We are all born with unique features and skin types, some more welcome than others. When it comes to birthmarks, most people are fortunate enough to have a light brown or slightly darker area of skin on their legs, arms or other inconspicuous part of their body. However, birthmarks come in many forms. Some present themselves on the face and have a noticeable purple or reddish hue (vascular birthmarks). Facial birthmarks can be a significant source of concern, not necessarily for health reasons but for one’s emotional well-being. School-aged kids are especially prone to the psychological consequences of a vascular birthmark. … Continue reading

Tip Rhinoplasty: A Less Invasive Nose Job

Nasal Procedures Beverly Hills CA

Your nose is the most central and prominent feature on your face. Beyond aesthetics, it plays an integral role in body processes like breathing and tasting. If your nose is unsightly or disproportioned, a rhinoplasty (or nose job) is the preferred procedure for correction. Rhinoplasty is one of the most sought after cosmetic surgeries, for both men and women alike. Even teens can get a nose job once they reach a certain point of growth.

The drawback to a traditional rhinoplasty is the recovery. Rhinoplasty is a very sophisticated and complicated plastic surgery, so it is hard to avoid the subsequent healing period and associated swelling. Because rhinoplasty is so complex, revision rhinoplasty is not uncommon. In effort to avoid these risks and drawbacks, many patients opt to avoid rhinoplasty altogether, particularly if they are afraid their breathing will be compromised. … Continue reading

Why You Need To Know About Hyaluronic Acid

Face of Woman - Beverly Hills CA Plastic Surgeon

When it comes to facial filler injections, there is a common key ingredient across multiple brands and types: hyaluronic acid. While you may be familiar with the term, how much do you really understand about HA and how it works in your go-to filler?

The benefits of hyaluronic acid in terms of youthful skin rely on moisture and firmness. Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide (carbohydrate) that is naturally found in your body. This powerful agent acts as a moisture-binding ingredient within your skin. More specifically, large amounts of HA occupy the space between the skin cells. Your skin needs HA in order to support and hydrate elastin and collagen, the two most influential elements to youthful skin. When your skin has adequate amounts of HA, it is firm, moisturized and plump. Unfortunately, our body naturally loses hyaluronic acid as we age, often beginning as early as the 30’s. … Continue reading

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 !
