The aging process causes a decrease in hormone production for men and women. This decrease causes debilitating symptoms. Hormone replacement is the right solution for many residents living in Pearland, TX or its surrounding areas. Dr. Matthew St. Laurent is a board-certified surgeon who has successfully treated patients using hormone replacement at Northwest EndoSurgical.
What is Hormone Replacement?
Your body contains hormones that have different functions. In the absence of these hormones, your body is not able to perform at its optimal level. Hormone replacement uses bio-identical hormones to replace the ones that are missing. These hormones function similarly to your body’s natural hormones. As a result of replacing the hormones, you will feel more vibrant.
Benefits of Hormone Replacement
Men and women can benefit from hormone replacement. Many patients have reported that they feel just as good as they did prior to the decrease in the production of hormones.
Hormone replacement has many benefits. You will be able to sleep better at night. Your mood and outlook on life will improve. Your bones will become stronger. Your libido will improve.
How is Hormone Replacement Performed?
Many patients are pleasantly surprised at the ease of the process. In fact, it only takes a few minutes to complete hormone replacement.
Since hormone replacement requires an incision, you will receive a local anesthetic to numb the area. Dr. St. Laurent will make a small incision into your lateral buttocks. The pellet-sized bio-identical hormone will be inserted into the incision. A small bandage will be placed on the incision to cover the area.
The pellet will slowly release estrogen or testosterone into your body over a period of three to six months. After the hormones have been released, the pellet will dissolve on its own. At this time, you will return to our offices for another hormone replacement procedure. The best part is there is no recovery period after the procedure.
