What Is Hormone Management?
Menopause and the years leading up to it (known as perimenopause) are marked by a major drop in estrogen and progesterone within your body. During this transition (typically in your 40s or 50s), your periods will become irregular and eventually stop. Menopause can bring about a number of uncomfortable symptoms, including hot flashes, vaginal dryness, low sex drive, night sweats, weight gain, and moodiness. If you're in menopause, you may be able to get some relief through hormone therapy, which replaces the low levels of estrogen and progesterone. At Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta, Dr. Gerry Sotomayor offers hormone management services for women in many different stages of life.

"I don’t have a reason to complain for the liposuction procedure at this clinic. The staff were friendly they didn’t share my procedure to anyone I was with. I simply brought myself with my lying roommate and he picked me up for the medical clinic after a couple hours. Healed just fine."- V. / Google / Dec 19, 2021
"(Translated by Google) Excellent doctor, I have known him since 97, he took care of my daughters' pregnancies, I love that he talks about God, great human being, it almost takes me 1 hour to get there, but it doesn't matter because doctor, like him, there is no where I live in covington, ga, what else can I say? God bless you always !!!! (Original) Excelente doctor lo conozco desde el 97 el atendió mis embarazos de mis hijas me encanta que habla d Dios gran ser humano casi me toma 1 hora para llegar pero no importa porque doctor como el no hay donde vivo en covington ga que mas puedo de decir d el k Dios lo Bendiga siempre!!!!"- T.M. / Google / Nov 18, 2021
"Love my Results but Scarring is Bad - I waited until I could do a real review. Now I’m over 3 months post-op. I first did a consultation the second week of March. Everything went well and told me I would be a candidate. The staff was really nice-A1. I met Dr Sotomayor briefly this day. I paid the deposit and scheduled for 2 weeks out for lower/upper ab and flanks (i wanted to do the back rolls as well but decided not to). I honestly booked on faith because the reviews were iffy. Day of surgery, I come in they take vitals and give me a “relaxation pill” and local anesthesia. Now here is where my problem lies but I was so out of it, I couldn’t respond at the time. I thought Dr Sotomayor was doing the surgery but it ended up being a lady named Dr. V. I feel she did me good but this def should’ve been communicated because I literally knew nothing about her. During the approx 2hr surgery, it was a bit painful but they acknowledged my pain and handled it great. I was sent home with instructions and meds.To sum this all up, I love my results considering I had a lot of fat-i think she said she got rid of 4000cc. After the lipo, i was not in a ton of pain but the itching and swelling is a beast. The scarring is bad. I have use Shea butter, Vitamin E oil and Bio Oil every single day, twice a day. The scarring has improved and hopefully will be non existent one day but only time and consistency will tell. If you are ok with scarring then go with them. The price was good considering I had a 35 BMI. My advice to Graceful Contours is to be up front about who will perform the surgery. I will add pics of my great outcome!"- C. / RealSelf / Jul 25, 2021

How Hormone Management Works
At Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta, you'll have an evaluation with Dr. Sotomayor to assess your symptoms. Typically, blood hormone testing is done to detect whether a hormonal imbalance is present. During your visit, we can provide more information on the benefits of hormone management and help you determine whether it's a good fit for your needs and lifestyle. Hormone therapy is provided as part of an individualized treatment plan. Initially, you might want to try recommended lifestyle changes, such as getting more sleep, reducing your stress, and focusing on healthy eating and exercise. We can also offer customized doses of estrogen, progesterone, or both based on your current hormone levels. Many patients notice an improvement in their symptoms within the first few weeks of starting hormone medications.
