Los Angeles Cleft Palate Repair Surgery
Cleft palate is a birth defect that takes place during the early development of a baby. It happens in the mother’s womb, where the palate is not fully formed or closed. Dr. Ben Talei of the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery, is an industry leading physician in the area of cleft palate repair surgery and birthmark removal.
Cleft palate repair surgery requires that tissue is taken from other places to repair and rebuild the unformed palate of the child’s mouth. Each cleft palate varies in degree, shape and size, so there are no textbook procedures for making the repairs. Cleft palate repair surgery may in fact require a series of surgeries to fully repair the birth defect and make the oral and nasal cavities as they should be.
Several factors must be considered before surgery can take place, including the severity and shape of the cleft. The consultation is a vital part of the process when you and Dr. Talei can discuss the goals of the surgery and the ins and outs of the procedure. He can walk you through the recovery time for your child and what to expect from the repair process.
With dual fellowship training in facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery and vascular birthmarks and congenital anomalies with laser surgery, Dr. Talei is one of the most sought- after physicians for cleft palate repair surgery. He is known for marked accuracy and precision in surgery as well as his keen, artistic eye. You can trust that your child is in the best hands.
