Pain Pump to aid Recovery: Tummy Tuck with Dr. Roger J. Oldham in Bethesda

Dr. Roger J. Oldham is an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon with decades of care through a respected practice and thousands of satisfied patients after years of excellent care.  Dr. Oldham is well-versed in the most common cosmetic surgery procedures like facelift, neck lift, breast augmentation, liposuction, and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).    He also performs less-invasive skin treatments like Botox, injectable fillers, chemical peel, microdermabrasion, and convenient in-office mole removal. 

Abdominoplasty surgery is one of the most common procedures among American women.  Dr. Oldham suspects this is because of the dramatic results produced through the surgery like these patients before and after tummy tuck/abdominoplasty surgery. Like most abdominal surgery procedures, recovery from abdominoplasty surgery improves after the first few days of discomfort.  Most women find the recovery from abdominoplasty much easier and shorter than C-section or hysterectomy surgery.  One technique that Dr. Oldham uses to ease the recovery from abdominoplasty surgery is the placement of a pain pump for a few days after the surgery.  Two small tubes, smaller than a pencil lead, are placed alongside the muscle tightening sutures  which delivers small amounts of local anesthesia to ease the discomfort of the sutures.  Patients have shared how much better their pain was managed with the use of the pain pump, and in less than one week, the pump was gone and the discomfort fading.
