Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has been serving the Bethesda area for more than 25 years through countless liposuction procedures. Liposuction was one of the 5 most popular procedures among women in 2010, according to the American Society for Plastic Surgeons: a testament to its positive effects in healthy individuals whose body shape or genetics frustrate through stubborn deposits of fat around the abdomen, hips, or thighs. Liposuction is not for everyone, but can be a less-invasive plastic surgery option for patients whose skin has retained its elasticity. If your skin has lost firmness, perhaps a skin-tightening procedure (tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, or arm lift) may be a more appropriate procedure than liposuction.
Liposuction surgery (known in the industry as suction-assisted lipectomy) is a less-invasive procedure to remove excess fat from affected areas. Because of the lower instance of invasive techniques, patients who undergo liposuction experience minimal scarring that blends well into skin after healing. Liposuction of the abdomen, for example, can be performed by accessing the abdomen through the belly button or along the pubic region, and incision sites average about ¼ inch with smaller, inconspicuous scars remaining post-surgery. Because Dr. Oldham has been practicing for so many years, his reputation in Bethesda has earned him decades of loyal and satisfied patients, many of whom have undergone liposuction surgery.
