You’ll Appreciate the Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
- Posted on: Dec 16 2019
If you are planning to undergo surgery you have likely been concerned with the pain, swelling, and risk of infection that comes with recovery. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a popular treatment amongst people who have had common cosmetic surgical procedures like abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), rhinoplasty (nose refinement), liposuction, facelift, and breast augmentation.
What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
HBOT is a treatment that increases oxygen concentration in all body tissues. When certain areas of the body are affected by surgical trauma, HBOT brings more oxygen to the cells of the damaged tissue-stimulating growth of new blood vessels. This supplies the nourishment your body needs for healing leading to a faster recovery and decreased scarring.
HBOT is a non-invasive medical treatment that requires a patient to breathe 100% oxygen at atmospheric pressures 1 to 3 times greater than sea-level in a sealed chamber.
The use of HBOT may require 2-3 treatments prior to surgery, to stimulate and enhance the normal functions of the skin. This will then require 3-4 treatments post-cosmetic surgery. Each HBOT treatment provided by Dr. Benjamin Lam is 60 minutes and is estimated to reduce recovery time by up to 50%.

-Decreased risk of infection
