Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

At Rejuvene Plastic Surgery, we know the importance of balanced hormone levels, which is why we offer hormone therapy, specifically bioidentical pellet therapy. This treatment process uses natural, bioidentical hormones derived from natural sources like yam and other plants to balance male and female hormones that begin to decrease with the aging process. The treatment improves the quality of everyday life, reverses some of the most common signs of aging, and leads to sexual rejuvenation for both men and women. It helps promote men’s sexual wellness, increases confidence, encourages weight loss, and helps increase lean muscle mass.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

Men who suffer from imbalanced hormones typically have low testosterone levels. Testosterone is an important hormone, and it regulates more than just the male sex drive but also plays a role in many other vital body processes. When testosterone levels begin to drop, men may notice that their workouts become harder, and they begin to lose muscle mass and start gaining weight.

The Importance of Testosterone

Testosterone is a muscle-building hormone, and optimal levels will help promote healthy regeneration and reduced recovery time after workouts. If you’ve noticed that you are gaining weight around your midsection and are dealing with some other negative symptoms, low testosterone may be to blame. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for men with bioidentical pellet therapy will increase testosterone levels to what is considered optimal to alleviate symptoms and allow men to enjoy all of the hormone-balancing benefits that come with this treatment. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for men can treat some of the most common symptoms of a hormone deficiency, including:
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Weight gain 
  • Decreased bone density
  • Headaches
  • Low libido
  • Mental fog
  • Irritability, anxiety, or depression
  • Low energy levels
  • Lack of motivation

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

Women also suffer from hormonal deficiencies, typically during menopause, which is why we offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women. However, hormonal imbalances can affect women of all ages, and BHRT with pellet therapy is an effective way to increase female hormones to what would be considered optimal to alleviate symptoms and improve the quality of daily life. For women, pellet therapy is often referred to as estrogen therapy and delivers some immediate results. Your pellet will contain the exact amount of estrogen and testosterone your body needs. Our experts will determine your required dosage based on your blood panel, body weight, and age. Bioidentical pellet therapy for women can reverse some of the most common symptoms of menopause, increases energy levels, and promote women’s sexual wellness.

BHRT With Pellet Therapy

At our office, we offer BHRT with bioidentical pellet therapy. Men and women suffering from an imbalance can schedule an initial consultation to determine and confirm their hormonal deficiencies, and then our experts can confirm treatment candidacy and then move forward with the treatment process. Hormone pellets contain all of the testosterone the male body needs and the estrogen and testosterone that the female body needs to alleviate symptoms and improve the quality of life.

Hormone Pellets and How They Work

Hormone pellets provide both men and women with a simple and effective way to balance hormones. During the treatment process, one of our expert providers will create a tiny incision in the upper buttocks after sanitizing the area and preparing it for the pellet insertion process. Before the incision is made, the area will be numbed with a local anesthetic which makes the process virtually painless. The pellet will be inserted and then covered with a bandage, and your treatment will be complete.

Bioidentical Pellet Therapy Follow-Up Treatments

It’s important that you schedule regular follow-up treatments every three months to have your blood levels tested to ensure that your pellet dosage is accurate. You’ll only need three insertion appointments each year to maintain balanced hormone levels. Most patients begin to notice increased energy levels within the first month of the treatment process and improved sexual wellness. It typically takes anywhere from six to eight months to notice an increase in lean muscle mass. Results vary among patients, and it may take up to two pellet insertion treatments before you begin to notice the full effects of balanced hormones. 

The Hormone Balancing Benefits of Hormone Therapy

Everything will change when you go from living with a hormonal imbalance to living with balanced hormones. Some of the symptoms you didn’t even associate with hormone deficiencies may improve after beginning the hormone therapy treatment process. Imbalanced hormone levels will affect your physical, mental, and emotional health. Once you begin this treatment process, you will have increased energy levels, reach a healthy weight, increase lean muscle mass, and watch as your negative symptoms resolve themselves.

It Improves Men’s Sexual Wellness

Low libido and sexual dysfunction are common symptoms associated with low testosterone levels in men. Pellet therapy boosts libido and, in doing so, promotes men’s sexual wellness. It will also help resolve certain types of sexual dysfunction in men, including erectile dysfunction related to low testosterone levels and other forms of sexual dysfunction.

