Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT): Pro-Pell at GBR Plastic Surgery is an effective, well-tolerated method for aiding hormonal imbalance in men.

The most natural way to deliver bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to the body, these pellets provide a consistent release of hormone levels over an extended period of time, typically 3-6 months.


Identical in structure to the natural hormones produced by the body, hormone pellet therapy has been used with great success since 1938 and has been found to be superior to most hormone delivery methods. The goal of testosterone replacement in men, is to bring the levels back into a normal range while managing the symptoms of low testosterone (low-t) levels.

Facts about pellets:

  • Hormones delivered by pellets bypass the liver, do not affect clotting factors, nor increase the risk of thrombosis
  • Testosterone pellets do not adversely affect blood pressure, lipids, glucose, or liver functioning
  • Unlike testosterone gel, pellets inserted under the skin do not carry the risk of skin-to-skin transfer
  • Implants consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones, avoiding the fluctuations of hormones seen with some other methods of delivery
  • Pellets allow for an efficient & effective procedure (10-15 minutes)
  • Appointments are only needed every 3-4 months (3-4x per year)

Why It’s Important For Men

Getting older can be challenging. Andropause, or “male menopause,” is the natural, gradual decline in testosterone levels in middle-aged men. These lower levels of testosterone play a critical role in the quality and quantity of life in males. Low testosterone levels have been associated with increased blood pressure, cholesterol abnormalities, and impaired cardiac function.

Studies indicate that a man’s testosterone levels decline by approximately 1% annually after age 30.

How Low is Too Low?

Measured through blood tests, most doctors agree that a “normal” testosterone reading falls anywhere between 300 to 1,000 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). It is estimated that 40% of men between the ages of 54 and 64 have levels below the lower limit of normal.

These declining testosterone levels have numerous signs and symptoms and may include, among others:

  • Low sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Reduced lean muscle mass
  • Fatigue
  • Disturbed or trouble sleeping
  • Mood swings
  • Depression and MORE.

*** There are many other possible reasons for these symptoms, such as; certain medication usage, some congenital conditions (medical conditions you are born with), loss of or harm to the testicles, diabetes, and obesity (being overweight). See your doctor if you have any of these symptoms.

Main Benefits for Men

After pellets are inserted, patients may notice that they have more energy, sleep better, and feel happier. Muscle mass and bone density can increase and fatty tissue decrease. Patients may notice increased strength, coordination, and physical performance. They may see an improvement in skin tone and hair texture. Concentration and memory may improve, as will overall physical and sexual health.
