In Bethesda, Maryland Dr. Roger J. Oldham has a plastic surgery practice which serves patients from all over the Washington D.C. area. His experience spans more than 20 years and his surgical skills including body contouring among dozens of other cosmetic procedures. Reshaping the body with procedures like liposuction and abdominoplasty is the most common plastic surgery approach and accounts for more than 300,000 procedures in 2010 alone.
But, the family of body contouring procedures isn’t complete until you factor in the customized modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck surgery) with Dr. Roger J. Oldham. A modified abdominoplasty is somewhat different from the two earlier mentioned, more traditional procedures. While liposuction is still primarily used in a modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck), the extent of it is less. With full tummy tuck procedure patients, the entire abdomen (upper and lower) is treated, meaning excess skin is removed and excess fatty tissue is removed using liposuction. With modified abdominoplasty, however, only the abdomen above the pubic area is treated, as seen in our photo gallery of patients before and after a modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck) with Dr. Oldham.
When you schedule your mini tummy tuck consultation with consultation, you will speak with our patient counselor and practice manager, Janet. Her extensive experience in plastic surgery administration will help you make important decisions about the procedure and whether full or modified abdominoplasty is right for you.
