    Day 1 – Cool and Soft Foods

    On the first day after a sinus lift surgery, the goal is to reduce the irritation and avoid the heat that could cause discomfort or swelling. This is why cool and soft meals are best for day 1.

    1. Cool Desserts
      Ice cream and frozen yogurt are some perfect treats after sinus lift surgery. They not only soothe the area but also taste delicious. But be careful that you do not consume crunchy or hard mix-ins like nuts, candy etc.
    2. Smoothies and Milkshakes
      Smoothies and milkshakes are also great for getting nutrients. Try to have them with a spoon instead of a straw, as the suction from straws might trigger the healing process. You can also blend fruits like bananas and berries with yogurt or milk for a healthy snack.
    3. Yogurt and Pudding
      Yogurt and pudding are also mild on the surgery site. However, consuming them chilled or at room temperature is best to prevent irritation.

    Days 2 - 31 – Soft, Room Temperature Foods

    You may slowly start adding more variety to your diet as you heal. Just remember to stick with soft, non-spicy food items that are easy to chew and easy to swallow.

    1. Pasta and Noodles
      Eating spaghetti or macaroni might be a good option to eat after sinus lift surgery. However, try to prepare a light, non-spicy kind of sauce for your pasta or noodles, avoiding strong spices and hot peppers. The goal is to keep the texture of the food soft and smooth so it doesn’t strain your tongue or gums.
    2. Eggs, Pancakes, and French Toast
      Scrambled eggs are soft and very easy to digest, so yes, they are a great food option to eat after a sinus lift surgery. Other breakfast items like soft pancakes and French toast can also be consumed as long as they aren’t too crispy or hard to chew.
    3. Rice and Beans
      Rice is a simple and versatile food. Try mixing it with soft beans like red or black beans for a full meal. Just make sure your rice is cooked until it’s nice and soft so it’s easy to eat.
