As a plastic surgeon in Bethesda, Maryland Dr. Roger J. Oldham has performed countless surgeries to care for patients seeking plastic surgery. Many men and women seek body contouring procedures like abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)to remove excess fat and skin from the abdomen. Because losing abdominal weight is so very difficult, healthy patients have begun to explore solutions like cosmetic surgery. Some prefer full abdominoplasty which treats both the upper and lower abdomen, and others elect for modified abdominoplasty or mini tummy tuck which treats only the lower abdomen. Either way, Dr. Oldham can help.
Abdominoplasty surgery is helpful for men and women who are frustrated with the effort of abdominal weight loss. Crunches, sit-ups, and other calisthenics simply cannot achieve the tone desired because the abdominal muscle wall is simply difficult to access. Only one muscle group is superficial enough to reach through exercise. With abdominoplasty, however, Dr. Oldham removes excess fat through liposuction and then sutures the abdominal wall back together. This strengthens the abdominal muscles and gives patients the dramatic results they desire. See the beautiful difference in these photos before and after tummy tuck/abdominoplasty surgery .
When you call Dr. Oldham to schedule your initial consultation, be sure to ask any questions you might have about the cost and benefits of abdominoplasty surgery, as well as a price estimate which can be given over the phone or via email.
