Also known as HRT Hormonal replacement therapy in men and women: Regain your youth. Live longer, happier, longer, leaner and stronger. Look younger.

What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

HRT, or hormone replacement therapy in Chicago is for both men and women. It’s designed to counteract the effects of hormonal imbalances that occur with aging.

At Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute, we like to call it bioidentical hormonal optimization, rather than replacement therapy. Hormonal optimization is the science of diagnosing and treating hormonal imbalances. We accomplish this through a series of laboratory tests, which we then use to formulate a custom treatment plan.

If you’ve noticed a decline in your energy levels, mood, or simply don’t feel as good as you used to, you may benefit from our HRT services.

Why HRT Is Beneficial

Hormones are responsible for many bodily functions and processes. When the body can no longer properly regulate them, it can result in a number of unpleasant side effects.

As we age, hormone production decreases and we can start to feel sluggish and unlike ourselves. People may experience mood swings, extreme fatigue, thinning hair, digestive problems, and decreased sex drive. Common signs of aging like sagging skin and wrinkles may also seem to pop up overnight.

If you’re ready to regain your health and confidence, HRT may be for you. Contact us at Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute today to schedule a consultation.

What is BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy)?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, is a form of hormone optimization. At Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute, we offer BHRT to individuals who are struggling with hormonal imbalance and wish to feel like themselves again.

What makes BHRT stand out from other treatments is that the hormones are chemically similar to naturally produced hormones in your body. This promotes a harmonious integration into your system.

Whether you’re experiencing the symptoms of menopause, andropause, or other hormone-related conditions, BHRT provides a tailored approach to rejuvenate your health and enhance your quality of life.

At What Age Do Hormones Decline?

Hormones may decline anytime after the ages of 30-35. They most commonly start to decline around menopause in women and after the age of 35 in men. Genetic factors also influence hormonal decline.

What Hormones Decline With Age?

Almost all hormones decline with age. This subsequently lowers the efficiency of many bodily functions. It can affect your appearance, causing wrinkles, dull complexion, and loss of skin elasticity. Hormonal changes can also affect muscle tone, energy levels, mood, sex drive, digestive system function, and other things that impact your wellbeing.

Signs of Hormone Imbalance

Signs of hormonal imbalance as we age can range from decreased libido to mood changes and hair loss. There are an endless number of ways in which hormones help our bodies function. Below is a list of the many common signs of hormone imbalance in both men and women.

  • Weight gain (especially around the abdomen, waist, and hips)
  • Slower metabolism
  • Decline in libido/sex drive
  • Decline in quality of orgasm
  • Weaker eyesight
  • Decline in hearing ability
  • Fatigue and low energy levels
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Insomnia or restless sleep
  • Brain fog
  • Memory issues
  • Fibromyalgia and body aches
  • Recurrent yeast infections
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Vaginal odor
  • Vaginal itching
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Frequent urination
  • High cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Abdominal bloating and gas
  • Indigestion
  • Constipation
  • Hair thinning and hair loss
  • Poor circulation
  • Increased body hair

  • Wrinkles on the face and around the eyes
  • Loss of muscle tone

The above list is not exhaustive, and many people experience different symptoms. Any of these can also be an indication of an underlying health issue. It’s important to talk to your doctor before considering HRT.

Signs of Andropause in Men

Early signs of male hormonal decline (andropause) are usually a result of testosterone decline and testosterone resistance.

The most common signs of andropause include many listed above, as well as the following:

  • Muscle volume loss evident in decline of arm circumference
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Fatigue
  • Restless sleep and restless leg syndrome
  • Irritability and panic attacks
  • Depression
  • Hair thinning and hair loss
  • Weight gain

What is Adrenal Insufficiency?

Your adrenal glands are responsible for creating several hormones critical to survival. The condition known as “adrenal insufficiency” occurs when these glands don’t produce sufficient amounts of these hormones.

If you have adrenal insufficiency, you may experience the following:

  • Wake up feeling tired
  • Disrupted sleep with strange dreams
  • Chronic fatigue (individuals often resort to coffee or other stimulants to stay awake during the day)
  • Body aches
  • Mood swings
  • Abdominal pain
  • Anxiety, depression, and/or panic attacks
  • Low blood pressure
  • Lightheadedness
  • Loss of body hair
  • Skin discoloration (hyperpigmentation)
  • Weight loss (without cause)
  • Loss of appetite
  • Cravings for caffeine, sweets, and sour or salty foods
  • Cold temperature intolerance
  • Increased susceptibility to infections

If you receive a diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency, discuss your treatment options with your physician. It’s crucial that you do not undergo hormone replacement therapy or other treatments for adrenal insufficiency, or other health conditions, before getting approval from your doctor.

Why Choose Hormone Optimization?

BHRT helps optimize and restore hormonal balance through bioidentical natural hormone supplementation. The goal of BHRT is to maintain bodily functions and slow down the aging process and its associated degenerative changes.

Many people experience these changes rapidly due to poor diet, a sedentary lifestyle, alcohol consumption, smoking, and unavoidable environmental toxins.

The Process

Hormone replacement therapy in Chicago, IL, starts with a consultation. During your consultation, our cosmetic professionals at Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute will get a detailed medical history before gathering samples for laboratory tests. These samples typically include blood, urine, and saliva.

From there, we will cultivate your personalized treatment plan. First, we’ll discuss your test results and what they mean. Part of your treatment might include taking vitamins or supplements.

We may also recommend various lifestyle changes, such as changing your diet and following an exercise regimen.

Then, we’ll discuss your hormone levels. Hormonal optimization using bioidentical compounded hormones in the form of creams, pellets, injections, and/or pills will be at the core of your treatment plan.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Men and women experiencing symptoms associated with hormone imbalance or decline due to aging, such as menopause in women or andropause in men, are good candidates for HRT. Women going through perimenopause and men experiencing a drop in testosterone may also find relief through HRT. Additionally, individuals with specific health conditions that cause hormonal deficiencies, such as thyroid disorders or adrenal insufficiency, may also benefit.

It’s important for potential candidates to undergo a thorough medical evaluation with their doctor before opting for HRT. This should include a discussion of their medical history, symptoms, and a detailed risk assessment. HRT may not be suitable for everyone, particularly those with a history of certain cancers, blood clots, liver disease, or uncontrolled high blood pressure.

The following concerns are also good reasons to consider hormone replacement in Chicago.

  • Risk of osteoporosis and fractures
  • Risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease
  • Fibromyalgia and body aches
  • Risk of uterine and endometrial cancer
  • Risk of breast cancer
  • High blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Depression
  • Recurrent urine and bladder infections

We Use the Following Types of Hormones:

  • DHEA
