HBOT is approved for the treatment of “compromised flaps and grafts” resulting from complications of advanced gender affirmation surgeries. These gender-affirming surgical techniques, while necessary, are prone to a range of serious complications. Following surgery, utilizing the healing powers of hyperbaric oxygen therapy has proven to be incredibly successful. The benefits include:

  • Speeds surgical wound healing
  • Wards off infections
  • Increases circulation in injured postoperative tissues– critical for a successful flap or graft procedure
  • Comfortable, safe and noninvasive healing modality
  • Promotes superior tissue functionality
  • Improves scarring
  • Enhances desired cosmetic results

After your gender affirmation surgery, life is full of hope for the future. Avoiding complications is extremely important, not only due to the associated financial costs, but also due to health risks, anguish, and worries about the outcome of revision surgery.

With HBOT added to the post-operative healing regimen, you can expect a superior outcome, both functionally and aesthetically, along with a faster healing time. Talk to your surgeon about adding hyperbaric oxygen therapy to your care.  As it is covered by most insurance plans, this non-invasive, painless healing therapy can help lead to results that bring you more joy and satisfaction in all the years ahead.
