Benefits of Oxygen Therapy with Plastic Surgery
How does Oxygen Therapy help with Plastic Surgery?
Is HBOT beneficial for Plastic Surgery/ Cosmetic procedures?
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. But it does not have to be like this anymore. Many women and men are choosing to have Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy(HBOT) in conjunction with their cosmetic procedures.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves exposing the body to 100% oxygen while inside a Hyperbaric chamber that is pressurized greater than what you normally experience.
HBOT helps to reduce swelling and discomfort while providing the body with at least 10-15 times its normal supply of oxygen. Many doctors have been using HBOT to help their plastic surgery patients recover faster after surgery.
We all need oxygen to heal properly and exposing your body to 100% oxygen can accelerate the healing process by allowing more oxygen to reach treated areas. This gives the body the opportunity to heal and significantly improve, if not totally relieve their patients of their presenting symptoms.
The following cosmetic procedures can benefit from having HBOT pre/post procedure:
Rhinoplasty /Nose Job
To name a few…
Top Benefits of combining HBOT with Plastic Surgery:
• Speeds up healing and recovery with plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery by up to 75%.
• Dramatically reduce post-surgical bruising, swelling and inflammation.
• Scars have been shown to heal better with HBOT due to collagen production.
