BBL is the injection of fat taken from different parts of the body by liposuction into the buttocks. Thus, the related region is shaped. For the results to be as desired after the operation, it is necessary to ensure that the fats are permanent. A healthy diet is of great importance here. After BBL, you need to have a healthy diet to feed the fat. We have listed for you the best foods and foods to avoid.

What to Eat & What to Avoid Before BBL Surgery?

Unless you have a special diet, it is very unlikely that you get the vitamins, nutrients, and minerals your body requires during and after the surgery. Your body needs more nutrients during the recovery period after the operation.

Proteins are needed for collagen and new blood cell production. Besides, a healthy nervous system and an immune system are also extremely important. After the operation, men should take 1.5 grams of protein per kilogram of weight, and women should take 1.2 grams of protein per kilogram of weight. In this way, you can calculate the daily minimum amount of protein.

The most effective and healthy sources for the proteins your body needs are eggs, low-fat fish, vegetable protein sources such as quinoa, and lean organic meats.

Salt and sugar consumption should be reduced before surgery. Carbohydrate-rich foods or refined sugars can adversely affect the function of the immune system and cause inflammation. You should stop consuming foods that will prevent immune system functions, anesthesia, blood clotting, and healing about a week before the operation.

B, A, D, E, C, and K vitamins, especially omega 3c, and some herbal supplements can increase bleeding duration. Besides, ginger, garlic, potatoes, tomatoes, flax seeds, and green tea can also affect the clotting duration and anesthesia. It would be better to avoid them as much as possible before the surgery and during the recovery period. Caffeine and alcohol are neurotoxins and should also be avoided.

What to Eat after BBL?

Consuming the right food after the BBL will not only affect the feeding of fats positively but will also shorten the recovery period. Therefore, the effect of every food consumed is more than is thought. Considering this, it is essential to go for healthy foods.

To eliminate this, you should make sure to consume as much water as your body needs. Adequate water consumption also significantly reduces the risk of adverse situations such as fat embolism and blood clotting.

Magnesium helps reduce inflammation. Although various food supplements will allow you to take as much magnesium as your doctor recommends, different foods will allow you to get this mineral naturally. Food recommended to be consumed after BBL is:

  • Swiss cheese
  • Dark chocolate
  • Milk
  • Banana
  • Avocado
  • Salmon
  • Egg yolk
  • Sardines
  • Potato (With jacket)
  • Black and/or small reddish beans
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Cashews and pistachios
  • Spinach
  • Strengthened cereals

Although marinated sauces and spices make food more delicious, you should prefer light foods as much as possible during this period. Thus, your digestive system can function more smoothly. When your digestive system relaxes and rests, this allows your body to use more energy for recovery. You should take small bites and swallow them after chewing well.

Please prefer foods that are easy to digest. Soups, yogurt, applesauce, toast, bananas, plain bagels, and watermelon are such foods.

These should be avoided to get through the recovery period smoothly. Foods to avoid are:
  • Processed meats such as pastrami and sausage
  • Refined grains such as white bread, pasta, rice, and crackers
  • Fried food
  • Cooked food
  • Fizzy Drinks
  • Sweet cereals
  • Sugar
  • Fast Food

How to Feed the Fat after BBL?

Feeding the fat after BBL is quite important for the results of the surgery to be permanent. In a scientific article called The Science of Fatty Acids and Inflammation, it is stated that consuming high-fat foods affects some metabolic processes associated with metabolic syndrome. This situation means the accumulation of fat in the abdominal area. Besides, since visceral fat is a type of fat that cannot be removed by liposuction, it would be better to stay away from such foods.

In a healthy diet, fats are very important. However, it should not be forgotten that they should be carefully selected from healthy fats.

Some high-fat foods may be more effective than others in terms of inflammation. The data obtained from scientific research states that the inflammatory state should be considered as one of the features that can be assessed according to the effects of fats on human health.

The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish are part of a healthy diet associated with lower inflammation levels. If your doctor has not prescribed fish oil, it is beneficial to include foods containing omega-3 fatty acids in your diet.

There are different types of omega-3 fatty acids. You can consume salmon, anchovies, and tuna to get this fat. Nuts, flaxseed, and some plants also contain omega 3. Consuming them regularly will help you to feed the fat after BBL.
