Mr. Ahmad continually updates his surgical knowledge and is an innovative surgeon. He was first to successfully perform one-stage delayed beast reconstruction with a permanent implant using StratticeTM(developed from porcine skin), achieving excellent cosmetic results. This technique has the advantage of preventing further operations following surgery for breast cancer. He has one of the largest series of therapeutic mammoplasty procedures in the region.
He uses ADM (acellular dermal matrix)/mesh in cosmetic breast surgery. He is one of very few surgeons in cosmetic surgical speciality who have expertise of using this device as internal bra in cosmetic breast surgery. This is very useful technique to prevent capsular contractors, breast ptosis (drop) after breast lift and breast enlargement with moderate to large size implants.
Mr Ahmad has also helped the Mermaid unit in introducing and establishing the OSNA service in Cornwall. This rapid molecular technique prevents a second operation in breast cancer patients by allowing the surgeon to assess axillary nodal status at the time of the first surgery. He is able to perform an axillaryclearance if indicated during the same operation thus preventing a second operation – and saving the patient a longer wait for results.
