Tummy Tuck Reviews
"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 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
"Best Plastic Surgeon!! - I am a new woman because of Dr. Ahmed. He has restored my body back to the way it was prior to my babies. I went in for a tummy tuck and breast augmentation. Felt like I was talking to a friend. He was so honest, easy going , knowledgeable and spent a lot of time explaining my options and different procedures to help me achieve the best result. I was so nervous on pre-op day, but his staff is super friendly and again he calmed my nerves, as he marked me, and in great detail let me know what will be done. Day 1 after surgery despite the swelling and the drains, I could notttttttt believe how incredible my breasts and stomach looked. Day 1 !!!!!! It only got better and better after that!! He is a talented, caring and highly skilled surgeon. I recommend him to anyone who compliments me, and post surgery I get compliments that I hadn’t for years. I am beyond grateful to him for restoring my confidence, bringing new life to my relationship and for the smile I have every day I wake up. Thank youuuu Dr. Ahmed!!!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Mar 28, 2021
"If I could I would thank Dr. Omar every day for how great I look and feel! I had liposuction from him at a different office he worked at and then returned for a tummy tuck and skin removal from my arms. My incisions have healed so nicely and are nearly invisible. The entire process from day one has been a breeze. I would recommend him to anyone who is searching for a Plastic Surgeon. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr.Ahmed!!!!!"- C.E. / Healthgrades / Jun 30, 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.
