Botox injections to address problems with fullness or “bands”
Know Your Goals You must be in good health to get a neck lift. You’ll consult with your surgeon in advance. For that meeting, have your goals in mind for what you want to change. Here are some of the most common concerns that are addressed with a neck lift:
Turkey wattle neck
Too much skin
Your Consultation During your consultation, you should go over your goals and learn about the options:
Turkey Wattle: Your surgeon may recommend surgery, which involves making cuts under your chin or behind your ears or both to access a neck muscle called the platysma. Sometimes, that may even mean removing some muscle. Instead of surgery or in addition to it, Botox injections can relax parts of the platysma that are responsible for the “band” appearance or look of fullness.
Liposuction: During liposuction, your surgeon will make a small cut below your chin and remove excess fat. If you are also getting other procedures, it is very common for cosmetic surgeons to begin with liposuction. You will be able to determine this with your doctor during your consultation.
Too Much Skin on Your Neck: Your surgeon will trim parts of the skin and lift it into place, securing it with tissue glue or stitches.

There are seasons for everything, but one thing you wouldn’t expect to be seasonal is cosmetic surgery. Any plastic surgeon, however, will tell you that the spring is the season for breast augmentations and liposuction, and the season for facelifts is right after Christmas. And many other procedures are more common during certain times of the year.
The reasons for this seasonality become obvious when you consider each procedure. During the spring, women start thinking about that dreaded bathing suit. They try them on and might notice a little fat that wasn’t there last year, or they might wish they filled it out better in certain areas. Since it takes a month or so to look reasonable in a bathing suit after cosmetic surgery, by July 4, if the surgery hasn’t been performed yet, many women wait until after the summer. When it comes to facial surgery, like face or eyelid lifts, fall or winter surgery is most common. While you should be able to face the public two weeks after a facelift, you might not really want to. You’ll have residual swelling and even a little bruising up to a month after the lift, and there’s always a chance of some odd lumps and bumps. It’s a lot easier to wear scarves or heavier makeup when it’s cold outside. When planning for cosmetic surgery, you might be pleasantly surprised at how fast you recover, but 5-10% of people have one thing or another that slows down their recovery. When planning out your schedule, you really have to plan for the worst-case scenario. Recovery from larger procedures takes longer than recovery from smaller procedures. And older women take longer to bounce back than younger ones. And, of course, if you have significant medical problems, you have a much higher chance of a complication after surgery; you and your surgeon may decide to forgo surgery and improve your appearance with less invasive procedures that are less demanding on your body. While some office procedures like Botox, Xeomin and Fillers, are easier to do and really don’t have seasonality, not all types of procedures are suited for the summer. Chemical peels and some laser treatments require strict avoidance of sun, so unless you live in a cave or are a vampire, you might consider having these treatments during the fall-winter months.

a recent article in the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS discusses how women like how their selfies look using filters, and then head to their doctors to help create what they see.
You is the new you. Years ago, people seeking cosmetic surgery would bring pictures of celebrities to their doctor — and ask for “Angelina Jolie’s lips,” “Kate Beckinsale’s nose” or “Kim Kardashian’s butt.” But now people bring their selfies — filtered through Instagram. “This is a huge trend,” says Upper East Side surgeon Dr. Elie Levine. “People are bringing in pictures of themselves taken at a favorite angle or filtered, and saying they want to look like that.” Anyone can nowadays, thanks to Photoshop — which even Beyoncé uses to always look her best in pictures. But real life requires real solutions, and that’s where the Instagram-aided knife comes in. Central Jersey mom Geri Hubner says she became obsessed with her growing wattle after staring at photos from her daughter’s wedding. She started using photo filters but then came to the ultimate real-world conclusion: “I wanted to look like that all the time,” says Hubner, 56. So she called facial plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Miller in Edison, showed him the Instagrammed pictures and sprung for a neck lift, which can run $10,000 to $20,000. “He’s an artist. I should have done this years ago,” says Hubner, who says the surgery and week-long recovery were relatively painless. Queens resident Nancy Chacon, 32, also showed her best face on Instagram, using “either the Inkwell or Sutro filters, or the sepia tones, to hide blemishes.” It worked — too well, she admits: “I decided I wanted people to see that person in person.” So she got some laser treatments and broadband light photofacial therapy at Levine’s Manhattan clinic. It cost about $1,000, but her complexion is in the clear. “So many people asked, ‘What are you doing to your face? You look so young!’ ” she says. “It was worth it.” Huber also got Botox, for about $300, and injections of Juvederm, which runs about $1,000 per syringe. The result is smoother and fuller skin. “I now have cheekbones,” she says. “It’s put a real skip in my step.” These women aren’t alone: The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery says there’s been a 33% bump in procedures driven by self-awareness from social media since 2013. Midtown plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer has clients pleading for a “social-media makeover” every day. “They whip out their cellphones and start flipping through their pictures, saying, ‘I want to look like this all the time,’ ” he says. Doctors can respond with an arsenal of minimally invasive, lunch-break treatments for under $1,000. The changes are big, but friends and family often don’t know that any work was done. “I only tell my closest, tightest girlfriends that I’m doing this. Everyone else thinks I just look really well-rested,” says Janet Ross, 47, from San Francisco, who relied on the Amaro filter to soften her selfies before Dr. Jonathan Kaplan used Belotero fillers to reduce the lines around her eyes and mouth. “I don’t want to look like one of the ‘Real Housewives,’ ” she says. “I just want to look like myself, but better.”
