ARE YOU UNHAPPY ABOUT THE APPEARANCE OF YOUR BELLY BUTTON? DOES YOUR BELLY BUTTON BOTHER YOU WHEN WEARING YOUR SWIMSUIT OR SHORT TOPS AND LOW CUT JEANS MAKE YOU SELF-CONSCIOUS?
There is a belly button reshaping procedure that can be tailored to the specific needs of each patient.
Belly button repair surgery is also known as an umbilicoplasty and can be performed on its own or at the same time as a tummy tuck or other cosmetic surgery procedure. This surgery can change the shape or size of your belly button. Belly button surgery can be performed under local anesthesia. Most patients are able to return to normal activity soon after surgery, but this depends upon the extensiveness of your surgery.
Patients can return to work or their daily activities the same day as surgery. The results of surgery are typically permanent as long as a patient does not gain a significant amount of weight or becomes pregnant following surgery.
Who Are Good Candidates For A Belly Button Repair Or Umbilicoplasty?
The ideal candidate for a belly button repair is a person who is unhappy with the size, shape and appearance of their belly button due to normal ageing, pregnancy, weight gain or loss, surgery or any other trauma. You should be in otherwise good health and have realistic expectations.
