You Deserve To Age Gracefully & Feel Like Yourself Again

“I don’t feel bad, I just don’t feel good.”

This is a familiar story shared among many patients during their first consultation with Dr. Marguerite Weston. Hormonal imbalances are an increasingly common culprit of discomfort. As a top hormone therapy clinic in Columbus, Ohio, the Wellness Center at Donaldson Plastic Surgery is fully equipped to accurately diagnose why the imbalance is happening and design a comprehensive program to help you feel your best – all based on your unique history, goals and lifestyle! 

We Can Help You Handle Menopause With Grace

What Happens When Our Hormones Are "Off"


Patients often experience fatigue, muscle aches, stiffness in joints, weight gain, acne and hair loss as a result of hormonal imbalances. To determine if your body’s chemical messengers are misfiring, Dr. Weston will employ the DUTCH Test. This advanced hormone test uses urine and saliva samples to create a thorough profile of your unique melatonin, adrenal hormones, sex hormones and metabolite levels.

The valuable information collected from the DUTCH Test, combined with an all-encompassing interview, gives Dr. Weston everything she needs to get to the root causes of your pain and malaise. Then we talk solutions — the life-changing therapies that will put you back in control of your body.

Cortisol Testing: Helping You To Manage The Stress Hormone

Too much or too little cortisol in the blood can indicate an issue with the all-important adrenal glands. Our team will run a cortisol test to accurately and quantitatively understand how “stressed” your body is and identify any adrenaline-based dysfunction that may be disrupting your life.

An untreated abundance of cortisol can increase your risk of high blood pressure, bone loss and Type 2 Diabetes. Too little cortisol could explain chronic fatigue, dizziness, mood swings and muscle weakness. The key is to catch the imbalance early before it gets worse and then design a sustainable plan to help regulate the stress hormone to a manageable level. 

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement (BHRT)

Bioidentical hormone therapy (sometimes referred to as “natural hormone therapy”) is a treatment plan designed to effectively balance or boost hormones in the body. Most commonly used to ease symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, BHRT uses plant estrogens that are chemically identical to what we naturally make within our own bodies to improve the moderate and severe symptoms most commonly associated with menopause.

These Symptoms Include:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Disruptive mood swings
  • Weight gain/unwanted weight loss
  • Memory loss
  • Restlessness and trouble sleeping
  • Decrease libido and/or pain during sex

Because BHRT works to regulate hormones, this treatment may also help reduce your risk of developing Diabetes, cataracts or bone/tooth loss. Some patients have also found a decrease in skin wrinkles and an increase in elasticity as a result of this unique hormone therapy option.

Perimenopausal Treatments

Systemic Estrogen Therapies & Natural Solutions

Perimenopause is the gradual transition into and out of menopause that women naturally experience as they age. While the process is organic, that doesn’t necessarily make it comfortable or routine for many patients. Dr. Weston will create a plan that employs holistic lifestyle choices in tandem with safe perimenopausal treatments to help each patient as she prepares for this next stage in life. 

Our Medicinal Treatments Often Include: 

  • Systemic estrogen therapy
  • Vaginal estrogen 
  • Antidepressants 
  • Gabapentin (to reduce hot flashes)

Managing Endocrine Disruptors: Hormones That Cause Hair Thinning

Stress and hormone imbalances are a root cause of hair thinning and shedding. Disruptions in your body’s natural endocrine system caused by lifestyle factors can speed up this process and lead to noticeable hair loss. To get your body’s hormones back on track, Dr. Weston employs natural hormone therapies and medical-grade supplements that address the root cause of thinning to promote hair wellness from within.

Restore Your Hair & Prevent Future Shedding 

If you are already noticing the effects of hair thinning, our hair restoration solutions can be combined with hormonal therapy for a full-fledged counter attack to hair loss. PRP for hair growth is a targeted treatment that utilizes your body’s own growth hormones to stimulate dormant hair follicles & retain and strengthen your hair from falling out at the root.

 

Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Postpartum Hormone Changes

Changes in body chemistry are constant throughout the female health journey, especially during pregnancy and childbirth. New mothers can be clouded with emotions and physical symptoms of haziness, anger, anxiety, and depression due to fluctuations in hormones like estrogen and progesterone. Achieving an optimal hormonal balance during these periods can mean the difference between getting through and fully experiencing life-altering moments. 

Hormonal shifts through pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum (followed by menopause and aging) each come with a unique set of  challenges that require the right hormonal interventions at the right time. Dr. Weston uses what she knows about optimizing female hormones and all of the tools at her disposal to give you a healthy and to help you feel supported all the way through your postpartum recovery.

 

 

TRT Replacement & Hormone Therapy For Men

You’ve heard the radio ads. You’ve read the blog articles. It’s no secret: as men age, testosterone levels begin to decrease, resulting in decreased muscle tone, hair loss, lower daily energy and sexual dysfunction. Luckily, there is a solution – rather, a combination of solutions – that can help you feel vital once again! 

Dr. Weston will first gauge your levels through the use of a testosterone screen before prescribing the right balance of solutions to get the job done. We’re not here to just push pills on patients! Rather, we will use some of these safe and well-regulated TRT treatments (injections, oral medications, topical creams and/or patches) in combination with lifestyle changes to help you feel your best. 

Regulating & Restoring Thyroid Function

The thyroid gland is responsible for controlling your metabolism. Without proper function, the thyroid can cause a whole host of problems, extending from forgetfulness, to eyesight issues, to heavy menstrual periods and beyond. Dr. Weston always does her best to reduce the long-term reliance on medication, but certain circumstances may need drug-based solutions to yield optimal therapeutic outcomes. She will work with you directly to create a strategy to eventually remove medication from your routine.
