What-is-Bioidentical-Hormone-Replacement_.jpg

Aging, menopause, diseases, and stress can have women not feeling their best. This can interfere with having a high quality of life, self-esteem, and fertility. Do you find yourself dealing with any of the following symptoms?

  • Hot flashes
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Decreased energy
  • Memory Lapses
  • Night Sweats
  • Brain fog
  • Decreased sex drive

Believe it or not, you may be dealing with hormonal imbalances. Our walk-in clinic in San Francisco has treatments called bioidentical hormone replacement therapy that can help you with all of the symptoms listed above.

Read more below to learn what BHRT is and how it can help you.

What are Bioidentical Hormones?What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

BHRT is the use of hormones to solve issues such as the ones listed above which are caused by a decline in hormone production or an imbalance of hormones. Even though BHR is man-made, they are identical to the hormones found in a woman’s body and the body cannot tell the difference. The hormones are made from an extract from soy and yams and added chemicals that make estrogen and progesterone. Because these hormones come from a natural source such as plants and not synthesized in a lab, bioidentical hormones are called natural hormones. Estrogen and progesterone production in a woman’s body contributes to fertility and youthfulness. An imbalance or lack of these hormones can lead to fatigue, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and bone thinning. BHR can combat these symptoms by replacing or balancing out these hormones. Therapy can come in a variety of forms such as creams, lotions, injections, gels, or tablets.

Benefits of BHRT?

There are many benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy. In addition to helping you with the symptoms listed above, they also help to prevent diseases as a result of aging and hormone decreases such as osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s.

Here’s a more in-depth review of the benefits of BHRT.

Improves energy – A decrease in hormones such as testosterone and progesterone may cause a lack of energy, brain fog, and loss of sleep quality. Bioidentical hormone therapy for testosterone and progesterone can help you achieve mental clarity, motivation, and better sleep.

Helps Bone Health – Hormones such as estrogen and progesterone have been found to prevent bone loss in women so a replacement of these hormones may help prevent bone thinning. Preventing bone thinning can, in turn, prevent problems such as hip fractures and osteoporosis.

Can Decrease Uncomfortable Symptoms Such as Hot Flashes – Some of the most common symptoms associated with hormone decreases in menopause are hot flashes and night sweats. There have been studies that show that oral uses of BHRT are highly effective at decreasing hot flashes and nightly sweats.

Look Younger – Since BHRT replaces the hormones that make you feel and look more youthful, you can get back some of your youthful looks with this type of therapy. You might see fewer signs of aging skin and wrinkles with hormone therapy.

Decrease Your Chances of Getting Age-Related Diseases – In addition to looking and feeling younger, BHRT can also decrease your chances of getting some serious diseases related to aging such as Alzheimer’s disease, colon cancer, Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis, periodontal disease as well as decrease your chances of heart attacks and strokes.

Who Can Benefit from BHRT?

Any woman who is subjected to birth control pills, pesticides, environmental pollutants, plastic, poor diet, and health and skin care products can more than likely benefit from BHRT .

Here’s a quick run-down of how everyday products just might be affecting your hormone production:

Birth Control Pills – Believe it or not certain cancers such as thyroid issues, heart disease, bone, and metabolic disorders have been linked to birth control pills. This is because the hormones released by the birth control pills to stop you from ovulating interfere with your own naturally occurring hormones.

Women’s Hair & Skincare Products – Many women’s hair and skincare products such as products with fragrances contain Phthalates. Phthalates are chemicals that imitate hormones and have been linked to early puberty in children. In addition to early puberty in children, it has also been linked to early menopause in women.

Environmental Pollutants – Environmental pollutants are also a contributor to hormonal imbalances in women. Some pollutants are linked to Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, women’s vision, and can cause strokes and deficiencies in vitamin A.

Plastics – Plastic products that contain BPA (bisphenol) has been linked to breast cancer. Common plastic products that contain BPA include children’s toys, reusable bottles, and containers.

Poor Diet –  A poor diet can cause a multitude of symptoms such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, anxiety, obesity. Consuming large quantities of fatty and sugary foods can throw your hormonal balance out of whack causing you to experience many of the symptoms listed above.

The-Benefits-of-Breast-Augmentation-1200x1200.jpg

Receiving a breast augmentation procedure a very courageous step towards a new look. Breast augmentation is also known as breast implants or augmentation mammoplasty. A consultation with a physician, such as those who specialize in breast augmentation at EZCare Clinic, will provide you with all the information you need for your breast augmentation procedure. However, there are a few steps you can take prior to meeting with a physician to familiarize yourself with the procedure and to know whether breast augmentation is right for you. 

