Plastic Surgery & Hyperbarics

Whether a patient’s surgery is cosmetic or reconstructive, hyperbaric therapy is a non-invasive tool that may aid in the healing process and shorten recovery time.

Hyperbaric therapy has been increasingly used in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery, and has shown potential benefits in promoting wound healing, reducing the risk of infection, and improving the survival of tissues used in reconstructive procedures. It can also potentially reduce post-surgical bruising, swelling and inflammation and pain.

Many surgeons now recommend pre and/or postoperative HBOT to their patients to enhance their healing, recovery and improve results.
