LipotuckTM – Going Beyond Tummy Tuck and Liposuction, Houston
In one procedure we can remove excess skin, tighten abdominal muscles, contour your upper abdomen, and reduce those waist and bra rolls.
We are of the humble opinion that Lipotuck™ (tummy tuck + liposuction) is the gold standard in body contouring not only in Houston, TX. and around the world; anything else is just an approximation. Lipotuck™ differs from the traditional tummy tuck in that it also incorporates significant liposuction to the abdomen, hips, love handles, and commonly the thighs.
Lipotuck™ (tummy tuck + liposuction) is a one-stage procedure that creates an extremely pleasing abdominal contour and waist line. The results are simply remarkable and unmatched. We encourage you to compare our before and after photos with those of other surgeons. You simply cannot afford not to.
Tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a common term for the surgical procedure to correct a protruding or loose, sagging abdomen. Tummy tuck involves removing excess skin from the lower abdomen. Additionally, muscles that have weakened or separated, a condition called diastasis, is also corrected at the same time during a tummy tuck. The loosening of muscle most commonly occurs from child birth. Lipotuck™ includes all tummy tuck benefits plus much more!
Why do Houstonians choose Lipotuck™ over tummy tuck or liposuction?
A traditional tummy tuck fails to address the upper abdomen, hips, and love handles. Frequently, patients undergoing just the tummy tuck have residual upper abdomen, pubic, and bra bulges. These patients lack waist line curves and often seek liposuction later to correct what should have been addressed the first time around. By perfectly combining tummy tuck and liposuction, Lipotuck™ offers a one-stage solution in body contouring.
Can I just get liposuction?
That depends on whether your abdominal skin is hanging. If there is any loose skin, liposuction makes the condition worse. Skin laxity usually results from rapid or severe weight loss (commonly seen after weight loss procedures such Lap Band or gastric bypass), or stretch marks (frequently seen after pregnancy). During your consultation, Dr. Ahmadi will be able to tell you if liposuction is all you need.
Is the recovery from Lipotuck™ longer than a tummy tuck?
No, the recovery is no longer than a regular tummy tuck. However, most patients report that they get back to their lives faster than their friends who have had a tummy tuck elsewhere. This is because of our carefully planned and aggressive recovery protocol. Usually, patients can drive a week or two after their surgery and go back to a desk job a few days afterwards with lifting precautions. Of course, everyone heals differently.

Dr. Ahmadi, Tummy Tuck, Liposuction, Lipotuck Reviews *
“I had seen other plastic surgeons in the past and had such terrible experiences that I never scheduled a surgery. My first visit with Dr. Ahmadi I knew I had finally picked the right surgeon. He and his entire staff are amazing. They make you feel like a person and take the time to address any and every concern you may have. I would recommend him to everyone of my closest family and friends.”
