"Any recommendations on foods to eat after surgery? I know to keep to low sodium starting out, but any suggestions?"
DR. POUSTI: Food after Tummy Tuck?
Thank you for the question.
There is no specific “recommended diet” for the post-tummy tuck patient. A well-balanced diet with high fiber and a good protein source would obviously be helpful. Adding a protein shake ( to each meal) if necessary may also be helpful especially if your appetite is curtailed ( which often happens during this period). Frequent hydration is also important.
