The symptoms of sinusitis and allergies are very similar. The main symptom is a stuffy nose. However, the symptoms occur for different reasons.
If you have allergies, your sinuses become stuffy because they are trying to flush out allergens. Dr. Monica Tadros specializes in sinusitis and allergy in her Center for Facial Plastic Surgery in NJ & NYC to restructure the sinuses and help patients with allergy problems.
Sinusitis occurs when there is an infection in the sinuses. Air should flow through your nose. When your nose is stuffy, it is more prone to infection because bacteria can get caught in the mucus in your nose.
Stuffy nose can occur because of an allergy, a cold, or a deviated septum.
For sinusitis, you can also use antihistamines. You can also try nasal spray, but don’t use it for more than 3-4 days because your body develops a tolerance to it. If conservative treatment were to no avail, balloon sinuplasty surgery might be an option for those suffering from sinusitis.
Facial paralysis is the loss of facial movement caused to nerve damage. It is a dysfunction of cranial nerve VII (the facial nerve) that results in an inability to control the facial muscles on the affected side.
Dr. Monica Tadros specializes in facial paralysis surgery for patients in NYC & NJ. Oftentimes an individual’s facial muscles begin to droop or weaken. It typically occurs on only one side of the face due to infection or inflammation of the facial nerve, head trauma, head or neck tumor, or stroke.
A brow lift, more commonly referred to as a forehead lift, reverses the unavoidable effects of gravity with the ability to tighten the soft tissues of the forehead.
This procedure addresses several signs of aging such as deep, horizontal lines across the forehead, and vertical lines between the eyebrows or bridge of the nose. By restoring a more youthful contour to the forehead skin, these noticeable signs of aging can be minimized and smoothed. Low or sagging eyebrows can be re-positioned to an elevated “alert” position to bring youth back into the appearance of the forehead skin.
Brow Lift Surgery is a cosmetic facial plastic procedure with various methods involving different length incisions in complimenting locations and may require the use of an endoscope. It may also be combined with other accompanying procedures if the patient desires.
Chin augmentation is a surgical technique that is used to achieve facial harmony in patients that have a weak chin. This is commonly associated with a large nose, excess fat or skin laxity under the chin region.
Achieving facial harmony is characterized by creating balance and symmetry in the overall appearance of the face. Augmentation of the chin with an implant can provide a more chiseled, sculpted appearance to the facial structure. Chin implantation is commonly combined with cheek implants that add or improve volume and provide more distinct facial contours, leaving you with a defined, youthful appearance.

Eyelid surgery (also called an eye lift or blepharoplasty), reduces bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids. NJ patients choose eyelid surgery for cosmetic reasons and improvement in the overall appearance of the eyes.
Over time, the signs of aging become more visible and prominent. Natural folds in the neck and face deepen due to the loss of youthful elasticity in the skin.
Jawline definition begins to decrease with the emergence of jowls when the pads of the cheeks give way to gravity and forehead furrows become more prominent and permanent.
We slowly begin to see how our reflection in the mirror does not directly correlate with how we feel, youthfully, or our mental image of how we perceive ourselves.
Over time, our bodies begin to give in to gravity and the inevitable signs of aging become more visible. As we grow older, we begin to notice that skin elasticity decreases and we are left with excess skin that is sagging.
Many individuals see this in the neck region and eventually form a “turkey wattle” or double chin, accompanied by jowl lines. Due to laxity of the platysma muscle, two paired cords in the middle of the neck cause vertical banding to occur and is considered an isolated issue.
Many individuals may be apprehensive about going under the knife for cosmetic purposes, however, at our center Dr. Monica Tadros will thoroughly explain all processes and procedures of neck lift surgery to ensure that the patient is not only knowledgeable but comfortable over the course of the process.
Ear surgery, also known as Otoplasty, is a procedure that is performed in our center located in NJ & NYC to help correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth. As the child ages, the ears may become more prominent with development. This facial plastic procedure may also be performed due to a misshapen ear that was caused by injury.
Otoplasty aims to create a natural ear shape while bringing proportion and balance to the ears and face. The results can have multiple benefits on self-esteem, confidence, and overall appearance by correcting minor deformities or structural oddities.
Over time, the unavoidable signs of aging become more and more visible, especially on the skin of our face. Using fillers, such as Botox® or Dysbrow®, may just be the solution to help improve our appearance by reversing the signs of aging and reducing dynamic wrinkles that appear when we smile or frown.
Habitual muscle movement such as smiling, squinting, chewing etc. reinforces the creases and lines around the face including the eye fold which form deep lines on the forehead that are often referred to as “11’s”.
Through the years, we continuously lose volume and elasticity in our skin until eventually there is no soft tissue to serve as a buffer between the muscles and the skin. These creases become permanent wrinkles that Botox can fill to restore youthfulness back into your overall aesthetic.
A chemical peel is a dermatological solution that is used to improve and smooth the appearance and texture of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical peel begins with a chemical formula that is applied to the skin to remove dead skin cells while stimulating the production of new skin cells.
