In Bethesda, Maryland there is a board certified plastic surgeon with decades of experience in cosmetic and reconstructive surgical procedures and treatments. Dr. Roger J. Oldham cares for patients out of his Bethesda, Maryland plastic surgery practice where he consults patients on many cosmetic procedures such as breast augmentation, facelift, and even body contouringprocedures like liposuction and abdominoplasty. Dr. Oldham’s experience in plastic surgery allows him to see how advances in surgical techniques help serve patient needs. Modified abdominoplasty is one of those advancements—it is a contemporary twist on the full abdominoplasty procedure because it treats only the lower abdomen.
Modified abdominoplasty with Dr. Roger J. Oldham is an ideal procedure because it can really target the specific region of the lower abdomen (below the naval) and the length of the surgery itself is much shorter than traditional full abdominoplasty. This can mean that recovery time is also shorter. While each patient is different, Dr. Oldham has found that most patients feel comfortable to return to work after a week. To accommodate patients’ schedules, Dr. Oldham performs surgeries on Fridays so that two full weekends and only one full work week may be used for recovery. Patients find this very convenient as it also allows family and friends to care for them and visit frequently on the weekends. During this short period of recovery, patients can already begin to see the dramatic results from modified abdominoplasty, including these patients of Dr. Oldham’s before and after mini tummy tuck surgery.
Contact Dr. Oldham by calling our Bethesda practice to schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Oldham. Dr. Oldham always meets with patients personally for each appointment before and after the procedure. Feel free to inquire about other aspects of the procedure and request a mini tummy tuck price estimate.
