Post surgery is the time when a patient needs to focus on healing by getting much-needed rest. One of the most significant things someone can do to speed up recovery time is hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). This kind of treatment helps reduce swelling, lessen pain, and speeds up the body’s healing processes. Oxygen also has an anti-bacterial effect, helping to minimize any possible infections a patient might encounter due to complications. This particular kind of therapy can reduce recovery times for patients who’ve had plastic surgery by 33 to 50 percent.
HBOT is the process of which elevated levels of rich oxygen is distributed throughout our circulatory system, and tissues inside our body, igniting the body’s healing response. Also, the oxygen will help decrease a patients anxiety, and stress, which is common among those who’ve just experienced plastic surgery, as the levels of oxygen within our brain are elevated. Post-op patients need to be in a healthy state of mind while going through the healing phase because any added stress and anxiety can prolong the bodies healing process.
The following cosmetic procedures can benefit from having HBOT after surgery:
