For more than 25 years, Dr. Roger J. Oldham, board certified plastic surgeon, has been performing body contouring procedures. In that time, traditional, full abdominoplasty had been modified to adapt to patient needs. Now, modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck surgery) with Dr. Roger J. Oldham features treatment of excess tissue (fat and skin) in the lower abdomen only, as some bodies need only this type of localized treatment.
Modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck) is a localized procedure which removes excess fat and skin from the lower abdomen. Men and women alike can develop and retain a fatty pocket or “pouch” above the pubic bone around the lower abdomen. Unlike full abdominoplasty, this modified procedure does not require the reforming of the naval but it can include a retightening of the lower abdominal wall so that your post-operative continuation of dieting and exercising will only extend the benefits of surgery. The results are very impressive, as seen in these photographs of patients before and after a modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck) with Dr. Oldham.
