Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty Surgery

Many people seek to have a rhinoplasty because the nose is the most defining feature of the face. At the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery, Dr. Ben Talei, a dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon, specializes in nose surgery that can improve the overall appearance and function of the nose with natural results. Dr. Talei has a keen eye and understanding of the harmony and balance of the entire face, not just the nose. He offers a host of cutting-edge rhinoplasty procedures that can provide nominal changes to dramatic improvements in your cosmetic appearance and functionality.

Corrections That Can Be Made With Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is a procedure that can address various aesthetic and functional concerns. Here are common corrections that Dr. Talei can make with rhinoplasty surgery:

  • Nasal Size and Proportion: Rhinoplasty can be performed to reduce the overall size of the nose.
  • Nasal Bridge: Rhinoplasty can address a prominent nasal hump by carefully reshaping the bridge of the nose to create a smoother profile.
  • Nasal Tip: Rhinoplasty can refine and reshape the nasal tip, addressing bulbous or drooping tips.
  • Nostrils: Rhinoplasty can alter the size or shape of the nostrils to achieve better balance.
  • Septum and Breathing Issues: If there are issues with the nasal septum, such as deviation or structural abnormalities, septoplasty can be performed to improve breathing.
  • Turbinate Reduction: Enlarged turbinates can be addressed during rhinoplasty to improve nasal airflow.
  • Crooked Nose: Rhinoplasty can correct a crooked or deviated nose, creating a more symmetrical appearance.
  • Post-Traumatic Deformities: Rhinoplasty is often used to address nasal deformities resulting from injuries or trauma.
  • Revision Rhinoplasty: In some cases, individuals may seek revision rhinoplasty to correct issues from a previous nose surgery.
  • Preserving Ethnic Features: Rhinoplasty can be performed to enhance the nose while respecting and preserving ethnic characteristics.
  • Improving Breathing: Rhinoplasty can have functional benefits by addressing breathing difficulties, especially when combined with septoplasty.


What is the Difference Between Open and Closed Rhinoplasty?

Just as no two people are alike, no two rhinoplasty surgeries are the same. Dr. Talei does not use a cookie-cutter approach but looks at each patient individually. He will listen to your goals for the surgery and plan the best approach that improves the appearance of your nose. Dr. Talei will give you the most natural results while also restoring balance and harmony to the face. The main difference between open and closed rhinoplasty lies in the approach Dr. Talei uses to access and reshape the nasal structures. Both techniques are commonly employed in rhinoplasty procedures, and the choice between them depends on the complexity of the surgery and the surgeon’s preference.

Open Rhinoplasty

In open rhinoplasty, a small incision is made across the columella, the strip of skin between the nostrils. This incision allows Dr. Talei to lift the skin, providing a full view of the nasal structures. The open approach provides excellent visibility and direct access to the nasal framework. This is particularly advantageous for complex or revision rhinoplasty procedures. While scarring is minimal and typically well-concealed, there will be a small scar on the columella. Open rhinoplasty is often preferred for cases requiring significant modifications or when a detailed view of the nasal anatomy is crucial.

Closed Rhinoplasty

In a closed rhinoplasty procedure, all incisions are made inside the nostrils. There is no external incision on the columella. Dr. Talei is part of a small group of surgeons nationwide who perform the majority of their rhinoplasties closed (without any external incisions or scars). It provides patients with less bruising, less swelling, faster healing time, and virtually no sign that a rhinoplasty was performed. He is also one of a few surgeons in the country to have advanced the field of 3D telescopic rhinoplasty, which provides high-definition visualization of structures that were difficult to access with older techniques. What this means for the patient is less trauma, less bruising and a better overall result.

Schedule a Rhinoplasty Consultation at the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery

The rhinoplasty consultation is a crucial step in considering and planning for nose surgery. During this consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your goals, expectations and concerns with Dr. Talei. He will review your medical history, including any pre-existing medical conditions, allergies, medications and previous surgeries, to assess your overall health and ensure you are a suitable candidate for rhinoplasty.

During the consultation, Dr. Talei will thoroughly examine your nose, both externally and internally. He will assess your nasal structure, skin thickness and overall facial harmony. Special attention will be given to any functional issues, such as breathing difficulties. Information about the rhinoplasty procedure will be provided, including the surgical techniques that may suit your case. He will also explain the potential risks and complications associated with the surgery.

Remember that a successful rhinoplasty consultation involves open communication between you and the surgeon. It’s essential to feel comfortable and confident before moving forward with your procedure.
