"Dr. Gorman and his staff are absolutely amazing! They are genuinely nice people and go above and beyond to answer all your questions and make you feel comfortable with getting your surgery. I have never been at a doctor's office that is so warm and inviting. I am so glad I found Dr. Gorman and highly recommend him. I would also like to recommend Lauren for your Botox needs. She is absolutely amazing and so sweet and gentle. I love her so much! Thank you Dr. Gorman and staff! Y'all are the best!"- M.W. / Facebook / Feb 06, 2017
"Loving my New Breast! - From the moment I walked into the office for my consultation, I felt Welcome. His staff was nothing but nice and happily answered all of my 5000 questions. Dr. Wilder was the 5th doctor I consulted with as none of the others made me feel truly comfortable with their quality of work or aftercare. Dr. Wilder and Trisha took all the stress and nervousness out of my decision. Speaking of Trisha ,..."- M. / RealSelf / Jun 07, 2017

"I am extremely pleased with my experience with Dr. Gorman and his staff. During my consultation Dr. Gorman made sure I understood my procedure and answered all my questions. His experience and knowledge made me feel safe and ready. The info packet I was given served as a great reference before and after my surgery. I am six weeks post surgery and amazed by my results! I got exactly what I asked for, he's a genius!!"- B. / Healthgrades / May 24, 2017
"This is long but honest and personal. My name is Missy and I live in Round Rock Texas. I wasn't planning on writing a review but Dr. Gorman was the only surgeon I went to who wasn't personally recommended. I just googled him actually. I wanted to have extra skin and hanging stomach from wight loss removed and get a much needed breast lift and augmentation. I was excited about the consult and super nervous at the same time. My case wasn't easy but the results were amazing!!I could not have picked a better plastic surgeon than Dr.Gorman. From the very beginning, I have been well cared for by Dr.Gorman and his staff. I felt the trust from the start and I relinquished the power and totally trusted him. I decided that day that he was "IT".In the initial consult I got that he knew what he was doing and that allowed me to trust him and I was very confident in his abilities to provide me with what I wanted. And not to take away from the staff, from beginning to end they were all amazing. All positives, welcoming, efficient, attentive, so caring. The staff has genuine concern for me and my feelings/situation/recovery, it wasn't fake or forced. I like everything. I like my doctor. I liked my nurse and anesthesiologist, I liked the surgery center, I liked the after care stay place, I like the girls at the front desk, I like it all. Let me tell you, everyone here is phenomenal and the aftercare was just as exceptional. I have nothing negative to say, even with my appointments, I was in and out. I can't say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Gorman, his office and his staff. I know that this is their business and what they do but they made me feel like I wasn't just business to them. Y'all are the best! The office is just that great. My skin care girls Lauren and Helen are the best, so if you need any skin care treatments or injection enhancements, ..See them, they are amazing!!! I am never trading them for anyone else. I might be in love with everyone there"- M.O. / Google / May 15, 2017
Am I a candidate for pellets?@headingTag>
Symptoms may vary widely from depression and anxiety to night sweats and sleeplessness for example. You will be recommended to have blood work done which will determine your hormone levels. Once your doctor reviews and determines you are a candidate, we will schedule an appointment for insertion.
What are pellets made from?@headingTag>
They are made from wild yams and soy. Wild yams and soy have the highest concentration of hormones of any substance. There are no known allergens associated with wild yams and soy, because once the hormone is made it is no longer yam or soy.
How long will treatment last?@headingTag>
Every 3-6 months depending on the person. Everyone is different so it depends on how you feel and what the doctor determines is right for you. If you are really active, you are under a lot of stress or it is extremely hot your treatment may not last as long. Absorption rate is based on cardiac output.
How are they administered?@headingTag>
Pellet insertion is a relatively simple in-office procedure done under local anesthesia. It takes an average of 5-10 minutes in total. The pellets are inserted subcutaneously (under the fatty lining of skin) in the upper buttocks through a very small incision. The incision is then closed with surgical glue or sterile tape strips. Patients should not be able to feel the implants under their skin. Hormone implants placed under the skin consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones, keeping a patient’s levels in a therapeutic range until the next pellet procedure.
What are the side effects?@headingTag>
Unlike with other forms of hormone therapy, there are few side effects with pellet hormone therapy. Two percent of patients experience mild acne or facial hair, and less than 1% experience hair thinning. All of these mild side effects are easily treatable.
What if I’m on birth control?@headingTag>
The doctor can determine what your hormone needs are even if you are on birth control.
What if I’m already on HRT?@headingTag>
This is an easy transition. The doctor will be able to determine your needs even though you may be currently taking these other forms of HRT.
