Top Triggers of Winter Allergies [Infographic]

During winter time, many people notice their allergies are more active.

This may trigger an allergic reaction. Dr. Monica Tadros, NJ based plastic surgeon located in Englewood, NJ, has released this infographic summarizing top triggers of winter allergies.

Featured on Celebrity Before & Afters: Melissa Gorga’s Nose Job Scandal

Whenever something scandalous happens on The Real Housewives (which is literally all the time), we as viewers and gossip hungry gluttons can hardly wait for the matriarch of Bravo drama, Andy Cohen and his all too honest hour of Watch What Happens Live to give us all the dirt on the dirty details.

In this recent season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, there are homcomings and new comers; new ventures and old friendships rekindled. It seems as if Teresa’s emotional homecoming was nothing short of sweet and welcoming. Her friendship with Jacqueline has been restored in true Teresa fashion, sweeping everything under the rug and calling for a new beginning. Jacqueline, as deeply rooted her emotions are, seems to be more than okay with how things are going and appears to be openly accepting of the new (old-ish) Teresa.

As for the family, Teresa still isn’t speaking to cousins Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. However, her relationship with sister-in-law Melissa Gorga seems to have left the past in the past and are (almost) like two peas in a pod (notice we say almost).

Melissa Gorga, alongside longtime RHONJ superfan and actor Michael Rapaport joined Andy Cohen on this past weeks round up on the WWHL set. Discussions varied from Teresa’s hairline being “the best in the business” to post face lift newbie Siggly Flicker.

However, the real scoop was served up when Cohen digs up some old dirt; the longtime forgotten frenemy of basically everyone in the cast, Kim DePaola- also known as- Kim D, when a caller asks Melissa if her new boutique “Envy” was in competition with Kim D’s “Posche”. In which Melissa responds in true housewives fashion, with pity, poise and oh so much shade- “No, I think every now and again, a rat needs to come out of the sewer for a piece of cheese.” Ohh, burn! Is Melissa insinuating that Kim D is fanning the fire for her 15 seconds of (semi) fame, yet again?

Andy Cohen replies in his usual no holds barred manner, stirring up the pot, “There was an interview with her [Kim D] in InTouch, she said your erlationship with Teresa is fake. She said you’ve had four nose jobs, on and on.”

But of course, Melissa sticks true to her clap back, “Like I said, every now and again a rat needs to come out of the sewer for a piece of cheese Andy.”

Back in 2013, a “close source” to Melissa had claimed, “She DID have a nose job! Her plastic surgeon is the same one Kathy used…Melissa’s ex-trainer trained her at home and her nose was wrapped up from surgery when she went to go train her. Melissa also gets fillers in her face and her lips.”

According to Radar Online, another secret source claims Gorga had not one, but two nose jobs. Furthermore, the source states that she had gotten the work done for free, as the surgeon was under the impression that she would promote his work to her fans.

At first, looking at photos of Melissa, new and old, you can definitely tell that something seems to be different, a bit off. Believe it or not, makeup can work wonders and the magic of contouring is a beautiful thing. But, after much speculation, makeup can only do so much.

Take a look for yourself!

It seems as if the bridge and tip of her nose has been slimmed down along with the dramatic difference in her side profile. However, we can still noticably see that her nostrils have remained the same shape and size, yet appears less prominant.

Whether or not Gorga has actually gone under the knife to tweak her nose, the possible changes that were made seem to suit her in a beautifully natural way. Dr. Monica Tadros, a distinguished Facial Plastic Surgeon and Reconstructive Surgeon has spoken about the important factors that must be taken into consideration for a proper and effective nose job. When discussing form and function, the Rhinoplasty specialist states, “That third level is understanding that the nose, how it relates to the rest of the face is important but also how it conveys a certain sense of character in its persons identity…Our face defines our emotions.”

Melissa seems to have maintained an appearance that cohesively blends with who she is and her character. Whether her nose is new or not, she is still able to hold it high and not worry about what her haters are saying. #TeamGorga !

Kaley Cuoco’s Impact on the Plastic Surgery Industry

Kaley Cuoco, leading lady and television star of the hit syndicated sitcom The Big Bang Theory (BBT) has confirmed the media’s suspicions that she has in fact turned to plastic surgery and cosmetic enhancement to solidify her aesthetic image in the public eye. In a recent interview with Women’s Health Cuoco revealed, “Years ago, I had my nose done. And my boobs. Best thing I ever did.”

Fans of the show and even the general masses are shocked by her admission. Traditionally speaking, actors and actresses of the past would never confess or acknowledge their choice to go under the knife or undergo a little noninvasive maintenance. However, modern day headliners and social influencers have no shame in their Botox game- especially since sometimes these celebrities go a bit overboard and the lack of facial expressions and movements shows it’s written all over their injected faces- they try and beat us to the punch.

