What To Eat Before BBL Surgery
Unless you’re on a specially formulated diet, it’s unlikely you’re currently getting the daily recommended amount of minerals, vitamins and nutrients most beneficial to you during surgery and post-surgical recovery. Your body requires more nutrients before and after plastic surgery to promote wound healing.
Proteins are essential for new blood cell and collagen production. They’re also vital to a well-functioning central nervous and immune system. Determine your daily protein intake, ideally 1.5 grams of protein per day for every kilogram of your body weight, if you’re a man. Women should aim for 1.2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day. These are the ideal minimums and should be adjusted as needed. The best sources of proteins in a plastic surgery diet are fish low in fat, eggs, lean organic meats, and vegetable proteins such as soybean products, seeds, nuts and quinoa.
Vitamins and Minerals
The presence of free radicals grows in response to surgical stress. They can retard healing and cause tissue damage. To prevent this, you should supplement your diet with a range of antioxidants such as Vitamins A and C, selenium, manganese and CoQ10, all available over the counter or online. Eat an array of organic fruits and vegetables at least five times a day—they’re rich in antioxidants.
What Not to Eat Before BBL Surgery
Salt intake should be reduced and sugar avoided. Refined sugar or foods rich in carbs, can suppress immune function and promote inflammation. A week before surgery, eliminate food and supplements that can inhibit anesthesia, immune system functions, healing and blood clotting: Omega 3c increases bleeding time. Vitamins E, C, K, B, A, D and herbal supplements. Even a vitamin supplement can increase bleeding time. Ginger, green tea, flaxseed, cayenne, ginkgo, eggplant, garlic, tomatoes and potatoes may affect blood clotting time or anesthesia and should be avoided until after recovery. Alcohol, caffeine, aspartame and MSG are also neurotoxins and should be eliminated.

What To Eat and What Not to Eat After a Brazilian Butt Lift
The Best Foods to Eat After a Brazilian Butt Lift
After undergoing a Brazilian butt lift, your body will have some inflammation. Something that can help reduce it is to stay hydrated. In addition, drinking enough water also helps avoid complications — such as blood clots or fat embolisms.
Something else that reduces inflammation is magnesium. Although there are vitamin supplements that can help you reach your doctor’s recommended daily intake, there are also plenty of foods that provide this nutrient naturally. A list of foods to eat after BBL includes:
. Swiss cheese
. Dark chocolate
. Soy milk
. Potatoes — with their skin
. Black and/or kidney beans
. Pumpkin seeds, cashews, and peanuts
. Egg yolks
. Fortified cereals
Also, while spices and marinades make everything taste better, try to eat as many bland foods as possible. This allows your digestive system more time to rest and gives your body more energy to dedicate to the healing process. So does cutting your food into small pieces and fully chewing every bite before swallowing.
Smoothies, sherbets, yogurt, soups, applesauce, puddings, watermelon, avocado, bananas, toast, and plain bagels are also easily digested. When eating vegetables, cook them instead of eating them raw. This lowers their fiber content, which reduces bloating and gas.

Foods to Avoid After a Brazilian Butt Lift
The same way there are foods that help reduce inflammation in your body, there are others that can actually cause additional inflammation. Avoid them throughout your healing period to ensure a smoother process. Foods to take a break from include:
. Processed meats — such as bacon, deli cuts, and sausages
. Refined grains — such as white bread, pasta, rice, and crackers
. Sugary cereals
. Fried foods
. Baked goods
. Fast foods
What should you eat to ‘feed the fat’ after your BBL?
What can you do after surgery that will help keep the fat on your butt? First let’s learn what we should NOT be doing:
In the article ‘The science of fatty acids and inflammation,’ Fritsche states that “high-fat feeding affected a number of metabolic processes associated with metabolic syndrome (e.g., hepatic TG accumulation, elevated fasting insulin, visceral adipose tissue accumulation) Visceral adipose tissue accumulation means gaining fat in your belly, and visceral fat is the type of fat that CANNOT be removed with another round of liposuction! That’s a powerful reason to NOT eat a high fat diet.
We still need fats in a healthy diet., but we can choose dietary fats wisely.
Are certain high-fat foods better than others as far as inflammation? Fritsche states that “a growing body of evidence suggests that inflammatory status should be included as one of the characteristics for which dietary fats are evaluated relative to their impact on human health” (Fritsche, 2015).
Ricciotti & Hur state that “fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids ... are part of a healthy diet that is associated with lower levels of inflammation” and “if your doctor hasn't prescribed high doses of fish oil, you'd be better advised to add foods containing omega-3s to your diet.”
Which Omega-3 foods should you choose? Ricciotti & Hur state that “your body can't manufacture omega-3 fatty acids—eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)—so it's important to get them through your diet. EPA and DHA are primarily found in fatty fish, such as salmon, tuna, and anchovies. ALA is found in plants and is available in vegetable oils, nuts, flaxseeds, and flaxseed oil.”
Protein Shakes After BBL?
Protein shakes can help boost this intake. Do not attempt to cut calories after surgery. Your body’s metabolism is higher with the stress of surgery and you also need to feed the fat cells. Drink AT LEAST 1-2 liters of water per day. Try to avoid carbonated beverages, excessive caffeine, sugar, and salt.
Can I Eat Pizza After BBL?
Unfortunately, there are some big misconceptions surrounding liposuction. One common misconception is that the surgery is for weight loss. Another misconception is that having it gives you carte blanche to eat what you like, since the fat won’t return. Unfortunately, liposuction doesn’t give you a pass to eat pizza for every meal. There are a few things you should do to maintain your liposuction results in the years after the surgery.
What should I expect after a BBL?
Since you will be coming out of anesthesia and will be unable to sit down, you will need someone to drive you home from the center and stay with you for 24 hours after the surgery. BBL patients typically take at least one week off of work, although taking two weeks as you will not be able to sit normally for two weeks following the surgery is recommended. Patients that need to return to work after one week may sit on a BBL pillow. You will wear a compression garment for six weeks following your Brazilian butt lift.
After your surgery, you will be unable to exercise for six weeks and will be required to sleep on your stomach or side. You will be 80% recovered at 3 months post-surgery and 90% recovered at 6 months. You will see your full results at one-year post-surgery.
Usually, the maximal size you notice is during the first few days of recovery. After that, there is a gradual loss of size as the swelling goes down and some of the fat is absorbed. By 6-8 weeks, most of what you see will remain. If you sense shrinking in the buttocks, it’s not a cause to worry because you are still at the healing stage. The area in your lower back will be still bruised and swollen and this will take 8-12 weeks to settle. Wear your garment and keep your follow up with your surgeon. You have to give your body at least 12 weeks to start seeing results and final results can take 3-6 months depending the way your body heals.
