Q&A: Bioidentical HRT - Questions & Answers or FAQ's

oprah_winfreyBioidentical HRT

What is Bioidentical HRT?

Bioidentical HTR is an innovative natural compound that mimics the molecular and chemical structure of hormones that are produced naturally in the body. There have been many studies on these natural hormone replacement therapies and they are deemed as entirely safe without the side effects that can be experienced with synthetic hormone replacement therapies. Bioidentical hormones are usually derived from plant sources and so contain no man-made ingredients. Many men and women turn to these therapies and have had much success in treating hormone imbalance.

Oprah Winfrey has been a proponent of bioidentical HRT saying; "After one day on bioidentical estrogen, I felt the veil lift".

When should bioidentical HRT be considered?

Hormone imbalance can occur at any time in both men and women. As we age, our hormone levels can start to decline causing several symptoms that need treatment. Hot flushes, night sweats, loss of libido, fatigue, and weight gain are all unpleasant symptoms of hormone imbalance. Men may experience other ailments such as low energy, a slower metabolism resulting in weight gain, and loss of muscle mass. Your practitioner can prescribe a course of bioidentical hormones that will naturally replace the hormones lost and help you to get your energy and life back.

Bioidentical hormones have actually been used for many decades. Many studies have been carried out that prove that bioidentical estrogen and testosterone are not only safe, but have a positive impact on the human body and can help to protect against some cancers. If you experiencing any of the symptoms listed above you should seek help as soon as possible. A good time to start hormone replacement therapy is between 35 and 40 to get the full benefits.

Q&A: Mini-Facelift Procedure - Questions & Answers or FAQ's

Mini-Facelift Procedure

model_faceQ. Who is the mini-facelift suitable for?

A. The mini-facelift is suitable for men and women who are just starting to notice the first signs of ageing. Because of the short recuperation times, many patients choose this type of surgery over intensive facial surgery. Patients are usually in their 30s and 40s and have specific areas that they would like to enhance or detract attention from. Sagging eyelids, eye bags, dropping cheeks, jowls and neck areas are all common areas that are addressed. The mini-facelift is quick and effective and most patients can recover completely in a matter of days hence why this procedure is sometimes referred to as the “weekend facelift”.

Q. How does a mini-facelift differ from a full facelift?

A. A full facelift focuses on the entire face, lifting sagging skin and reducing wrinkles in all areas. The mini-facelift by contrast focuses on targeted areas and these will be discussed with you prior to the surgery taking place. A mini-facelift cannot improve entire areas such as the forehead whereas this would normally be achieved with traditional surgery. Your surgeon will go over the entire procedure and the types of facelifts with you so that you are happy with what is going to happen and know what to expect. Of course, recuperation times are also much quicker with the mini-facelift.