With plastic surgery becoming progressively common, nonexclusive to young Hollywood, why are individuals still hesitant to divulge the truth behind the work they’ve done”? Pressure to keep up with the fillers is causing the latest trend-setting, youthifying facial treatments and nonsurgical beautification processes being identified as simply “routine”.   While we commend Kaley for her honesty, there are still famous stars who will never own up to the ideals of being au natural. Celebrity Before & Afters has been dedicated to analyzing the tell-tale signs of cosmetic solutions and procedures among the media entertainers.

Dr. Monica Tadros is a distinguished Facial Plastic Surgeon & Reconstructive Surgeon and Educator. She has offices located on Park Avenue in Manhattan and in Bergen County, New Jersey. Dr. Tadros specializes in rhinoplasty, sinus surgery, and plastic surgery in NJ. She is one of a small number of surgeons to attain dual board certification in Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery and Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and has combined the two specialties in her unique practice of aesthetic medicine. Here she helps us find the wrinkles in detecting what to look for when wondering if they did or didn’t have plastic surgery.

How To Identify A Nip-Tucked, Plucked or Smoothed Out Celeb

  • Scars or Skin Tags: Ever wonder what happened to Enrique’s mole? Samsies. It didn’t just vanish, it had to be surgically removed. Sometimes it is something minor like the abstraction of skin abnormalities for health concerns or aesthetic reasons, but regardless the disappearing act of scars or beauty marks are an easy giveaway. It’s all in the details. Check for the visibility of facelift scars (e.g., or other facial deformities/incisions) or locations near or targeting the hips and/or midsection for liposuction marks. Scars caused by breast implants appear under the breast tissue or close to the armpits.
  • Puffiness: When lips or cheeks seem fuller or puffy, there is a solid chance some type of formula has been injected inside, inflating those infamous duck-ish features.
  • Sharp & Precise Angles:Facial fillers help to add more structure and balance. So when you are seeing individuals with severe turns and ridges on their face or extreme curves sculpting their body, a needle is never too far behind.
  • Fixed expression:You know when girls snap those ‘typical’ selfies, acting all surprised, yet sexy and unassuming, well what if their manifestation wasn’t just a filtered performance at all? A staple, frozen expression highlighting the contours we all deem attractive and desire, basically just leaves us wondering, Disport? Restylane? Juvederm? Botox?

  • Body Parts Defying Gravity: Sagging is a part of evolution and the unavoidable aging process. Whether it’s supple, perky breasts or voluminous, lifted skin, if things don’t hang low it is most likely because they’re being held up.
  • Carry-on Luggage:  Disproportionate? Off-balance? Makes absolute zero sense… For instance, a five-foot, 87 lbs. woman with double D boobies, usually requires the assistance of a board-certified professional or physician.
  • Don’t Match the Rest:Like choosing the wrong shade of bronzer, this is a frequent error. Although neck tucks or hand procedures are now not only possible, but also popular, many individuals have forgotten to pay close attention to their maturing, stretched out, and often thinning skin on smaller areas.
  • Constant Fluctuation or Drastic Makeover:We aren’t just talking about bad hair days and good hair days. Despite scientific data which does display that one’s hormones, mood, diet, daily activities, environment and/or medications can and will affect one’s aesthetic, even by the hour, dramatic changes overnight simply are not conceivable- unless parts of you are not really you that is.

Just give it up already… We’ve examined the evidence and the obvious, yet most individuals are still denying having had plastic surgery.

However, when your transformation goes beyond a clean diet and exercise program, the crowd is going to speculate. We understand it is your story to tell, and I’m sure you have your own personal reasons, but the denials lead to people gossiping, and more often than not, unflattering excuses and alternative explanations.

Statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that from 2000 to 2015 the number of cosmetic procedures (surgery plus minimally invasive) per year in the U.S. has jumped from 7.4 million to 15.9 million, which is about one procedure for every 16 adults in the U.S. So look around and do the math! More celebrities, especially those who rely heavily on their money-making faces need to take a page out of Cuoco’s book before the paparazzi splashes it across a rag-mag.

Featured on Art Bodega: BellaFill Solution

Anti-Acne & Anti-Aging

There is only one thing that competes with the uncomfortable concern of acne- and that’s acne scarring. Unsightly adult acne, more often than not, leads to having to deal with irreversible skin damage, until now!

The unexpected solution sweeping the nation is the latest cosmetic injectable facial filler Bellafill. If you are someone who suffers from the ever-lasting psychological effects and physical reactions from acne conditions, Bellafill is the answer to your prayers.

A distressing quantity of individuals, estimated between 40 million to 50 million Americans, have been affected by some form of acne, and not just teenagers. Individuals seek out a variety of “proper” treatments for this embarrassing dermal ailment in hopes to rid themselves of acne scars once and for all. Whether at-home popping, antibiotics, creams, ointments, cleansers or other remedies to cure, those who experience scars caused from acne result in never forgetting some of their most traumatizing years.

Hard To Treat: Acne to Acne Scarring

Acne and acne scarring is quite hard to treat due to a large sum of factors including plugging of pores and oil production, unhealthy diet, genetics, sun exposure, poor skin-care, etc.

