As with any toy or gadget everything eventually gets an upgrade. In this case the Robotic ARTAS FUE is the upgrade for the old Strip method for hair restoration. More and more people are opting for a Robotic FUE procedure as there are many things that differentiate it from the strip method.  Dr Mark Bishara, the board certified hair restoration surgeon of North Texas, specializes in robotic hair restoration and his practice is a Center of Excellence awarded to very few robotic hair transplants surgeons by Restoration Robotics.
Making the decision to do a strip surgery vs the Robotic FUE can be tough! With a strip procedure your looking at not being able to wear your hair short (unless you don’t mind people seeing the linear scar) as with the Robotic FUE you can wear your hair which ever way you like because the tiny dots are easily disguised. Pain after a Robotic FUE with ARTAS at most will require tylenol or ibuprofen as for a strip procedure most patients need some prescribed narcotic pain medication. Recovery with a Robotic FUE does not have much of down time- 1.5 to 2 days. Most patients return to normal activities 3-4 days after versus with strip it can take up to 2 or more weeks as you will require more time to heal from the incision.
So as you see the improvement has been great and the Robotic FUE ARTAS transplant works wonders. Whats even better is that Dr. Mark Bishara does the Robotic FUE at both his locations, Mansfield and Southlake!  Give us a call and schedule your free consultation, don’t let more time pass by, get started today restoring your hair with the Paragon Hair Clinic and with Dr Mark Bishara, MD, FISHRS.

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! Vitamin A is another cause to hair loss. Intaking too much Vitamin A puts your hair at risk!  Even low levels of iron, thyroid, and low Vitamin D levels can cause hair loss.

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!

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.

What causes Traction Alopecia?

 
Traction alopecia is a pattern of baldness you may be experiencing due to traction or pulling of the hair. Common causes for traction alopecia are:

  • -Tight Pony tails
  • -Tight Braids
  • -Extensions
  • -Long term use of wigs
  • -Relaxers or hair dye
  • -Headgear(helmets when wearing to tight or daily use)

Keep in mind that if your hair is damaged, you may have some reversal after 6-8 months. If the follicle is dead, only option is to get help with hair restoration and Dr. Mark Bishara at The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa is just the right person to consult with.
 

Can i regain my old hair by long term use of minoxidil 5%?

Will minoxidil help grow new hair? The answer is No. The purpose of minoxidil is to help stop hair loss and reverse some miniaturization of the hair adding density to existing hair. The only way to adding new hair is via hair transplantation.
 

Will blood test rule out other hair loss causes, other than male pattern baldness?

Anyone can seek out blood test to learn the cause of their hair loss, but don’t be surprised if everything comes back normal. Hypothyroidism can be indicative of hair loss, most men suffer form androgenic alopecia where your testosterone converts to DHT via 5 alpha reductase.

 

Can any treatments halt or reverse loss at temples recovering from CTE/TE?

Most physicians believe that CTE or TE will resolve on its own, therefore a specific treatment is not recommended. However, treating the hair gently, shampooing daily with a gentle shampoo is a great start.  As hard as it sounds, try not to obsess about the loss, this just adds unneeded stress to an already stressful situation.

 

Im 5 weeks post op from my FUE transplant and my hair is falling!

As the body heals and the tiny scabs fall off the scalp, it is natural for the scabs surrounding the short hairs to fall out with it.  Typically 2 to 3 days post procedure, blood vessel grow into the bottom of the follicular unit that was just transplanted, essentially cementing them in.  Any hair lost after that time will be replaced with new hairs.

18 and already have male pattern baldness?

It is definitely possible, the most important thing to  do is be evaluated. There are many treatments out there such as minoxidil, Propecia, Laser therapy, and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections. Dr. Mark Bishara at the Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa is highly experience in hair restoration. Coming in for a consultation will get you the best suitable treatment.
