For more than 25 years, Dr. Roger J. Oldham, board certified plastic surgeon, has provided the convenience and care of mole removal with a plastic surgeon. Dr. Oldham specializes in skin lesion and mole removal, providing minimized scarring for patients with lesions, moles, and cases of skin cancer that happen to occur in visible places on the body. As a cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon, Dr. Oldham offers a wide range of invasive and non-invasive surgery procedures and skin enhancement treatments: liposuction, laser hair removal, rhinoplasty, Botox, abdominoplasty, skin lesion removal, breast augmentation, microdermabrasion, and many more. Additionally, Dr. Oldham’s Bethesda office has the Bethesda Surgery Center where Dr. Oldham provides patients the convenience of in-office mole, skin lesion, and skin cancer removal. But, Dr. Oldham also provides patients valuable advice about watching moles as they are apt to change as we age.
The American Cancer Society has created an acronym that makes paying attention to our body’s moles and skin lesions incredibly easy. To help Americans remember to think about their moles, the ACS provides their “ABCs.” Dr. Oldham often reminds patients to remain privy to changes in: asymmetry because only benign moles are symmetrical; borders, because healthy moles and lesions have well-defined borders; color, as moles should be a solid color and variation is a clue that change is happening; diameter because size does matter when it comes to moles and most are no bigger than a pencil eraser in diameter; and finally any evolutions that occur quickly over time. When these signs do present, don’t hesitate to call Dr. Roger J. Oldham to schedule your personal consultation today. The benefits of the careful hand of a plastic surgeon are evident in these photos of patients before and after mole removal with Dr. Oldham.
