Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a board certified plastic surgeon through the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He is also an active member in the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and has been an active medical practitioner in the Washington D.C. community for more than 25 years. Out of his Bethesda, Maryland plastic surgery practice, Dr. Oldham sees patients for a number of cosmetic and reconstructive medical concerns including inquires related to surgical approaches to body contouring such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).
A traditional abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is a surgical procedure whereby Dr. Oldham is able to comprehensively reshape the abdominal region through a combined approach of liposuction, muscular rebuilding, and the removal of excess skin tissue. Performed through an incision along the lower abdomen, abdominoplasty proceeds by carefully removing fatty tissue using liposuction, re-suturing the abdominal wall for core strength, and trimming excess skin to produce a sleek, tight look. The surgery is best performed after your childbirthing years. It is not necessarily unadvisable to have a tummy tuck before pregnancy, but the results will certainly endure longer if the strength and sleek nature of the abdominal wall can be maintained as see in these patients before and after tummy tuck/abdominoplasty surgery.
