Lele Pons Before and After Rhinoplasty Performed By Dr. Kassir, Kassir Plastic Surgery

Lele Pons recently shared with her 25.5 million followers that she had a rhinoplasty done in 2015 by renowned rhinoplasty expert and facial plastic surgeon, Dr.Kassir of Kassir Plastic Surgery. Dr.Kassir states that “Lele found us through searching before/after portfolios”. This showing that she followed the typical route of many teens and 20-year-olds on their search for the right rhinoplasty surgeon.Check out Lele’s Plastic Surgeon IG here

Lele Pons before and after rhinoplasty by Dr. Kassir


Unlike other cosmetic surgeries, rhinoplasty is one of the most challenging procedures in the field. Because of this, only top facial plastic surgeons with an ENT background can deliver the results that don’t lead to a revision. While 1 in 5 patients who get a nose job will need a revision, as we see from Lele Pons, she definitely won’t need or want one. This brings us to the case that only the top experts in rhinoplasty can give results that provide life-long changes and that “perfect” look a patient wants.

While speaking with Dr.Kassir, we learned that he has performed over 8,000 rhinoplasties in his 22 years as a 3x board-certified plastic surgeon. Because of his experience, he has one of the lowest revision rates in the world! Patients from 120 countries have visited Dr.Kassir for a rhinoplasty, Lele Pons being among one of them.

Like Lele, rhinoplasty patients are usually young girls. But how are they able to finance without being ultra wealthy? The key is care credit, Alpheon, and maybe a good summer job. A summer job alone can save up a majority of the payment for a rhinoplasty, while adding on care credit (which can finance it up to 2 years – costing about $600 a month for an average rhinoplasty with no money down!) or Alpheon (which accepts all ranges of credit). A summer job or monthly payment in exchange for a lifetime of “face happiness”? Now we see why Lele was ready for her’s without any hesitation!

As we all fan-girl (or crush) over the comedy queen of Instagram, we see what a big change the rhinoplasty (and puberty) has made in Lele. Lele has been brave to share her rhinoplasty with us and we are so proud of her for that! And thanks to Dr.Kassir for making sure she had a nose that millions of girls now dream to have!

Dr.Kassir is also known for his work on patients from MTV Wild N Out, The Jersey Shore (Snooki, JWow, Mike), and The Real Housewives (New York, New Jersey).

5 Signs Your Skin is Seriously Stressed Out

You may think you can handle all the stress from your daily life, but can your skin?  Managing stress is frequently overlooked aspect of skincare, but nonetheless, it is one of the most crucial methods in having clean and clear skin.  While this is easier said than done, any skin care professional will tell you that stress has numerous adverse effects on your complexion.


Stress can bring out many factors in our bodies’ chemistries, and this includes hormone production.  Hormones are picky, too much of one can cause breakouts, too much of another type of hormone can lead to dryness.  That’s exactly what the hormone cortisol does, and during periods of time that are high in stress, the body maximized cortisol levels which can leave your skin feeling dry, flaky, and bland.

If you notice a sudden dryness in your skin, then it could be signal of too much stress.  While you find ways to manage your stress, treat your skin to a face wash that’s fragrance-free, hypoallergenic.  This will help get your skin’s sensitive pH levels back to balanced and resume normal oil production to curb dryness.


Think about the times you have been stressed out—now, has your skin ever reflected this in a form of hives, rashes, breakouts, and other irritations?  Most people going through an immense amount of stress actually have their skin reflect this, and suddenly, their skin becomes irritated, red, or itchy.  The presence of a chemical called histamine can be blamed for this, which is reflective of an allergic reaction, hence why so many allergy pills are labeledas an “anti-histamine”.

Believe it or not, allergy pills can be your best solution to skin irritation if a rash or hives are involved, acting as histamine blockers.  A more natural route to solve stressed out skin irritation is essential oils that have anti-inflammatory properties, like witch hazel, tea tree oil, and eucalyptus extract.


Acne and stress seem to go hand-in-hand, but don’t let your high stress levels get the best of your clear skin.  If you are noticing frequent breakouts, there is a definite correlation to any stress you are currently facing.

In treating acne, salicylic acid is your friend.  This acid dissolves the dirt, debris, and oil that clog pores, giving you a deep clean feeling and stopping acne in its tracks.  Follow up your face cleanser with a fragrance-free face moisturizer.  By going fragrance-free, your skin has a lower risk of clogging pores and staying acne-free, even under high amounts of stress.Dullness

Is your skin looking a bit lackluster?  It’s not your fault because stress is likely to blame.  Stress causes the body’s natural healing cycle to be thrown off and suddenly, skin cells aren’t being repaired as quickly as they should be.  The result is a dull complexion.

A feel-good solution that clears away dead skin cells and makes you feel better is exfoliation.  Exfoliating a few times a week can help your skin regenerate new cells, clear away blockage from pores, and leave your skin feeling smooth and soft.

