Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a board certified plastic surgeon. He began practicing in the D.C./Bethesda areas more than 25 years ago, and has since built an admirable reputation and repertoire of satisfied, loyal patients. As a cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Oldham performs both procedures like breast lift, mini tummy tuck, facelift, and blepharoplasty, as well as less-invasive skincare treatments like Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse, and preventative procedures like skin lesion and mole removal. As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Oldham often receives patient referrals from colleagues. Patients presenting moles and lesions on more visible areas of the body—areas that might display scars—seek the skills of a plastic surgeon to minimized mole removal scars.
With a number of skin lesion removal techniques available to him, Dr. Oldham is able to assess a particular skin lesion and determine which method of treatment would produce the best results. Of primary importance is the complete removal of the lesion, especially if it appears pre-cancerous or malignant. Additionally important, however, is the post-operative appearance of the skin. Scarring can be difficult to avoid, but plastic surgeons like Dr. Oldham are particularly skilled as minimizing the chance of scars. If you visit our photo gallery, you will see two patients before and after mole removal with Dr. Oldham. Note that one of the skin lesions was removed using excision which involves an incision. The other, however, was removed using a shaving technique. Larger lesions often achieve good results with this technique.
After your initial mole removal consultation with Dr. Oldham, we can schedule you for a convenient and brief in-office procedure.
