Dr. Michael Lee and his Body Logic
Youth is one of life’s most coveted possessions – especially in South Florida. In this sun-filled, tropical playground where appearance often plays a vital role in a person’s self esteem, as well as their social status, the need for a youthful appearance is essential. Unfortunately, many of the same attributes that lead to our desire to stay young, such as laying in the sun or late nights gallivanting, also lead to the reality of looking older. In addition, South Florida’s ever-growing and often times stressful, urban environment leads to many people showing their age well before they are ready to do so.
Meet Dr. Michael Lee and BodyLogicMD. Lee is a former OB/GYN and professor at the University of Miami, who has chosen to use his medical expertise exclusively in the field of anti-aging. Lee recently joined the BodyLogicMD national network of anti-aging physicians and is board-certified from the American Academy of Anti-Aging.
“I decided to trade in the days of delivering babies and performing hysterectomies to helping women suffering from menopause as well as men complaining of the symptoms of andropause and aging,” said Lee. “My private BodyLogicMD practice allows me to spend quality time with patients.”
Dr. Lee is now accepting patients providing Miami with its first doctor dedicated exclusively to helping women and men with hormonal imbalances and specializing in bioidentical hormone therapy. Dr. Lee offers bioidentical hormone therapy integrated with fitness and nutrition programs for women and men suffering from stress induced adrenal fatigue, symptoms of perimenopause, menopause, and andropause (the male menopause).

The term “bioidentical” denotes hormones that are chemically synthesized so as to be identical to the natural hormones of the human body. One advantage of bioidentical hormones is its emphasis on topical administration, which avoids problems like blood clotting, as well as the ability for doctors to prescribe individualized compounded doses rather than the “one dose fits all” approach.
“I can provide specific doses of hormones for each patient’s specific needs,” says Lee. “We send our prescriptions to a compounding pharmacy that only uses natural ingredients. For example, our use of bioidentical estrogen can stimulate collagen production, which provides skin with greater elasticity, prevents bone loss and improves a patient’s cholesterol profile. It’s preventative aging.”
Another benefit to Lee’s approach to medicine is his doctor/patient relationship. “I only see five or six patients per day,” he explains. “People are becoming dissatisfied with medicine today. Doctors emphasize quantity over quality. I spend a full hour with my patients so that I know exactly what they need, and they know exactly what I am doing.”
Dr. Lee’s anti-aging treatments are for both women and men suffering from hormonal imbalance. For more information on Dr. Lee and bioidentical hormone therapy, visit www.bodylogicmd.com.
