Today, plastic surgeons are known for so much more than cosmetic surgeries like breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, liposuction and tummy tucks. Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a board certified cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon practiced in Bethesda for more than 25 years. Because Dr. Oldham also specializes in reconstructive plastic surgery, he offers patients non-invasive aesthetic and medical treatments like earlobe repair, photocoagulation of facial capillaries (blood vessels), fat injections, MOHS repair, and skin lesion and mole removal. In his Bethesda office—near Montgomery Mall and the I-270/I-495 spur—Dr. Oldham hosts the Bethesda Surgery Center, offering patients the care and convenience of in-office mole removal.
Skin cancer can be prevented; this we have learned from medical organizations like the American Cancer Society and from loving voices like our mothers who remind us to always wear sunscreen while in the sun and to reapply it often! Medical practitioners like Dr. Oldham have been happy to see the ways in which skincare health and skin cancer prevention have become as routine as wearing a jacket when it’s cold out. But, genetic factors as well as a sun-filled youth can catch up to us. When our moles and skin lesions begin to show change, there’s one sure-fire thing we can do: get those moles removed. Dermatologists provide this service but sometimes refer patients to Dr. Oldham when moles present in visible areas of the body, especially the face where patients want the smallest post-procedural scarring. Dr. Oldham’s skill in mole removal is particularly trained to minimize scarring, as seen in these pictures before and after mole removal with Dr. Oldham.
In just two visits to our conveniently-located Bethesda office, you can rest easy knowing you did the right thing to prevent skin cancer before it starts, before moles and skin lesions evolve into malignant cancers.
