Pre & Post-Surgery Diet To Recover Faster After Your Brazilian Butt Lift in New Jersey

Brazilian Butt Lift

When considering a Brazilian Butt Lift in New Jersey, there’s more to planning and recovery than staying off your bottom for a couple of months after. You’ll need to think about your health, your BMI, and maintaining a nutrient-dense diet before and after the procedure.

Here, we’ll outline tips you can use to improve your diet both before and after, so your new booty looks great and the rest of you does too.

A Well-Balanced Diet Is A Key To New Jersey Brazilian Butt Lift Results

Eating well helps your body be prepared to weather the stress of surgery, heal fast and establish fat grafts quickly. You may not realize it, but only a percentage of implanted fat is expected to survive. One of the factors that influence this amount will be your nutritional health.

Following a specific diet preoperatively and postoperatively is often recommended by plastic surgeons to reduce swelling and ensure optimal healing of incisions.

Consuming insuffiecient nutrients (dieting and eating poor-quality food) can impair collagen synthesis needed to heal and form strong wound closure. It can reduce immune function as well, leaving you more prone to infection and prolonged inflammation.

The pre-surgery Brazilian Butt Lift diet a New Jersey plastic surgeon recommends:

In the months leading up to your procedure, avoid processed foods, and refined carbohydrates like white rice and flour which can increase inflammation. Don’t smoke, and avoid excess alcohol consumption.

Focus on whole foods like vegetables, lean meat, natural essential fatty acids and fruit. Whole grains, beans and lentils in moderation are full of nutritious fiber and proteins.

Vitamin C is naturally occurring in many fruits and vegetables, and this vitamin plays a significant role in healing and skin health.

Protein also helps you heal faster, and good sources include chicken, beans, fish, lentils and eggs. Dairy should be minimized if possible because it can lead to excess mucus and inflammation for some people.

Good news: You can eat more fat after your Brazilian Butt Lift!

Omega-3s and essential fats are much-needed to establish a healthy body, strong skin and brain. It also benefits you after a fat transfer procedure because consuming fat ensures you don’t burn off and lose the fat that was implanted.

Rich, natural food sources include fish like salmon and avocados. Seeds and nuts like chia seeds, flax, and walnuts are also incredibly healthy. Ensure you have cold-pressed olive oil or coconut oil on hand as they are anti-inflammatory and can replace butter or cheese in many recipes.

Don’t forget plenty of water to stay hydrated, assist wound-healing, avoid constipation and feel strong.

If you wish to add supplements to your diet, talk to your plastic surgeon first because some ingredients and herbal items can be counter-productive for surgery. Herbs like Ginseng and St. John’s wort may lead to unwanted bruising or bleeding, so always check the label and ask if you’re not sure.
