Hormone Optimization with Biote

The primary goal of Biote is to help balance hormones through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy using pellets. Hormone balance is crucial to leading a healthier and more fulfilling life. That’s why the mission of Biote is to help people live better…for longer. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may offer relief for many common and debilitating symptoms that medical providers often overlook. Some of these symptoms include:

  • Exhaustion
  • Stress
  • Foggy thinking
  • Weight gain
  • Sleep disturbances
  • And so much more

Often, people with symptoms like these are suffering from hormonal imbalance. These ailments may be managed by getting to the root cause of these complex conditions and returning the patient to a state of hormonal balance. BHRT may be a simple method for correcting these complex issues through hormone optimization.

Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy

When receiving HRT in Phoenix, allows a patient’s body to absorb the right level of hormones at the right time using a delivery method the body can process efficiently. Pellets are small capsules (about the size of a grain of rice) that contain bioidentical hormones like testosterone or estrogen. A bioidentical hormone is the exact molecular structure of hormones the body produces naturally.

They are inserted under the skin, where hormones enter the bloodstream as they dissolve over several months. Our studies show that patients may see the effects of hormone optimization up to four weeks after a pellet insertion. Everyone is unique, and some people may feel the effects immediately, while others may take up to two or more pellet insertions before they feel the full effects.

Hormones delivered by pellet therapy bypass the liver, do not affect clotting factors, do not increase the risk of thrombosis, and avoid the fluctuations of hormone levels some patients may experience. Biote bioidentical hormone pellets are made from soy or the yam plant to create estradiol and/or testosterone molecules, unlike synthetic hormones, which are made from animal parts or urine and have a different molecular structure than what the body produces.

How Do I Get Started?

Contact Elite Plastic Surgery. Based on a comprehensive consultation and extensive lab work, our providers will determine your candidacy for the Biote Method. Patients will schedule a quick follow-up appointment to review their results and, when appropriate, for pellet therapy insertion.

What Can I Expect?

As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Some patients report relief in as little as four weeks, but full hormone optimization may take up to six months. Many report feeling more benefits after the second insertion.

Testosterone Pellet Therapy

Bioidentical testosterone replacement pellets may help the body return to optimal testosterone levels. Testosterone replacement aims to relieve a wide variety of symptoms. Learn more about testosterone replacement therapy using pellets by contacting Elite Plastic Surgery.

During an in-office visit, which only takes a few minutes, the insertion site is numbed, and a small incision is made in the upper buttocks. Then, the testosterone hormone pellet is inserted, and a small bandage is placed over the insertion site.

It can take up to six months after the first insertion for a state of testosterone balance to be achieved, and it may take a second pelleting to fully feel the effects. Contact Elite Plastic Surgery today to get started with hormone pellet therapy.

BHRT with Estrogen

Mood swings, hot flashes, or irregular or absent periods are indications that estrogen levels have dropped in a woman. Elite Plastic Surgery offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) in Phoenix using pellets that may relieve these symptoms. Many patients report that the Biote Method of estrogen pellet therapy has helped them with the effects of menopause.

We at Elite Plastic Surgery can determine the ideal estrogen pellet plan for a patient based on a consultation and extensive lab work. Then, the hormone pellet is inserted through a small incision in the upper buttocks and is covered with a small bandage. Once inserted, the bioidentical pellets will be dissolved and absorbed by the body.

Estrogen Pellet Therapy

Bioidentical estrogen pellets use hormones that are molecularly similar to those found within the human body. Bioidentical estrogen pellets may help reduce unwelcome side effects. Many patients have reported that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can be used to address hot flashes, low mood, and menstrual migraines.

Hormone levels in women drop most dramatically during perimenopause (immediately before menopause) and during menopause. If a woman is going through menopause, contacting Elite Plastic Surgery and talking about estrogen pellet therapy may be the next best step to help relieve symptoms. Bioidentical estrogen hormone pellets may be used to help address symptoms and potentially avoid negative side effects.
