The eating regimen after a tummy tuck

After the tummy tuck procedure, you’ll have a flatter and tighter tummy. However, the result is not permanent, as I tell every patient during an initial consultation. The patient’s discipline and type of living will greatly affect the result of the intervention. That’s why having a tailored eating regimen after the procedure is mostly advised by the surgeons.

If you are my patient, I will advise you to take plenty of fluids and protein-filled foods, especially during the recovery period. These supplements will help you in having a speedy recovery and it will return your body to its normal function. You might also notice a difference in your appetite but it will soon go back to normal. Your body will soon adapt to the changes and then recover from the side effects of your pain medications.

Also, you must keep in mind that you should avoid consuming foods that have more calories than you expend. Foods with calories help you accumulate fats in a short period of time. However, I cannot calculate your personal metabolism. Patients have different genetics and hormonal levels. You must also consider consuming foods with the right timing.

Keep in mind that you can still gain weight after a tummy tuck or even after liposuction. If you want to maintain the result of the intervention, then you must start focusing yourself on having healthy eating habits. The eating regimen after the surgery doesn’t mean that you have to deprive yourself of eating your favorite foods. You just have to limit yourself on consuming them, especially those processed foods and takeout. I strongly advise that you put on your list a variety of whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, and protein. You can incorporate these foods into your daily meal to provide your body the fuel it needs for your day to day routine.
