NEW YORK, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- A new study released on September 20, 2010, in the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery details a breakthrough innovation in post-op treatment for facelifts.  The study, performed by renowned New York Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Andrew Jacono details how Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) Therapy addresses bruising in patients undergoing facelifts, and proves to decrease bruising by 35 percent, seven days post-operation.

"Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy works to increase oxygen to facial tissue and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, which in turn, contributes to a faster recovery," explains Dr. Jacono, who cites faster healing time among the top concerns of facial plastic surgery patients.  "My patients are all very busy and are eager to return to their public lives as quickly as possible," he says.

Facelifts were the most popular surgical procedure for women in 2009, according to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS).  Compared to 2008, facelift procedures actually increased by 14 percent.

HBO is not Dr. Jacono's first foray into natural approaches to healing.  He also incorporates scientifically proven holistic elements like homeopathy, massage and music therapy into his daily surgical practice.  Dr. Jacono is known for his masterful results and helping his high profile patients make a rapid return to the public eye.

"Scientific studies also indicate that homeopathic remedies like Arnica Montana and dietary supplements like Bromelaine and Hyaluronic Acid can help minimize swelling and bruising and speed healing," says Dr. Jacono.

Dr. Jacono's new study, "Effect of Perioperative Hyperbaric Oxygen on Bruising in Face-lifts," co-authored by Dr. Benjamin Stong, appears in the September-October 2010 issue of Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery.
