Is a facelift too invasive for you but you would still like to experience dramatic results that you thought only a fountain of youth could acheive? Here at The Paragon Plastic Surgery & Medspa, you can receive a combination of Ultherapy and injectable wrinkle/filler treatments, such as Botox, Radiesse, or Juvederm, to create a fresh, vibrant new you. These treatments all offer a different course of action in providing a more youthful look for our patients, but when combined, they work synergistically to create a harmonious result that both works on a soft tissue and muscular level.

Before and After Botox & Juvederm Voluma


Botox, for example, combats wrinkles on a muscular level by minimizing muscle contraction and relaxing hyperactive muscles. Alternately, filler is used to add volume to designated areas on the face while Ultherapy works on a tissue-level to stimulate collagen, lifting and tightening the skin as a result. As you can see, this combination of preventing the muscle contraction that causes wrinkles with Botox, adding volume with Filler, and tightening the skin with Ultherapy, have the power to create a balanced and complete look that would not be achieved from just doing one treatment by itself.

Ultherapy - Face


How long you should wait in between each treatment, and in what order they should be done, is an opinion that varies from doctor to doctor. At our own Paragon Plastic Surgery & Medspa, Dr. Mark Bishara recommends waiting about two weeks after Ultherapy to receive any injections. This short wait time will give any swelling that may happen as a result of Ultherapy time to settle so that how much filler/Botox needs to be used can be determined. This incredible combination of treatments yields fabulous results that can be yours! Call us now to schedule a consultation with Dr. Mark Bishara to discuss this as an option for you.

Botox newbies: I know you’ve probably heard about it. And I know you may already have an impression of what Botox can do- and how it can sometimes backfire, turning an otherwise expressive face into a plastic mannequin that screams I JUST GOT BOTOX. This is not among the results that are achieved here at Paragon Plastic Surgery. When you come to us, you are not coming to simply get Botox. You can get Botox just about anywhere, after all. You are coming to us so that a highly skilled doctor, our own Dr. Mark Bishara, can examine your face, have an in-depth conversation with you about your desired results, and use a gentle touch and sense of artistry to create a more youthful, tighter look that you thought was impossible to achieve without a time machine! In other words, you are coming to us because here we have a doctor who sees it as much more than an injectable. Dr. Bishara sees it as an opportunity to give people a new sense of confidence and retain the youth that we know is inside of us, even when our bodies show otherwise.

When you come to us for your first Botox appointment, we will take your photographs on our very own on-site VECTRA 3D imaging machine. This will allow Dr. Bishara to examine your face through our special software and make any adjustments to your face that you may be interested in so that you can preview how it will look before getting it done. Once you and Dr. Bishara agree on a plan of action, we will take you back into one of our spa-like procedure rooms where we will clean your face, begin numbing you with ice or numbing cream, and begin your injections. It is a quick and easy process and you will feel at ease and comfortable in our care. After coming back for a follow-up appointment so that you and Dr. Bishara can go over your results, you will be able to come to us on a consistent basis for any touch-ups or other procedures you may want.

Here at Paragon Plastic Surgery & Medspa, we not only offer a vast array of cosmetic procedures and treatments, but we offer an experience where you are recognized as a unique individual. No two people have the same “Botox” experience, and where you receive your injections, how many units are administered, and which kinds of injections/fillers are used is saved into our advanced filing system after every single appointment. This provides a procedural roadmap that is tailored to your specific needs so that we can recreate, adjust, and fine-tune your treatment to give you the results you dream of! At our clinic, your experience will be remembered, taken into consideration, and will help us maintain an ongoing relationship with you where your wants and desires are consistently being met.

