About Low Testosterone

HRT For Men, Tribeca Med, Miami, FL

Testosterone is the essential male hormone that maintains and develops masculine characteristics. It is natural for a man’s testosterone to decrease over time. Low testosterone levels can impact your mood, libido, and quality of life. (1) These effects may begin at a younger age than you expect. Testosterone levels can start to lower as soon as your early forties, and it can continue declining anywhere from 1-2% every year. (2) A testosterone deficiency can affect virtually all aspects of your life because it is an essential hormone for the body’s overall functioning.

Physical symptoms of low testosterone include:

  • Low libido, erectile dysfunction, and decreased fertility
  • Poor results from diet and exercise
  • A loss of lean muscle mass
  • Increased body fat
  • Difficulty sleeping and persistent fatigue

Cognitive symptoms of low testosterone include:

  • Brain fog or trouble with concentration and decision-making
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Low self-confidence
  • Decreased motivation or work performance

Left untreated, low testosterone can also aggravate certain preexisting health conditions, including:

  • Obesity
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Osteoporosis
  • Coronary Artery Disease

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Fortunately, aging does not have to entail a decline in your well-being. Our hormone replacement therapy with bioidentical hormones can help you attain balance and address the symptoms that you are dealing with. Bioidentical hormones are designed to precisely mimic naturally-occurring hormones. This ensures that the body receives them and reacts in the same way that it would to the natural production of testosterone. Through Dr. Shapiro’s personalized 90-day BHRT treatment plans, you can avoid unwanted weight gain, low libido, and decreased mood and energy. You can redefine aging and feel more like your younger self with our BHRT treatments.

Benefits of BHRT

Hormone replacement therapy can improve your health and happiness long-term. Whether you are seeking BHRT for sexual dysfunction, better results in the gym, or improved mental clarity, treatment can help you target the underlying cause of various symptoms.

Hormone replacement therapy for men can help to: 

  • Improve your libido, sexual health, and intimacy (3)
  • Restore mood and energy levels, resulting in better work performance
  • Improve your memory and mental focus, clearing brain fog
  • Restore your strength and virility, producing better results in the gym (4)
  • Cut body fat and reduce bloating and inflammation

Who is a Candidate for BHRT?


Men over the age of 30 who are experiencing a decrease in energy, libido, mood, or mental focus, as well as weight gain should consider receiving BHRT with Dr. Shapiro. Those at risk for type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity may also be good candidates for an BHRT evaluation. BHRT can work as a preventative measure as well, improving your health as you age before you begin to experience any negative symptoms.

It may not be a good option if you are a smoker or have a heightened risk of blood clots. If you have high cholesterol, liver disease, or gallbladder issues, BHRT might also pose some risks. We can discuss your eligibility for this treatment at your personal consultation.

Personal Consultation

When you come in for your personal consultation, we will tell you everything you need to know about BHRT. We will have you take a symptom questionnaire to better understand your condition. We will also take your blood to get an accurate and comprehensive evaluation of your hormone levels. With our findings, we can devise a personalized treatment program designed specifically for your hormonal makeup. We will also ask for a detailed history of your past surgeries, prescriptions, and over-the-counter medications, to optimize the safety of your treatment. We can give you an accurate cost estimate and schedule your first treatment session at the end of your consultation.

BHRT Procedure

At Tribeca Medaesthetics, we utilize pellet therapy for your hormone replacement treatment. We can have small pellets, no larger than a grain of rice, custom-made based on your particular hormone levels. Dr. Shapiro will begin your procedure by making a small incision on your buttock, where he will insert the pellet. When it is firmly positioned beneath the skin, he will close the incision. The pellet delivers a steady stream of hormones that will eliminate the need for scheduled ingestion or application of medication. This makes the pellet treatment more reliable and easier for the patient. We also offer BHRT through topical cream, injection, and dissolvable lozenge. This will depend on the details of your treatment plan and your preferences.

Recovery & Results

BHRT at Tribeca Medaesthetics does not require significant downtime. You should avoid strenuous activity for two days after your procedure to allow the pellet time to settle into its location in your body. You may experience some redness and swelling at the incision site. These symptoms should resolve themselves within a few days. If you feel discomfort during this time, you can take an over-the-counter medication like Tylenol to help.

How Long Does it Take for BHRT to Work?

Once the testosterone begins to interact with your body, you may feel a difference in your symptoms within days. Each testosterone delivery system has a slightly different rate at which it will take effect. Within one week, you can expect a noticeable change in how you feel, and this will continue as your hormones become more balanced. Every patient is different, and BHRT can take varying amounts of time to resolve your low testosterone. Dr. Shapiro’s programs are designed to work quickly, with the majority of the symptoms resolving within 90 days. If necessary, we can repeat and extend your BHRT until your hormones become balanced.

Corresponding & Complementary Procedures

At Tribeca Medaesthetics, we offer additional treatments that can work alongside and complement the improvement to your quality of life that BHRT can provide.

Peptide Therapy

Peptide therapy can treat a wide variety of age-related symptoms. It involves the administration of peptides, amino acids that support numerous bodily processes, as they are the “building blocks” of proteins. Peptides can address several conditions, such as the inability to lose weight, build muscle, repair tissue, and produce growth hormones. It is an effective anti-aging treatment overall. Along with your BHRT, peptide therapy can enhance your health and have you feeling younger and more energized.


Detoxification involves a range of treatments that can remove the harmful buildup of toxins within the body. Toxins can accumulate within the body from your environment, the food and water that you consume, and substances like tobacco and alcohol. Having excess toxins within your body can lead to liver disease, stroke, heart disease, and digestive disorders. The treatment involves testing that will identify specific toxins, metabolic imbalances, and nutrient deficiencies within your body. After testing, we can create a personalized treatment program to address symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, headaches, and difficulty sleeping. The treatment plan can involve supplements, intravenous therapy, and changes to your diet and lifestyle. Detoxification can work well in addition to your BHRT to optimize your well-being.

How Much Does BHRT Cost in Miami?

What are the common side effects of taking testosterone?

Experienced BHRT providers take the treatment approach of “start low and go slow” in terms of optimizing and balancing male hormones. This decreases the risk of misdiagnosis and resultant complications. Common side effects of excessive testosterone dosing include uncontrolled blood pressure, symptoms of prostate enlargement, oily skin, acne, mood changes, as well as gynecomastia (enlarged male breast tissue). 

What is hypogonadism?

Hypogonadism is a condition that men can develop as they age. It involves a chronic reduction of testosterone production. It can lead to symptoms such as low fertility, inability to lose weight and gain muscle, reduced bone density, poor mental focus, and mood swings. Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can reintroduce testosterone into the body and help to address these symptoms. 

What is andropause?

Andropause, or male menopause, is a condition caused by low androgen levels. Androgens are natural steroid hormones that regulate male characteristics. As men age, the production of androgens, particularly testosterone, can cause heightened irritability. Andropause is sometimes referred to as “irritable man syndrome”. This irritability is typically a result of decreased sexual, reproductive, and physical functionality. With the help of Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), men can achieve balanced androgens once more and feel like better versions of themselves.
