Losing hair can be quite terrifying! On a day to day many people can lose up to 100 hairs a day. One hundred is not as noticeable considering the size of each hair strand especially because hair is continuously growing. There are many causes as to how we lose hair.  Most cases are due to genetic predispositions, hormonal changes and medications.
Im sure you have heard of male and female pattern baldness. These type of hair loss are bound to occur due genetic predispositions! Yes! Family heredity can have a lot to do with it. Not cool, but it happens.
Another source to hair loss is hormonal change! It is known that hair loss due to hormonal imbalances can cause you to lose hair. Pregnancy and child birth are some of the causes of hormonal imbalances as well as thyroid problems.
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!

How it works!

 
Your probably wondering how a hair transplant is performed as it sounds like a lot of work. Well its not, Hair transplantation has gotten easier and faster with the help of the artas robot. On the day of your procedure you have an option of shaving your head or only the donor area from where the hair will be taken from (for men) women we will only shave the donor area leaving the rest of the hair to cover. Local anesthesia is used to minimize pain and discomfort along with valium to help relax. Once ready Dr. Mark Bishara will set the robot to begin the dissection part of the hair transplant procedure. The robot will begin dissecting as one of Dr. Bishara’s techs extracts the follicular units. Once completely extracted the follicular units are checked for quality and Dr. Mark Bishara begins making sites where there new hair will be planted. Dr. Bishara’s techs will then begin the planting process. After completing the planting of the follicular units post-op instructions will be reviewed to help you understand how to care for your new hair. Written instructions along with all of the supplies needed to care for your new hair will be provided. So you see its not as complicated as you thought it would the hardest part is always coming in for the initial consultation. After that everything is just a sit back and getting it done!

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!

Does PRP sound familiar? PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma has been around for quite some time. It is commonly used for joint rejuvenation, male enhancement and aesthetic procedures like face lifts.
What about hair loss? Hair loss can be caused by many factors in both men and women. Whether it is genetic or for medical reasons, no one likes the fact that they are losing hair. Now a days there are many options to help with hair loss. Some such as minoxidil or roGaine, laser therapy and even hair transplantation.
Did you know that now not only does PRP help with joints and aesthetic procedures, but now it is an option for hair loss as well. PRP is created from the patients own blood, it is placed in a centrifuge so that the plasma is separated. PRP stimulates the present hair to produce longer and stronger strands of hair.  Local anesthetic is used to help minimize any pain and discomfort. The PRP is then injected to the areas that Dr. Bishara has recommended to be treated.
One of the good things about this treatment is there is no down time, you can resume regular activities the moment you leave our office. Some swelling may occur but it is not very common. PRP is a great option if surgery to preserve your existing hair and to support hair transplantation. A consultation with Dr. Mark A Bishara is all it takes to get started with hair loss prevention.

 
 
Respectfully yours,
 
Mark A Bishara, M.D., P.A. Medical Director
