Abdominoplasty Alternatives in Maryland with Dr. Roger J. Oldham, Bethesda’s “Best Plastic Surgeon”

For more than 25 years, Dr. Roger J. Oldham, board certified plastic surgeon, has been offering body contouring plastic surgery procedures.  Included in body contouring is abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and liposuction of the abdomen, thighs, flanks (sides), and hips.  But Dr. Oldham also offers Bethesda patients a full abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) alternative called modified abdominoplasty or mini tummy tuck.  Less invasive than its full counterpart, modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck) is an ideal option for patients whose lower abdomen specifically carries more excess tissue than the upper abdomen.

Modified abdominoplasty surgery with Dr. Roger J. Oldham involves the removal of excess fatty tissue and skin from the lower abdomen, isolating the affected area to that which lies below the naval.  Ideal for both men and women, mini tummy tuck surgery is less invasive than full abdominoplasty because it does not require the naval itself to be moved.  Rather, with modified abdominoplasty, Dr. Oldham makes a similar incision line is made along the pubic bone—where it is easily hidden under your underwear or bikini bottom—and skin is carefully removed, allowing access to excess fat which can then be removed with liposuction techniques.  Dr. Oldham can then re-tighten the abdominal muscles of the lower abdomen which may have begun to hang loosely due to pregnancy or other factors that cause the muscles to lose support.  If you are unsure about whether abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) or modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck) is the right option for you, visit our photo gallery to see pictures before and after tummy tuck/abdominoplasty surgery and pictures before and after mini tummy tuck/modified abdominoplasty with Dr. Roger J.