The peel causes the skin to slightly blister and eventually peel off exposing a new, regenerated layer of the dermis that appears smooth and healthier than ever! After the peel, fresh skin is slightly more sensitive to the sun, however, this is only temporary.
Filler injections are formulated solutions and products. Various injectable fillers may be injected into the skin as a preventative tactic and as a way to rejuvenate or sculpt the face by adding volume to selected areas.
Filler injection restoration and rejuvenation treatments aim to replace volume where soft tissue loss has led to visible signs of aging. Facial sculpting and filler injection procedures, like Lip Shaping and Cheek Augmentation take this a step further to re-contour the face. Dr. Monica Tadros offers filler injection in her New Jersey facial plastic surgery center.
Ablative CO2 laser skin treatment has remained the gold standard in skin laser treatment resurfacing since the 1990s. It is still used to today for more severe wrinkles, sun damage and scars.
Are your lashes thinning over time? Tired of heavy makeup applications or false lashes that never seem to be enough? Latisse is the solution to grow lashes longer, fuller and darker creating a luminous aesthetic. Open up your eyes to beauty’s best-kept secret.
LATISSE® is an FDA-approved treatment to grow eyelashes for people with inadequate or not enough lashes. Great eyelashes don’t just happen overnight. That’s why it’s important to note that LATISSE® solution works gradually over time with some people beginning to see longer lashes in about four weeks, with full growth at 16 weeks.
Lip augmentation is one of the easiest and most dramatic cosmetic procedures available to patients. It has also grown into becoming one of the most popular requests thanks to social influences and the media highlighting plump pouts.
Beautiful lips are central to our appearance, attractiveness, and youthfulness. The appropriate sized lips help to restore balance and symmetry.
Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin.
Radiesse® is a calcium-based filler used in filler injection at our clinic for cosmetic plastic surgery and internationally that is virtually non-allergenic and also recognized by the body as a natural substance.
Belotero is a FDA approved Hyaluronic Acid filler that can be used to fill in moderate to severe wrinkles around the eyes and mouth.
• Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the natural filler substance found in your body.
• HA is also a naturally occurring polysaccharide (a sugar molecule) found in the extracellular matrix of our cells to hydrate and regenerate the dermis. Basically, it attracts and holds water allowing for longevity of treatment and smooth integration.
Dysport® is one of the most popular and well-known brands used for the cosmetic and functional administration of botulinum. It has proven long-term efficacy and safety. Dysport can improve the signs of aging.
As the year’s pass, we continue to lose more volume and gradually there is no more soft tissue buffer between the skin and muscle and these creases become permanent wrinkles, which you can fill with Dysport.
Over time, your face changes in many ways. This is part of the normal aging process, but genetics and environmental factors can also play a role. You may notice a change in the appearance of your skin, typically in the form of deepening parentheses lines and wrinkles. But what may be less obvious is age-related mid-face volume loss.
Juvéderm® XC is an FDA-approved dermal filler, specifically formulated to add volume to the skin around the mouth and nose that has been lost due to the natural aging process. This injectable gel restores a youthful contour to the face, plumping up the area and softening lines, facial wrinkles, and folds.
The Restylane family of products includes Restylane®, Restylane-L®, and Restylane®Silk, can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
Restylane, Restylane-L and Restylane Silk may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years. Restylane Silk in the cosmetic facial center of NJ can be used to treat lip lines in patients over 21 years. Ask your doctor which is right for you.
Sculptra Aesthetic® is the most powerful FDA approved collagen-stimulating, filler injection agent that boosts facial rejuvenation and helps provide more long-lasting results for patients in NYC & NJ.
Nasal obstruction is any blockage in the nose or nasal cavity. This limits the amount of air getting into your lungs. More than 20 million Americans suffer from nasal obstruction, making it hard for them to breathe and limiting their quality of life.
If you suffer from nasal obstruction or difficulty breathing you should get a diagnosis from Dr. Tadros to ensure proper treatment. Dr. Monica Tadros has successfully treated hundreds of patients with nasal obstruction and can help you find a cure and breathe easier again.
Some people experience mass amounts of apprehension when it comes to surgical procedures, yet they still seek out the solutions and optimal results. Forget going under the knife in search of younger-looking skin.
These days, the bulk of procedures designed to restore a more youthful appearance to your face (and sometimes hands and neck) are done on an outpatient basis, often in the doctor’s office. These “lunch hour” facelifts include botulinum toxin treatments to improve the look of frown lines, dermal fillers to plump out wrinkles and laser procedures to smooth away bumps, age spots, and scars.
It is imperative to find a specialty facial plastic surgery clinic which is highly-skilled and experienced enough to repair and reconstruct features that are absent or deformed due to birth defects, craniofacial deformities, head and neck cancer resection, maxillofacial surgery, previous failed microvascular reconstructions, radiation therapy to the head and neck, and trauma.
NJ facial plastic surgeon Dr. Monica Tadros is not only advanced with the most innovative techniques in the industry, but she is also sought after by individuals who are looking to achieve optimal results with the necessary personalize pre and post-care.
