Better Nutrition is Key Following Tummy Tuck Procedure

Tummy Tuck Patient - Premier Plastic Surgery ArtsYour tummy tuck procedure is complete and recovery is going fine. It’s likely that you’re wondering how life will be different following the procedure. While there will certainly be changes in your appearances, there should also be changes in your lifestyle. We love it when our patients tell us that they finally feel comfortable in their favorite swimsuit and turn heads at the beach. However, there are a few caveats to keep your new body in great shape. After all, you didn’t come this far to end up back where you started. Follow these basic nutrition guidelines to help maintain your new look after your recent tummy tuck procedure.

Portion control should be at the top of your list. The rule of thumb is to eat meals that are approximately the size of your hand.
Eat scheduled meals throughout the day. Do not skip meals.
Avoid foods and beverages that are high in sugar.
Choose foods that can be digested easily. Keep your food high in protein and low in salt.
Pay attention to your body and learn to stop eating when you are full.
Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. It is suggested you drink half your weight in ounces each day. For example, if you weigh 120 pounds you should drink 60 ounces or five 12 oz glasses of water.
Consult a nutritionist to create a custom eating plan that fits your lifestyle and will help you reach your goals.

We hope you love your new look and will do your part to stay healthy. While a tummy tuck procedure will help you achieve your desired body shape, there is still no substitute for a balanced diet and exercise routine. A great way to stay on track is to enlist a family member or friend to help you stay accountable to your health goals. We also suggest that you reward yourself with non-food incentives for staying on track and accomplishing your objectives. Most importantly, enjoy your new look and celebrate the results of your new tummy tuck procedure.
