Combat the effects of low testosterone and reclaim the man you used to be!
“I felt like I turned into a grumpy old man overnight,” exclaims Dave, a 44-year-old Male Testosterone Optimization patient of Wayzata Cosmetic Surgery & Spa. “I was tired all of the time, getting a beer belly, and my low sex drive was starting to affect my marriage,” he continues. “My work performance was suffering and I just felt like my life was spiraling out of control,” he finishes, shaking his hands.
Dave’s concerns are not uncommon. Millions of men seek treatment every year to discuss testosterone optimization with their physicians. Although commonly associated with libido, Testosterone is a crucial hormone for men’s overall health and can dramatically impact all areas of a man’s life.
Gradual changes in testosterone levels can lead to several symptoms:
• Low Libido
• Difficulty Maintaining Erections
• Weight Gain
• Reduced Muscle Mass
• Increased Abdominal Fat
• Irritability & Fatigue
• Exercise Intolerance
• Memory loss
• Trouble sleeping
• Reduced productivity
“The symptoms of female menopause are commonly known in society today, but few men openly discuss the symptoms they feel due to low testosterone,” explains Dr. Mark Erhard of Wayzata Cosmetic Surgery & Spa. He continues, “Men really do go through their own hormonal decline phase, like women, it’s just not discussed as openly. Once men realize how common this is, and how easy it is take action and feel results, it’s a no brainer in my practice!”
Male Testosterone Optimization is the process of supplementing testosterone to obtain ideal youthful levels, and restore vitality and balance. In a practice, such as Wayzata Cosmetic Surgery & Spa, this is done through Pellet Therapy. This process involves a tiny testosterone pellet being implanted into the buttocks region to slowly and steadily release a heightened level of testosterone into the blood stream.
“After a simple blood test and an overview of a man’s symptoms, we can identify exactly what levels of testosterone should be administered,” states Dr. Mark. “Pellet therapy allows for a customized, gradual, and even release of testosterone over a 3-5 month period. This is unlike testosterone shots or creams which need to be applied daily, or administered weekly, and can cause a spike of the hormone and impact mood,” he continues. “This treatment can be absolutely transformational for men and make them feel like themselves again. In fact, I get lots of notes from wives thanking me for giving them their husbands back,” Dr. Mark concludes as he winks.
