Moles and Lesions: “Watching for change is important,” says Dr. Roger J. Oldham, Bethesda Plastic Surgeon


In the past 25+ years, Dr. Roger J. Oldham has been invested in the skincare health of Bethesda men and women.  As a board certified cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon, Dr. Oldham provides care through surgical procedures like facelift, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), breast reduction, and liposuction, but also preventative skincare treatments like skin lesion and mole removal to hedge off pre-cancerous skin growths.  Dr. Oldham’s Bethesda office offers in-office mole removal  at the Bethesda Surgery Center, a convenient location that recognizes the constraints of your everyday schedule and provides efficient care in a friendly environment.

For many of us, moles and skin lesions develop as we age, and they can grow larger, darken, or even change shape.  “No change is good change,” says Dr. Oldham, who advises patients to follow the American Cancer Society’s ABCs when monitoring moles for change. Moles should be symmetrical and not Asymmetrical, their Borders should be clearly identifiable, their Color should be tan or brown, their Diameter should not extend beyond that of a pencil eraser, and, finally, any change or signs that the mole is Evolving means you should seek the opinion of a physician.  The benefits of seeking Dr. Oldham’s advice for your moles include in-office care through the Bethesda Surgery Center, and the results of mole removal with a plastic surgeon whose goal is to minimize scarring, especially on visible areas of the body as seen in these patients before and after skin lesion and mole removal.

In just two appointments, you could have the peace of mind that comes with skincare health.  During this call, you can also ask to set aside time for your brief mole removal procedure so that we can ensure it fits the needs of your schedule. Simply contact Dr. Oldham's Bethesda office to schedule your personal consultation.
