what is 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 (BHRT). 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.

how does bioidentical hormone therapy work?

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. 

what should I expect after bhrt treatment?

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. 

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy FAQ

What causes hormone imbalances?
Hormones are biological vehicles that help with supporting your body's processes. Any number of factors could result in a disproportion in your hormone measurements.

How can you tell if your hormones are unbalanced?
Various reasons may lead to an imbalance in your hormone levels. Among these are getting older, lifestyle changes, ongoing anxiety, drugs you take, and various health concerns. Hormone imbalances also present differently in men. For example, women can have unreliable menstrual cycles while men have diminished sexual stamina.

What are some long-term benefits of BHRT?
Hormone replacement therapy assists the body and brain's return to optimal function. Hormones can enhance your mood, rest, and drive, as well as offer a break to patients who have become embarrassed, flustered by, or discouraged about their hormone spikes. Our team at Chiseled will provide more information when you come for an initial hormone assessment.
