Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a board certified Bethesda plastic surgeon who specializes in body contouring procedures including full abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck). Modified abdominoplasty surgery with Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a good choice for any patient looking to tone their lower abdomen, an area that is often resistant to diet and exercise. Dr. Oldham has more than 25 years of experience performing mini tummy tuck surgery and was voted among Washington D.C.’s “Top Plastic Surgeons” by Washingtonian Magazine several years running. Results from mini tummy tuck include a flatter lower abdomen, and more toned abdominal skin as seen in these pictures before and after a modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck).
Patients often have several questions regarding mini tummy tuck surgery including price, recovery time, length of surgery, and level of discomfort. Mini tummy tuck surgery is performed in a time period of about 90-120 minutes. Because no excess tissue or skin is removed above the naval, the naval does not require relocation, as with full abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). Recovery time depends on the personal healing process of every patient but patients typically return to work after one week. Mini tummy tuck surgery, or any plastic surgery procedure can be performed on Fridays so that you have the weekend and the following week and weekend to recover. Pain associated with the surgery is described as mild soreness and tightness, discomfort that improves daily.
