to increase survival rate of fat and minimize scarring? Like I've heard that high protien diet post operatively for any surgery promotes wound healing. Also it is a good idea to increase fiber to combat constipation from pain meds, and restore normal bowel activity.
Other Than Taking Vitamins is There a Diet or Nutrition Plan That Should Be Followed After BBL?

Post BBL regimen
Avoid high-salt intake to avoid making swelling worse. Also, avoid megadoses of Vit. C. that could actually lead to worse scarring. Fiber helps combat the constipation from the pain meds, but most of patients take colace (it over the counter) twice a day with their meds.
Hope this helps,