The holiday season with all its parties, family gatherings, and New Year’s resolutions can be stressful for men and women of all ages because this is typically a special time when they want to look and feel their best despite all the stress frequently associated with holiday events.
Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. and his staff at The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Medspa can help each individual man or woman look and feel their best for all holiday events coming up.  Dr. Bishara takes the time to cultivate individual relationships with his patients in order to assure that they receive their desired look.  He uses the term “patient” because he says, “I feel the term patient is a more personal and appropriate term because I am working with people in personal ways.”
In his new state-of-the art facility completed in 2014, he offers the full gamut of cosmetic procedures such as robotic hair restoration, breast augmentation, tummy tuck and a variety of laser procedures. The calming music and soothing décor of his new facility create an atmosphere to ease the nerves of any anxious patient.  “Sometimes patients come in extremely nervous, and my goal is to provide a calming, relaxing environment to reduce their anticipated anxiety,” he said.  Additionally, Dr. Bishara takes the time to listen, discuss and explain all treatment options before outlining an appropriate treatment plan.
In his Paragon office in Mansfield, Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. offers “Wrinkle-Free Wednesday.”  Patients can come in for Botox and Xeomin treatments at discounted rates.  It’s easy to see why this is the most popular and busiest day of the week for Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. and his staff.  He treats hundreds of patients seeking these non-invasive, preventive procedures from 8am until 8pm.  “We go through enough Botox to remove every single wrinkle from an elephant’s skin,” he grinned, “but my goal is for them to still look like themselves,” he explained.
Also, as an AAAHC certified facility and dual trained surgeon, he can provide acute care as well as cosmetic surgical services.  His goal is to make sure that every patient’s needs are satisfactorily and effectively met.  In the spirit of giving this holiday season, Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. plans to open a combined clinic that will offer reduced rates for general surgical procedures including lumpectomy, advanced laparoscopic hernia and gallbladder procedures, and varicose vein ablation.
“The current medical system in this country is not sustainable.  Hospitals and surgery centers charging $11,000 for a 15-minute procedure is simply not feasible when it could be offered at a more reasonable price,” he said.  These large centers are sometimes bound to hold pricing high due their contracted rates with insurance companies.  As a responsible physician, he wants to provide clinical services that promote and foster a medical system that is sustainable and affordable.  That is why he has announced the addition of four advanced laparoscopic surgeons to the staff at the Paragon Surgery Center in Mansfield.  Surgical procedures are now being offered to all patients state-wide for a cash price that is often less than some deductible plans.  Although this system is intended to be cash based, some patients will still be able to submit the charges for reimbursement through their out of network benefits.
As his services continue to grow and expand, Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. has two other locations for the convenience of his patients; Southlake and North Park.
As the holiday season and the new year approach, let Dr. Bishara and his staff help you look and feel your best.  Call one of his three convenient locations at 817-473-2120 or email [email protected] to make an appointment and ensure that you enjoy the holidays knowing that you truly look your best!

Kybella (Deoxycholic Acid) Injection is an injectable treatment for both men and women with moderate to severe fat below the chin. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. administers this rather simple yet life changing treatment at all three of our Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa locations. Fat can accumulate beneath the chin due to aging, genetics and weight gain. Kybella proactively targets stubborn fat below the chin (submental fullness) that can be resistant to diet and exercise alone. An active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps breakdown and absorb fat. When Kybella is injected into the fatty tissue it starts going to work and destroying fat cells immediately. Once the fat cells are destroyed they will no longer be able to store or accumulate fat. Up to 6 treatments may be administered by Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. at the Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa with each treatment being one month apart. Together, you and Mark A. Bishara M.D. P.A., decide how many treatments will best suite your desired results.  Dr Bishara offers this Kybella injections in Mansfield, Texas every Wednesday.  Dr Bishara also offers Kybella injections in Southlake, Texas,  and Dallas, Texas throughout the week.

The goal of almost any elective plastic surgery procedure is to achieve a more youthful look. But just how many years can you actually drop? Nine. That’s according to a recent study in the Archives of Plastic Surgery. Of course it depends on which surgery you have done and how many treatments you choose to do too.
At the University of Toronto, 40 volunteer medical students studied the photographs of 60 plastic surgery patients aged 45 to 72. In their “before” photos, the volunteers guessed near the correct age, assuming the patients were about 1.7 years younger than their actually age. Then the volunteers studied photos of the patients after they received either facelifts and necklifts; facelifts, necklifts and eyelid surgery; or eyelid surgery plus lifts to the face, neck and forehead.
The first group (facelifts and necklifts) were guessed to be 5.7 years younger. The second group (facelifts, neck lifts, and eyelids) were perceived to be 7.5 years younger. And the last group that had the most surgeries (facelifts, necklifts, forehead lifts and eyelid surgery) were guessed to be 8.5 years younger than their true age.
Some people may not want to undergo a full facelift and if so, there are alternatives:

ISOLATED COSMETIC SURGERIES

For people with less facial aging, a neck liftforehead lift, mid-face lift, eyelid surgery, or chin surgery can minimize the effects of aging and offer a fresher, more youthful look.

WHAT ARE THE OTHER OPTIONS FOR A SAGGING FACE?

There are a number of surgical and non-surgical options that can improve one’s cosmetic appearance: fillerslaser skin-tightening procedureslasersfat contouringIPL Fotofacial and Botox. Each has benefits and drawbacks. Mini procedures do not produce the long lasting maximum improvement that is achieved with a natural appearing artistically performed lift performed by an expert experienced plastic surgeon. The best result is achieved by a combination of elevating the sagging tissues, removing the excess skin, contouring the fat, and adding micro-fat grafts or fillers where there is a deficiency.
Besides a facelift, Juvederm Voluma also helps volume loss in cheeks.  JuvedermTM VolumaTM is the latest of the Juvederm range of hyaluronic acid fillers specifically designed to restore volume in areas of volume loss. Common areas include the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin. Additionally, due to its versatility it is also suitable for adding definition to the jaw line.
