Josh E. Roller, MD
Bariatric & Aesthetic Surgeon – Fayetteville
Dr. Roller moved to Northwest Arkansas in August 2007 after completing a Minimally Invasive Surgical Fellowship in Bariatric and Advanced Laparoscopic General Surgery at Duke University Medical Center, one of the premier bariatric surgery centers in the country. Dr. Roller has performed more than 7,000 bariatric procedures (weight loss surgeries), including the laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, lap gastric banding, the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, and the Laparoscopic Duodenal Switch with outstanding weight loss results. Dr. Roller was the 1st fellowship-trained bariatric surgeon and advanced laparoscopic surgeon in the State of Arkansas. Dr. Roller performs state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgical procedures, using the same techniques and methods to perform the procedures that you will find at major medical centers across the country. Dr. Roller is a national instructor and surgeons from across the country travel to NWA to observe Dr. Roller and his techniques.
As one of the nation’s leading Bariatric Surgeons, Dr. Roller has helped thousands of patients lose hundreds of thousands of pounds. One of the biggest concerns Bariatric surgery patients have is “loose skin”. Although loose skin is not life-threatening like Obesity, it can impact how our patients see themselves and their self-image. During his time as an advanced minimally invasive surgeon, many of his patients have undergone skin removal surgeries by plastic and cosmetic surgeons. Patients describe these procedures as very painful leaving large, unsightly scars and are much more difficult to recover from, especially compared to their Weight loss surgery. Additionally, the costs for these “surgeries” were so high that many patients couldn’t afford to do them especially when the recovery from these “skin removal” procedures ranges from weeks to months.
Dr. Roller began to research minimally invasive techniques for loose, saggy and wrinkly skin after weight loss, having babies, or aging, but desired to find technology that would provide his patients with minimally invasive options, not maximally invasive surgeries. After extensive research, Dr. Roller discovered Inmode, the makers of Bodytite/facetite . This market-leading body-contouring technology can be used on many areas of the body and can help improve skin laxity after weight loss and pregnancy or due to aging. It is also great for removing those last stubborn areas of fat that just can’t be lost no matter how much weight one loses.
Dr. Roller has become the most experienced minimally-invasive Aesthetic Surgeon in NWA. His results have been so good using this technology, he is now a National Trainer for Inmode, the company behind the Bodytite and Facetite procedures. Doctors travel from across the country to train and learn from Dr. Roller. He has also lectured at many National Conferences on his techniques with minimally-invasive skin tightening. Dr. Roller has furthered his training by working and training closely some of the Nation’s leading experts in Plastic Surgery and the Bodytite/Facetite procedures. Since starting these procedures for the patients in NWA, he has had some tremendous success in treating loose, saggy skin and stubborn areas of fat after weight loss and aging. Dr. Roller was the 1st in NWA to offer this amazing technology.
In addition to the minimally invasive skin tightening procedures that Dr. Roller offers, both he and Dr. Kristin Roller have acquired and learned many non-invasive techniques for treating loose, saggy and wrinkly skin, and the effects of aging on skin. As opposed to Plastic/Cosmetic surgeons who generally want to operate, the team at Radiance is focused on helping patients achieve their goals through the least invasive techniques possible. Dr. Josh and Kristin Roller have seen more loose skin than anyone in NWA over the past 13 years after helping patients lose so much weight. Now they can offer their patients, and everyone in Northwest Arkansas, the latest in minimally-invasive and non-invasive skin tightening and rejuvenation techniques.
