Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
It’s well known that hormone levels decrease with age, and that this change can have a negative impact on a wide range of characteristics including beauty, fitness, energy level, stamina, libido, and overall health and wellness. Worst of all, these changes can undermine your confidence and take some of the joy out of living.
The good news is that all of these characteristics can be restored to healthy, youthful levels through bioidentical hormone therapy. Both women and men can benefit from the customized treatments we develop to address specific challenges.
Not a “one treatment fits all” approach, our bioidentical hormone therapy takes into account the complex interplay of hormones in each person’s body to both elevate levels and restore natural balance. The result is that you recover the sense of youthful vitality that’s been missing from your life.
Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy
Women who have bioidentical hormone therapy enjoy a number of benefits. This can include a decrease or elimination of many symptoms of aging and menopause such as hot flashes, fatigue, depression, mood changes, and weight gain. With your hormones back in balance, you’ll feel younger, happier, and healthier than you have in years.
Men find that hormone replacement therapy increases their energy level and stamina, and also makes it easier to develop and maintain lean muscle mass. Not only does the treatment restore the appropriate level of testosterone in your body, it also addresses estrogen and other hormones that can fluctuate when testosterone declines. From restoring your libido to improving your overall wellness, hormone therapy can truly turn back the clock.
Natural, Plant-Derived Hormones
At Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg, we use hormones made from plants and other natural sources. These hormones are called “bioidentical” because they are exactly like those your body produces. We find that they deliver superior results as compared to the synthetic hormones manufactured by pharmaceutical companies.
Bioidentical Testosterone Replacement Treatments
If your symptoms call for bioidentical testosterone replacement therapy, there are different ways the treatment can be provided. This includes topical testosterone that is applied daily, intramuscular testosterone injections (typically given weekly), and testosterone pellet insertion (administered every 4-6 months). Our goal is to find the approach that works best for you and delivers exceptional results.
