What to Eat After a Tummy Tuck Surgery?


Foods to Eat After a Tummy Tuck Surgery

Eating the right foods is one of the fastest ways to heal post-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 vitamin 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 to 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 that slow down your healing process. 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
