Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Ansley Hilton, MD, and Joe Robinson, MD, offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy at Southeast Sculpting + Rejuvenation in Fort Mill, South Carolina, to reduce your symptoms and restore a better quality of life.

BHRT FAQ'S

  • While conventional hormone therapy uses synthetic hormones to replenish depleted hormone stores, advances in biomedicine have identified bioidentical hormones as a more effective option with fewer potential risks.

    Bioidentical hormones are replicas of the hormones your body produces naturally. It’s a highly customized treatment that relieves or eliminates symptoms of hormonal imbalances and reduces your risk of chronic age-related diseases by enhancing your body function and overall health.

  • Your hormones control almost everything in your body, from your mood to your metabolism and your sex drive. While there are plenty of conditions that disrupt your hormonal balance, the most common hormonal issues stem from aging. For example, as women approach and reach menopause, they may experience a range of disruptive symptoms such as:

    • Vaginal atrophy
    • Painful intercourse
    • Libido loss
    • Weight gain
    • Disrupted sleep
    • Hot flashes and night sweats
    • Anxiety and depression

    Menopause may be better known, but men also suffer from age-related hormonal depletion. Andropause, as it is called, typically results in muscle mass loss, weight gain, mood disruptions, and a decreased sex drive.

  • The doctors at Southeast Sculpting + Rejuvenation begin with a detailed consultation and extensive blood testing to measure your hormone levels as well as test for other conditions that could contribute to your symptoms. The results of these blood tests guide them in determining your specific needs and the medications needed to restore them to proper levels.

    Then, the doctors work with a compounding pharmacy that specializes in custom-making bioidentical hormones to match your specific needs. The hormones are usually provided in pellet form but may be supplemented by oral medication, cream, or gel as well.

    Your doctor injects an appropriate number and type of pellets — which are about the size of a grain of rice — under the skin of your upper buttock or abdomen. The pellet slowly releases the bioidentical hormones to relieve your symptoms.

    Throughout your treatment, you have frequent follow-up appointments. Your doctor monitors your symptoms and hormone levels to ensure your treatment is effective. They can adjust your treatment as necessary. Your body should respond to bioidentical hormone therapy within three months.

  • Bioidentical hormone therapy is personalized and formulated to meet your needs. They’re more effective and potentially safer than other hormone therapy options.

    If you don’t feel like yourself or have recognizable symptoms of a hormone imbalance, call Southeast Sculpting + Rejuvenation or make an appointment online today.
