Medical Practice Creates Unique Recovery Program for Non-Patients
San Clemente, CA, December 17, 2015 –(PR.com)– Facial Aesthetic Concepts (FAC), one of Orange County’s most respected cosmetic enhancement practices, has announced a new program designed to improve the outcome of facial surgeries, regardless of where they were performed.
The treatment is called Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), a treatment that has been recognized over the last 30 years to speed the healing of traumatic soft tissue and bony injuries as well as prevent further destruction of tissue from a variety of causes including infection, radiation therapy, and poor circulation. Until recently, it has not been used to speed healing from the uncomplicated plastic surgical procedure.
Over three years ago, Facial Aesthetic Concepts installed its first HBOT chamber at its San Clemente surgical facility to promote healing from a variety of cosmetic surgical procedures. After performing nearly 1000 treatments, HBOT’s ability to improve the appearance of incisions, speed recovery by reducing bruising and swelling quickly, improve fat transplant viability, and improve the overall recovery from surgery and anesthesia has proven to be a significant benefit to patients.
HBOT works by increasing the amount of oxygen delivered to all tissues nearly 20 times greater than the body can deliver it by breathing room air alone.
By subjecting patients to pressures about equal to those experienced when snorkeling 12 to 18 feet deep while breathing 100% oxygen, much more oxygen gets delivered to tissues particularly to surgical tissues that always have less circulation. This allows for a more efficient metabolism of cells needed for healing and to fight infection, both speeding healing and reducing the risk of infection. Surgical scars are diminished and swelling reduces more quickly.
“HBOT is an added service we want to provide for all cosmetic plastic surgery patients in the region, not just our own,” says Dr. Richard Gangnes, FAC founder. “We know that access to HBOT is limited to but that should not prevent anyone who has had a facelift or other cosmetic facial surgery from benefitting from its proven results.” With the newer chambers the cost to patients has been reduced and HBOT is very affordable.

Hyperbaric Healing Institute provides state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical procedure that involves the patient being placed in a completely enclosed chamber in which the atmosphere is controlled and the patient is able to breathe pure 100 percent oxygen. This level exceeds atmospheric pressure. The hyperbaric process places oxygen in places within the body at a cellular level, and also where the circulation might be blocked. HBOT therapy is not painful and it is not an invasive procedure. HBOT therapy is used in conjunction with other medical treatments as part of a patient’s treatment plan. Learn More
