Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT)

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT)

At SCULPT, we are pleased to offer Bioidentical Hormone Therapy, or BHRT. Our certified providers will optimize your hormone levels to improve your energy and balance your mood. BHRT and age-management medicine also helps with weight loss and minimize symptoms of menopause and aging. You and your hormone levels are managed closely, to ensure safe treatment.

What is bioidentical hormone therapy?

Bioidentical hormones are medications that contain hormones that are an exact chemical match to those made naturally within your body. They can be controlled using several methods of treatment:

  • Pellets
  • Topical Creams
  • Oral Medication

SCULPT provides all three options. Our certified providers, overseen by our board certified physician, will recommend which treatment is best and safest for you.

Who provides treatments at SCULPT?

We have three providers at SCULPT who will help manage your BHRT treatments. Terra Vejraska, APRN, is our nurse practitioner who is certified in pellet treatments. Chrissy Svoboda, PA-C is our physician assistant who manages hormones through creams and oral medication. All of our hormone therapy is overseen by Dr. Gerard J. Stanley, Jr., cosmetic surgeon and board-certified family physician. All of our providers are certified, trained, and have extensive experience in hormone management.

What can I expect from my BHRT experience at SCULPT?

First, you will set up an office visit with one of our providers. Our medical assistants will draw your blood, which will be sent off to the lab for a hormone panel, which will show any hormone imbalances you are experiencing. Results take a few days to come back. Our providers will then recommend how to optimize those hormones to make you feel your best. Most patients have office visits about every 8 weeks.

What are symptoms of hormone imbalance?

Hormone imbalance affects more than 50 million women in the United States. There are many symptoms of hormone imbalance, including:

  • Hot flashes/ Night sweats
  • Fatigue
  • Moodiness/ Mood swings
  • Weight Gain
  • Insomnia
  • Low Libido
  • Memory Loss
  • Hormone imbalance may also lead to blood clots and heart disease

With successful BHRT treatment, you can greatly reduce and even eliminate the above symptoms.

What results can I expect to see?

With successful BHRT treatment, you will notice an extreme improvement in your symptoms, once your hormones are balanced. Night sweats and hot flashes will subside, you will sleep better, and your mood swings will be reduced. Many women also experience weight loss and increased energy.

Is BHRT covered by insurance at SCULPT?

Your office visits with our provider are covered by insurance. However, your medicine is not. Pellet therapy is $325/ visit. Oral and topical medications vary based on treatment and can be purchased at SCULPT.