The boom in Instagram-fueled cosmetic surgery may sound shallow, but it’s a step in the right direction for an industry where too much work can leave clients looking grotesque. “Clients are not trying to look like a whole different person anymore,” says Dr. Andrew Miller, who is based in Edison, N.J. “We always stress taking what you have naturally and making it better. Otherwise, people can look really weird, with lips that are too big, a jawline that’s unreal.” As a first step, here are some ways to tweak your selfies before contemplating surgery: Soft, warm Instagram filters such as Rise and Toaster deemphasize pores and imperfections by highlighting your skin. Black-and-white filters are universally flattering. They eliminating red or ruddy complexions and automatically make ho-hum classy. Blur imperfections with the softer Willow filter, or go bold with the high-contrast Inkwell. The duck face works: Purse your lips and shoot down from a higher angle to highlight cheekbones, conceal double-chins and emphasize your eyes. Before you snap the shutter, shake up your hair by doing a quick punk rock head-bang, or ruffle your fingers through it to give limp strands a quick boost.

PLASTIC SURGERY & AESTHETIC MEDICINE- FDA Approves First Dermal Filler to Treat Acne Scarring
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the first dermal filler to treat pitted scarring of the cheek caused by acne, the most common skin disorder in the United States afflicting 40-50 million people. Bellafill, developed by privately held Suneva Medical Inc, is made primarily of bovine collagen. When injected, it is designed to lift and smoothen scars to the level of the surrounding skin, in patients over the age of 21. A cure for acne has long eluded drug developers. And despite treatments ranging from topical gels to lasers, nothing so far has satisfactorily treated scarring that affects up to 95 percent of acne sufferers. A study testing Bellafill against a placebo in 150 acne patients showed a significant improvement in those receiving Suneva’s treatment that continued for up to a year, Suneva said on Tuesday. “Until now, multiple laser treatments or other injectables have been used but are limited both in terms of efficacy and longevity and are hampered by potential side effects. Approved in 2006 to smoothen “smile lines”, demand for Bellafill has grown more that 30 percent a year for the last several years, Suneva CEO Nicholas Teti said in an interview. Pricing of the acne treatment is likely to be similar to that of the wrinkle treatment. Dosages would depend on the severity of the scarring. San Diego-based Suneva, which was formed in 2009 out of the assets of Artes Medical, a publicly traded company that filed for bankruptcy the previous year, plans to launch Bellafill for scarring toward the end of January. Sanford C. Bernstein analyst Aaron Gal, who covers Botox-maker Allergan Inc, termed Bellafill a “niche” product. For these reasons, he said it was unlikely Bellafill would become “a big drug” such as Allergan’s Juvederm and Valeant Pharmaceutical International Inc’s Restylane. Both are based on hyaluronic acid, a substance occurring naturally in the body but not approved to treat acne scarring.

Whether their goal is to turn back the hands of time, look as good as they feel, or age gracefully, Americans are embracing non surgical cosmetic facial treatments to get the quickest results with the least down time. In their quest for a more youthful appearance, however, they should keep in mind that popular non invasive procedures like the nonsurgical face lift and laser skin resurfacing are not just beauty routines. They’re medical treatments that should be respected for the benefits and risks associated with them.
