When you’re considering a surgical procedure, you have to be aware that you’re about to put your body through a significant level of stress and trauma.

Of course, much of that trauma is caused by the surgical incision itself. Thankfully, compared to an accidental injury, surgical incisions are clean, which already gives your body a healing advantage. That’s why most cosmetic procedures generally have a low risk of complications when performed by an experienced plastic surgeon.

H2 – Pre-surgery diet: What you should eat and foods to avoid

“The first step every person needs to take is to avoid processed foods, especially carbohydrates like bread, rice and cereal, as these are known to promote inflammation.”

Essentially, the best foods to eat before surgery are fresh, natural products. “Focus on eating real foods — foods that are God’s creation, not man-made,” advises Grossman. “Cooking from scratch will prepare your body and is the key to success. Anything else that comes from a box, can, or container should be avoided.”

To kickstart your day, both Mani and Grossman suggest that you consume a burst of berries such as strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. These contain potent levels of antioxidants and nutrients that are readily absorbed by the body to help support it in many of its functions.

Throughout the day, you should minimize carbohydrates (bread, rice, pasta, potatoes), and instead rely on an abundance of non-starchy vegetables as your predominant source of carbs.
