Supplements After Breast Augmentation

It is fine to take weight loss supplements after breast augmentation, but in general, none of these weight loss supplements have been found to have any valid scientific data and have no more than a placebo effect.

Many supplements may be fine to take- but you should check with your surgeon or PMD for this advice.

Prior to using any weight loss supplements and/or diet pills, I recommend consulting your primary care physician to select good quality medications and minimize risks. One month after your breast out patient procedure, you should be able to take physician approved weight-loss supplements.

A healthy diet and low impact exercise should be started after a breast augmentation procedure.  Because of the importance of good nutrition after surgery and its impact on proper wound healing, you should not start any diet that advertises rapid weight loss.

Dieting After Plastic Surgery

Having a healthy life style is an important part of getting the most out of any plastic surgery procedure, including breast augmentation. That sustainable lifestyle should include aerobic and weight bearing exercise and healthy eating habits.  If you need to reduce your weight make sure you are using a method that will have long term success.  A consult with your primary care physician or a dietician might help you to be part of a successful program.  Weight loss supplements may only have a short term benefit.
