What is belly button surgery?
Belly button surgery, medically known as umbilicoplasty, is a procedure to enhance the appearance of the navel. The surgery is quite simple and 100% successful. It can be performed as a cosmetic procedure to reshape the belly button or as a medical surgery to repair an injured navel or treat belly button hernia. Umbilicoplasty is widely popular; especially among women who have gone through pregnancy or significant weight loss.
Most frequently, belly button surgery is performed as part of other abdominal-related procedures. During a tummy tuck surgery, for example, a proficient surgeon has to reshape or reposition the navel to offer satisfactory results. However, belly button surgery is gradually growing in popularity as a stand-alone plastic procedure as well.
How is belly button surgery performed?
Umbilicoplasty involves reshaping or repositioning the navel; or in some cases, creating a new one. During the procedure, the surgeon will alter the shape and/or size of the navel by either removing some parts of the skin or using sutures. Given the detailed nature of the procedure, performing a belly button surgery requires extensive knowledge of surgical techniques as well as a keen eye for aesthetic aspects.
Umbilicoplasty is usually performed under local anesthesia unless it is done in conjunction with a tummy tuck surgery. Bellybutton surgery usually takes less than one hour.
What are the benefits of umbilicoplasty?
An umbilicoplasty is not only a very quick and painless procedure but also extremely effective in providing the desired results you seek. There are several ways in which a bellybutton surgery can help those who are too unhappy with the look of their navel.
Outie to innie surgery
One of the most common reasons to opt for an umbilicoplasty is having an outie. That is, the person’s navel has a bulging appearance. This usually happens as a result of how the newborn’s umbilical cord is cut. Although having an outie is not normally something to be worried about, many people would rather have an innie belly button. Umbilicoplasty can offer the sought-after result in a quick and painless procedure.
Belly button surgery after pregnancy
Bellybutton surgery is one of the most popular procedures women seek after pregnancy. A pregnant belly and the excess weight that follows can take a toll on the natural appearance of your belly button. Sometimes the outie that appears as a result of the pregnancy won’t go away after the childbirth. Other times, women might end up with an enlarged navel.
While abdominoplasty is a common go-to plastic surgery after giving birth, not all people are willing to go through the complex surgery. A belly button lift can counter the effects of pregnancy on the navel while being less complex than procedures such as a tummy tuck.
Belly button revision after tummy tuck
Abdominoplasty is a plastic surgery that involves removing excess skin and tissue in the abdomen area. The procedure also entails altering the position/shape of the belly button.
Sometimes, patients are unhappy with the appearance of their bellybutton after a tummy tuck. A revision umbilicoplasty can be performed 6 months to a year after the initial tummy tuck surgery to restore the appealing appearance of your belly button.
Umbilical Hernia Repair
An umbilical hernia is a medical condition that results in a belly button bulge. As opposed to having an outie since infancy, an umbilical hernia occurs following pregnancy or heavy exertion. Having umbilicoplasty to repair an umbilical hernia is a medical procedure rather than a cosmetic surgery. Because if left untreated, umbilical hernia might lead to discomfort and functional problems.
Belly button piercing scar revision
Last but not least, belly button surgery can be effective in removing the scars left from a piercing injury that has gone bad. If you are unhappy with how your belly button looks within years after having a piercing, you can have a consultation with your surgeon to find out if the bellybutton procedure can be an option for you.
Who is considered an ideal candidate for umbilicoplasty?
Umbilicoplasty is an appropriate procedure for anyone who is in good physical health and has issues regarding the appearance of their navel. An ideal candidate for belly butting surgery is someone who also has realistic expectations about the result of the surgery.
Although belly button surgery is a stand-alone procedure, it can also be performed in conjunction with other abdomen-related surgeries. Men and women who are concerned about the look of their midriff often find it more beneficial to go through abdominoplasty or liposuction as well as belly button surgery to secure a more satisfactory end result.

- Stop smoking and drinking alcohol for at least two weeks before the surgery.
- Do not take anti-inflammatory products in the weeks leading up to the surgery.
What should I expect after belly button surgery?
You will likely leave the hospital on the same day as the surgery. A Band-Aid will be covering your navel for about a week. And in a couple of days, you will probably see your surgeon as a follow-up appointment. For about 4 to 6 weeks after the surgery, you should avoid strenuous activities that could put pressure on your abdomen.
