery So Popular?

Beautiful Lips

Getting older comes with many unwanted changes within our skin. Aging causes the skin to lose volume and elasticity, which can lead to cosmetic concerns throughout the face. Your lips are no exception. In fact, the lips can become thin and wrinkled as well as lose their definition and corner lift. For women, aging lips can also mean a loss of sensuality and attraction. It’s no wonder that lip lift surgery is most popular in middle-aged women. … Continue reading

Don’t Let Your Eyelids Age You

Are you plagued by a fatigued appearance because of your sagging or puffy eyelids? Despite feeling energetic or young, the aged appearance of the eyes can tell a different story. Over time, it is common to develop bulging fat and excess skin along the eyelids. While acute eye puffiness can be a result of allergies, dehydration or lack of sleep, when your puffy eye bags take up permanent residence, it is likely a sign of aging, and it may be time to see a plastic surgeon. … Continue reading

Lift Your Brows with Minimally-Invasive Surgery

Eyebrow Lift

As we age, the brows can lose their ideal position and youthful arch. Drooping brows can create deep wrinkles in the forehead and cause the eyes to look tired or sad. A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, can address drooping or ptotic brows caused by aging. Not only is the brow restored to a more youthful position, but this procedure also creates a more “awake” appearance within the eyes and softens wrinkles in the forehead. Although a brow lift involves the release of muscles across the forehead and between the eyes, a skilled plastic surgeon is careful to avoid relaxing the muscles that would impede natural facial expressions.

Should I Consider Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is a common procedure in facial plastic surgery for both men and women. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most intricate and challenging cosmetic procedures, which leads many patients to seek revision surgery. It takes a skilled facial plastic surgeon to correct a previous rhinoplasty and achieve ideal results.

While any type of plastic surgery has the potential for complications or poor results, the nose is especially vulnerable due its central position on the face as well as the delicate tissues, bone and cartilage that are involved. Rhinoplasty can involve subpar techniques during surgery or poor healing after the procedure. It is not always within the control of the surgeon, and every patient is unique. The most common reasons that patients seek revision rhinoplasty include: … Continue reading

What is the Right Age to Get a Facelift?

Beverly Hills CA Deep Plane Facelift

Are you tired of investing in anti-aging treatments that wear off after a few weeks or months? Perhaps you are ready for a more permanent solution but think you are too young for facelift surgery. While many people believe that a facelift is best performed in your fifties or sixties, this isn’t always the case. In fact, your chronological age should not guide your decision in whether to take advantage of facelift surgery.

Each patient has unique skin that ages at different rates. Instead of waiting for another birthday to consider facelift surgery, it is better to focus on the condition of your skin, which will often be more influenced by your genetics, lifestyle choices and other factors rather than your age. For example, if you have a grandmother or aunt with deep wrinkles and sagging skin at an early age, you may be a candidate for a facelift before you reach your fifties or sixties. … Continue reading

Aging Eyebrows

No part of your body is exempt from getting older. In fact, even your eyebrows age! While it may not seem like a big deal, the change in the shape, fullness and contour of your eyebrows can drastically impact the way your eyes and upper face appear. In fact, aging brows can subtly add years to your overall complexion. Here’s a closer look at what to look for as your brows age and what you can do to help rejuvenate your eyes.

During adolescence, most of us were learning how to tame our thick full eyebrows. While the trend for attractive eyebrows have changed over the decades, one thing remains, youthful eyebrows tend to be fuller and longer. Unfortunately, what we see as we age are eyebrows that become sparse and patchy. The tail and front of the brow will also tend to recede, and it is not uncommon to find white or grey hairs in the eyebrows as you reach your 50’s or 60’s. The loss of hair color in the brows will also cause them to be coarser than they used to be. Finally, and most notably, the eyebrows lose their youthful arch as we age, which can pull down the eyes and make them look droopy or sad. … Continue reading

Our Patient Reviews

4.8 / 5.0

Based on 66 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

Anya Golden

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 !

He is very compassionate and immediately understood my problems and helped me fix them. He is extremely knowledgeable, talented and generous. I've never met a doctor like him and I am beyond grateful to have him as my doctor. He's results say everything about how talented he truly is. He's the best at what he does!!! He's friendly and warm and his staff is really nice too. I recommend him to everyone who's looking for a good doctor. I only trust him with my face!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
