Post surgery, your diet should be highly nutritious in the form of a good protein intake. You can have your carbs and your healthy fats. However, you do want to have a very, very low sodium diet. And you also need to be on some type of fiber supplement or laxatives because the pain medications will frequently constipate the person, especially after a tummy tuck, which then just produces more discomfort and distress to the person. So the post operative care, including a laxative, is very important.

Don't Forget to Take THIS Supplement Following Your Surgery
