Cosmetic Surgery and Hyperbaric Oxygen
Having plastic surgery or any other cosmetic procedure can be a time of great anticipation and stress. Patients recovering from cosmetic surgery need to exercise extra care to ensure that tissues receive enough oxygen during the healing process.Treatment with HBOT has been shown to increase circulating stem cells, which are crucial to the repair of injured tissues. Recovery from some procedures can be accompanied by differing levels of pain. HBOT decreases oedema, accelerates healing in patients undergoing face lifts, laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, tummy tucks, liposuction, breast reduction or augmentation and many other procedures. HBOT in conjunction with cosmetic surgery is an effective way to expedite the healing process, minimize excessive scarring, moderate pain and shorten the recuperation time.
