Could You Benefit From a Forehead Lift?

Face Of Woman - Beverly Hills CA Plastic Surgeons

As we age, lines and deep creases form in areas of our face that make expressions on a daily basis. While smile lines and crow’s feet are common concerns, the aging process also significantly impacts the forehead. Deep creases and drooping tissues within the forehead can make a person look sad, angry and older than they really are.

Unfortunately, when collagen depletion and gravity take their toil on the forehead, the eyebrows and eyelids are greatly affected as well. The good news is that by surgically lifting the forehead, a dramatic improvement can be seen in the eyes and entire upper face.

Reclaiming Desirable Lips

Beverly Hills Center for Plastic and Laser Surgery logo

We know that the natural aging process can result in sagging tissues, diminished skin elasticity and loss of collagen and fat pads in the face. When considering the lips, these effects can be quite detrimental. To understand why aging lips are so undesirable, it is important to have a good grasp on what attributes make the lips attractive.

There are many features of the mouth that work together to create ideal, desirable lips. First and foremost, lips should have sufficient volume or be “plump.” They should also have a subtle upward turn at the outer corners. The lips look more attractive when there are no fine lines around them, such as smoker’s lines or marionette lines that occur from prolonged muscle use and sagging tissues. Finally, the lips should be smooth and have defined borders. This includes a visible “Cupid’s bow” on the upper lip. Unfortunately, all of these desirable lip traits are threatened as we age.

Improving Your Nose Without a Nose Job

Nasal Procedures Beverly Hills CA

Despite its central position on your face, the nose should never attract attention. The nose should be in proper balance and proportion within the face to allow more desirable facial features (the lips or eyes) to be highlighted.

Rhinoplasty can certainly alter the shape or size of the nose to improve its appearance. However, not everyone wants to undergo nose surgery, and there are times when altering other facial features can improve the appearance of the nose. From liquid rhinoplasty to chin implants, patients can gain a more attractive nose without a traditional nose job.

Turning Back “The Hands of Time”

Beverly Hills Center for Plastic and Laser Surgery logo

When it comes to discussing ways to delay or reverse the signs of aging, the face is undoubtedly the hottest topic. However, just like the face, the hands are also noticeable to others and can suffer from the natural aging process. Patients often encounter dark spots (or sun spots) on the back of the hands and their tendons, bones and veins become more prominent as collagen and fat diminish.

Do You Have a Weak Chin?

Face of Woman - Beverly Hills CA Plastic Surgeon

You may not realize it, but the appearance of your chin plays a significant role in how attractive your overall face is. While you may not hear people comment on how beautiful someone’s chin looks, its size, definition and proportion to the rest of the face can make a dramatic difference in one’s profile and overall facial appearance. Therefore, chin augmentation represents one of the most overlooked yet influential facial cosmetic procedures available. It is a relatively simple procedure that can restore balance between the nose and the chin by improving the appearance of a “weak chin.”

Laser Technology

How Do Lasers Tighten The Skin?
Today patients have the opportunity to erase wrinkles and tighten their facial skin without going under the knife. While fillers and injectables are widely used and typically well understood, there is another method of skin tightening that is highly effective. Laser technology has brought patients a minimally invasive treatment option for turning back the hands of time.
How do lasers work on the skin?
Laser skin tightening systems utilize an infrared light source to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface. This causes the skin to contract or tighten. Results are immediately noticeable; however, further improvement in skin tightening can be seen over the course of the following 3 months in most cases. Rest assured that laser skin tightening is safe and FDA approved for the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. It improves the laxity of the skin that is commonly lost with age. It is common for patients to need more than one treatment (spaced one month apart) to achieve optimal results.
What are the benefits of lasers?
While the results do not compare to a surgical facelift, patients benefit from a procedure that requires no downtime or recovery. It is also a quick and virtually painless treatment when used with a local anesthetic. This comfort and convenience factor can outweigh the more dramatic results obtained by plastic surgery for many patients.
Who is a candidate?
Laser skin tightening is an excellent non-surgical solution for adults who have mild to moderate signs of aging, including sagging skin and wrinkles around the face and neck. It can be used for men and women of all skin types and skin tones. In general, patients between the ages of 30 and 60 benefit most. However, if you have severe skin laxity, a facelift may be more appropriate.

Ready to regain a firm, youthful complexion without the cost and recovery of surgery? Schedule a consult with Dr. Ben Talei to learn what laser skin tightening could do for you. We have invested in the most proven and top-ranked laser systems in the industry.

Understanding Cleft Lip Repair

Cleft lips are a type of facial deformity in which the upper lip does not fully form and close during fetal development in the womb.

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

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 !
