The time to think about post-surgical healing is before surgery. One of the best things that can be done to speed up recovery time is hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). Plastic Surgery recovery in a healthy person can heal up to 75% faster using HBOT, before and after surgery. Less pain, scars, down time for the patient, and infections are reported. Patients can return to work faster, with less bruising, or swelling. The patients also feel better overall.
