Look As Young As You Feel and Feel As Young As You Look

BHRT - ShumwayShumway Cosmetic Surgery, run by Dr. Robert A. Shumway, MD., F.A.C.S. and his team offer services that may rival the mythology of magical waters to bring back the taut beautiful skin and lush vibrancy of our youth. Dr. Shumway specializes in cosmetic surgery and skin rejuvenation and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). He believes that you should not only “Look as young as you feel, but feel as young as you look.”

Hormonal imbalance begins for men and women at different stages of lift. Dr. Shumway works on helping clients be proactive about preventing the symptoms and illnesses that arise due to the loss of varius hormones in the body. Symptoms like fatigue, low libido, sexual endurance, weight-gain in the mid-section, and poor sleep are some of the underlying issues. Many of us assume these are the telltale signs of aging, and it cannot be undone, but that does not mean we just have to lie there and take it. Maintaining optimal levels of the correct hormones promotes an improved lifestyle, and perhaps prevents further illnesses. Bioidentical hormones are identical in molecular structure to the hormones that are naturally made in the body; they are derived from a variety of plants, including yams and soybeans.

Dr. Shumway offers a complimentary consultation to discuss the benefits of BHRT and determine if hormone therapy is right for you. He orders a blood test to identify what hormones you may be deficient in, and then writes prescriptions for very specific hormonal compounds. Each individual has unique needs and so the prescriptions are tailored to provide optimal balance. Dr. Shumway schedules routine follow up appointments and labs to properly evaluate and, if needed, adjust the prescriptions. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a process, but the youthful results can be felt and seen within a few weeks. Dr. Shumway advocates BHRT to all of his cosmetic surgery patients. He understands that looking young is indeed wonderful, but feeling young and full of vitality is amazing!
