Los Angeles Cleft Lip Repair Surgery
A cleft lip is birth defect where a child’s upper lip is not fully formed together, causing a cleft. A cleft lip can leave a baby with a noticeably deformed lip. At the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery, Dr. Ben Talei, a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon, is who patients turn to for the best results in cleft lip repair surgery, as well as birthmark removal.
Left untreated a cleft lip could cause a child a whole host of issues. Cosmetically, the lip and often times the nose too, would remain deformed, bringing unnecessary teasing and ridicule. Beyond that, children can suffer from feeding issues to speech impairment. Dr. Talei performs cleft lip repair surgery to suture the two sides of the lip together and repair the deformed nose. While this may sound like a simple procedure, it may take several procedures to achieve the desired results.
Dr. Talei does not have a one-size-fits-all mindset for his surgical procedures. Each patient is examined and prescribed the best form of treatment. This is based on the patient’s needs and achievable results.
Dr. Talei is one of the most sought-after physicians for birth defect treatments like cleft lip repair surgery. He has dual fellowship training in facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, vascular birthmarks and congenital anomalies with laser surgery. He can provide dramatic improvement to your child’s lip and other affected areas.
