When you think of plastic surgery, what comes to mind? Breast augmentation? Facelift surgery? Botox? Would you think about going to a plastic surgeon to get skin lesions and moles removed? Would you be pleased to hear that each week dozens of patients in the Bethesda and Washington D.C. areas visit Dr. Roger J. Oldham for the ease and convenience of in-office skin lesion and mole removal. Dr. Oldham’s Bethesda, Maryland practice performs procedures in the Bethesda Surgery Center, an outpatient surgery center where Dr. Oldham does brief skin lesion and mole removal surgery using only local anesthesia. Most patients drive themselves home after the removal of a cyst or mole.
The benefit of skin lesion and mole removal with a plastic surgeon is the effort to minimize scarring. Dermatologists provide a valuable service and expertise by diagnosing skin lesions and recommending them for removal. Dr. Oldham’s colleagues often refer patients who have skin lesions in visible areas of the body for which the expertise of a plastic surgeon like Dr. Oldham could help to reduce the chance of unfavorable scars. Dr. Oldham has performed skin lesion removal for more than 25 years, and his experience is visible in these pictures of patients before and after mole removal.
When you call to schedule your skin lesion removal consultation with Dr. Oldham, Karen or Janet will help you with the process. Feel free to ask any questions you might have about price, scheduling the surgery, medications to avoid, and length of recovery.
