Tummy Tuck Surgery: Risks, Benefits, Cost, and Recovery Time…a Bethesda Plastic Surgeon shares his 25+ years of experience

Abdominoplasty (also known as a tummy tuck) is a body contouring procedure that continues to be increasingly popular among women. Dr. Roger J. Oldham, a well known Bethesda plastic surgeon, has many years of experience performing abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery). Dr. Oldham is a board-certified plastic surgeon and an attending surgeon at Sibley Hospital in Washington, D.C., Shady Grove Adventist Hospital in Rockville, Maryland, and Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland where he has performed tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) for both men and women in the Washington metropolitan area.

In a recent poll by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, experts report that abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery) is the 5th most popular procedure among women. In 2008 alone more than 100,000 women opted for toned abdomens and the relinquishment of unhealthy excess fat. Statistics like these may lead some who are considering abdominoplasty to believe that the decision to get plastic surgery isn’t a difficult one. Patients can spend months weighing the benefits and risks, comparing prices to find the best cost, and looking at before and after pictures of patients with a similar body shape to their own. Among these, selecting your surgeon can be one of the most difficult decisions. Dr. Oldham understands your struggle to make such a major decision, which is why he insists on spending at least two, thirty minutes consultation visits with each cosmetic patient before proceeding with surgery, listening to their desire for personal satisfaction and increased self-esteem with elective plastic surgery, whether it be abdominoplasty/tummy tuck surgery or other cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery options.

Dr. Roger J. Oldham has been serving residents of Bethesda, Rockville, Potomac, Chevy Chase, and Gaithersburg, Maryland for more than two decades. He also serves the larger Washington D.C. community through his work with patients in Northern Virginia: Reston, Fairfax, Great Falls, McLean, Alexandria, and Arlington.
