Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a board certified cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon in Bethesda, Maryland. His patients come from many areas surrounding Washington D.C. and seek his expertise for care through cosmetic procedures (breast lift, abdominoplasty, rhinoplasty, etc.) and reconstructive procedures (earlobe repair, skin cancer removal and skin lesion and mole removal). Dr. Oldham’s practice features the Bethesda Surgery Center which accommodates patients for brief, outpatient surgeries like mole removal, skin cancer removal, and other reconstructive procedures.
In 2010, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons noted that tumor removal (skin cancer or mole removal) was by far the most common reconstructive procedure sought by American men and women. Perhaps surprising, this statistic becomes even more interesting when considered next to the most popular cosmetic procedure among women: breast augmentation, which brought in about one quarter of a million patients last year. Dr. Oldham provides in-office mole removal for patients because moles that present on visible areas of the body like the face can be difficult to treat without the skills of a plastic surgeon. Dermatologists often refer their patients to a plastic surgeon who can avoid significant scarring through specialized techniques, as seen in these patients before and after mole removal with Dr. Oldham.
