BioTe Hormone Replacement Pellet Process
Before starting hormone replacement therapy, Dr. Ali will conduct a comprehensive blood panel, to determine the patient’s unique and specific hormone deficiencies. Every patient is different, so a treatment plan will be custom designed to address your specific cause and degree of hormone imbalance.
After a local anesthetic is applied, the tiny hormone replacement pellet is inserted around the upper buttocks area through a tiny incision. Because the pellet is about the size of a rice grain, no stitches are required. There is also no downtime after the treatment. However some small precautions – such as not swimming, soaking, or exercising for a few days – must be followed.
The tiny pellet continuously and consistently time-releases the hormones into the body – keeping hormones at constant optimal levels. Most patients will notice improvement as soon as two or three weeks after insertion of the pellet. Over time the BioTe hormone replacement pellet will dissolve and be absorbed by the body, so the pellets do not need to be removed.
Over the course of your hormone treatments, Dr. Ali will continue to monitor your hormone levels, so he can adjust and customize your treatment plan accordingly.
