With some exercise and diet regimens, the targeting of specific fat deposits is nearly impossible and quickly becomes a frustrating yet fruitless pursuit. For more than 25 years, Dr. Roger J. Oldham has helped men and women relieve frustration and find a much better way: body contouring cosmetic plastic surgery procedures. Tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, and Liposuction are three successfully and popular procedures that help patients complement their healthy lifestyle and workout efforts with a little bit of help. While tummy tuck surgery and its modification are specifically used to target abdominal fat, liposuction is very versatile and can be used almost anywhere on the body.
With this less invasive procedure, Dr. Oldham is able to target very specific sites of fat for removal. The second benefit includes minimal scarring. Liposuction scars tend to be hidden in inconspicuous locations (such as under natural folds or contours of the body) and once healed, are no longer than one quarter of an inch. Liposuction recovery then, is a bit different from other procedures. Because fat and muscle tissue is often in close proximity to one another, muscle soreness after liposuction is common and usually subsides within just a few days.

When you call Dr. Oldham's Bethesda office to schedule your personal consultation, be sure to ask to speak to Janet, our patient counselor, who can provide a liposuction estimate. Once you have seen Dr. Oldham, this estimate can be confirmed and your surgery date can be scheduled.
