Dr. Roger J. Oldham specializes in body contouring procedures like liposuction surgery for Bethesda patients. Liposuction, like any plastic surgery procedure, should be performed by a board certified plastic surgeon with decades of experiences, like Dr. Oldham. Dr. Oldham offers his Bethesda-area patients several options for plastic surgery of the body, including abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and liposuction. When patients begin comparing abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and liposuction, Dr. Oldham recommends liposuction surgery for generally healthy patients who prefer a less-invasive method with minimized scarring.
When plastic surgeons describe a surgery as “non-invasive,” or “less invasive,” they mean that the procedure itself requires minimal or no incisions. For example, liposuction of the thigh can be performed by accessing the leg’s fatty tissue through a very small incision site that is about one quarter of an inch. After surgery, that small scar will be even smaller, shrinking as it heals. For some, this seems to good to be true. But, due to its less-invasive nature, liposuction surgery is also limited in its scope. If you think liposuction of your abdomen is needed, contact the plastic surgery office of Dr. Oldham so you can discuss your treatment options during your personal consultation. There he will provide full disclosure about the procedure and you are free to ask questions about the cost/benefit, price, or recovery time after liposuction surgery. As you weigh your options, be sure to visit Dr. Oldham’s website and online photo gallery to see pictures of patients before and after liposuction surgery.
