The Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy after Plastic Surgery
Learn how hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help with plastic surgery recovery
Having plastic surgery or any other cosmetic procedure can be a very exciting time in your life, but we all know beauty can cause pain.
The good news is that plastic surgery recovery doesn’t have to be like this anymore! Many women and men are choosing to have hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in conjunction with their cosmetic procedures.
How is HBOT beneficial for plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy works by exposing the body to an atmosphere of 100% oxygen while inside a pressurized chamber.
HBOT helps to reduce swelling and discomfort while providing your body with at least 10–15 times its normal supply of oxygen. Because of this, many doctors recommend HBOT to help plastic surgery patients recover faster after their cosmetic procedures.
We all need oxygen to heal properly. Exposing your body to 100% oxygen can accelerate the healing process by allowing more oxygen to reach treated areas. This gives your body the opportunity to heal and significantly improve—and in some cases totally relieve—your presenting symptoms after surgery.
Patients undergoing the following cosmetic procedures can benefit from having HBOT pre- / post-procedure:
- Mommy Makeover
- Brazilian Butt Lift
- Fat Transfers
- Breast Augmentation / Breast Lift
- Rhinoplasty / Nose Job
- Mentoplasty / Chin Augmentation
- Cyst Removal
- Tummy Tuck
- Blepharoplasty / Eyelid surgery
- Hair Transplants
- Gynecomastia Treatment
- Fillers / Botox
and many more.
The top benefits of combining HBOT with plastic surgery:
- Speeds up healing and recovery with plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery by up to 75%
- Dramatically reduces post-surgical bruising, swelling and inflammation
- Scars have been shown to heal better with HBOT due to collagen production
- Decreased need for post-procedure pain pills
- Overall less pain, fewer scars, less downtime for the patient—so you can return to work faster, looking and feeling beautiful!
