What is a Tummy Tuck?
For both men and women, hanging skin and excess fat surrounding the abdominal region can be frustrating despite efforts to reduce it.

This cosmetic treatment at Omar Ahmed, M.D. allows individuals the chance to have a new youthful shape and increased confidence. We invite you to contact us to schedule your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Ahmed.
Tummy Tuck Reviews
"I had my surgery with Dr. Ahmed 1 month ago. I could’ve written this review a day after I was so happy with what he did! I had a tummy tuck and lipo on my neck/arms and thighs. I haven’t worked out a day yet and I look so toned. My tummy isn’t flat it’s concave! ! It wasn’t even like this when I was an athlete in my teens! I have been singing Dr. Ahmed’s praises to everyone! "- A. / Healthgrades / Aug 24, 2021
"Highly recommend!!! From consultation to surgery day and now 3 months post op, I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Ahmed and his staff at his Pasadena office. My procedures included a breast reduction/lift and tummy tuck! Wow! Wow! Wow is everyone’s reaction to me and that is my own reaction to my reflection in the mirror. You can trust that Dr. Ahmed will do good by you and you will get the results you want. I spoke to a few patients in the waiting room and they all felt how I did! Thank you Dr. Ahmed!"- M.B. / Google / Nov 30, 2021
"Dr. Ahmed is someone I cannot say enough nice things about or extend enough gratitude . I had a breast lift and lipo and my shape and breasts exceed my expectations! I went to Sonobello and he and his nurse agreed that a mini tummy tuck would not give me the results I wanted. I wanted a flat stomach and small perky breasts. I came to Dr. Ahmed’s private practice In Pasadena and his staff is incredibly caring. The first time I took off my faja it looked like a miracle/magic had been performed! It was shocking!! I am 6 wks out and all I can say is don’t wait if you are considering this procedure. I cannot imagine a surgeon being more competent or talented than Dr. Ahmed! He will follow through on his promises."- J.F. / Google / Nov 22, 2021

Ideal Candidates for Tummy Tuck
Tummy tuck surgery can be successful for both women and men. If you have loose or wrinkly skin, as well as excess fat in the lower abdomen, this body contouring procedure can help create a slimming and more toned physique. Dr. Ahmed suggests you be at a stable weight prior to surgery. Abdominoplasty is not a substitute for weight loss — it removes loose skin. A form of liposuction is often incorporated during the procedure to eliminate fat. Women considering this treatment should be past pregnancy so that the results are not compromised.
How We Perform a Tummy Tuck
Body contouring of the abdomen is performed with general anesthesia. There are various techniques to consider when this surgery is performed by Dr. Ahmed. To start, the incision shape and size are chosen based upon the quantity of excess skin. Some individuals with an abundance of hanging skin might benefit best from a full tummy tuck. This method places the incision from hip bone to hip bone, just above the pubic area. Other patients who are concerned with minimal skin wrinkling may be better candidates for a smaller incision. These individuals still benefit from skin tightening but will simply have a less expansive scar. Regardless of the type, all abdominoplasty procedures at Omar Ahmed, M.D. involve the excision of sagging skin and liposuction.
Follow-up After Tummy Tuck
After your tummy tuck surgery, you will be carefully examined and sent home wearing a compression garment to help control swelling. Standing upright and walking will be a bit painful at first so you should take it easy for several days. You should be able to resume a normal routine somewhere around two weeks. You can exercise again around the two-month mark or when you are cleared by Dr. Ahmed. The stomach will feel sore and tight, but you will look and feel normal again after recovering.
