How Does HBOT Help Plastic Surgery Recovery

The Science Behind The Oxygen & Pressure

HBOT boosts plastic surgery recovery. HBOT increases blood flow and accelerates wound repair, collagen production, and new blood vessels, delivering vital nutrients for faster regeneration.

The “increased oxygen supply promote tissue repair and regeneration, reduces swelling and inflammation, and enhances the immune system’s ability to fight infection.” Source

The result? Shorter hospital stays, reduced complications, and happier patients with sleeker, quicker returns to their natural glow. HBOT – it’s not just air, it’s a recovery superpower.

Procedures That Can Benefit From HBOT

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.
