According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2009, nearly 4 million procedures were performed by reconstructive plastic surgeons to remove tumors. Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon in Bethesda, Maryland which counts him among these surgeons who care for patients by performing proactive skin lesion removal, and who save lives by removing skin cancer or assisting other physicians with procedures like MOHS closure. Dr. Oldham’s Bethesda practice offers in-office mole removal to patients who are concerned about their skin’s health. With Dr. Oldham, patients receive safe, effective excision of skin lesions (like moles, or skin cancer) with the benefit of minimized scarring.
There are a wide variety of ways to treat skin lesions, but, depending on the nature of he lesion, often the most effective treatment is surgical excision. With excision, Dr. Oldham is able to access the lesion and ensure complete removal of the growth. In addition, all specimens are sent for pathological testing to ensure yet again that the growth has been entirely removed, leaving patients worry-free. One of the benefits of mole removal with a plastic surgeon like Dr. Oldham is the years of experience working with delicate skin and advanced suture techniques and work to reduce post-operative scars, leaving no sign of the lesion, or the procedure that removed it. Shaving is another technique that works well for larger lesions, as seen in one of these patients before and after mole removal with Dr. Oldham.
