In his 25 years of experience in plastic surgery, Dr. Roger J. Oldham has seen many insurance claims denied because some health insurance companies carry very strict guidelines about the kinds of procedures they consider to be “medically necessary” as opposed to cosmetic in nature. But, the one exception to this role is often skin lesion and mole removal. Dr. Oldham has been performing in-office mole removal for years at his practice in Bethesda. Mole removal can save lives, especially when patients are vigilant about watching for changes.
And, mole removal is a preventative procedure that is considered medically necessary by most health insurance companies. Skincare health is something that Dr. Oldham takes very seriously, and he advises patients on the necessity for removal based on medical reasons. However, Dr. Oldham’s added skill in plastic surgery techniques is a wonderful added benefit for patients with moles and lesions on the face, as demonstrated in these photos of patients before and after mole removal with Dr. Oldham.
