Post-Liposuction Diet Recommendations

After liposuction or any cosmetic and medical procedure, it is important for your body to heal. When it comes to liposuction which addresses excess fat of the body, it is even more important to follow a healthy post-treatment diet to promote both healing and prevent excess weight gain that could potentially jeopardize the look you have been trying to achieve with liposuction in the first place.

During your lipo treatment at Avalon Lipo & Aesthetics with Dr. Reza Tirgari and his team, you will be advised as to which foods to eat and which ones to avoid both prior to and after your liposuction treatment in San Diego or Carlsbad.

In general, the following foods should be avoided for an extended period of time after liposuction surgery.

•    Saturated fat – this is fat that is solid at room temperature and is found in most animal and animal by products as well as fried and processed foods. To learn more about saturated fats, please visit the American Heart Association website.
•    Sugar – sugar and sugary food may cause gain weight and defeat the purpose of your liposuction procedure. Likewise, sugar is low in vitamins and nutrients and will not offer any benefit to the healing process of the body.
•    Salty foods – You should avoid salty foods for at least two to fours months after liposuction. Sodium is known to cause inflammation in the body, thereby affecting the healing process. However, you can use sodium substitutes such as natural herbs and spices.
•    Alcohol – alcoholic beverages can negatively interact with any post-treatment medication that you are taking as well as cause dehydration. You should avoid alcohol for at least 10 to 14 days post-procedure. Instead, you should consume healthy amounts of water and natural juices to aid your body in the healing process as well as flush out any toxins associated with medication and the procedure.

However, there are plenty of foods that you should eat post-procedure that will help you heal and maintain the maximum results of your lipo procedure. These include:

•    Liquids: water, juices and smoothies
•    Vegetables
•    Fruits
•    Fish for omega-3 fatty acids
•    Nuts and legumes
•    Healthy grains
•    Lean, natural proteins

After your procedure, Dr. Tirgari and his team will discuss the details of your pre-and-post liposuction diet and give you tips on how to speed up the healing process as well as maintain the best results possible. You will also receive guidance on post-surgery exercise and physical activities.

As you prepare for your procedure or if you are just doing your research, please keep in mind that the best way to achieve the best aesthetes results is to take your lifestyle into considerations, especially when it comes to your diet, alcohol consumption and physical activity levels.

Whether they are continuing laser hair removal, thermage, skin tightening, chemical peels or any other service, it is often available to them as soon as mere days after the lipo procedure, depending on the specific service they are having done.  Usually, once the small incisions are fully healed, practically any service can be done.

Best Time of the Year to Get Liposuction

When considering the best time to do liposuction, common wisdom states that the most important factor to consider is the size of the body area to be done and how much time can be  allotted for healing.  For small areas, liposuction can be done virtually anytime, since healing time required  is minimal.  If larger, or multiple areas are to be done, it is wise to allot enough time for healing before embarking on any vacations, etc.

Typically, patients have chosen to receive lipo either a few months before the summertime, or during the holidays, when they are able to take time away from work.  Patients can typically expect for healing to take anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months, with the tiny cannula incisions becoming virtually invisible 2 months after the procedure.   This is important, especially before the summer season, since by then, healing will have fully occurred and patients can then expose their bodies without worrying that the lipo incisions will show. Liposuction has now become such a commonly performed procedure, with so many improvements in recovery, healing and other factors, the question of when is the best time has now become much more of a personal preference.

Laser Liposuction Vs. Traditional Liposuction

Laser liposuction is now the safer and, sometimes, more effective liposuction method than traditional liposuction. This is why Dr. Reza Tirgari of Avalon Lipo & aesthetics offers laser liposuction to all of his San Diego and Carlsbad liposuction patients. Before we go over the many benefits of laser liposuction, let’s first review the steps performed during traditional lipo.

In traditional lipo, larger incisions are made and a cannula is used to loosen the fat and separate it from the skin. Next, a suction device is applied to get rid of the fat. While this method does deliver desired results, patients who undergo traditional lipo tend to experience more bruising, swelling and longer recovery periods post-surgery.

In laser liposuction, the incisions are smaller and often heal on their own, resulting in minimal to no scarring. This also leads to less swelling and shorter recovery time. Likewise, because laser light and special fluid assists in separating the fat from the skin, the back and forth manual motion by the surgeon is eliminated, thereby leading to less soreness, bruising and swelling.

This is why most patients now choose laser-assisted liposuction over traditional liposuction and in fact, most San Diego body contouring surgeons now only offer this method, as it is safer and more convenient for patients when compared to traditional lipo techniques.

Dr. Reza Tirgari, discusses laser liposuction in this video, addressing the many benefits of this technique and explaining the expected results. He offers Smartlipo, tumescent lipo and laser lipo in two locations: San Diego and Carlsbad, CA.

To learn more, please peruse the pages of this website or contact us today to schedule your laser liposuction consultation. We are here to answer all of your questions, including pre-operative preparations, laser liposuction costs, after care and desired results. Dr. Tirgari has been sculpting bodies of men and women in San Diego for decades and he uses the most up-to-date, state-of-the-art lasers to achieve excellent results. His facilities are approved for on-site procedures and you will not have to be hospitalized during your fat removal treatment. We are here to answer any questions you may have, so please contact us today.

SmartLipo or Tummy Tuck After Pregnancy?

If you have recently given birth, you must have noticed that your belly is simply not the same. In fact, you may even consider a treatment that will help restore the contour of your belly to per-pregnancy shape and look. And while you do your research, you will notice that some women opt for SmartLipo while others get a tummy tuck. This can lead to a dilemma as to which treatment option is best for you. So let us help you shed some light on the matter.

belly skinIf you are in your 30s and you just had your first baby, you are most likely ok with just SmartLipo treatment. That is if you have not been overweight before pregnancy and you have managed to lose most of the baby fat within six months to a year of giving birth. A Smart Lipo treatment in San Diego will benefit you in that it will reduce any excess fat and flatten your belly. It will also do some skin tightening over time.

A tummy tuck, on the other hand, is reserved for those patients who have a moderate to severe amount of lose belly skin after pregnancy. During a tummy tuck, the excess skin is simply removed all together. Tummy tuck required an actual surgery and significant downtime as well as recovery time. The benefits of a tummy tuck can be great, if you are willing to go through the procedure and continue recovery months after the operation.

The best way to learn which treatment is most appropriate for you is to see a cosmetic surgeon who specializes in body contouring. The surgeon will be able to access your unique body contour, your body shape and problem areas. As you know, everyone is different, therefore, everyone will require a different treatment.

So stop over thinking and trying to determine what yo need on your own. Talk to an expert of a few, and then make an educated decision. If you would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Tirgari, we offer office locations in San Diego and Carlsbad. In fact, Dr. Tirgari is recognized as the leading San Diego liposuction surgeon and has successfully treated countless post-pregnancy patients.