Most of us want to look as good as we feel and reasonably attractive, and most people have an issue or two that they would admit to being self-conscious about. These procedures can be done rather quickly with a small amount of discomfort, there’s very little recovery time, and the results are fairly evident within a day or two. And the economics are much kinder to the person who does a little maintenance from time to time as opposed to the person that undergoes a lengthy surgical procedure. The top nonsurgical procedures of choice for both sexes in the United States are BOTOX® Cosmetic, injectable dermal fillers, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. Other popular procedures include the nonsurgical face lift and laser skin resurfacing, which is often used to deal with acne scars or general skin care. Botox or Xeomin blocks the nerve impulses that cause the muscle contractions that control certain facial expressions which, in turn, cause a breakdown of collagen leading to creases. Included in the category known as Injectable dermal fillers are commercial products like Juvederm, Belotero and Radiesse. Fillers, which replace the collagen and facial fat that we lose as we age, are used to lift, plump, smooth, and recontour the face. Botox and fillers are often administered in conjunction with each other to achieve the nonsurgical face lift or “liquid face lift”. Like Botox and dermal fillers, microdermabrasion works best when repeated in a series of skin rejuvenation treatments. It involves using a machine that sprays fine mildly abrasive crystals to remove the epidermis, or outer skin layer consisting primarily of dead skin cells. The crystals and cells are then vacuumed away. This controlled trauma to the skin leaves it looking smoother and healthier, with improvements to both the epidermis (the top layer of skin) and dermis (the middle layer of skin that includes collagen and elastic tissue.) Chemical peels are another type of skin resurfacing procedure that uses acids or other chemicals to treat sun-damage, wrinkles, blemishes and blotchiness. They can be applied to the entire face or just specific areas, or almost anywhere else on the body for smoother, more even-toned skin. Like dermabrasion and chemical peels, laser skin treatments help revitalize aged or sun-damaged skin, revealing fresher, younger-looking skin. Other usages include the treatment of birthmarks, acne scars, and vascular lesions. Moles, warts, tattoos, and unwanted body hair can also be removed by laser skin treatment. While these procedures may all seem to be mainly cosmetic in nature – more beauty procedure than surgical procedure – they are considered surgical, albeit less invasive than many other cosmetic surgery procedures. There are real risks involved that should be understood prior to committing to treatment. For example, using too much Botox or injecting it into the wrong spot can result in a drooping eyebrow or drooling. If dermal fillers are overinjected, you may end up with more augmentation than you were counting on, at least temporarily. With both microdermabrasion and chemical peels there is a risk of hyperpigmentation (dark spots) of the skin. Infection, bruising, and swelling are all temporary side effects of any procedure. For best results with your noninvasive cosmetic procedure, consult with one or more plastic surgeons or dermatologists and make sure they are trained and experienced in the specific treatment that interests you. They should be able to assess your situation, answer your questions, lay out the risks and benefits, and determine if you are a viable candidate for the procedure. First-time patients can ease their way into noninvasive cosmetic treatments by requesting one of the temporary fillers that last up to a year to “try on” the results. Start with a conservative approach to make sure you like what you see, and sample just one treatment at a time so you can discern what works and what doesn’t in your particular case.
