"Dr.Ahmed got skills!! I could not be happier with the results of my tummy tuck and lipo. He gave me back my pre baby body, and then some! I went on 5 consultations prior to him. A few minutes into my consultation with Dr.Ahmed I knew he was the one. He is honest, and didn’t try to sell me up on procedures like other plastic surgeons I saw previously. He listened and answered my questions patiently and explained in great detail what my procedure would be like. No one else took that kind of time. Surgery day was calm and his staff is super friendly and caring. After surgery he was always available to answer my questions and making appointments with his staff was easy and they worked with my crazy schedule every time. Dr.Ahmed has changed my life and I am forever grateful. I recommend him to everyone I know."- P. / Healthgrades / Sep 14, 2020
"Dr. Omar Ahmed is a highly skilled and talented surgeon. He is honest, down to earth, and his bedside manner is excellent. I had a tummy tuck, 360 lipo and a BBL. It was a transformation beyond my expectations. I am extremely happy with the results, and recommended him to anyone and everyone I know who wants cosmetic surgery. I will be returning to him for a breast augmentation in 6 months. Thanks Doc, you changed my life!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Aug 05, 2020
"Dr. Ahmed is extremely kind and very informative. He's considerate and always attentive to my mom's needs and concerns. My mom has had several surgeries and had no complications whatsoever. I appreciate his direct approach and his willingness to answer all my questions. My mom says she always feels safe with him. Highly recommend him and his staff. His assistant Angelina is a delight to work with. We wish you all the best, Robin Appleby and Barbara Curry."- R.A. / Google / Sep 08, 2019
"In February 2018, I tumbled down the stairs of my office building. I sustained a four-inch gash in my head that bled profusely. I was sent to Methodist Hospital in Arcadia. They called Dr Ahmed to stitch up my head. My Blue Shield PPO did not want to pay his bill of $7,000, which I thought was very reasonable, given the very skillful job he did, but they paid the ER Doctor’s $5,000 bill. Dr Ahmed was the only doctor that I saw that day, despite a bad concussion."- J.S. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2019
Ideal Candidates for Liposuction
Fat removal surgery is a good treatment for patients who are at an ideal weight but have pesky areas of fat that cannot be lost with even the most healthy lifestyle. Patients contemplating liposuction should have good skin laxity because liposuction does not address loose or sagging skin. It is also important to realize that liposuction is not a treatment for weight loss. Females undergoing liposuction should be finished with childbearing as this may compromise the results.
How is Liposuction Performed?
Surgical liposuction is performed in an outpatient setting with the patient under general anesthesia. A very small incision is placed in the skin so a cannula can be inserted. The cannula is a tube that helps loosen the fatty tissue that is being removed. After the fat deposits have been suctioned out, Dr. Ahmed will seal the incision. Based on the number of sections treated, your surgery may take 1 – 3 hours. In the separate recovery area, our post-op team will assist you in managing your pain and care for your treated areas until your discharge.
What to Expect After Liposuction
You may need to stay at home for recovery from liposuction surgery for 1 – 3 weeks, depending on the number of areas treated and the size of the treatment area. It's typical to have bruising and swelling for 1 – 2 weeks, and you should have the sutures removed 7 – 10 days after surgery. What is most important after having lipo surgery is to give your body time to rest and recover. To increase your strength, try short walks and light workouts as advised by Dr. Ahmed. Remember, you may see some changes after six weeks, but it will take 6 – 10 months until your new body contour is attained.
