About bioidentical hormone therapy for men

The human body produces several different types of hormones that are responsible for regulating our mood, metabolism, blood sugar, reproductive system, and overall health. A hormonal imbalance can cause all kinds of health issues. For this reason, skilled dermatologist Dr. Melissa Chiang and plastic surgeon Dr. Younghoon Cho are pleased to offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Bioidentical hormones are synthetic substances made from plant estrogens, which are chemically identical to the natural hormones produced by the human body. Call Chiseled in Spring, TX to learn more. 

Candidates for hormone therapy

You might be a good candidate for bioidentical hormone therapy if you:

  • Have trouble losing or gaining weight
  • Have issues with sleeping through the night
  • Have trouble concentrating or experience memory loss
  • Suffer from abnormal mood swings or bouts of depression
  • Experience erectile dysfunction or low libido
  • Are overall fatigued or have low energy

Treatment Process

The first step in your treatment process is to undergo a comprehensive health assessment with your general practitioner, which often includes a blood test. From there, our office can coordinate with your primary to determine whether any further testing is necessary. Dr. Chiang or Dr. Cho will sit down with you to discuss your full medical history to determine if you're a good candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

Once you're cleared for treatment, we'll schedule your appointment. At Chiseled, we usually use bioidentical pellets for hormone therapy. We'll use a local anesthetic to numb the target area (most commonly the hip) and will then insert the pellets through a small incision. You may experience some mild bruising, swelling, redness, or bleeding at the target site, but this is normal and should dissipate on its own. If you experience any abnormal or lasting symptoms, do not hesitate to call our office. 

After your appointment

A few weeks after your pellet has been placed, we'll order another blood test to evaluate your progress and determine if your dosage should be altered. For most patients, new pellets will need to be inserted every 3 – 6 months to maintain results. Common side effects of bioidentical pellets include bloating, swelling of the hands or feet, mood changes, and hair growth. Once your body adjusts to its new hormone levels, these symptoms should dissipate.
