Robotic Hair Transplants

 
You never thought that a robot would be doing any type of surgery. Well the time is here! So maybe the robot doesn’t do it all on his own, Dr. Mark Bishara maneuvers the Artas Robot to help get you the best quality follicular units. The Artas Robot is fairly new it was introduced to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons in 2008 and in 2011 it was cleared by the FDA! It is safe and reliable.
 
 

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!

Stress!

 
Physical trauma such as surgeries, illnesses, automobile accidents, pregnancy, and emotional stress can cause hair loss. Don’t worry, situations as such only cause hair loss temporarily. Having such physical trauma causes the your hair to go in a state of shock. As your body begins to heal and recover the hair lost will begin to grow back. As for emotional stress prevent having anxiety and overthinking, exercising and therapy can be great support.  Even the infamous El Chapo has experienced this… read more, https://latino.foxnews.com/latino/news/2016/08/08/imprisoned-drug-lord-joaquin-el-chapo-guzman-going-bald-out-stress-lawyer-says/
 

Vitamin A and Protein

 
Sometimes we see as taking more than needed vitamin supplements is doing our body good. Vitamin A containing supplements can trigger hair loss. Keep in mind that the daily dose of Vitamin A is 5,000 IU for adults. Lack of protein in ones diet can also shut down hair growth. Usually hair loss begins 2 to 3 months after protein intake drops. Controlling intake amounts of vitamin A and making sure your getting protein in will solve the issue.
 

Male Pattern Baldness or Heredity?

 
Both! Male pattern baldness is caused by a mixture of genes and hormones. MPB (male pattern baldness) follows a pattern in which hair is lost at the temples. Hair loss in women is known as androgenic or androgenetic alopecia. Women don’t usually have a receding hairline like men do. Women will have noticeable hair loss or thinning at the part. Both women and men benefit from minoxidil or rogaine to help grow and maintain the existing hair. Hair transplantation and PRP treatments are also and option.
 

Hypothyroidism

 
Having an underactive thyroid gland can cause hair loss as well. Your thyroid gland produces hormones that interact with your metabolism and growth. When it is not producing enough hormones it affects your hair causing it to fall out. Taking synthetic thyroid medication and getting thyroid levels to normal should take care of the issue.
 

Alopecia Areata

 
Alopecia Areata is a result of an overactive immune system. As our immune system is going it targets our hair as a foreign object and attacks causing hair loss in round patches through out the scalp. Steroid injections and romaine are the go to’s when treating alopecia areata.
 

Hair Styling

 
Over styling our hair with tight braids, ponytails or using products such as hot oils or relaxers can hurt our hair. Doing these types of treatments or the way we style our hair can cause root damage causing your hair to be lost permanently. Limiting the amount of use of these products or hair styles will help us keep our hair longer. Avoid using heat products to once a week if possible.

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.

Finding the Right Hair Dr!



Robotic devices are more commonly used for many different types of surgical procedures. One being Robotic Fue, which just happens to be one of Dr. Mark. A. Bishara’s top procedures at the Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa. Dr. Mark. A. Bishara has done many robotic FUE’s. From Hair transplantations to beards and even eyebrows. As tedious as it sounds Dr. Mark A. Bishara and his staff at the Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa are very professional and experienced.
 

The Invention

Restoration robotics is a medical device company who created  a robot called the ARTAS to help assist in hair transplantation. The Artas Robot consists of a chair in which the patient would sit through out the whole hair transplantation. Aside from the chair is the actual Artas Robot which Dr. Mark A. Bishara controls using a computer. The   Artas Robotic device has been FDA cleared.

What it does

The Artas Robot has a robotic arm which is being controlled to dissect hair follicles from the back and sides of the scalp. In order for the robotic arm to detect the patients hair, Dr. Mark A. Bishara staff shaves the back of the patients head. Unlike the traditional strip removal of the patients donor area the Artas Robot is designed to perform a follicular unit extraction using a special 0.7 to 1mm diameter tool. That only means one thing, no linear scar. The cuts using the Artas Robot will leave a scar that is barely visible to the naked eye.
