In 2011 alone, nearly 20,000 men and women in the South Atlantic region elected to have tummy tuck surgery. Among those, Dr. Roger J. Oldham performed tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) procedures for men and women in the Washington D.C. and Bethesda areas. With more than 25 years of board certified practice in cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, Dr. Oldham is one of the area’s most experienced plastic surgeons. Patients seek an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) when traditional means of targeting fat are found less effective. After all, a number of factors determine each of our individual body compositions, including where we carry excess fatty tissue. Most often, this includes the abdomen, and most often, exercise is not enough.
With a tummy tuck, Dr. Oldham has been able to care for countless patients who are continually frustrated by the limited results they get from exercise and nutrition. An abdominoplasty procedure is recommended for those patients who have exhausted other options and who maintain an overall healthy lifestyle. Additional candidates include women post-pregnancy and patients whose abdominal walls have been weakened, causing the abdominal muscles to drift apart. With abdominoplasty, Dr. Oldham is not only able to remove excess skin and fat, but he also repairs this muscular weakening by suturing the abdominal wall in place, ensuring continued efforts at body contouring post-surgery can be most effective.
