Are you ready for the latest FDA cleared, non invasive procedure that is going to help lifting your skin??
Well Ultherapy is here and its bringing in many clients to the Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa.
So what is exactly is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a procedure used to lift the skin. It can lift the skin under the chin, eyebrow and neck! Using focused ultrasound imaging it helps incite the growth of collagen. Ultherapy ultrasound focuses on top layer of the skin as it would when going through surgery although this does not involve any cutting whatsoever!
There is no pain during the procedure When performed correctly.   Some patients can experience some discomfort which  subsides when the treatment has been completed.  Ultherapy generates a reaction in the skin which kickstarts the production of new collagen which replaces the old.  Some patients may notice the difference immediately after their treatment, but results in general are visible within a 2 to 3 month period.
People with maturing skin are great candidates for Ultherapy.   Ultherapy does not take place of a face lift or neck lift but it helps the people that aren’t quite ready to go in for surgery. Ultherapy is also great for people who want to stay ahead of the game. Who wouldn’t want to stay looking young longer?

The year is flying by. One year older, Yikes! The worst part is that not only do we add another number to our age but our appearance begins to change as well. Wrinkles start to show more and more. As if wrinkles weren’t bad enough our skin begins to droop as well. Sagging neck is a common one.
So what exactly causes a sagging neck?  At the Paragon Plastic Surgery and Medspa we know that loose skin is a part of aging but can also be genetics along with weight.  Dr Bishara says, “Excessive sun exposure can have a lot to do with it as well. ”  Yes, those uv rays can be very harmful!

What you can do to fix it!



At The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa we offer surgical and non-surgical treatments to help with aging skin. Facelifts have become quite popular with Dr. Mark Bishara as no one likes to look older nor have loose skin. A facelift counteracts the effects of aging, gravity, sun exposure and stress by removing fat and tightening skin and muscles, giving your face a fresher, more youthful look and reducing the appearance of wrinkles, creases and fat deposits. Many patients look 10 to 15 years younger after a facelift.
If surgery is not what your looking then a NIR Skin Tightening treatment can help. Near infrared technology is used to penetrate deep heat to the deepest layers of tissue. This stimulates collagen production and tightens lax skin. Nearly any patient seeking fuller, tighter skin can benefit from laser skin tightening as a safe, noninvasive and effective procedure. The laser skin tightening procedure can be fully customized to help each patient receive the best possible results, depending on the skin condition, size and location of the targeted area and the strength of the laser exposure.





What is a Facelift?

A facelift purpose is to remove excess skin and tighten the underlying tissues and muscles on the face and neck. Facelifts are also used to correct any sagging in the face and those annoying hard to get rid off double chins. If you are experiencing any of the above then Dr. Mark Bishara at The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa is the surgeon you want to see!

What are facelift steps?

Ok so you’ve met with Dr. Mark Bishara and now its time to get things done. The incisions that will be made depend on the area that needs the change. After the incisions have been made there will be various degrees of “undermining” performed on the skin as the deep layers of your skin get lifted. What is undermining? Undermining is the separation of the overlying skin of the face and neck to the muscles and deep tissues of the skin. Soon after your skin will be raised from the temples, cheeks and neck and lifted and reposition. Any excess skin and fat will then be removed. The skin will then redrape over the new underlying structure and close with stitches.  You will then be wrapped with padded dressing.

How long will it take to recover?

Walking and light activities can be resumed 3 to 7 days after surgery. Avoid anything that puts pressure on your face such as lifting, bending, and straining for 7 to 14 days.  Try to suppress any forceful coughing or sneezing for 2 weeks. Avoid aerobic or heavy exercise for at least 3 weeks following surgery. Some swelling and bruising will develop and is minimized by resting in an elevated position. Rest and sleep in a reclining position with your head elevated 45 degrees for at least 2 weeks after surgery. You can resume make up after stitches have been removed. Scarring can be virtually invisible behind the ear, as incisions are usually made in hidden areas where the scars will look like small wrinkles.



Plastic surgery is one of the most common procedures performed in the United States and the transformative power compels thousands of men and women to go under the knife every year. Unlike most surgeries, cosmetic procedures are not medically necessary which can make it hard to analyze the demographics. While each individual’s needs and wants differ when it comes to choosing a procedure, the most popular cosmetic surgeries can be broken down by age group. While trends in plastic surgery vary from year to year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons 2012 statistics report shows that some procedures are consistently popular with certain age groups. Here’s why.

Nose reshaping is widespread among 13-19 year-old patients, simply because the nose you were born with is the nose you will have for life. While other parts of the body can change given time or lifestyle habits, the shape and structure of your nose changes the least. The skin does thicken and the cartilage can lose its support, but for the most part, the defining features remain constant throughout life. Adolescents who are approaching adulthood oftentimes turn to rhinoplasty to get a new start or a fresh look as they embark on milestones such as high school graduation or the start of college.
On the other hand, breast augmentation is a popular procedure for those who have gone through puberty: 20-29 year-olds. The breasts are typically fully formed by that age, and the size and shape are at a fixed point. Shifts in weight, pregnancy and lifestyle (bra usage) may alter breast size and shape but in an unpredictable way. This is a time when image is very important to women, so they seek larger breasts in order to boost their self-confidence and balance the proportions of their new adult figures.
Once men and women reach their 30’s, their metabolism begins to slow down. They notice a change in the way their bodies deposit fat even if their exercise pattern and diet have remained the same. Certain body parts store stubborn fat that is hard to lose even with healthy eating and exercise. Liposuction has traditionally been the remedy to this problem. We have seen an increase in the popularity of newer technologies that provide less invasive options for fat reduction. However, liposuction remains time honored and consistent in providing the most predictable results. A variety of techniques are available to safely remove fat and sculpt curves.
The 40’s are a time when the aging process really begins to set in. We typically start to see the earlier signs of aging around the eyes and forehead. The skin around the eye is prone to wrinkle and show redundancy. The upper eyelids and forehead can begin to droop and give a tired or sad appearance. Thus it’s no surprise that patients between the ages of 40-54 are likely to undergo an eyelid and/or brow lifting surgery in order to minimize these changes. The lower eyelids are treated by removing or tightening skin as well as treating fat pockets.
Finally, the facelift is an extremely popular procedure for those 55 and older. At this point, there are multiple parts of the face that need rejuvenating. The cheeks typically fall or deflate, the corners of the mouth turn down, jowls appear, the jawline loses its contour and the neck becomes loose and droopy at times, showing bands under the chin. A facelift helps restore a youthful appearance by addressing these parts that have aged including the eyelids, sagging of the neck and volume loss in the cheeks. Combinations of procedures can lift the brow, the mid face or cheek area and tighten the jaw line while treating jowls and reshaping the neck.
Of course everyone ages differently and each person’s goals are different, but these tend to be the most popular procedures by age group. Do any of these surprise you? What procedure have you been thinking about?
Dr. Mark Bishara provides a wide range of cosmetic procedures to help patients look and feel their best. These procedures are designed to improve the appearance of the face and body through minimally invasive techniques that provide highly effective results. Many of these procedures can be combined in order to achieve your desired appearance. Please call our office at (817) 473-2120 for more information.
