With more than 25 years of experience as Bethesda’s “Best” board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a leading surgeon for breast surgery including breast reduction, breast lift, and breast augmentation. For almost three decades, Dr. Oldham has been providing relief for Bethesda area patients who suffer from enlarged breasts and the physical and emotional burden they bear on a daily basis. As a specialist in breast surgery, Dr. Oldham performs Breast reduction surgery for women over the age of 15. Breast reduction surgery is infrequently included in healthcare benefits and so is rarely covered by health insurance providers. Despite this fact, breast reduction surgery is affordable and Dr. Oldham has been repeatedly listed in Checkbook Magazine for his economical surgical fees.
Breast reduction surgery lasts about 2 ½ to 3 hours, during which Dr. Oldham makes a careful incision around the areola, down the breast, and under the breast tissue, creating a “keyhole” opening which allows him to access excess breast tissue for removal. This method also allows an unprecedented amount of control, allowing as much or as little of the breast tissue and surrounding skin to be removed. To close, Dr. Oldham sutures with dissolving sutures along the incision sites that are now draping nicely atop a reshaped breast. As an added benefit, because enlarged breasts sometimes stretch the areola, breast reduction surgery can resize, reshape, or reposition the areola per your specific request. These patients look very different before and after breast reduction surgery with Dr. Oldham!
