Foods to Eat After a Tummy Tuck Surgery

Eating the right foods is one of the fastest ways to heal after a tummy tuck surgery. That’s why it’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions on what foods to avoid. Foods to keep in your kitchen for after your tummy tuck include

  • Fresh fruits and vegetables high in vitamins A and C
  • High protein foods include lean meats like fish and poultry, beans, eggs, and cheese
  • Omega-3-rich foods such as mackerel, salmon, chia seeds, and walnuts
  • Dairy products such as milk and yogurt
  • Vitamins such as arnica and bromelain found in bananas and avocado reduce bruising
  • Grains and nuts
  • Stay Hydrated- be sure that you are taking in at least 64 ounces of water throughout the day

Foods to Avoid After a Tummy Tuck Surgery

Processed foods are typically high in salt and sugar, which can increase bloating and cholesterol which slow down your healing after a tummy tuck. That is why you should avoid foods such as:

  • Fried foods
  • Baked goods
  • Sodas
  • Fast food
  • Sugary cereals
  • Foods high in sugar and salt
  • Alcohol
