Umbilicoplasty is a good option for people having badly shaped navel naturally formed at birth or have an umbilical hernia. It is a minor cosmetic surgery procedure that involves correcting the navel’s position, shape or size.
It is done usually for aesthetic purposes such as to create a vertical direction belly button or make a rounder or T shaped naval. Naval reshaping can also be done to enhance a tummy tuck or abdominal liposuction, to repair a belly button changed due to surgery, pregnancy, injury, ageing or weight loss and to reposition the belly button.
Take rest for a day before resuming normal day to day activities.
You are a suitable candidate for an Umbilicoplasty if
Umbilicoplasty is performed under local anesthesia. To change the position of the belly button, the skin around it is removed and navel is repositioned. To alter the shape of the belly button small incisions are made in and around it and then it is re-shaped.
As with all surgery, there is a possibility of bleeding and infection.
These surgeries are usually performed on an outpatient basis therefore you can return home on the same day. And the recovery period is usually 1 day.
In Umbilicoplasty surgery a local anesthetic with a sedative is used.
Most patients return to work the next day after the surgery.