NO TRATAMIENTOS COSMÉTICOS QUIRÚRGICAS: NO SOLO A rutina de belleza Ya sea que su objetivo es hacer retroceder las manecillas del tiempo, verse tan bien como se sienten, o envejecer con gracia, los estadounidenses están adoptando tratamientos faciales cosméticos no quirúrgicos para obtener los resultados más rápidos con el menor tiempo de inactividad. En su búsqueda de una apariencia más joven, sin embargo, deben tener en cuenta que tan popular como el y no son sólo rutinas de belleza. Son tratamientos médicos que deben ser respetados por los beneficios y riesgos asociados con them.non procedimientos invasivos como el y no son sólo rutinas de belleza. Son tratamientos médicos que deben ser respetados por los beneficios y riesgos asociados con lavado de cara them.nonsurgical y no son sólo rutinas de belleza. Son tratamientos médicos que deben ser respetados por los beneficios y riesgos asociados con them.laser rejuvenecimiento de la piel no son sólo rutinas de belleza. Son tratamientos médicos que deben ser respetados por los beneficios y riesgos asociados con ellos. La mayoría de nosotros quiere verse tan bien como nos sentimos y razonablemente atractiva, y la mayoría de la gente tiene un problema o dos que iban a admitir que soy consciente de. Estos procedimientos se pueden realizar con bastante rapidez con una pequeña cantidad de incomodidad, hay muy poco tiempo de recuperación, y los resultados son bastante evidente dentro de un día o dos. Y la economía son mucho más amable con la persona que hace un poco de mantenimiento de vez en cuando en lugar de la persona que se somete a un procedimiento quirúrgico largo. Los principales procedimientos no quirúrgicos de elección para ambos sexos en los Estados Unidos son Botox, rellenos dérmicos inyectables, peelings químicos y la microdermoabrasión. Otros procedimientos populares incluyen el estiramiento facial no quirúrgico y la piel con láser, que se utiliza a menudo para tratar cicatrices de acné o cuidados generales de la piel. Botox o Xeomin bloquea los impulsos nerviosos que causan las contracciones musculares que controlan ciertas expresiones faciales que, a su vez, causan una descomposición del colágeno que conduce a las arrugas.Se incluyen en la categoría conocida como inyectables rellenos dérmicos son productos comerciales como Juvederm, Belotero y Radiesse. Rellenos, que reemplazan el colágeno y grasa facial que perdemos a medida que envejecemos, se utilizan para levantar, regordeta, liso, y remodelar la cara. Botox y los rellenos se administran a menudo en combinación con otros para lograr el estiramiento facial no quirúrgico o “estiramiento facial líquido”. Al igual que el Botox y los rellenos dérmicos, la microdermabrasión funciona mejor cuando se repite en una serie de tratamientos de rejuvenecimiento de la piel. Se trata de utilizar una máquina que pulveriza cristales ligeramente abrasivas finas para eliminar la epidermis, o capa externa de la piel que consisten principalmente de las células muertas de la piel. Los cristales y las células son entonces aspiradas de distancia. Este trauma controlada en la piel hojas de su aspecto suave y más saludable, con mejoras tanto a la epidermis (la capa superior de la piel) y la dermis (la capa media de la piel que incluye colágeno y tejido elástico.) Los peelings químicos son otro tipo de procedimiento de rejuvenecimiento de la piel que utiliza ácidos u otros productos químicos para tratar el daño solar, arrugas, manchas y manchas. Se pueden aplicar en todo el rostro o zonas específicas sólo, o casi cualquier otra parte del cuerpo para la piel más suave y tonificada siquiera. Al igual que la dermoabrasión y peelings químicos, tratamientos de la piel con láser ayudan a revitalizar la piel envejecida o dañada por el sol, revelando una piel más fresca y joven. Otros usos incluyen el tratamiento de las marcas de nacimiento, cicatrices de acné y lesiones vasculares. Moles, verrugas, pelo tatuajes, y el cuerpo no deseado puede también ser eliminado por tratamiento de la piel con láser. Si bien estos procedimientos pueden todos parecen ser principalmente de naturaleza cosmética – más procedimiento belleza de procedimiento quirúrgico – se consideran quirúrgica, aunque menos invasiva que muchos otros procedimientos de cirugía cosmética. Hay riesgos reales involucrados que deben ser entendidos antes de comprometerse con el tratamiento. Por ejemplo, el uso excesivo de Botox o inyectarlo en el lugar equivocado puede resultar en una caída de la ceja o babeo. Si se sobreinyectado rellenos dérmicos, usted puede terminar con más aumento de lo que contabas, al menos temporalmente. Con ambos microdermoabrasión y las exfoliaciones químicas hay un riesgo de hiperpigmentación (manchas oscuras) de la piel. La infección, hematomas e hinchazón son todos los efectos secundarios temporales de cualquier procedimiento. Para obtener los mejores resultados con su procedimiento estético no invasivo, consultar con uno o más cirujanos plásticos o los dermatólogos y asegúrese de que están capacitados y con experiencia en el tratamiento específico que le interese. Ellos deben ser capaces de evaluar su situación, responder a sus preguntas, exponer los riesgos y beneficios, y determinar si usted es un candidato viable para el procedimiento. Los pacientes de primera vez pueden facilitar su camino en tratamientos cosméticos no invasivos solicitando uno de los rellenos temporales que duran hasta un año para “probar” los resultados. Comience con un enfoque conservador para asegurarse de que te gusta lo que ves, y muestra sólo un tratamiento a la vez para que pueda discernir lo que funciona y lo que no funciona en su caso particular.

