Lettuce and legumes are acceptable after laser liposuction procedures. I perform these in my practice and have found the results well worth it for liposuction. Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles

Lettuce is safe after laser lipo

Lettuce is safe to have after a laser lipo procedure.  Proper nutrition and exercise are important to ensure best results.  I recommend a consultation with a registered dietitian and personal trainer to optimize diet and exercise habits.
Good luck!

Yes to lettuce after laser lipo

Lettuce may give people a problem after some surgeries like gall bladder removal and gastric bypass.  However, lettuce should be no problem after laser liposuction.