Fine Lines

Have you ever heard of worry lines?  You can blame these fine lines on unbalanced hormone levels caused by stress.  Cortisol, when produced in excess, can spike blood sugar levels, and this can damage the collagen in the skin cells.  Collagen is what keeps our skin firm, hydrated, and plump, so when its production is hindered, the result is fine lines.

Look for beauty products that contain retinol, otherwise known as vitamin A, because this will assist your body in retaining its normal collagen levels.  Within a few weeks of use, you should notice a difference, and hopefully be less stressed!

Bikini Lovers, It’s National Bikini Day

StraitSwim Bikini Top and Bottom

Strait Swim Bikini Top and Bottom



Bikini lovers celebrate! Today is National Bikini Day. Our friend Jessica shared with us that on July 5, 1946 Louis Reard introduced the “bikini” at a popular Paris swimming pool. In one of his first ad campaigns, he claimed a swimsuit wasn’t a real bikini unless it could be pulled through a wedding ring!

Whether you are bikini clad today or hoping to be this weekend, here are some “Must See” bikinis and “Must Have” Summer Bikini/Beach Accessories that we are loving now.

StraitSwim Bikini brand is founded by and designs are by Alyssa Levesque . “My hope for StraitSwim is that we set ourselves apart by educating our followers about the Torres Strait culture, as well as, providing gorgeous swimwear along the way,” says Alyssa.

Pictured above is the StraitSwim Prince of Wales Damper design which is adorable. From the website,”Prince of Wales is the largest island in the Torres Strait therefore making the Prince of Wales bottom a full coverage bottom. This set was created with four spaghetti strap ties resembling the four secret fishing spots around the island. Adjust these baby’s for your liking so when you adapt for the day, your bikini adapts with you.” Top $95, Bottom $95.

KOLOLO inflatable pool toys are fabulous! “They are made with only the highest quality, non-phthalate vinyl to ensure the best and most fun filled floating experience.” ($59) We want Giant Narwhal !(pictured below).

From the website, “After having found the most Magical creature in all the lands, we decided to start searching the sea. On our quest, we encountered the Unicorn of the sea, the legendary Giant Narwhal. Said to possess supernatural healing and protective abilities, the Narwhal’s horn is the source of true, magical power. With the desire to possess this magnificent creature’s horn and power, ancient Kings and Queens traded gold and jewels in order to acquire it; and thus, the mysterious Narwhal has only become more elusive. Can you win over this legendary creature’s love and trust?”

5 Ways to Keep Your Water Feature a Safe Space for Kids

Installing a water feature elevates the look and appeal of a home. Tiered garden fountains and other water features like swimming pools, for example, can give your place a more lavish atmosphere. In addition to beautifying your property, these also attract more birds to your garden or make it more suitable as a venue for events and other activiti

Hwever, the presence of a water feature in your home may pose a danger for children and pets. No matter how shallow a pond is, it’s still a must to take precautionary measures to prevent accidents in the water. Here are some of the things you can do to enjoy the benefits of having a water feature without compromising the safety of your kids:


  • Install a fence or wire mesh. Installing a barrier around the water feature is a great option if there are very young kids in your home. A fence around the perimeter of your pond can deter children from venturing in the water without adult supervision. Ideally, the fence should be around 1.1m high and should have no gaps where the child can squeeze through, plus it should be free of climbing aids. Aside from that, you can install a metal mesh over the water feature. The mesh should be strong enough to hold the weight of a toddler, and its bars should be far apart from each other, enough to let the plants in the pond to get sunlight.
  • Buy pool alarms. Pool alarms are worth looking into if you have a pond or a pool in your property. These sound off when something—a child or a pet—falls into the pool, but they may also get triggered by fish, turtles, or any animals that live near the water. Some pool alarms may also be programmed to go off if anything gets near the water. This type of alarm helps prevent people or pets from falling into the pool.
  • Make sure you can always see the water. It’s important to keep kids under strict supervision when they’re around water, but sometimes, they can dash to the pool or play near the fountain without letting you know. One good way to always know what’s going on in the pool or pond is by making sure these areas are within your line of sight at all times. If possible, position a water feature where you can see it from inside the house. If not, maybe you can install a window somewhere in your home where you can see a good portion of the pool or pond area.
  • Talk to your kids about water safety. Bringing up the issue of water safety to your kids is a must whether or not you have a pool, pond, or fountain in your home. As their guardian, you should never let them into the pool area without supervision. Also, you should make them understand that they shouldn’t get near or in the water if you’re not around, and that going against that rule can be dangerous for them.
  • Establish rules around the pool or pond area. It’s also necessary to establish and reinforce proper pool etiquette, which means no pushing, running, or jumping when in slippery areas. Advise people to wear slippers to prevent slipping. When around a pond, everyone should avoid touching water creatures and should wash their hands after dipping in the water. This can help kids understand that they need to respect other creatures, plus it helps prevent bites and stings from the animals or insects that live in the water.


Water features are fun to have around your home. By setting guidelines, installing safety barriers, and informing and involving your children, your entire family can have a safer time playing in or near your pool or pond.
