We all know that botox works for wrinkles but did you know it can work for breasts? Botulinum toxin type A can now play a role in inhibiting one of the most serious breast surgery complications- capsular contracture.
Capsular contracture is an immune system response to foreign materials in the body. It mostly occurs from complications from breast implants and artificial joint prosthetics. It is followed by the formation of capsules of tightly woven collagen fibers tightening and compressing to the implant. It can occur in different grades and become very discomforting and painful to the touch.
Now researchers have found that botox can reduce the capsule thickness by injecting 0.5 mL into implant pockets and found it had also decreased inflammatory cells. Once validated in a clinical setting, this may be another use for the neurotoxin. In a published article in 2015 in the Archives of Plastic Surgery authors wrote about botox’s role and suggesting it may be effective in reducing keloid scarring, which is similar to implant capsules.
Current uses for Botox include treating facial wrinkles, hyperhydrosis, blepharospasm and migraines. This could be just another beneficial use for the neurotoxin after performing more patient research.

As a woman, it’s important to not only take care of your body, but feel good about your appearance as well. Having hair in unwanted places can be annoying for women who are constantly having to shave or wax just to maintain hair growth in places such as the bikini area, arms, legs, lip, and the underarms. Here at Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, located in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, we take pride in our experienced aestheticians who go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied with your results throughout the 5-9 treatments.
How does laser hair removal work?
The hair follicles receive beams of light and absorb them, which in turn destroys the hair in that particular area. Nearly anyone with unwanted facial or body hair can benefit from this procedure. The ideal candidate would be a patient who has dark hair and light skin. However, our lasers are safe for all skin tones. Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa recommend you visit our practice for a consultation to see if you are a candidate for this procedure.
Multiple treatments are needed due to hair growth at different times and in different areas under your skin. Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa will schedule you in intervals of four to six weeks between your treatments with our aestheticians. Laser hair removal is pain-free, unlike waxing or other alternatives. The aestheticians here at Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa will tell you that the side effects are minimal. After each treatment, you may experience redness, puffiness and sunburn sensations for a few days.
Women in today’s society are typically hard-working mothers who average 40+ hours a week and are constantly on the go. Do you ever catch yourself looking in the mirror thinking of ways to fix the look of being dressed or tired all of the time? Here at Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, we want you to consider these 4 reasons as to why you might want a brow/eyelid lift:
Many woman face the struggle of low self-esteem when they are no longer in their 20’s and are starting to face sagging eyebrows/eyelids. The term “if you look good, you feel good” doesn’t always apply to the clothes you wear. This term can apply to cosmetics and the way you feel about your appearance. Dr. Bishsara and his staff at Paragon Plastic Surgery & Medspa want you to be happy with the way you look.
Control the uncontrollable
No matter how many creams you use or the number of times you remove your makeup each night, you can’t help the sagging of your eyebrows or eyelids without the help of Dr. Bishara. This procedure can revitalize drooping or lined foreheads and help you look less angry, sad, or tired and is often combined with others to improve the look of your eyes. The muscles above your eyes will also be altered to smooth lines and raise the eyebrows for a more youthful appearance.
If you’re considering a brow/eyelid lift, you’ve probably already several appointments to receive Botox. Botox usually lasts anywhere between 2-6 months, depending on the person receiving injections. Because of this, patients have to continue to call Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa and make appointments to see Dr. Bishara to receive their new injection. With a brow/eyelid lift, you won’t have to continually come in for your routine appointment. You will already have the results that Botox patients strive to have!

Tummy tuck or breast augmentation is what most people think; for Mitchell Hunter, it was full face transplant. Only a handful of individuals in the world have ever experienced what its like to get a whole new face.
It all started in 2001 when Mitchell did the unthinkable, saved a woman from being terribly injured by a live wire following a car accident and in turn suffered the strike, losing his face and leg. Before the transplant in 2011 at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Hunter couldn’t avoid awkward stares and time with his son without attracting a lot of unwanted attention.
Five years later he is speaking out for the first time. “I would like to tell people just not to worry about the small things, live life,” says Hunter. “Tell the people you love you love them because you never know when that can be taken away.”
Life is a lot different for Mitchell today and thanks to a donor and over 30 doctors, nurses and anesthesiologists, Hunter has a new lease on life, a new job and plans to attend Indy 500.
