If you have felt a decrease in self confidence or would like to look younger, then consider the potential outcome after you restore your hair.  Using the ARTAS robot or other Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) devices Dr. Mark A. Bishara, board certified hair restoration surgeon, can restore many patients back to a more youthful and healthy looking stage. If another surgical procedure is indicated instead of FUE to achieve fuller hair and better density, a consultation with Dr Mark A Bishara will bring that to light.

Many patients will present with diffuse hair loss or will have insignificant amounts of follicles to transplant and may not be good candidates to restore their hair.  Discussing these surgical and non surgical options to restore your hair with Dr Mark A Bishara will start your journey towards a more youthful you.
Non surgical treatments for hair loss may be recommended by Dr Mark A Bishara to restore your hair.  You may also be recommended to add non-surgical adjuncts to your procedure to restore your hair.  Non surgical adjuncts include platelet rich plasma therapy (or PRP), low level light therapy (LLLT), finasteride pills by mouth, and minoxidil with bimotoprost.
PRP, as seen on both Good Morning America and Good Morning Texas is offered in 1 or 2 areas, and is carried out at the time of a transplant, or without a transplant, and repeated 3 times over 90 days.  Most patients will respond with a response rate of 70-90%.  In fact, some patients respond better than others.  Some providers have chosen to add amniotic and placental products.  At the current time the Paragon Hair Clinic has chosen not to add these products as of summer of 2018 while further safety and efficacy can be determined.
Low level light therapy stimulates hair growth and prevents hair loss in the majority of patients who remain compliant under the Paragon Hair Clinic protocols.  Using sustained light for as little as 6 to 12 minutes every day or every other day for 6 months shows results.  Patients who see results in the hair often experience shedding between 2-6 weeks which is normal and should not be alarming.  LLLT has been tested in a randomized, double-blinded, placebo controlled method and increases hair mass in most patients between 6 and 10 months.
Finasteride 1mg per day or 2.5 mg every other day can also stimulate hair mass in the crown and posterior mid scalp but is less effective on the hair line.  Finasteride has been known to cause decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, and gynecomastia in small percentages reported by Merck.
Minoxidil is also FDA approved to prevent hair loss.  Bimatoprost has also been used to stimulate eyelash growth and has been used by some opthomologists for hair mass stimulation. Bimatoprost is not used widespread for hair loss prevention because of the expense.  There is only one pharmacy that the Paragon Hair Clinic endorses for the production of a compounded form of Minoxidil 14% with Bimotoprost.
Using these four products together can give a response that is greater than using the individual components to restore your hair..

Dr. Mark Bishara has performed the most Robotic FUEs in the world. It is definitely a huge upgrade in the world of hair restoration.

Artas Robot

The ARTAS Robot was cleared by the FDA in 2011. The ARTAS Robot allows Dr. Mark Bishara to maneuver the robot to dissect the best follicular units. The robot is equipped with multiple cameras to help capture the best video and images of the patients hair.  The robot does the dissecting part of the procedure.   The follicular units are checked for quality as the robot dissects and the units get extracted. The robot is built to make recipient sites as well, once the sites are made and the follicular units are checked the planting begins. The new hair is then planted on to the patients recipient area. Local anesthetic is used to help with any pain and discomfort along with Valium to help the patient relax. The ARTAS Robot cuts down on time from a FUT procedure.

Medications! Most people may not know but there are some medications that can cause some hair loss. Medications used for depression, cancer, hypertension, and heart problems are some!

Beard Craze!

Facial hair transplantation has become quite popular here at The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa. Beard transplantations to be exact. As not all men are blessed with having a full beard. Some have patchy beards some have non at all. Well with this full beard craze happening Dr. Mark Bishara has the solution for you!
 

The Works!

 
So now you wonder how? Well as you might have heard of hair transplants, beard transplants work the same only difference is that its going on your face. When performing beard transplantation Dr. Mark Bishara uses the same technique as with hair. Beard transplants typically take around 300 to 800 follicular units. Dr. Mark Bishara uses the ARTAS robotic system to take the hair from the donor area. Before starting the ARTAS robot Dr. Bishara will assist you in drawing in the beard design you like. The Paragon Plastic Surgery techs will shave the back of the head which is where the hair being transplanted is typically taken from. The ARTAS robot will then be started, you will sit in prone position  as the robot does the disecting part. Don’t worry, we use local anesthetic to minimize pain and discomfort. As the robot is disecting one of Dr. Mark Bishara’s techs will begin to check the follicular units for quality. Once the disecting is done, you will be laid on your back and Dr. Mark BIshara will numb the beard and mustache area to begin making the recipient sites. Once Dr. Mark Bishara is done the techs will begin planting the follicular units that were extracted on to the new recipient area.
 

The waiting game

 
The procedure is done and your now ready to go home and play the waiting game. As everything begins to heal small scabs around the recipient sites will begin to form and should only last about 4 to 5 days. Medications are prescribed to help with any pain/sleep as well as antibiotics to help prevent any infection. Two weeks after the beard transplant the hair transplanted will begin to fall out. Don’t panic that is absolutely normal! At around 3 months after the beard transplantation your new beard will begin to grow and last a lifetime!
