Umbilicoplasty or belly button reshaping is a cosmetic procedure that changes the appearance of the belly button. Umbilicoplasty may be for you if your belly button is bulging out instead of in and causing you self-confidence and body image issues.
Umbilicoplasty can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or in combination with umbilical hernia repair or a tummy tuck.
Who is umbilicoplasty suited for?
Umbilicoplasty is performed for cosmetic purposes as it helps improve self-confidence and satisfaction with body image.
The shape of the belly button can be affected by several factors, such as pregnancy, aging, trauma, hernia, or weight loss. Our experienced and western-trained surgeons can also repair belly button scars caused by piercing and create a new belly button after surgery in the abdomen.
How to prepare for this surgery?
Before the surgery, you will have a consultation with our surgeon to discuss your needs, check your medical history and ensure that you have realistic expectations about the surgery.
How is this surgery performed?
Belly button reshaping is performed as an outpatient procedure under local or general anesthesia. It takes one to two hours to complete, and you will be able to go home on the same day.
During the surgery, the surgeon makes incisions in hidden areas to avoid leaving any visible scarring. The technique used may differ depending on the shape of the belly button and the desired result.
You can expect some swelling and bruising for the first few days after the surgery, but that is expected and will resolve very quickly. You will be able to go back to work within two days after the surgery.
How much does belly button reshaping cost?
During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss several factors that determine the cost of this procedure. These factors include the technique and type of anesthesia used and whether umbilicoplasty is combined with another surgery.
