Hormone pellet implantation at The MIAMI Institute is an in-office procedure that takes about 20 minutes but can have an immediate and lasting effect on an individual’s physical and emotional well being. The pellets themselves are slightly larger than a grain of rice yet smaller than a Tic Tac and are made with bio-identical estrogen or testosterone. The pellet or pellets are placed under the skin, of the upper buttocks and deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones for 3-5 months in women and 4-6 months in men. Of course, base levels will be tested before the procedure and after and regular monitoring will keep tabs on how your body is absorbing the hormones. Pellets do not need to be removed, they dissolve on their own.
At The MIAMI Institute we use the FDA-approved 75mg testosterone pellet. You may need more than one pellet. Your preliminary blood panels will dictate which dose is right to help restore hormonal balance in your body. Some patients report a near instant improvement in mood and general energy levels while others say their symptoms were alleviated over the course of a few to several days.
