There are NO restrictions on what kinds of foods you can or cannot ear after Liposelection / VASER liposuction.

If you are worried about water retention, I would stay away from salty foods (which you should avoid anyway). If you want to avoid putting on weight, adopt a healthy diet low in carbohydrates and fats.

Good Luck.

I do not require patients to be on any specific diet after surgery.  I do recommend eating healthy foods low in fat and salt.  Other than this I have no requirements.

Diet and nutrition after lipo

There is no magic diet after liposuction regardless of technique, but there are some guidelines that apply after surgery of any type. These are not very different from what we should all be doing anyway. The most scientific evidence derives from what is called the Mediterranean Diet, and here are a few highlights:

Favor complex carbohydrates (such as whole grains) over simple carbs (sugar, anything white)

get lots of antioxidants from fresh vegetables, fruits and berries

minimal fat from animal sources, more from olive oil and nuts

protein in every meal but small in amounts
