Dr. Roger J. Oldham is board certified by the American Society for Plastic Surgeons. He has been in practice, caring for patients in Washington D.C. and Bethesda, for more than 25 years. Among Dr. Oldham’s many talents is a group of surgeries designed to achieve your desired body contouring, and among them are abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck), and Liposuction. In 2009, liposuction & abdominoplasty were ranked and the 3rd and 5th most common procedures among women, and combined they accounted for more than 280,000 procedures in America alone.
With liposuction, Dr. Oldham is able to accurately and precisely target any area of your body that you feel is carrying excess fat. This may be an area that has been particularly resistant to exercise or dieting, and for many of Dr. Oldham’s patients, that area has been: the hips. Liposuction is perhaps most commonly performed on the abdomen—probably because most women carry excess weight in the abdominal area—but it can effectively be performed on almost any part of the body, and for many women that means hips. Through small incisions, Dr. Oldham is able to access fatty deposits using a special suction-assisted instrument. While sometimes more comprehensive procedures are needed to treat larger areas, patients are often satisfied with the way liposuction allows Dr. Oldham to treat the area precisely and to minimize scarring because the incision sites are so small. Such results are evident in these pictures of patients before and after liposuction surgery with Dr. Oldham.
Are you perhaps still considering which part of the body liposuction would be the most effective in treating? Call Dr. Roger J. Oldham to schedule your personal consultation today and you can discuss the procedure, desired results, and questions regarding cost, benefits, length of surgery, and recovery after liposuction.
