COSMETIC AND RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) enhances neovascularization (formation of blood vessels), reduces edema (swelling) and bruising in the tissues quickly and effectively.Similarly, biosynthetic and stimulates reparative processes of the skin by fibroblast proliferation, collagen synthesis and hyperoxygenation thereby significantly reduces postoperative recovery time in all types of intervention, especially in cosmetic surgery and / or reconstructive, also reducing the likelihood of infection and scarring.
Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists agree that one of the "key" to reduce the aging process is the good oxygenation. The high concentration of pressurized oxygen at 100% used in the treatments of hyperbaric oxygen, accelerates the production of nutrients and amino acids within the tissues recover within days instead of weeks or months.
Specific therapeutic applications:
- Liposuction and liposculpture
- Skin grafts and flaps
- Reconstructive Surgery
- Pre and Post-operative
- Breast Implant
HBOT is also very useful in cases where the survival of tissue grafts or flaps of difficult viability is compromised due to tissue hypoxia or poor vascularization (eg, irradiated areas), in these cases, treatment reduces the need for perform more grafts, and improves tissue acceptance rates.
For patients over age, or physical condition deteriorated or compromised, HBO can be used before surgery to improve the overall condition of the patient and prevent complications.
