Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a plastic surgeon with 25+ years of experience, and he is board certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a prestigious national organization that works to maintain the professionalism and excellence of care that plastic surgeons like Dr. Oldham provide to patients in Bethesda, Washington D.C., and every other area of the country. One service that plastic surgeons like Dr. Oldham provide is skin lesion and mole removal. Skin lesions can be categorized into many types including moles, skin tags, warts, etc. And, skin lesions can range from benign to pre-cancerous, to cancerous. That’s why it’s so important to be vigilant and explore the convenience of in-office mole removal with plastic surgeons like Dr. Oldham.
Dr. Oldham’s years of experience include not only cosmetic and reconstructive procedures (like breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, tummy tuck, earlobe repair, MOHS closure, and more) but also involve skincare health treatments like mole removal which are designed to provide often preventative care combined with the skills of a plastic surgeon. With his Bethesda practice host to the Bethesda Surgery Center, Dr. Oldham is able to perform these small outpatient procedures right in the office, as he did for these patients pictured before and after mole removal with Dr. Oldham. Typically, the most common surgery time length is between 30 and 45 minutes from the moment you walk in the door, to the moment you walk out. And, since skin lesion removal and skincare vigilance is proven to reduce your chance of developing skin cancer, especially in late stages, most health insurance companies will deem such procedures medically necessary and provide some level of benefits.