Dr. Bishara and his whole staff are absolutely amazing, friendly and they genuinely care about their patients. I love my results and would recommend this place to anyone! :)read more
... I first used Dr. Bishara in 2017 after feeling I had no choice but to try and make my expressions look "less angry". I was told I looked "unhappy and mad all the time." I went in to see Dr. Bishara and he did several units of botox to help minimize my natural aging expressions....I loved what he did so much that I returned to him on my own in 2018. This time I was at his office because I wanted to be there! The staff and Dr. are amazing people. I recently had Ultherapy on my forehead to help the “hooding” in my eyelids. Angela provided the service and she was so nice. She talked me through the procedure and it was painless. Top notch practice! I am now considering other options at the practice. I love that he is an Aggie too! He has helped give me the self-confidence I lost after having kids and multiple other surgeries that left horrible scars. My mommy make-over was the perfect gift to give myself on my 50th birthday. My OBGYN has even commented on how incredible the scar was from the tummy tuck. He said the surgeon was extremely skilled and so technical to be able to leave minimal scarring. I am very happy!read more
... I was disappointed with the staff at Dr. Mark. Bishara office. I should have known it would not be a good experience because before I could discuss my problems they had to have an initial $150 to make an appointment. This was my first time seeking solutions for my problems so my expectations was for the staff to provide me with options. Well I was told 3 fillers and Botox was what I needed. I had the procedures done and paid $2,590. I made a checkup appointment but was called later to tell me that the staff would not be available to see me. I made a issue of it because I was scared, I had never did this before. So they made me an appointment with Dr. Mark Bishara who gave me a couple more options with hefty price tags. I asked the staff why wasn't I told this before I got the fillers. I'm not happy.read more
... Dr. Bishara is one of the best in his specialty. He is kind and gentle and takes the time to explain the procedure and make you comfortable. I can’t say enough about the quality of services this physician provides. We in Mansfield are lucky to have him and his staff in our community. Highly recommend.read more
... My initial experience with Dr. Bishara was great. He was very professional, attentive, and thorough. After about 4 months of my initial procedure I didn’t notice any growth in the recipient area and I received a call stating that I would need to come in for another transplant in June. This would require going through entire surgery and healing process again because it wasn’t completely the first go around. I do appreciate that Dr. Bishara followed up to make sure that the procedure was properly done (assuming), but more communication and transparency was needed. The second procedure definitely felt rushed and when I released from the office I attempted to drive home, but I was still sedated from the drugs and had to call a friend to pick me up because I wasn’t able to drive.read more
... Dr Bisara is AMAZING! Very professional, easy to speak with and is all about what makes you comfortable. There are multiple options for procedures and they work to your timeline. I highly recommend!read more

... It has been one year since I had an abdominoplasty performed by Dr. Bishara and I wanted to share my experience and why I would recommend him for the procedure. I first saw Dr. Bishara back in September 2019 for a consultation for a tummy tuck. Dr. Bishara was incredibly kind and patient, taking the time to explain to me the difference between a full tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck. We agreed to move forward with a mini tummy tuck and I scheduled my procedure. On the day of my procedure Dr. Bishara told me he had reviewed my profile and pictures and felt that I would not be fully satisfied with a mini tummy tuck and recommended I allow him to do a full tummy tuck with no extra cost to me, since we had already agreed to a mini. I agreed and we went ahead. Unfortunately, the results were not what I expected and I was not fully satisfied with the aesthetic appearance of my scar. Dr. Bishara and his staff were incredibly understanding and informed me that they would do everything in their power to make sure I was satisfied with the results. I went back and forth for one year giving myself a full year to recover from the first procedure. During that year, Dr. Bishara and his staff took the time to meet with me several times and worked diligently with me to ensure I felt comfortable moving forward. I am sure my unending questions and requests to meet with Dr. Bishara were not the most convenient for him or his staff, but they were always patient, kind and incredibly understanding. This past October Dr. Bishara performed a scar revision procedure on me and the results were fabulous! Everything is healing very well and I am more than pleased with the results. I greatly appreciated Dr. Bishara and his staff and their diligence in working hard to ensure I was fully satisfied with my results. I highly recommend Paragon Plastic Surgery for your cosmetic surgery needs. Thank you Dr. Bishara and the entire Paragon staff.read more

... I had my 1st hydrafacial performed by Britt. She was welcoming and educated on the facial. I'm picky with whom I normally get my facials from so to feel comfortable by her was a huge relief.read more

... I had my first appointment today, and I was extremely impressed with the staff. The receptionist was friendly, and answered all my questions...Warm and friendly personality. I encountered other members of the staff but the names eludes me. Blame my age. However, they were friendly and helpful. Dr B’s “bedside manner” was impeccable! I have NO complaints, and I am happy to find a “new home” for my cosmetic needs.Thank you! You ladies and Dr B rock!read more
... Dr Bishara’s office staff is amazing. I have had the hydro facials and pixel laser and have had fabulous results. Angela is so amazing with the work she does and so full of information to help with my beauty regiment. Love this facility!!read more
... Angela is truly a facial skincare guru! She is amazing, she discuss with me all my concerns, what to expect, and how to properly take care of my skin. The hydrafacial i received was not only the most relaxing experience that i have ever received. After the facial Angela went over product that my skin would benefit from. I can't wait to go backread more
... Dr. Bishara told me my hair transplant would change my life....and It did... Financially! 15K and my hair looks about the same 15 months after the transplant. I do have limited growth in the procedure areas but not the thick or full coverage I expected. I am disappointed to say the least and now stuck with the option of shaving my investment..