It Results in Sexual Rejuvenation for Women

After beginning this treatment process, women who are amid menopause or simply have a hormone deficiency from other factors like hormonal imbalances, pregnancy, medication side effects, or other conditions will experience sexual rejuvenation. Once we begin pellet therapy, you will notice an improvement in your libido, promoting healthy relationships and improving your quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions about BHRT

What is bio-identical hormone replacement (BHRT) pellet therapy?

This therapy is the most convenient and effective method of hormone replacement available. Hormone pellets are administered via a pellet that is painlessly inserted, under the skin, on the fatty hip area of the body. Once the pellet is inserted, a steady, low dose of natural hormones flow directly into the bloodstream whenever the body needs it. This gives the body the ability to control the release of the hormones just as it did when the ovaries or testes were functioning normally. Pellet hormone therapy has been thoroughly documented and researched in medical journals since 1939.

What are bio-identical hormone pellets made from?

Pellets contain natural plant sources of estrogen and testosterone. The estrogen and testosterone utilized in the pellets is compounded by hand, in a compounding pharmacy, and formed into a pellet shape. The pellets are dosed according to your bloodwork results and symptoms and then inserted into the hip area using a small micro-incision.

I have no libido. Can pellet hormone therapy help?

Yes. Hormone balance will greatly improve your sexual desire. Most patients experience a better response from their bodies with sex as well as an increase in sensitivity and intensity.

How long will it take pellet hormone therapy to start working after my insert?

Most patients report they begin to experience improvement within several days of receiving their pellets. Testosterone pellets may take two weeks to express their benefits.

How often do you monitor hormone levels?

You will have your initial hormone level checked to determine if and what dose of hormones you need. After your pellet insert, we will test your blood one month after the insert to capture the “peak” therapeutic level and to see if the first dose was sufficient. Then your blood will be tested 3 months after your pellet insert to capture the “plateau” level of therapy. This plateau level will determine what dose will be inserted at your second pellet insert. Regular monitoring is crucial to ensure your hormones are in proper balance. Without regular monitoring, you may be receiving too much or too little hormones to keep the proper balance.

How often will I need hormone therapy?

You began your pellet therapy because your body was unable to make the proper balance of hormones anymore. The pellets usually last from 3-6 months. After that time, you will receive another insert of pellets. As long as you are receiving pellets at regular intervals, your symptoms will be managed. If you stop pellet therapy, your symptoms most likely will return.

Why BHRT Pellet Therapy versus Testosterone Injections?

Testosterone injections deliver a less steady dose of testosterone than pellets. The injections are done weekly or bi-weekly versus the pellets which are inserted two to three times a year. The pellets dissolve over months, to deliver a more steady dose of testosterone. The pellets are also readily available and naturally dose adjust if they body demands more, such as in heavy exercise, than the injections.

Why doesn’t my doctor suggest pellet hormone therapy, or BHRT, as an option?

Most physicians are educated in the use of synthetic hormones. More than likely your physician has heard to BHRT, but was never trained in the use of bio-identical hormones or bio-identical pellets.

As a woman, do I need estrogen?

Your bloodwork, symptoms and a consult with the doctor will determine if you will benefit from estrogen pellets. Estrogen is the most important hormone a woman has, protecting her from heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s disease. Synthetic estrogen does not offer these universal benefits.

As a woman, do I need testosterone?

Your bloodwork, symptoms and a consult with the doctor will determine if you will benefit from testosterone pellets. Testosterone gives women mental clarity, libido and muscle tone. Without it, women often complain of mental confusion, weight gain and poor muscle growth even with regular exercise.

As a man, why do I need testosterone?

Testosterone is a man’s most important hormone. Your bloodwork, symptoms and a consult with the doctor will determine if your body is deficient in testosterone. Without it, you may experience fatigue, anxiety, loss of libido, reduced sexual performance or prostate problems. Men with low testosterone also have been shown to have a shorter life span and three times the chance of developing Alzheimer’s.
