In his 25 years of plastic surgery practice, Dr. Roger J. Oldham has performed countless body contouringprocedures for patients who simply cannot target fat burning exercise as specifically as they would like. Through procedures like abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), liposuction, and modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck surgery) with Dr. Roger J. Oldham, patients are able to achieve the sleek, toned abdomen they desire.
Modified abdominoplasty is performed similarly to full abdominoplasty, save for one key difference: full abdominoplasty treats both the upper and lower abdomen (from the sternum to the pubic bone) whereas modified abdominoplasty treats only the lower abdomen (from the naval to the pubic bone). Both are performed via an incision across the lower abdomen. Scarring is minimized through special plastic surgery suturing techniques and by placing the incision in a natural curve of the body, easily hidden by undergarments and bathing suits, as seen in Dr. Oldham’s patients before and after a modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck).
