After undergoing a BBL with fat transfer, do most MD's suggest a specific "diet"?

Post operative diet
There is no specific diet that is mandatory however it would be best to attempt a low sodium diet. As you heal you will be dealing with significant swelling. Sodium (salt) retains fluid so this can make your swelling worse during this time.

Nutritional requirements for your BBL recovery
I'm not aware of any nutritional requirements that are specific to the BBL recovery, but if we broaden the discussion to something more general like 'post-surgical nutritional requirements', then I would make two recommendations that can be incorporated in to any version of healthy, balanced diet:1) a higher than normal protein intake has been shown to facilitate post-op healing and to reduce the rate of wound healing complications. You might consider using a protein supplement for a few weeks on either side of your procedure. 2) a generous portion of vegetables and greens provides important enzymes that facilitate the healing process.
