In Surpassing 200 Groundbreaking Hairline Lowering Procedures, Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Dr. Ben Talei Allows Patients to Feel Confident in the Success of the Surgery
In a recent interview with The Aesthetic Channel of Modern Medicine, Dr. Ben Talei of The Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery, who has performed over 200 forehead lowering procedures, explains how the latest modifications in forehead reduction provides the most natural outcome possible, helping patients feel confident about the success of their surgery.
In the 90-minute procedure, the scalp is advanced 2 cm to 4 cm, excess skin is cut away, and the incision line is closed with tension-free sutures and covered with hair transplants, for nearly invisible results.
I remain committed to refining my skills and surpassing expectations, so to know that patients feel confident about the outcome of their surgery at my practice is a true mark of success, says Dr. Ben Talei.
Though not a new procedure, hairline and forehead lowering, reduction and shortening have found many individuals feeling apprehensive in years passed, whether due to the lack of experienced doctors or worries about scarring and unnatural results, as explained by Dr. Ben Talei in a recent interview with The Aesthetic Channel.
“I remain committed to refining my skills and surpassing expectations, so to know that patients feel confident about the outcome of their surgery at my Beverly Hills practice is a true mark of success,” says Dr. Ben Talei.
Yet, his modifications in technique and overall approach mean that most candidates can now expect a very natural outcome. Having performed over 200 forehead-lowering procedures over the past five years, all of them women or transgender patients between the ages of 20 and 60, Dr. Talei’s experience and elite surgical skill allows those with taller, more prominent foreheads to feel confident about their surgery.
Dr. Talei releases more of a patient’s scalp, which allows it to move forward with less tension and without damaging the scalp. To anchor the patient’s new hairline, he opts for temporary dissolvable sutures that are placed in tiny holes within the patient’s bone.
This technique represents a shift from previously used anchors, which were noticeable beneath the skin, and caused pain and potential hair loss. Furthermore, the precise placement of the incision coupled with Dr. Talei’s anchoring technique dramatically reduces discomfort associated with previous forehead re-positioning and allows hair to grow back through the incision. While results are permanent, Dr. Talei explains that a small percentage of patients may seek further enhancement through a facelift, hair transplant procedure or a series of injections such as platelet-rich-plasma (PRP), nano fat or emulsified fat to soften the hairline and promote hair growth.
