Did you know that men begin to lose between 3% and 10% of their testosterone every year starting at age 30? That is a pretty scary statistic given that low testosterone levels can be responsible for chronic fatigue, decreased mental sharpness, increased fat, and low libido. Male testosterone pellet implants are a safe way to restore your hormone balance so that you look and feel more energized, vital and youthful. Hormone therapy is incredibly important, and it works.
As a board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Whitfield believes in taking a comprehensive approach with his patients. When you come in for a consultation, he will take a full medical history and perform a physical exam. In men where he’s concerned that the underlying issue may be low testosterone, he will request a blood test. This blood draw will help him determine whether or not your tail testosterone or your free testosterone level is low.
Armed with this information, Dr. Whitfield will prescribe the right dosage of male testosterone for your body.
Male testosterone pellet implants are bio-identical hormone therapy for men. Bio-identical hormones are often referred to as “natural” hormones. Though some might argue that the only natural hormones are the ones actually made by your body, the advantage of a bio-identical hormone is that its molecular structure is identical to the hormones made by your body.
Taking hormones everyday can be annoying to remember and expensive. With the male testosterone pellet implant procedure, a pellet is implanted that creates a sustained release of testosterone. One that is right for your individual needs. The pellet lasts about 4-6 months before it needs to be replaced.
In addition to increasing your testosterone level, it is possible that you may also need to reduce your estrogen level with an estrogen blocking pellet. Dr. Whitfield’s goal with any male testosterone pellet implant procedure is to achieve the perfect hormone cocktail for your body and your needs.
At our core, our bodies are controlled by our hormones. They affect nearly every human function. When they get out of balance, it can make you feel horrible, look horrible and even threaten your health. Low levels of testosterone are associated with:
For Dr. Whitfield, helping his male patients to feel more comfortable in their skin is not just about performing a body contouring procedure or improving the eyelids with a blepharoplasty.
