My stubborn abdomen needs toning, but is there such thing as a mini tummy tuck? Dr. Roger J. Oldham of Bethesda answers

Patients seeking body contouring (abdominoplasty, tummy tuck, and liposuction) may have been dealing with stubborn fatty tissue that is resistant to diet and exercise. Dr. Roger J. Oldham, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Bethesda Maryland, is concerned about the health hazards of excess fat of the abdomen. Dr. Roger J. Oldham’s plastic surgery practice in Bethesda wants you to talk with him about a mini tummy tuck procedure during your personal consultation.

Where a regular abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) requires an initial incision from hip to hip and a small incision around the navel, a modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck) requires a smaller incision along the pubic bone. This incision allows access to the affected areas below the belly button where the abdomen has accumulated excess fatty tissue. Liposuction is used to remove unwanted fat, and skin excess is recontoured and excised to present a more toned lower abdomen for patients of Dr. Roger J. Oldham.

In Bethesda, Maryland Dr. Oldham sees patients from Maryland, DC, and Virginia. Maryland, Chevy Chase, Bethesda, Potomac, Rockville, Silver Spring, Gaithersburg, Northern Virginia, Fairfax, McLean, Reston, Arlington, Annandale, and Washington DC.