Inflammation may occur from mild to the most severe cases; research indicates that even on the surface of the skin of acne patients where one doesn’t see any reminisce of pimples, breakouts and blemishes, there are inciting elements on a molecular level which never diminish. Assorted bacteria and hormones, particularly androgens (the male hormones present in men and women) will require additional attention. They overstimulate the oil glands and hair follicles in the skin, causing communal acne flares.

BellaFill Fights Back!

Dr. Monica Tadros stands behind the most revolutionary formulated product to treat acne scars- Bellafill. Bellafill is taking the cosmetic and medical industry by storm as it is the only dermal facial filler on the market to have been approved by the FDA for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars of the cheek in patients over the age of 21. As an injectable filler made up of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), Bellafill may also be used in conjunction with other alternative forms of treatment, such as laser resurfacing or chemical peels, for a more comprehensive result!

Dr. Monica Tadros injects Bellafill under the scars to stimulate an individual’s own collagen to fill the scar. The unique injectable gel, comprised of tiny microspheres integrates and promotes new tissue growth. These spheres are smaller than a human hair, barely visible to the eye, but they are prevailing in collagen production. Patients can see improvement immediately, but the true results occur as the skin continues to get smoother as your own body fills in the scars.

Introducing the only dermal filler approved for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years.

Bellafill offers an important difference to patients who know acne scar correction can be very costly. What if instead of just filling, you could actually restore?

It has distinctive properties. The Bellafill formulated solution works in two ways:

  • The collagen provides immediate volume below atrophic acne scars to lift them to the level of the surrounding skin.
  • The PMMA microspheres create a matrix that supports endogenous collagen production.

On average, Bellafill lasts between 1 and 5 years. Patients who have a series of 2 or 3 injections find their results last longer.

As this innovative and noninvasive facial filler has been introduced to the market by some of the most highly accredited surgeons and dermatologist, other social influencers began endorsement because of its permanent effects vs. temporary grades in comparison to previously qualified leading industry products recognized in the cosmetic industry like Juvederm / Restylane.

About Face: Turning Back Time

On top of aiding with acne scars, Bellafill also works as a skin smoothing elucidation for fine lines and wrinkles. Despite it all, we can stop the evolutionary aging process, but Bellafill can smoothly slow it down a bit. No matter what your life stage is, from adolescence to a maturing adult on a quest for ageless beauty, Bellafill can erase the lines and scars of the past.

Zapping Zits and The Angst Against Acne

A healthy lifestyle goes a long way when it comes to keeping one’s skin blemish-free, no matter what stage of development and age you are in. Anguish regarding acne is an ordinary reaction, but stressing about it does not help. Although skin problems are a seemingly common aesthetic issue, they do not have to be permanent or effect one’s self-esteem and confidence. Acne is temporary and so are the emotional and physical scars.

Discovering Sleep Apnea in NJ

Do you have trouble sleeping? Do you snore? Well, you’re not alone. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), a disorder in which normal breathing is interrupted during sleep due to the blockage of airflow in the upper airway breathing passages, affects approximately 18 million adults in the United States. Luckily, Dr. Monica Tadros is here to help!

“There are a number of things that can contribute to obstructive sleep apnea, that’s what makes it a little bit complicated,” explains Dr. Tadros. “When we talk about snoring, it’s a noise, and that noise comes from vibration, and vibration comes from anything along the pathway of how we breathe. If we’re not breathing properly through the throat, then we’re going to get a lot of resonance. If the nose is blocked, we might actually open our mouth during sleep. Opening our mouth and breathing exclusively through our mouth, there’s going to be more resonance or vibration through the back of the throat — it’s going to sound a lot louder.”

“If there’s a lot of noise during sleep, that draws our attention to the fact that they’re might be a problem. You may just be snoring, but more likely there may be some component of sleep apnea developing. So there may be a number of conditions associated with snoring and sleep apnea, there are also a number of surgical and non-surgical options able to treat these conditions.”

Many factors contribute to obstructive sleep apnea NJ and a thorough evaluation by Dr. Tadros requires a sleep apnea study and comprehensive airway examination that highlights: nasal obstruction (deviated nasal septum/turbinate overgrowth) tonsil enlargement soft palate laxity and uvula enlargement oropharyngeal tissue hypertrophy (overgrowth) tongue enlargement (macroglossia) and hyoid bone position epiglottis position. Primary treatment in NJ includes a trial of CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) appliance during sleep and goal directed weight loss. Adjunct sleep apnea related procedures may include an oral dental appliance or nasal surgery to decrease airway pressures and improve CPAP comfort and compliance. Some sleep apnea NJ patients cannot tolerate or comply with CPAP and should be evaluated by an ENT sleep apnea surgery specialist. Depending on the severity of sleep apnea, and the associated pathology a number of procedures may open the airway, improve snoring and diminish apneic events.  A variety of sleep apnea procedures can be used to tailor a sleep apnea treatment regimen.

Monica Tadros, MD FACS, Dual Board Certified in ENT & Facial Plastics briefly discusses Sleep Apnea. Watch this video to learn more about obstructive sleep apnea and the available treatments.
