Cosmetic Procedures For the Face Beverly Hills, CA

Have you recently undergone dramatic weight loss? If done so in a healthy manner, we applaud you.

If you have experienced dramatic weight loss from bariatric surgery or diet and exercise, plastic surgery can be your final step to a more confident and contoured you.

Frustrated with Rosacea? Learn Your Treatment Options

Woman Receiving Laser Treatments Beverly Hills CA

Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition that affects up to 16 million Americans. It is also a condition that can be very difficult to live with. While there are various types and severity of rosacea, this skin disorder is known for its highly visible symptoms that cause redness, bumps and flushing on the face, neck and chest. Rosy cheeks may be cute on a toddler, but when an adult suddenly looks like they’ve had a bad sunburn or acne flare-up, it can be quite embarrassing. In fact, chronic rosacea can lead to permanent redness, large pores, thickened skin and visible capillaries throughout the face – all features that can steal your self-confidence and even cause you to avoid social situations. … Continue reading

Facial Procedures Beverly Hills CA

The acne-ridden years of adolescence can be painful to think about. But what if you had a visible reminder of those self-conscious pimples every time you looked in the mirror as an adult. Acne scarring is common, and it can be quite severe for some people. Acne scars are often called pits or depressions in the skin. Some acne scars have a rough, “orange-peel” appearance.

How Antioxidant Rich Foods Fight Aging Skin

Full and Sliced Apples Beverly Hills CA

You’ve probably heard that eating foods that are rich in antioxidants is good for fighting diseases and boosting your overall health. But did you know that antioxidants can also make a big difference in your skin too? In fact, nourishing your skin from the inside out can be just as effective, if not more effective, than a topical skin care regime. Remember your skin is an organ (the largest one in your body) so it needs to be nourished properly to maintain its ideal condition. And healthy skin is typically attractive skin too! … Continue reading

The Perfect Perks of Profound Microneedling

Woman Receiving Facial Profound Microneedling Beverly Hills CA

Microneedling is one of the most effective treatments in non-surgical facial rejuvenation. It involves purposely damaging the skin through tiny sterile needles in an effort to trigger new collagen production and other building blocks of healthy, youthful skin. It is often called “collagen induction therapy.” When it comes to anti-aging, collagen is a coveted goal for smooth, supple and confident skin. … Continue reading

Burn Scar Treatment: Put the Past Behind You

woman smiling to the camera

Facial scars of any kind can be disfiguring. But when the scar is a result of a traumatic burn injury, it can be especially upsetting. Facial burn scars can not only be a physical reminder of a painful event, but they can also form in ways that limit your facial functions, such as your ability to smile, chew, drink or open and close your eyes.

Skin burns can be a result of chemicals, the sun, radiation and electricity. Burns cause skin cells to die. When the skin is damaged, the body naturally tries to heal itself by producing a protein called collagen. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen in a uniform or natural-looking pattern. As the skin heals, it is common to see areas of thickness and discoloration. This is how scars form. … Continue reading

Baby with a Port Wine Stain on Top of Head Los Angeles

Many of us are born with a few moles or a small brown birthmark somewhere on the body. These skin imperfections make us unique and are usually not a source of insecurity. However, when a birthmark is large or bright in color, it can draw unwanted attention and trigger low self-esteem, especially in kids.

There are many types of birthmarks. One of the most distinctive or prominent birthmarks is a Port Wine Stain, which is characterized by its red or purple color and high visibility on the face, neck, arms, shoulders and scalp. If you have a child who was born with a port wine stain, you may be asking whether it is safe and worth it to seek treatment for this unsightly discoloration. … Continue reading

Valued Reasons to Invest in Plastic Surgery

Beverly Hills CA Plastic Surgeon for Necks

For most, investing in a cosmetic procedure or facial plastic surgery demands careful consideration.

Sagging Brows Getting You Down?

Forehead and Brow Lift Beverly Hills, CA

One of the most frustrating (and devastating) effects of aging is sagging skin. This occurs when the skin loses collagen and elasticity and is more easily defeated by gravity over time. To make matters worse, sagging skin on the face is often the most significant and of course most noticed. While many people complain about their sagging cheeks and bulging jaw line, the effects of sagging skin can also be found further up in the face. In fact, when the forehead and brow skin droops, it can cause a host of unwanted flaws around the eyes. This can begin in the 30s and 40s for many men and women. … Continue reading

Bothered by Bunny Lines? Consider Botox

Woman Receiving Botox Injections Beverly Hills CA

When it comes to the aging face, there are some trending areas of wrinkles and fine lines that we want to erase. Discussions are often centered around the “11’s” (vertical lines between your eyebrows), crow’s feet, smile lines, forehead lines and nasolabial folds. But what about bunny lines? Bunny lines refer to the horizontal or diagonal wrinkles we get on the side of the nose when we smile or scrunch up our nose. Bunny lines may sound cute, but just like crow’s feet or forehead wrinkles, they can be an unwanted sign of an aging face. … Continue reading

Our Patient Reviews

Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery

4.8 / 5.0

Based on 67 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 !

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.
