Tariq is one of the most incredible people I’ve met. I came to him with concerns in 2015 about how unhappy my nose made me Physically and mentally and from the first appointment he said he could help me and he completely did. He was very confident and assured me that he could help me when I had been turned down by another surgeon as the procedure would be too complicated. Dr Ahmed is very professional friendly and talented. I fully recommend him and he has changed my life.
Rhinoplasty operation & revision with Dr Ahmad. Cannot fault his technical eye/ attention to detail. He sets realistic expectations and is clearly a very highly skilled surgeon. The revision addressed some subtle issues, which has left me extremely pleased with the results.
He was very comforting and friendly whilst remaining professional at all times. I trusted him completely and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
As a surgeon - excellent. But a little awkward during consultation.
Mr Ahmad really knows his profession. At all times I felt in very capable hands, from the initial consultation, through to the procedures and after care.
Friendly and funny, but extremely professional and experienced. Immediately felt confident and comfortable with his work and therefore to work with him. Very attentive but also able to give great advice where I was unsure.
Perfectionist, thorough and due this provides excellent results! Follows up any niggles you have with attention.
Very professional. Thorough with procedure carried out. I am very happy with the procedure.
Very professional but at the same time explains things in layman’s terms especially his drawings.
Mr Ahmad has worked wonders. He talks you through the procedure and makes sure you understand everything that will occur. Explained what to expect post op and sympathetic to individual needs.
The medical information was given in a very clear and understandable manner. He was extremely patient providing a good manner in all his responses.
Always very reassuring and able to put me at ease

Second meeting with this consultant. Very friendly and information given relevant.
No words to describe Dr Ahmed other than amazing!! I have had many treatments with him.
Friendly, answered all my questions with patience. Very talented
Procedure very well explained. Reception perfect. Post operation care seems easy to follow. No pain. Excited to see outcome in a few days/weeks. Will recommend. Thank you.
We are so impressed with Mr. Ahmed’s level of knowledge and his ability to communicate what is needed. He made us feel so comfortable with what would be otherwise a potentially daunting experience.
My consultation with Mr Tariq Ahmad went down extremely well and I’m confident he will give me the nose I’ve been longing to get. Thank you, Mr Tariq Ahmad. I look forward to absorbing all the information from you in the weeks ahead. 😊
Very welcoming in reception. Meeting with Mr Ahmad was very informative and all areas regarding different treatments, suitability, risks, recovery and results were explained clearly.Very pleased with the meeting.
It's always a big step to have surgery, or at least it should be. I thought long and hard about my procedure and discussed it on a number of occasions with Mr Ahmad who was more than happy to take as much time as I wanted. I had my own, what I hoped were realistic expectations, of what he might achieve but I have to say that he far exceeded what I had hoped for. I am delighted with the result and wish I'd done it sooner.
Mr Tariq Ahmad performed a tangential shave excision of a mole just below my right nostril. He was extremely thorough in our consultation prior to my treatment and all my questions were answered. I would like to thank Mr Ahmad and his team and the advice he discussed with me regarding postoperative care of the wound.
Excellent and pleasant experience with my first consultation. Mr Ahmad provided very clear information. I felt welcomed and I am confident I will be able to take informed decisions. Andrea
I found Mr Ahmad very easy to talk to regarding my condition. He explained the different treatment options at the initial consultation and we discussed these in detail and decided on a course of action to take. Treatment was carried out very well with any questions answered fully. Mr Ahmed and the staff at CCB were all very pleasant and professional.
Very helpful and informative
Very informative and comfortable with all dialogue between the surgeon and patient
I was made to feel very comfortable from the beginning. Mr Ahmad listened well and understood what I wanted to achieve. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I was particularly nervous but the whole team were very understanding and reassuring.
Very simple, straightforward process as at patient. All questions and concerns addressed.
Mr. Ahmad has been wonderful through every treatment I’ve had. He has an excellent bedside manner and made me feel comfortable the entire time. He is extremely thorough and explains the procedure so you will have realistic expectation of what to expect from your treatment. I live stateside and I fly back to Cambridge just to have Mr. Ahmad work on me. He is a surgeon I definitely trust.
Very good service, very friendly practice, answered all questions honestly and thoroughly. Feel very confident with Dr Ahmed
It took me over ten years to actually make an appointment, I had researched many alternatives and finally decided to choose Dr Ahmad on the basis of his awards, his qualifications and reviews. I was not disappointed and feel very confident in his expert level of skill in this area. He communicates clearly, with sensitivity and humour and he and all his staff are a real pleasure to deal with. The results so far have increased my confidence in trying new procedures and I will continue to return!
Very good thorough consultation with Mr Tariq Ahmad, I came back to see Mr Ahmad as have had previous procedures in the past.
Fantastic , didn't feel a thing !! Great experience!! Mr Ahmad was very pleasant person . Would highly recommend him .
Dr Ahmad has really looked after me since the first consultation ,helping me make a decision on size and shape of implant to the surgery and I'm happy with the outcome so far. Im 12 days post op.
Overall a really positive experience. Mr Ahmad was very kind and understanding from the initial consultation, during surgery and during all post-op care. His team were on hand to answer any questions I had before and after surgery. I am very happy with the results of my surgery and would recommend Mr Ahmad and his team to anyone thinking of having surgery.
Felt very comfortable. Very informative consultation.
Very pleasant and great care by the staff.
For some time I had a large Ganglion on my left wrist; Mr Tariq Ahmad surgically removed it. The procedure was carried out at his aesthetic clinic, which is conveniently situated just a two-minute walk from the Shelford Railway Station and gives easy access from the London Liverpool Street Station to Cambridge. This Ganglion was causing numbness and loss of feeling in the thumb and joint below the thumb. This Ganglion was very deep and took time to be removed, but the operation was a complete success and the thumb returned to normal very soon after the operation. Subsequently a second visit was made to the clinic for a smaller unconnected Ganglion to be removed from the thumb knuckle joint; this was done by aspiration; this small Ganglion has not returned.
