    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, longer.*
    WHAT IS THE GOAL OF HORMONE OPTIMIZATION THERAPY?
    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.
    WHAT IS BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT PELLET THERAPY?

    hormone replacement. It 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 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 CAN A PATIENT GET STARTED WITH BHRT?
    Contact Elite Plastic Surgery. Based on a comprehensive consultation and extensive lab work, providers will determine 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 A PATIENT EXPECT FROM BHRT?
    As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Some patients report some relief in as soon as four weeks, but full hormone optimization may take up to six months. Many report feeling more benefits after the second insertion. The Biote Method of hormone optimization therapy will be customized to balance each patient’s hormones and fit their specific needs.

    THE PELLET THERAPY PROCESS

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.