During a follow up consultation in July 2018 (procedure done May 2017) Dr. Bishara said I had continued to have hair loss and asked me what I was doing to counter the continued hair loss.... Nothing was my answer because this was not discussed until now. I really think this is his go to excuse... Some of his other reviews say the same! I would think this would be something that should be discussed extensively as a possibility before the procedure and not after, but that might be bad for business! When I brought up the fact that Dr. Bishara had given me his word that he always makes things right... He told me he felt we had exhausted my donor area and that another transplant would not be an option... If you are considering a hair transplant I would think long and hard about what your expectations are and ask whatever doctor you use, what is the worst case scenario for me and options if the procedure does not give you the results you expect!read more
... Doctor’s bedside manner was great, but the staff from beginning to end, treated me like a number, eager to get me in and out so they can go about their stuff. Im new to all of these procedures, and this is a small business, so I was expecting more sincere genuine care from them. I also didn’t see any results, not even after several treatments. I did everything that was recommended. I’m so upset that I don’t even want to call and complain because I know it wouldn’t matter to a place like this. They never followed up with me to see how my results turned out. A business that cares and who want efficient work for their patients always make sure you’re happy. especially when thousands of dollars is wasted. I do
not recommend them.read more
... Extremely unprofessional! Doctor has no bed side manner and works on people appearance judges them. But yet he is sloopy and doesn't take care of his own self. The staff always seems so unhappy. I would avoid the place at all cost.read more
... For hair restoration, this is the absolute last place you want to be. He is not an expert, he is only good at selling you that he is. He has good bedside manner but do not let that fool you (He fooled me. I thought I had found a great doctor but I was so wrong). He is extremely dishonest when reviewing results. He promises the world then only delivers 10% of what he promised. When you call him out on it, he blames you the patient for the poor results... it is so distasteful, it makes me sick to my stomach that I trusted him. I had multiple surgeries with this doctor, I was foolish to trust him but I did and still came away with terrible results. I want other people to avoid that experience which is why I am writing this review.People who are losing their hair are already in enough pain then you go to a doctor thinking you can trust them to help your situation but instead Dr. Bishara exploits you, compounding that pain. He may respond to this review refuting it or trying to explain away what happened to me, that is expected.Go see a doctor who specializes in hair restoration not someone who buys an expensive machine and does hair on the side to make more money. Find a good doctor and do not make an emotional decision like I did by going with the first doctor you visit because you just want to get more hair right away.You do not have to take my word for it but I hope it leads you to more research for your own hair restoration.(My name is not on the review because this is a private medical matter)read more
... Very disappointed of this place, if you want to do something to feel better and look good this is not the right place, go to a real doctor that care about his patients not only for the money, this doctor only made me lose my Money is sad people like him we call them doctors I am very disappointed how he treaded me and he dint do what I ask him to do even if a show him picture and still leave my bumps and bruises if u r planing get something done please do not go to this place u will regret when u see that u money went to the trash and he will never going to help u or fix something that he having doing wrong, and honestly I do not want you to feel like I do, I don’t want this happen to you, I hope before u got here think twice and no later be sad like I’m is so many places and I’m sure so many real Doctors that cares for their patients. I went to this place and ask nicely to fix what he did wrong he couldn’t help me or do anything about it. So please please think twice before u go to this place and see Doctor Mark A Bishara .read more