According to a study published by the US National Library of Medicine National Institute of Health, “breast augmentation is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgical operation” (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov, 2008). For example, people may seek breast augmentation:  

  • To correct asymmetrical breasts. 
  • When they want to reconstruct their body after a mastectomy for breast cancer. 
  • To reshape their breasts after weight loss, aging, or pregnancy. 
  • For cosmetic reasons and self-confidence.  

Breast Augmentation can be life-changing. To schedule a consultation today, call EZCare Clinic in today. 

Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation Consultation

During a consultation with your doctor, the best incision type and location will be identified for you. Generally, there are four types of incisions for breast augmentation. 

  1. Inframammary: An incision under the breast just above the crease, allowing for larger implants to be inserted. 
  2. Transaxillary: An incision made in the armpit. The procedure requires more precision and the use of a camera for the surgeon to have exact placement, but there is no scar left on the breast itself. 
  3. Periareolar: An incision made on the lower edge of the areola (the dark area that surrounds the nipple). This incision is common when a breast lift is being done at the same time. 
  4. Transumbilical: An incision made just above the navel. This allows for only one scar to be made, and no scar left on the breast. 

Are you ready to get a change in cup size? Well, now is your chance! Call EZ Care Clinic to schedule a consultation today. 

Breast Augmentation History

Now that you know the incision types, it is also helpful to know the types of implants available. In the 1960s, Surgeons Frank Gerow and Thomas Cronin were the first to pioneer the silicone breast implant (BBC, 2012).  

After testing their idea on dogs, they performed the surgery on a volunteer Timmie Jean Lindsey, who was astonished by the results. A year later, in 1963, Gerow and Cronin exposed their methods at the International Society of Plastic Surgeons in Washington. Silicon proved much more useful and safer than what was being done prior, such as the insertion of sponges under the breast that eventually became hard as rocks. 

What Types of Breast Implants are Available? 

The types of breast implants available have come a long way since the 1960s, and there are more choices now than ever before. The cost, the shape, and the feel of the breasts you are seeking will determine the choice you make with your physician.  

Breast Augmentation choices include: 

  • Silicone Gel-Filled Implants – These implants are filled with a soft silicone gel and are pre-filled to a variety of sizes and shapes. 
  • Cohesive Gel Silicone Gel-Filled Breast Implants – These implants are known as the “gummy bear” implants as their molecularly structured silicone gel is much more firm than normal silicone implants. This makes them very firm and able to hold their shape longer than normal silicone. 
  • Saline-Filled Implants – These implants are filled with sterile salt water. They can be filled during surgery to be modified to the correct shape and size. 
  • Structured Saline-Filled Breast Implants – These are also filled with sterile salt water, but have a structure inside that makes them feel like a silicone gel implant. 
  • Autologous Fat Transfer – While not necessarily an implant, it is still a form of breast augmentation. This process involves liposuction from another part of the body, and the fat cells transferred and injected into the breasts. 

Effects of Breast Augmentation Surgery

After determining whether breast implants are right for you, it is helpful to know about the procedure you will be going through. An article published on the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery draws attention to the fear of having ugly scars after a breast augmentation procedure. “Qualified cosmetic surgeons will use a surgical technique that places breast augmentation incisions so the resulting scars are easily hidden and inconspicuous, even to the patient” (americanboardcosmeticsurgery.org, 2017).  

Will My New Breasts Hurt?

After the surgery, there are steps you can take to make the transition most comfortable for you. The most pain is experienced 48 hours after the procedure. Implants stretch the breast muscle, and it is natural to feel pain and soreness in the chest area. Painkillers like acetaminophen can help alleviate this pain.  

For the next few weeks, you should minimize any physical activity. Allow the scars to heal, which means avoiding unnecessary lifting and full-range movements that can potentially reopen the incisions. After about a month, your breasts should be free of soreness, but everyone recovers at differently, so be sure to follow the recommended care plan as indicated by your doctor. 

Are There Any Risks To Breast Augmentation?

Whatever the reason for seeking breast augmentation, it is important to know all of the risks involved with the operation. While it is notable that significant complications due to augmentation are infrequent, it is still a surgical operation the patient is undergoing, and it carries with it all the risks of one.  

Without proper care, there is the possibility of infection from the incision, a loss of sensation in the breast and nipples, and allergic reactions from the type of implant used. Additionally, the implants themselves need to be monitored, which means that you will need to make frequent visits to EZCare Clinic for mammograms and checkups. It is advised to have an MRI scan three years after receiving the implants and every two years after to check for silent ruptures. 

Overall, the risks are nowhere near the potential benefits of receiving breast augmentation. Whether it is for cosmetic reasons or recovering from a life-threatening disease like breast cancer, breast augmentation is an option for anyone looking to improve their self-image. The most important part of it all is staying informed, and consulting with a qualified physician such as those at EZCare Clinic in San Francisco.
