Stubborn fat deposits in the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs can be difficult to lose in spite of regular exercise and a healthy diet. We can help you shed those last few pounds and achieve the sleek body lines that you want.

Dr. Roger Oldham can provide you with liposuction treatment at his Bethesda practice. This popular treatment has helped many to achieve the lean contours they desire. Contact our office today to learn more about how liposuction can enhance your appearance and your confidence.

The Consult

Your liposuction treatment will begin with a consultation with Dr. Oldham. At this time, you will discuss your treatment options and aesthetic goals, as well as your candidacy for liposuction. Candidates should be in good health and within 25 pounds of their ideal body weight. Patients should keep in mind that liposuction is not a weight loss treatment, but a body contouring procedure. After surgery, the scale may not show a dramatic change, but you can enjoy refined body contours and increased self-confidence. During your consult, Dr. Oldham will also review risks, benefits, recovery, and the overall cost of the procedure.

The Procedure

Your procedure will begin with an anesthetic to maintain your comfort. Once you are asleep, a small incision is made at the surgical site through which a thin, tubular devise called a cannula is inserted. The cannula will be used to gently break up the fat cells and suction them away. After the desired amount of fat has been removed, the incision site is sutured closed.

Liposuction can enhance the results of other procedures. It is often combined with breast augmentation, breast lift, or arm lift to provide stunning, overall results.

Liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis, and recovery takes place in the comfort of your own home. Expect to wear bandages, tape, and possibly a support garment to reduce swelling and bruising. Most patients can return to work and limited daily activities within a few days, although bruising typically lasts longer. The duration of your recovery will depend on the extent of your liposuction, and whether it was combined with other cosmetic procedures. 


As with any surgery, there are risks associated with liposuction, uneven skin surface, infection, fluid imbalance, and embolism, or the entering of fat into the blood vessels are all possible. The risk of these complications can be significantly reduced when they are performed by an experienced and skilled surgeon like Dr. Oldham. One of the most important steps in your liposuction procedure is choosing a reputable surgeon who has helped others achieve satisfying long-term results. Dr. Oldham makes safety a priority, and will take ample time to plan a procedure that will provide you with the results you want.


Benefits of liposuction include:

  • Improved body contours
  • Boosted self-image
  • The ability to wear more flattering clothing
  • Greater confidence when wearing bathing suits and other revealing clothing
