Post Cosmetic Surgery Recovery Phase & Nutrition

There is a lot of information online about how to deal with the recovery phase after plastic surgery. You will find articles on sleeping, exercise, and rest periods. But there isn’t a great deal on nutrition and what to eat to improve recovery time. If you are curious about post-surgery nutrition, continue to read below for more information on the subject.

Avoid Junk Food

If you have had open nose surgery (known as เสริมจมูกแบบโอเพ่นราคา in Thai) or breast augmentation, you will be feeling tired, tender, and uncomfortable after the procedure. When we feel this way, we tend to opt for comfort food which usually involves the consumption of junk food. These foods are easy to prepare and they taste good. But junk food is something you should avoid post-surgery as it contains zero vitamins and minerals which are essential for healing. You will slow your recovery phase if you consume unhealthy food.

What to Eat?

If you are an active person, you will understand the benefits of eating a healthy diet when you exercise. Many people make the mistake of lowering their food intake because they are not as active as before. However, this is wrong as your body needs the right amount of food to recover. Your body is repairing damaged cells during the recovery phase, thus needs a balanced diet to meet the demand.

This doesn’t mean you should eat sugary food or processed food. Instead, your body requires a balanced diet consisting of all these elements:

  • Low GI foods (Slow Releasing Carbs)
  • Protein & Fatty Acids
  • Vitamins & Minerals
  • Water

You need to eat more than normal and not reduce your consumption just because you are inactive.

Eating During Recovery

If you are going for surgery, it is best to pre-plan your meals and have them pre-packed when you get home. This way you don’t have to worry about cooking as everything is available to eat. If you forget to pre-plan meals, you can order healthy food from a local business who deliver to your home. If you have had rhinoplasty surgery, you should consider shakes and other soft foods.

Nutrition is a vital part of your recovery phase and it shouldn’t be overlooked. To make your recovery easier, try stocking pre-made meals in your home to avoid the need for cooking. If you don’t have the time, you can make use of healthy meal delivery services. A healthy diet promotes a speedy recovery.
